  • 60'
    An hour played and Samuel Eto'o's goal the only difference between the two teams. Brescia are preparing a change.

    Diamanti drifts a ball into the area but Maicon sees out Caracciolo. Kone tries again and sails the ball well over the bar.
  • 56'
    Yellow Card Panagiotis Kone
  • 55'
    A short corner for Inter and is played to Maicon and he picks out Sneijder 20-yards out and it's off the post!!! A fine effort from the playmaker. Brescia burst out the blocks and into attack, Kone is offside but stills hits the ball into the net; that is going to be a booking.

  • Inter lead at half-time 1-0 and they will be more than happy with that. Eto'o broke the deadlock from close range following Ranocchia's header but Brescia's poor finishing is costing them. The home side have had seven shots and only managed two on target. Join us back in 15 minutes for the second-half.
  • 45'
    Lucio makes a fine headed interception to get the ball out of danger but Julio Cesar had the same idea and punched his own defender. Lucio stayed down for a moment but looks fine.
  • 44'
    A poor shot from Diamanti rolls well wide of Julio Cesar's left post. He has scored some crackers this season and Inter will not want to give him so much space in that area again.
  • 43'
    Yellow Card Andrea Caracciolo
  • 43'
    Caracciolo has been booked following his tangle with the official, the captain was clearly unhappy the referee's position lost him the ball.

  • 39'

  • 39'
    Zebina goes into the ref's little book for a foul in the middle of the park. Ranocchia knocks it forward towards Pandev but Arcari races off his line to claim.

    Zambelli's cross finds Kone in the box at the near post, only for the midfielder to sail a second chance over.

    Zebina shouts at his midfield for not chasing his header, once more Inter move the ball back with their 'keeper and start to break Brescia down again.
  • 35'
    Chance for Brescia but Caracciolo can't get his lob under the bar. Lucio and Ranocchia were dragged out to the left leaving a huge gap for the captain to sneak in, but his first touch allowed Julio Cesar to close the angle and the ball lands on the roof of the net.
  • 33'
    Stankovic steals the ball back for Inter, as the blues started to threaten. The home fans are becoming frustrated this looks all too simple for the Serie A champions.
  • 32'
    Zanetti earns his side a free-kick wide on the right. Inter are happy to just keep possession for now.
  • 31'

  • 26'
    The midfielder hobbled off uncomfortably but it wasn't obvious how he picked up the knock.
  • 25'
    SubstitutionGaetano Berardi Fabio Daprelà
  • 25'
    The visitors kick the ball out for a Brescia player to receive treatment and Berardi is now being replaced.
  • 23'
    Sneijder shouts for handball 25-yards out but the referee isn't interested. Interesting to see the linesman had his arm up for Eto'o's goal but didn't put his flag up, the Cameroon international was very close to being offside.
  • 22'
    Ranocchia spins away from Caracciolo in his own box to make the clearance and Inter break quickly.

    Leonardo's men refuse to take their foot off the gas, Pandev this time trying his luck from 20-yards but fails to properly test Arcari.

    Brescia have a free-kick 40-yards from goal on the right, taken short but Zambelli's cross is poor.
  • 13'
    Nagatomo gets the better of Zambelli breaking down the left, the Japanese defender moves into the area and drills the ball at Arcari's near post, corner to Inter.
  • 12'
    Pazzini is lurking in some good positions for Inter but the ball over the top is just too long and runs through to Arcari.
  • 10'
    Sneijder flashes a shot a fraction wide of the left post following more good build-up play by Pandev. That was mighty close for the Dutchman.
  • 9'
    Caracciollo heads a decent effort but the striker places it straight at Julio Cesar.

    Pandev plays a neat backheel flick into the path of Pazzini on the edge of the box but the former Sampdoria striker can't reach the pass before his marker.
