Live Commentary

  • 90' + 4'
    That's it! Atalanta 1-1 Inter. The game ends all square as the points are shared in Bergamo.
  • 90' + 2'
    SubstitutionGermán Denis Manolo Gabbiadini
  • 90' + 2'
    Atalanta throw everyone forward for the final two minutes. They are going for it here.
  • 90'
    There will be four minutes of added time in Bergamo.
  • 89'
    Denis has gone from hero to villain as his penalty miss has cost them a likely win in Bergamo. Full credit to Inter and Castellazzi though.
  • 87'
    Chivu brings down Marilungo in the box! Penalty for Atalanta! Denis wants it ... Castellazzi saves Inter's face as he stops the striker from finding the winner. What a disaster for Atalanta.
  • 85'
    Five minutes remain in Bergamo. Claudio Ranieri smiles on the bench, but will Atalanta have the last laugh? There are some tired legs out there as Maicon fouls Lucchini.
  • 82'
    SubstitutionMaximiliano Moralez Guido Marilungo
  • 82'
    Masiello plays a long ball up field, but Chivu is taking no chances as he clears it into the stands. There's a strong feeling this is anyone's game.
  • 80'
    Chivu has been a distaster all night at centre-back as he puts Castellazzi into trouble with a woeful backpass. The Romanian celebrates his 31st birthday today, but he is the one giving out all the presents here.
  • 78'
    Both teams are looking for a winner. Milito!!!! GOALNO! NO NO NO!!! Maicon finds Milito unmarked, but he misses a sitter from point-blank range as he chests the ball over the bar. It was easier to score than miss!
  • 76'
    Pazzini causing all sorts of problems for his former side. The Italy international used to play for Atalanta before moving to Fiorentina, Sampdoria and then to Inter.
  • 75'
    SubstitutionLuca Cigarini Carlos Carmona
  • 74'
    Maicon tees up Stankovic! Ohh!!! The Sebian hits it with some venom to leave Consigli routed to the spot, but luckily for Atalanta it goes over.
  • 72'
    Pazzini uses space well to get away from his marker, but the powerful strike is the wrong side of Consigli's post. There is still plenty of time for both teams to find a winner.
  • 70'
    Moralez is definately the go-to man for Atalanta. He has been superb for his side. Lucio and Maicon have struggled all night against his pace and skill.
  • 67'
    SubstitutionMauro Zárate J. Obi
  • 67'
    Moralez leaves Maicon for dead and delivers another super cross. Schelotto ... no! He fails to time his run and the ball goes out of play. Inter's defence are all over the place. Sneijder's exit several minutes ago has take its toll on the team.
  • 65'
    OHHHH! Lucchini gifts it to Pazzini, but he blazes over the bar from six yards! It's an incredible miss by the Italy international. He really should have scored that one.
  • 63'
    Ohhh! Great skill by Moralez who cuts back inside and delivers a brilliant cross, eating Lucio for breakfast, but no-one is there to tap the ball home. Inter are starting to endure mixed fortunes.
  • 61'
    SubstitutionWesley Sneijder Giampaolo Pazzini
  • 61'
    Ohhhh! Great run by Zarate who skips past Masiello, but the finish is tipped around the post by Consigli. The Argentine has been excellent tonight. The corner for Inter is taken by Sneijder, but it misses everyone inside the box.
  • 59'
    Yellow Card E. Schelotto
  • 59'
    Ohhh! Schelotto's first-time pass almost finds Denis' run into the box, but Cambiasso sticks a foot out. Good attacking play from both teams here.
  • 57'
    Corner to Inter. Maicon delivers it deep, but it is cleared. Both sides are playing an open game with Atalanta looking dangerous.
  • 55'
    Stankovic who was already booked should have been sent off there. His arms were clearly raised against Schelotto. Inter are lucky to still have 11 men on the field.
  • 53'
    Stankovic with a challenge on Schelotto. The crowd are on their feet. Ohhh! The Serbian midfielder is lucky to escape there as Atalanta are awarded a free-kick. Cigarini takes it but Milito clears it to safety.
  • 51'
    Thiago Motta and Ivan Cordoba warm up for Claudio Ranieri's side - a sign there could be some changes.
  • 49'
    Throw in to Atalanta as Maicon is forced to clear fro Bonaventura. It's Bonaventura once again as he tests Castellazzi who makes an excellent save for Inter at his near post.
  • 47'
    Zarate looking dangerous once again as he goes for a left-foot strike, but it is blocked by the Atalanta defence. Inter have hit the ground running.
  • 46'
    SubstitutionJulio César Luca Castellazzi
  • 45'
    And we are back underway in Bergamo. Catsellazzi has come on for Julio Cesar who is unable to continue for Inter.
  • 45'
    The ref calls time on the first half. What a half! Atalanta 1-1 Inter at the interval. Sneijder for Inter to open the scoring, but Denis has responded.
  • 44'
    Assist Maximiliano Moralez
  • 44'
    Goal Germán Denis
    GOAL! ALL SQUARE IN BERGAMO AS DENIS HEADS HOME TO EQUALISE! Moralez with the cross, Denis with the finish. Where was Chivu? Awful defending. Full credit to Atalanta!
  • 43'
    Yellow Card Maximiliano Moralez
  • 41'
    Free-kick to Inter as Moralez fouls Sneijder. It's on the edge of the area and in Sneijder territory. Atalanta organise their wall. Sneijder shoots ... ohh! He goes for goal, but Consigli reacts well and makes the save.
  • 40'
    Yellow Card Cristian Chivu
  • 39'
    Inter break with Maicon as Moralez gives the ball away. The Milanese giants have grown in confidence since going ahead as we edge closer to half time. Zarate with the cross ... ohhh! Cambiasso cannot get on the end of it.
  • 37'
    Chivu gives away a free-kick, but Atalanta cannot seem to find a way back into the game after going a goal down. Nagatomo is forced to make a challenge on Schelotto, but the Japan international has been struggling tonight.
  • 34'
    It seems like Inter have a habit of scoring soon after 30 minutes of action as Thiago Motta's winner on Sunday against Chievo arrived on 33 minutes.
  • 32'
    Assist Mauro Zárate
  • 32'
    Goal Wesley Sneijder
    GOAL! SNEIJDER BREAKS THE DEADLOCK FOR INTER! The Dutchman drills a low shot past Consigli which goes in off the post. It's a perfect finish from Sneijder who scores his first of the season.
  • 30'
    Colantuono wants more aggression from his Atalanta players who are showing signs of life here and there. Half an hour gone here in Bergamo, but we are still seeing a blank scoresheet.
  • 28'
    Maicon gifts the ball to Moralez who plays it wide to Bonaventura. He delivers a great cross from the left, but Denis is slow in reacting to the move and the chance is wasted. Inter escape.
  • 26'
    Maicon does well with Milito as they play a one-two pass and move. The cross comes in, but Consigli scrambles across his goal to claim the ball
  • 24'
    Despite dominating, Inter are finding it hard to open up the opposition who are holding out well.
  • 21'
    Atalanta have little room to create as Inter continue to dominate. Cigarini tries to pick out Denis, but he is offside.
  • 19'
    Ohhh! Good run and shot by Sneijder. The ball takes a deflection off Lucchini and almost ends up rolling into his own net, but goes out instead. It's a corner to Inter. Sneijder takes it, but Stankovic's shot is awful and goes over.
  • 17'
    Yellow Card Dejan Stankovic
  • 17'
    Stankovic's shot from range is deflected out for a corner. Sneijder whips it in, but the ball is cleared. Inter are struggling in the final third despite their unchallenged command of possession.
  • 15'
    Zarate has a shot from distance ... Ohhh! He fails to test Consigli in goal for Atalanta as the ball flies over the crossbar.
  • 13'
    Denis runs at the Inter defence and goes for the shot from the edge of the area, but the ball deflects off Lucio for a corner. Atalanta waste the set piece as Inter clear their lines at the back.
  • 11'
    Milito goes down under a challenge from Capelli, and the free-kick goes Inter's way. It's been a bright start from both teams here, but nothing worthy of mention from the opening 10 minutes.
  • 9'
    Ohhh! Good ball played in by Maicon, but Milito fails to stretch his leg for it as Consigli makes an easy save for Atalanta.
  • 7'
    Ranieri is off his bench already as he issues instructions. Moralez wins another corner. It's whipped in, but Inter clear.
  • 5'
    Ohhh! Nagatomo gets a warning for a strong challenge on Schelotto. The free-kick is taken quickly by Atalanta and Moralez wins a corner for his team. OHH!! A free header for Padoin is saved by Julio Cesar. Inter look shaky early on.
  • 3'
    It's been raining heavily in Bergamo over the last few days and the pitch is looking heavy. Sneijder puts in a great ball into the box, but Lucchini is there to clear.
  • 1'
    The referee blows his whistle and we are away with Inter starting the game. Inter all in white. Atalanta in their black and blue kits.
