Was barely tested in the first half but produced an excellent save to deny Sneijder from a free kick.
Pandev was a mere spectator in the first half thanks to Rubin, we commanded his area well and even broke forward on occasion.
Won his duel with Milito, was like a shadow to the striker at times and did not give him an inch in which to operate.
Did well against Eto'o in the first period but picked up a needless booking for bodychecking Sneijder on the counter.
Solid display, snuffed out any danger and brought the ball out of defence well.
Gave Chivu a torrid time as he got in behind the full back and unlucky not to score as his first half snap shot was inches wide.
Did his fair share in the middle, supported well and helped out at the back. Taken off for Della Rocca after an hour.
Dominant in the centre of the pitch. His battle with Mariga was phenomenal. Positioning was excellent, he cut out many an Inter pass and screened the back line superbly. Was almost brought off until Di Vaio remonstrated for him to be kept on.
Got forward to help his attackers and placed some excellent pressure on the Inter back line.
M. Di Vaio
Worked hard against two powerhouse defenders and caused problems for them. Tired in the second half though as his age caught up with him.
Another who worked tirelessly but his final ball was lacking. Could have scored early on but his chipped effort into an open goal went sailing over the crossbar.
Lack of communication with Lucio almost cost Inter but didn't have too many saves to make.
Solid at the back but failed to provide the thrust going forward that Maicon does.
Clashed heads with Di Vaio resulting in a cut forehead and had a tasty duel with the frontman.
A few lapses in concentration but put that behind him and powered on in the second half.
Somewhat suspect at full-back and was the weak link in the first period, but improved in the second half.
Inter's workhorse, he was everywhere. Had the best chance in the first half for the visitors but his shot flashed wide. Booked for reacting to a bad challenge.
All Inter's best attacking moves stemmed from the Dutchman. His set-pieces were causing huge problems for Viviano and he almost won it for his team with a deflected free kick right at the death.
Passed by in the first half but tried to drive his team to a winner in the second.
Did his best on the left flank, but Esposito dealt with him well. Looked more threatening as the game wore on.
Worked tirelessly but seemed a yard off the pace.
Anonymous in the first half and hooked for Coutinho in the second.
- 22 C. Lupatelli
- 21 N. Cherubin
- 18 V. Moras
F. Della Rocca
Steady when he came on and less adventurous in attack.
- 35 D. Paponi
Was almost brought on for Mudingayi earlier but eventually replaced Garics late on.
Worked hard when introduced but had to deal with an Inter in dominate mode.
