    Néstor Muslera Micol

    A solid performance from the Uruguayan. Stood strong whenever needed and pulled off some good saves.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    A complete performance from the right-back. Defended superbly and was very dangerous going up the pitch. Should take some blame for Pandev's goal though.

  • Giuseppe Biava
    92

    0.00

    Giuseppe Biava

    Could have done better for Pandev's strike, but generally did well in defence. His positioning was questionable at times, but not for his goal as he was at the right place, at the right time.

  • Andrè Dias

    Andrè Dias

    A quiet, yet efficient performance from the defender. Hardly put a foot wrong all night.

  • Stefan Radu
    96
    13
    0.00

    Stefan Radu

    Offered fairly little in attack, but made Biabiany look like an amateur at times. Aside from a few mistakes in the first half, he did nothing wrong.

  • Cristian Brocchi
    123

    Cristian Brocchi

    Played like a man possessed tonight. Fought for every ball and showed tremendous work-rate.

  • Matuzalem
    112

    Matuzalem

    Wonderful performance from the Brazilian. Dictated the game from deep with some delightful passes and showed great vision.

  • Hernanes
    336
    6
    0.00

    Hernanes

    The ex-Sao Paolo man is already world-class at twenty-five. Wonderful free-kick and impeccable technique and passing tonight.

  • Stefano Mauri
    93
    18
    0.00

    Stefano Mauri

    A low key performance from the stand-in captain. Showed a few good touches, but seemed isolated for large parts of the game.

  • Mauro Zárate
    280

    0.00

    Mauro Zárate Top of the Match

    The Zarate Kid is back in with a shout. Fine finishing for his goal and made a nuisance of himself throughout the ninety minutes. Showed brilliant technique and dribbling.

  • Sergio Floccari
    94
    17
    0.00

    Sergio Floccari

    This was not his game tonight. Lacked ruthlessness in front of goal, and while he did impress with his off-the-ball play, more was expected of him.

  • Luca Castellazzi

    Luca Castellazzi

    He conceded three goals tonight, but cannot be blamed for any of them. Let down by poor defence.

  • Lúcio
    46
    82
    0.00

    Lúcio

    Caught out of position so many times tonight that it makes me cry a little. Recklessly galloped forward and left much space for Lazio to exploit. Did well whenever he was in his own box, which was actually rare tonight, and seems to have lost his quicksilver legs as he was not very dangerous in attack either.

  • Iván Ramiro Córdoba
    50
    69
    0.00

    Iván Ramiro Córdoba

    Made a few good interventions in the second half, but generally had an average game. His positioning was really questionable tonight.

  • Javier Zanetti
    85
    49
    0.00

    Javier Zanetti

    Ran and ran and ran, but to no avail. Neutralised Mauri in the first half and looked solid and motivated in defence, but his commitment was not matched by that of his colleagues at the back.

  • Felice Natalino
    74
    81
    0.00

    Felice Natalino

    One could question Rafael Benitez's decision to throw a youngster against one of the most gifted players in Serie A in Mauro Zarate. Looked out of his depth at times, at fault for Zarate's goal and lacked the mentality to perform well from start to end in such an important game.

  • Dejan Stankovic
    57
    64
    0.00

    Dejan Stankovic

    Hobbled off with an injury in the first half.

  • Sulley Muntari
    57
    96
    0.00

    Sulley Muntari

    One of his worst performance for Inter. Missed a couple of chances, was reckless in his tackling and distributed poorly.

  • Wesley Sneijder
    113
    207
    0.00

    Wesley Sneijder Flop of the Match

    Sent in few good shots from distance, even hit the bar in injury time. He did not receive much support in attack tonight.

  • Esteban Cambiasso
    71
    44
    0.00

    Esteban Cambiasso

    Tried really hard tonight, but was left on his own for most of the game in the centre of the pitch. Matuzalem and Hernanes were just unplayable, so it would be a little harsh to criticise him.

  • Goran Pandev
    158
    69
    0.00

    Goran Pandev

    Tried to do too much by himself tonight. He is not accustomed to spearheading the attack for Inter and it showed as he often strayed to the left flank. Seemed to lack communication with his team-mates in attack. Scored a decent goal though.

  • Jonathan Biabiany
    43
    85
    0.00

    Jonathan Biabiany

    Had many good minutes in the first half as Radu needed to settle into the game. From there on, it was all misplaced passes from the Frenchman and hopeless forays.

Substitutions

  • Thiago Motta
    42
    60
    0.00

    Thiago Motta

    Did not put up a fight in the centre of the pitch tonight. Sent in a dangerous shot shortly after coming on for Stankovic in the first half and this was all from him.

  • Denis Alibec
    61
    48
    0.00

    Denis Alibec

    The young striker could not make his way through a water-tight Lazio defence and could not influence the game in a significant way after coming on for Muntari.
