A magnificent performance from Mudingayi ensures the Nerazzurri go home with only a point...

    Emiliano Viviano Top of the Match

    Was barely tested in the first half but produced an excellent save to deny Sneijder from a free kick.

  • Andrea Esposito

    Andrea Esposito

    Did well against Eto'o in the first period but picked up a needless booking for bodychecking Sneijder on the counter.

  • Miguel Angel Britos

    Miguel Angel Britos

    Solid display, snuffed out any danger and brought the ball out of defence well.

  • Daniele Portanova

    3.00

    Daniele Portanova

    Won his duel with Milito, was like a shadow to the striker at times and did not give him an inch in which to operate.

  • Matteo Rubin

    Matteo Rubin

    Pandev was a mere spectator in the first half thanks to Rubin, we commanded his area well and even broke forward on occasion.

  • Federico Casarini
    22

    2.50

    Federico Casarini

    Got forward to help his attackers and placed some excellent pressure on the Inter back line.

  • Gaby Mudingayi
    59

    3.50

    Gaby Mudingayi

    Dominant in the centre of the pitch. His battle with Mariga was phenomenal. Positioning was excellent, he cut out many an Inter pass and screened the back line superbly. Was almost brought off until Di Vaio remonstrated for him to be kept on.

  • Albin Ekdal
    44

    2.50

    Albin Ekdal

    Did his fair share in the middle, supported well and helped out at the back. Taken off for Della Rocca after an hour.

  • Gyorgy Garics
    28
    6
    3.00

    Gyorgy Garics

    Gave Chivu a torrid time as he got in behind the full back and unlucky not to score as his first half snap shot was inches wide.

  • H. Giménez
    20

    2.50

    H. Giménez

    Another who worked tirelessly but his final ball was lacking. Could have scored early on but his chipped effort into an open goal went sailing over the crossbar.

  • Marco Di Vaio
    36
    15
    3.00

    Marco Di Vaio

    Worked hard against two powerhouse defenders and caused problems for them. Tired in the second half though as his age caught up with him.

Substitutions

  • Francesco Della Rocca
    23
    4
    3.00

    Francesco Della Rocca

    Steady when he came on and less adventurous in attack.

  • Riccardo Meggiorini
    24

    3.00

    Riccardo Meggiorini

    Worked hard when introduced but had to deal with an Inter in dominate mode.

  • Luca Siligardi
    21

    0.00

    Luca Siligardi

    Was almost brought on for Mudingayi earlier but eventually replaced Garics late on.

  • Julio César
    56
    28
    3.00

    Julio César

    Lack of communication with Lucio almost cost Inter but didn't have too many saves to make.

  • Javier Zanetti
    63
    36
    3.00

    Javier Zanetti

    Solid at the back but failed to provide the thrust going forward that Maicon does.

  • Lúcio
    53
    44
    2.50

    Lúcio

    A few lapses in concentration but put that behind him and powered on in the second half.

  • Walter Samuel
    43
    39
    3.00

    Walter Samuel

    Clashed heads with Di Vaio resulting in a cut forehead and had a tasty duel with the frontman.

  • Cristian Chivu
    38
    74
    2.50

    Cristian Chivu

    Somewhat suspect at full-back and was the weak link in the first period, but improved in the second half.

  • McDonald Mariga
    177
    61
    3.00

    McDonald Mariga

    Inter's workhorse, he was everywhere. Had the best chance in the first half for the visitors but his shot flashed wide. Booked for reacting to a bad challenge.

  • Esteban Cambiasso
    41
    52
    2.50

    Esteban Cambiasso

    Passed by in the first half but tried to drive his team to a winner in the second.

  • Wesley Sneijder
    123
    51
    3.50

    Wesley Sneijder

    All Inter's best attacking moves stemmed from the Dutchman. His set-pieces were causing huge problems for Viviano and he almost won it for his team with a deflected free kick right at the death.

  • Goran Pandev
    108
    196
    2.50

    Goran Pandev Flop of the Match

    Anonymous in the first half and hooked for Coutinho in the second.

  • Samuel Eto'o
    68
    81
    3.00

    Samuel Eto'o

    Did his best on the left flank, but Esposito dealt with him well. Looked more threatening as the game wore on.

  • Diego Milito
    61
    88
    2.50

    Diego Milito

    Worked tirelessly but seemed a yard off the pace.

Substitutions

  • Jonathan Biabiany
    44
    55
    0.00

    Jonathan Biabiany

    Late replacement for Milito.

  • Coutinho
    110
    72
    2.50

    Coutinho

    Looked lively when he came on but gave the ball away all too often.
