Untroubled while he was on the pitch, but a horrible lunge in the first-half on Zarate puts his questionable decision-making in the spotlight.
Forced to make a number of last-gasp interventions, as his leadership qualities and presence at the back proved indispensable to Inter, who would have definitely conceded more without him in defense.
A typically impressive full-back display, where he showed his usual quality down the right flank and also showed defensive solidity at times.
The ever-burgeoning full-back had a poor first half against Lichtsteiner, where he struggled to make an impact at all, but the second 45 was a completely different story, as he dazzled at times down the left.
Did not get as involved in his defensive work like his partner, but stood his ground against a dangerous Lazio attack. Signs that promising partnership may be blooming.
The veteran captain produced another admirable performance in midfield where he once again showcased his well-documented talents, and even managed to twinkle past 2 Lazio players near the corner flag. Simply legendary.
An influential midfield display for the first hour or so, where he looked neat and tidy in possession, whilst also powering attempts at goal. Unfortunately picked up an injury and was replaced by Mariga.
Industrious enough, but did not shield his defense quite as commandingly as he has showed he can. His impact and authority in midfield has seemingly dipped since Mourinho's departure.
The Dutchman, along with Eto'o, spearheaded virtually every Inter attack while he was on the pitch. Scored a magnificent free-kick to get this side on level terms and always looked for an opening.
Superb striking display from the Cameroonian hitman, as he scored the winner for his team, courtesy of a Biava slip, but always looked dangerous with the ball at his feet and showed fantastic movement all game.
One of the many documented strugglers in European football since the World Cup, he showed signs of his clinical edge returning with a couple of chances early on but was sacrificed for Julio Cesar's sending off.
Possibly could have done better with his positioning for the Sneijder goal, but made a number of impressive saves to keep his team in contention.
Although Nagatomo got the better of him towards the end of the match, it was very much the other way round for the first hour of the game as the Swiss wingback whipped in cross after cross and caused the Inter backline all sorts of problems.
Received a yellow card for his cynical tackle on Zanetti and was outclassed at times by Maicon.
Poor defensive display from the ex-Genoa man, whose mistake lead to Eto'os winner. Clumsy and nervous at times, it was a performance that won't live long in the memory.
Looked comfortable and assured with the ball in both defense and attack, and ensured danger was cleared.
Disappointing holding display in midfield, who was shown a yellow card in poor fashion and struggled to live with the tenacious Inter midfield.
A neat and tidy display from the attacking midfielder who, if not as ruthless as his counterpart Sneijder, was positive and made a number of key forward passes.
Lazio's most enterprising midfielder along with Hernanes, his attacking style had to be sacrificed after Mauri's sending off.
Very uninspiring and unproductive performance from the playmaker, who showed petulance in his sending-off.
Apart from a chance which was stolen from him by Lucio, he was ineffective and made little effort to get into the game. Substituted by the far better Rocchi.
Lazio's man of the match by a distance. Gave Inter's defense an afternoon of complete havoc and was explosive for the entire 90 minutes, whilst winning and scoring the penalty.
A reassuring performance from the ex-Sampdoria number one, as he dealt with everything that came his way and showed bravery to smother the ball through a melee in his own box.
- 26 C. Chivu
- 23 M. Materazzi
Late cameo from the Nigerian starlet.
Looked clumsy and struggled to adapt to the high tempo nature of the match. Lazio dominated the midfield battle since his introduction.
- 7 G. Pazzini
- 27 G. Pandev
- 12 T. Berni
- 5 L. Scaloni
Showed industry and quality on the ball upon his arrival. Almost set up Zarate expertly for an equalizer.
- 15 Álvaro González
- 81 S. Del Nero
Not quite as effective as Rocchi, but showed glimpses of his talent in his late cameo.
Very lively in his short spell on the pitch, who tried his utmost to force an equalizer for his team. Did far more in the time he was on the pitch than the hour or so Floccari appeared for.
