Made one great save late on in the first half, and should be credited for staying alert in what was, truth be told, a very quiet afternoon for the former Udinese goalkeeper.
A typical performance from the veteran, who was tireless as usual in shackling the Catania forwards and starting counterattacks. The 39-year-old continues to defy his age week after week.
Did his job well enough at the back, helping limit the Sicilians to a handful of chances, and was unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet when a late header crashed against the post.
Like the rest of his defensive colleagues, the Brazilian youngster enjoyed a quiet afternoon against a rather toothless Catania side. Did what he had to do well enough, though.
Was secure as ever at the back, and his neat array of passing helped set up some counterattacks. But, in truth, it was a quiet afternoon for the veteran.
His presence was barely noticeable throughout this encounter as he had little work to do. Withdrawn in favour of Guarin with 20 minutes to spare.
Set up Cassano's goal with a fantastic left-footed ball towards the far post, and was neat and classy in possession throughout. An excellent midfield performance from the Argentine.
A lively display from the Nigerian, who was constantly on hand at the back to help his defensive colleagues, and got forward well to help link up with the attack, showing off some neat touches. Forced one decent save with an effort from distance.
The first hour passed him by in a frustrating manner - the Argentine failed to impose himself on the match and was closely marked by the Sicilian defence, but found his feet later on, and played some great passes, not least for the second goal.
Missed an excellent chance to head Inter in front, and looked ever-so-slightly off the pace throughout the match, until the last five minutes when he scored a fantastic volley to open up his Nerazzurri account.
Was busy throughout the first half, linking midfield and attack, and got his reward with a well-taken headed goal. Constantly looked for
Perhaps could have done better with the first goal, but in truth, it was an excellent finish from Cassano, but had no chance with Palacio's goal. Made a decent save from Alvarez, though.
Perhaps came the closest out of his colleagues to getting a goal, forcing a great save from Handanovic in the first half, and setting up Izco for a header he should have taken.
His physical approach helped keep Milito quiet for much of the match, and Inter's failure to create a larger number of chances, was due to a stern defensive performance, in part.
Gave the ball away carelessly in his own half early on, and failed to keep a track of the movement of Palacio, Cassano and Milito. To compound matters, he picked up a silly yellow.
Like the rest of the Catania defence, Alvarez aside, the 35-year-old put in a steady performance on the day. Despite the result, he can be proud of his efforts.
Squandered arguably the best chance of the first half, failing to test Handanovic from close range, and did not particularly improve as the match wore on.
A sloppy performance from the 28-year-old midfielder, misplacing a number of passes, and failing to threaten the hosts with any of his numerous set pieces.
Posed the Inter defence a few problems with his pace and clever movement, did very little in the final third, all things told.
Another one of the visitors' ranks to be guilty of missing a great opportunity to equalise, heading wide after a great cross from Marchese.
Got forward well as Catania pushed for an equaliser late on, but, like the rest of his team-mates, was often lacking penetration.
An entirely anonymous performance from the No.9, who failed to make a nuisance of himself to the Inter back line, and drifted out of the match.
Within 15 minutes of his introduction, the former Velez Sarsfield midfielder had squandered two good opportunities.
Was neat and tidy throughout his half-hour cameo, without being overly impressive.
Made a great tackle to deny Gomez as Catania launched into a counterattack late on.
