Did not have many saves to make but was always alert in the event that any danger came his way.
Although his endeavour was never in question, the wing-back did not probe the Catania defence as he would have liked and disappointed with his deliveries into the box.
The discipline of his defensive partners meant he was allowed to provide an aerial threat from set-pieces and almost found the back of the net on a couple of occasions.
Although he defended well, the Brazilian lacked cutting-edge down the right and preferred to let his forward players do most of the attacking work.
The former Napoli man marshalled his fellow stoppers expertly, winning everything in the air and instilling composure within his backline.
Eventually won his duel with Leto after early signs of a difficult afternoon and cleared everything that came his way. Sacrificed in the second half.
A true lynchpin, the veteran showed the other 19 outfield players how to perform in the holding role. The only Inter midfielder with any personality.
Offered virtually nothing in an attacking sense but supported Cambiasso in breaking up play. His limitations meant he was replaced at half-time by Kovacic.
Had plenty of the ball but, time after time, failed to produce anything remotely substantial.
Although his build-up play was imaginative, Inter desperately needed him in the box more often, while he wasted a few opportunities from shooting positions.
The ex-Genoa star popped up all over the pitch, but his versatility cost him as he could not settle into a rhythm. Out of sync with the rest of his colleagues at times.
Made a string of fine saves, including a late instinctive stop to deny Rolando from heading home the winner.
A wonderful physical presence, the Uruguayan made numerous challenges both on the deck and in the air.
Although not quite as accomplished in possession as Peruzzi on the other side, the one-time Inter wing-back constantly played in his former club's half and always looked for link-ups.
A seasoned campaigner despite his tender years, the young stopper was equally as impressive as his centre-back partners before injury halted his afternoon.
Worked incredibly hard to track back and push forward in tandem during his time on the pitch and was replaced by Almiron once he ran out of steam.
The former Juventus defender's experience proved crucial as he constantly barked orders to the rest of his team and headed a few crosses clear.
Did not threaten much in an attacking sense, but his efforts to foil Inter worked a treat as he regularly won free kicks deep in Inter's half thanks to his tendencies to stay tight to opponents.
Izco and Rinaudo's efforts to hold the midfield together meant he was given the licence to function as the side's chief playmaker. Distributed the ball economically.
As debuts go, the Sporting Lisbon loanee's was up there. Gave an all-action performance, frequently recycling play and feeding Lodi to initiate counterattacks.
The captain's influence was evident as none of his colleagues stepped out of line. Did not fashion much in terms of attacking play but covered his base well.
The attacker was isolated for most part of the afternoon but did his best to involve himself when the opportunity arose. Nearly scored a wonderful solo effort from the edge of the box.
Struggled to find pockets of space and did not work hard enough off the ball but demonstrated a flair for playmaking when he did eventually receive the ball. Needs to be unleashed further up the pitch.
Injected bite into an Inter midfield which lacked any presence in Guarin's absence. Showed a promising appetite to drive forward in his side's hour of need.
