Succeeded in keeping his team in the match following a string of fine saves near the death which ultimately proved decisive.
A typically industrious shift from the Japanese wing-back, who offered a constant threat from the left wing and also dropped deep to support his side's three-man defence.
Solid defensively as Asamoah was denied space to exploit down the left flank, but on the one occasion he let his man pass, it proved fatal in the context of the final result. Also offered little attacking threat.
Gave away a couple of fouls, one of which proved worthy of a yellow card, yet he was assured for most part and kept up his concentration leves.
Struggled to live with the fluid movement of Tevez and co. and was guility of positional mis-haps and suspect offside traps initially, but greatly improved as the match wore on.
Looked to play the role of deep-lying playmaker at times with his efforts to start attacks from deep, but his passing was hit-and-miss at times. Defended well enough, though.
He may have supplied the assist for Icardi's opener and always showed an eye for a pass.
Industrious enough as he worked hard to win the ball back and break down attacks, but eventually ran out of steam. Replaced in the second half by Icardi.
A throw-back performance from the Argentine, who defied his advancing years with a general-esque showing - complete with an impressive range of passing and steely bite - in the middle of the park to push Vidal.
The Colombian failed to showcase his long-range shooting as he was forced to sacrifice his attacking tendencies in favour of a more disciplined showing - although he was found wanting with his marking of Vidal.
Stationed as an out-and-out striker yet continually had to drop deeper to help out his colleagues. Fired a succession of attempts at goal, but his overall team play was more important.
Always looked assured between the posts and made a couple of important saves to help the Bianconeri to an away point.
The gangly stopper was caught out for Icardi's opener after being robbed of possession near the halfway line, signalling a drop from his usual high standards.
Did not have a whole lot to do in comparison to his defensive partners, yet got on with his job without any qualms at the back.
The Swiss was not given a minute's rest from Nagatomo and his yellow card sealed his fate - sacrificed at half-time for Isla.
Did well in the heart of the champions' defence as he read the movement of Inter's attackers and continually intercepted danger.
The Chilean gave one of his poorest first-half displays, as he lost out to Cambiasso in the midfield battle, but admirably regained his composure after the restart with the equaliser and all-action display we are now accustomed to.
Inter's disciplined midfield meant the Frenchman's impact was significantly quelled, but he was still able to manage a few snapshots. Notably missed a close-range chance from Pirlo's flighted ball.
Was suffocated early on by Jonathan, but waited patiently for an opening and was rewarded with the powerful run which lead to Vidal's equaliser.
His set piece prowess was surprisingly absent, bar one effort in the first half and lost the ball on occasions, yet he always looked a threat with his long-range passing.
A constant thorn in the Inter backline throughout the 90 minutes, the Argentine dragged his markers all over the place as he surged forward with real intent and was not afraid to shoot.
A series of fancy flicks and tricks aside, he never looked truly threatening, as his partnership with Tevez soon burned out, and was replaced by the more-direct Quagliarella.
Put in a decent shift in the second-half absence of Lichtsteiner, but missed a glorious chance right at the end to secure all three points for his team.
The former Napoli and Sampdoria hitman was instantly more daring than Vucinic, as he got stuck in and offered a more direct threat than the Montenegrin.
