Goal.com rates the players on show in tonight's draw at the Giueseppe Meazza...

By Jonathan Mitchell

  • Julio César
    83
    28
    2.50

    Julio César

    Should maybe have done better with Guberti's goal but was generally sound apart from that.

  • Maicon
    79
    22
    3.00

    Maicon

    The Brazilian full-back got up and done the pitch but his final ball was lacking more often than not. Did have a fine angled drive cleared off the line in the second half.

  • Lúcio
    211
    19
    3.50

    Lúcio Top of the Match

    A colossal figure for the home side. Won everything at the back and made several strong forward runs.

  • Walter Samuel
    74
    16
    3.00

    Walter Samuel

    Leaves his central defensive partner to the artistic stuff and sticks to his task. Strong for the most part but had a few dodgy moments.

  • Cristian Chivu
    94
    75
    2.50

    Cristian Chivu

    The Romanian always seems to be at the heart of Inter's defensive problems. Alarmingly slack when he allowed Cassano to dispossess him and cross for Guberti to score.

  • Javier Zanetti
    164
    18
    3.00

    Javier Zanetti

    Veteran campaigner is still as classy as ever and kept things ticking over in midfield. Also popped up at the back to make a couple of crucial interventions.

  • Wesley Sneijder
    91
    41
    2.50

    Wesley Sneijder

    Forced to come deep to pick the ball up by the resilient display of Sampdoria's central midfield pairing. Never likely to hurt the Blucerchiati from that position.

  • Esteban Cambiasso
    74
    22
    3.00

    Esteban Cambiasso

    Tidy and composed in what he did but still hasn't found the superb form of last season.

  • Jonathan Biabiany
    86
    31
    2.50

    Jonathan Biabiany

    Young Frenchman struggled to make an impact on proceedings.

  • Samuel Eto'o
    208
    17
    3.00

    Samuel Eto'o

    Scored the all important equaliser and worked hard for the team.

  • Coutinho
    368
    23
    3.50

    Coutinho

    The nippy Brazilian youngster was Inter's star man. Ghosted past opponents as if they weren't there and provided the cross for Eto'o to score. This boy has a big future.

Substitutions

  • Davide Santon
    158
    8
    0.00

    Davide Santon

    Replaced Chivu and it will not be surprising to see him retain his place there in future.

  • Joel Obi
    59
    23
    0.00

    Joel Obi

    Came on for Coutinho and tried his best to influence the game in his short time on the park.

  • Goran Pandev
    89
    52
    3.00

    Goran Pandev

    Took Biabiany's place in the 63rd minute but struggled to get into the game.

  • Gianluca Curci
    40
    3
    3.00

    Gianluca Curci

    A safe pair of hands until his late withdrawal due to injury. Made strong saves to deny Lucio, Coutinho (twice) and Sneijder.

  • Massimo Volta
    23
    8
    3.00

    Massimo Volta

    Came in for Lucchini and did a sterling job at the back.

  • Luciano Zauri
    14
    7
    2.50

    Luciano Zauri

    The full-back had an up and down match. Made a few crucial interceptions and clearances but was given a very testing time by young Coutinho.

  • Daniele Gastaldello
    29
    8
    3.50

    Daniele Gastaldello

    Formed a solid central defensive pairing that managed to hold out until the 80th minute despite almost relentless Inter pressure.

  • Reto Ziegler
    15
    11
    2.50

    Reto Ziegler

    Kept a watchful eye on Jonathan Biabiany and limited the young Frenchman's impact on the game.

  • Stefano Guberti
    25
    7
    3.00

    Stefano Guberti

    Scored the opening goal with a well taken volley and provided a menace on the counter attack.

  • Fernando Tissone
    12
    12
    3.00

    Fernando Tissone

    The Argentinian midfielder made an imposing start and then worked hard to limit the opposition as Inter took control of the game.

  • Angelo Palombo
    26
    11
    3.00

    Angelo Palombo

    The Blucerchiati captain made a significant contribution by putting himself about at the heart of the midfield. Limited Sneijder's ability to influence the game.

  • V. Koman
    19
    19
    3.00

    V. Koman

    Offered an out ball on the counter attack but was not involved as much as he would have liked.

  • Antonio Cassano
    81
    8
    3.00

    Antonio Cassano

    Sampdoria's key man was at the heart of everything positive for his side. Made the assist from which Guberti opened the scoring and provided a creative spark on his side's rare forays forward.

  • Giampaolo Pazzini
    20
    33
    2.50

    Giampaolo Pazzini Flop of the Match

    Partnered Cassano up front but was given little change by Lucio and Samuel.

Substitutions

  • Angelo Da Costa
    14
    18
    2.50

    Angelo Da Costa

    Was called into action when Curci had to go off injured and conceded a goal two minutes after coming on.

  • Andrea Poli

    21

    Andrea Poli

    Replaced Tissone and was booked towards the end.
