  • 90' + 4'
    Pazzini had a wonderful chance to score, as he brings down a Koman cross, but he cannot direct his shot into the goal. Still goalless this season.

  • 88'
    Free-kick to Inter on the edge of the area, near the byeline. What can Sneijder do with it? But before he takes it, Coutinho off, Obi on.

    Marilungo has great vision to see Koman in space on the left, but it is a wasted chance, as the Hungarian fires over the crossbar.

  • 80'
    Goal Samuel Eto'o
  • 80'

  • 71'
    Marilungo on, Guberti off.
  • 69'
    What a chance for Inter! Both Coutinho and Sneijder miss and they could have equalised. The Brazilian set up the chance as Pandev returned his pass in space, but his left-foot shot was parried only as far as the Dutchman, whoe shot was blasted over the bar.
  • 68'

  • 63'
    SubstitutionJonathan Biabiany Goran Pandev

    Goal Stefano Guberti

  • 61'
    What a flick by Eto'o to the advancing Sneijder on the left wing. As he steams forward, the Dutchman tries to repay the favour, but the ref has seen a foul by the striker.
  • 58'
    Goal line clearance by Zauri on Maicon's shot, as Curci goes down in pain, clutching his back. Coutinho spots his team-mate at the back post, who controls the ball down and fires a shot, but Zauri stops the deadlock from being broken.

  • 52'
    Palombo looks to thread a pass through for the advancing Cassano, but it is hit too hard.
  • 50'
    Ziegler's flat cross for Pazzini was too far ahead of him, and Julio Cesar claims with ease.

  • 45'
    Yellow Card Massimo Volta

  • 40'
    Corner to Inter, with five minutes left in this first half.
  • 38'
    Guberti's shot is reflected off an Inter defender and out for a corner. What can Samp do? Cassano chooses to pass it to Guberti, but his cross is cleared away. Coutinho is on the end of it, and a counterattack occurs, as he burst forward.
  • 37'
    Zauri is now getting some treatment on his lower leg. He is forced off the field for the moment.
  • 36'
    Eto'o looks to take on Zauri on the left, by flicking a ball over the defender, but he reaches and headers away.
  • 34'

  • 32'
    Pazzini almost ended his goalscoring drought, as he had no right to get on the end of the move. Cassano's cross went to Guberti at the back post, who squares it for Pazzini, but as he was shooting, he slips and falls.
  • 31'
    Cambiasso tries to be a little tricky, and flick a pass over the Sam defence for the advancing Eto'o, but it is too long.
  • 30'

  • 28'
    Sampdoria have a rare moment of possession, and Lucio gives away a foul on Cassano, for making an illegal tackle on the Italy international. Taken quickly, the Blucerchiati are not able to capitalise on it, as Tissone gives it away.
  • 26'
    Another bit of wonderful build-up play, which started with Chivu on the left not giving up on a loose pass, eventually switching it to Maicon on the opposite side via Sneijder. The Brazilian crosses it in, but Volta's touch was just enough to get it away from the rising Eto'o.
  • 24'
    Zielger bowls over Eto'o on the right, and Inter take it quickly, with Maicon swinging a ball into the middle from the right, but no one is on the end of it.
  • 22'
    Palombo tries to launch Cassano with a perfectly-weighted long ball, but Lucio's headed pass to Cesar was in the nick of time.
  • 20'
    Maicon's early ball from the right is too long for Biabiany in the middle, but Coutinho almost got on the end of it at the back post.
  • 18'
    A barnstorming run by Lucio sees his shot run across goal, but Gastadello almost puts in the back of his own net, as the deflection/clearance nearly went in.
  • 17'
    Eto'o is double-teamed by the defence upon entering the penalty area, but spots Sneijder to his right, who squares it off to Coutinho, but he cannot turn his way on goal and shoot.
  • 16'
    The home side are happy to maintain possession, switching from one wing to the other and even pushing the ball back towards the half-way line. No gaps seem to be appearing in the Samp defence.
  • 15'
    A quarter of an hour gone, and the same is still 0-0, Inter look the more aggressive, but have been unlucky in front of goal.
  • 14'
    Sneijder's first-touch almost allowed the surging Cambiasso to come through and get a left-foot shot through, but he is well guarded by the Samp defence, as they scrappily get the ball away.

  • 8'
    Maicon beats Ziegler, and cuts a pass into Sneijder, who looks to advance it to Eto'o, but is closed down and the attack stopped.
  • 7'
    Wonderful build-p play by Sampdoria sees the ball shift from the left flank to the right, then move back into the middle to Tissone, who sees Guberti making a run on the right. He chooses to shoot, as he is allowed time and space, but it goes over the crossbar.
  • 4'
    Maicon and Eto'o exchange passes down the right, looking to open up the Samp defence, and almost do, but Gastadello positions himself well to stop the move from getting a shot on goal.
