thumbnail Hello,

The Ducali played out an entertaining draw with the Beneamata in a rescheduled fixture at the Ennio Tardini. rates the players on show...


Mirante: 8
- He made several important saves to keep his side in the game, including a fine reflex stop from Diego Milito in the first half.

Dellafiore: 7 - Mopped up the loose balls in defence, and neither Cordoba nor Santon posed a great threat to him.

Zaccardo: 6.5 - Made a few errors and could have cost his team a goal in the opening minutes when he sliced the ball to Pandev but was generally solid.

Lucarelli: 7.5 - Very composed and competent in defence and starved the prolific duo of Eto'o and Milito of service.

Valiani: 6.5 - Pressed Cordoba incessantly to force him into errors. Had less impact against Santon, and was sent off with 20 minutes to go for a second yellow card.

Jimenez: 7.5 - He was the bright spark in Parma's midfield, switching the play to the flanks and keeping the ball away from Inter with some excellent skill.

Morrone: 7 - Combative performance in the middle of the pitch from the captain as he hassled and harried his opponents.

Galloppa: 5 - Frequently looked to take one touch too many, his passing was poor and he was off the pace throughout. Disappointing.

Castellini: 6 - Made some errors in possession and a number of attacks broke down on his flank.

Biabiany: 7 - Dropped back to help out defensively at set pieces with great effect, and his pace was a problem for Inter throughout the game.

Bojinov: 7 - Had to stay upfield while Biabiany dropped deep and was therefore a little peripheral, but he worked hard and scored a predator's goal in the second half.


Paloschi: 5.5 - He made little impact in the final 20 minutes.

Antonelli: 6 - Came on to plug the gaps after Parma went down to 10 men and defended well.


Julio Cesar: 6.5 - He made a fine save from Biabiany in the second half but in truth had little to deal with.

Maicon: 6 - Marauded down the right hand side but his crossing was below par tonight. Had a chance to win the game late on but skied his shot.

Lucio: 7 - Wasted a few free kick opportunities but was solid defensively, and made an excellent header to prevent Bojinov from having a simple chance to score. Unfortunately for him, Parma then scored from the resulting corner.

Materazzi: 6.5 - Made some fine tackles in defence and had a chance to win the game at the death, but he headed over the bar in the 94th minute.

Cordoba: 5.5 - Looked to be a weak link early on as Valiani ran at him and never really settled into the left-back role.

Zanetti: 6 - Struggled to deal with Biabiany's pace but pressured Parma well in midfield. Began to tire towards the end - a rare sign from the veteran.

Cambiasso: 5.5 - Typically understated performance but he was not as involved as usual, making just 42 passes all evening.

Motta: 5.5 - Not as alert as Bojinov as he reacted just too late to prevent the opening goal. Sacrificed as Mourinho threw on another striker after going 1-0 down.

Pandev: 6.5 - The most threatening of the attacking trident as he fired a number of shots from range, forcing Mirante into some good saves.

Milito: 5.5 - Quiet game by his high standards, and he should have done better with a left footed shot just after the half hour.

Eto'o: 5.5 - Linked well with Pandev but found himself with his back to goal more often than not. Drifted out of the game in the second half and was replaced with 20 minutes to go.


Balotelli: 7.5 - He was calm as he scored just minutes after coming onto the pitch, and Inter looked dangerous when he was in possession.

Santon: 6 - Made one excellent run across the pitch but also made a number of careless passes to gift possession back to Parma.

Mariga: 6.5 - Came on against his former side and showed his talent on the ball, supplying Balotelli with one sublime crossfield pass.
