    Zeljko Brkic

    Held off the second half Inter pressure with two fine saves from Guarin and Palacio.

  • Danilo
    14

    3.50

    Danilo

    The Brazilian was impervious in the Udinese backline, dealing with the threat of Cassano and Palacio easily enough.

  • Dušan Basta
    32
    3
    4.00

    Dušan Basta

    Impressively set up Muriel's goal with an excellent disguised pass 15 minutes from time and was fantastic from a defensive perspective.

  • Maurizio Domizzi
    10
    5
    3.00

    Maurizio Domizzi

    Was lucky not to have been dismissed in the first half for a foul on Palacio which the referee deemed to have been a dive, but quietly went about his business thereafter.

  • Giovanni Pasquale
    11

    3.50

    Giovanni Pasquale

    Dealt with the threat of Jonathan competently, while pushing forward well to support the attack.

  • Thomas Heurtaux

    3.00

    Thomas Heurtaux

    Solid afternoon for the Frenchman in the Udinese backline alongside Danilo and Domizzi.

  • Allan
    7
    2
    3.00

    Allan

    Impressive in the midfield and ensured Guarin and Gargano were kept in check during the encounter.

  • Andrea Lazzari
    19
    1
    4.00

    Andrea Lazzari

    A menace all afternoon and helped himself to two assists, setting up Di Natale for the Italian's brace.

  • Roberto Pereyra
    15
    2
    3.50

    Roberto Pereyra

    A constant thorn in the side of the Inter defence during what was an impressive afternoon for the Argentine.

  • Antonio Di Natale
    72
    5
    5.00

    Antonio Di Natale Top of the Match

    Grabbed himself a brace and was a thorn in the side of the Inter backline all game. Struck he bar with a thumping free kick in the first half before making his mark in style in the second.

  • Muriel
    35
    0
    3.50

    Muriel

    Mustered the first shot on target of the encounter and helped himself to a well-deserved goal with 15 minutes to go. Also worth noting that it was he who had been hacked down by Juan Jesus.

Substitutions

  • Mathias Ranégie
    5
    3
    2.00

    Mathias Ranégie

    Came on in the 88th minute and had no time to make an impact.

  • Maicosuel
    4
    3
    2.00

    Maicosuel

    Came on in the 81st and was unable to impose himself on the proceedings.

  • Samir Handanoviç
    40
    15
    3.00

    Samir Handanoviç

    Got a hand to Di Natale's opener, but was let down by the defensive failings of his backline. Could do nothing for Muriel's effort and Di Natale's second.

  • Javier Zanetti
    49
    14
    3.00

    Javier Zanetti

    A solid performance from the Argentine veteran, who defended astutely and broke forward well.

  • Walter Samuel
    11
    34
    2.00

    Walter Samuel

    Disappointing afternoon for the Argentine, who often looked lost without Ranocchia beside him.

  • Á. Pereira
    8
    37
    2.50

    Á. Pereira

    Booked in the first half and it can be argued he was lucky to stay on the pitch. Failed to provide the attacking threat he's capable of.

  • Juan Jesus
    13
    39
    1.50

    Juan Jesus

    Sent off for a second booking following a foul on Muriel. Struggled with Di Natale and his red card effectively sealed Inter's fate.

  • Jonathan
    9
    70
    1.00

    Jonathan Flop of the Match

    A desperately poor game for the Brazilian, who could've netted five minutes into the second half, only to inexplicably shoot wide from six yards out.

  • Fredy Guarín
    41
    11
    2.50

    Fredy Guarín

    Denied by Brkic early in the second half, but was largely ineffectual in an encounter he'll want to swiftly forget.

  • Esteban Cambiasso
    16
    34
    1.50

    Esteban Cambiasso

    Out of position and it showed, being beaten to the ball for Di Natale's second late on.

  • Walter Gargano
    8
    42
    2.50

    Walter Gargano

    Unable to exert himself on the encounter, despite coming close to opening the scoring in the first half, forcing a good save from Brkic.

  • Rodrigo Palacio
    10
    45
    2.50

    Rodrigo Palacio

    Booked in the first half for an alleged dive and saw an impressive effort denied by Brkic prior to Di Natale's opener. Disappointingly quiet overall.

  • Antonio Cassano
    52
    21
    3.50

    Antonio Cassano

    Undoubtedly Inter's main creative threat, with his incisive passing and clever movement, but was unable to make his mark.

Substitutions

  • Matías Silvestre
    6
    40
    2.00

    Matías Silvestre

    Came on in the 82nd minute but still managed to look horribly vulnerable in such a short space of time.

  • Joseph Duncan
    14
    20
    2.50

    Joseph Duncan

    Saw a second half effort blocked, but did little of note as Udinese comfortably saw out the game.

  • Tommaso Rocchi
    14
    26
    2.00

    Tommaso Rocchi

    Came on in the 77th minute but did nothing of note.
