Inter claimed the 2011 Trofeo TIM after Diego Milito earned them a 1-0 victory over AC Milan at the San Nicola in Bari.

The result followed up their earlier win on penalties over Juventus, who then saw off Milan with an injury-time winner.

It wasn't the fastest of paces that the final 45-minute clash started at, but chances were still created at both ends.

After a seemingly endless run by Antonio Cassano, Urby Emanuelson sidefooted too close to Luca Castellazzi and moments later they were almost made to pay as Milito curled a free-kick against the crossbar.

Milan fashioned another chance in the 18th minute when Ignazio Abate made an excellent run to the byline and crossed for Kingsley Boateng, whose header tested Castellazzi but wasn't quite placed well enough to beat the Inter No.12.

As half-chances continued to arrive, Diego Milito provided the striker's instinct in the 28th minute as he raced onto a throughball in the left channel, getting in between Massimo Oddo and Marco Amelia to fire the bouncing ball into the net with the outside of his right foot.

Gian Piero Gasperini immediately brought on Wesley Sneijder for Thiago Motta in an attempt to ram home the advantage, but it was Milan who had the best chance to score, with Castellazzi having to parry an effort from Simone Ganz.

The champions were unable to break through though, as they ended the night with a second defeat, handing the honours for the evening to Gasperini's side.

Results: Inter 1-1 Juventus (6-5 on pens); Juventus 2-1 AC Milan; AC Milan 0-1 Inter
