    Time:90'
    • Catania
    • Internazionale
    • - Inter move away from Catania, who could have gone above them with a win. Five points the difference now. Standings
    • - So has Stramaccioni saved his job with that second-half showing from his players? Are Inter rudderless without Palacio? Tweet/follow me @symco_eurosport
    • 90+4' Catania unable to orchestrate another attack as Inter complete a remarkable turnaround - they were 3-0 down at HT when Palacio came on.
    • 90+2' PALACIO SCORES THE WINNER FOR INTER! 3-2! He arrives to fire home from a Cambiasso cut-back!
    • 90' Four minutes to be added on as Catania waste an opportunity.
    • 89' Cross into the middle won by Cambiasso and the ball comes back to him - free in the box - via Palacio and Schelotto: he pulls his finish wide of the far post! Golden chance!
    • 86' Chivu down hurt now as the game turns nasty. Niggly tackles all over.
    • 85' Catania change: Cani on for Bergessio.
    • 84' A fight then ensues following a tangle on the touchline, with Gomez and Alvarez of Inter involved. Schelotto doesn't help by shoving a Catania player who was looking the other way...
    • 84' Great chance goes begging for Inter! Schelotto has a free path to goal on the right but his shot then follow-up are both blocked by Andujar.
    • 83' Gomez with a wild half-volley wide of the far top corner. Waste from Catania again.
    • 82' Zanetti can only head a diagonal ball from Catania out for a throw. The home fans build in excitement.
    • 81' He returns to the fray - probably because Inter have no more subs.
    • 80' Schelotto down hurt after a challenge in midfield. He is carried off.
    • 78' Gomez shifts the ball from his left to right foot on the left side of the pitch and fires well wide of the far post.
    • 77' Inter change: Esteban Cambiasso on for Guarin. And Catania too make a sub: Sergio Almiron on for Marco Biagianti.
    • 76' Catania doing the attacking now.
    • 75' Palacio found on the right and moves outside his man down the side of the box before firing a clever cut-back through the retreating defenders - no one there to meet it, though.
    • 74' Palacio just unable to get a foot on to the ball in the other box as a Catania defender flies across to put him off.
    • 73' Bergessio goes down in the box under a challenge as Gomez looks for his feet, but the ref is unmoved. Catania's fans are furious.
    • 71' Well what a difference the Argentine has made, as predicted... he isn't 100 per cent fit, which is why he didn't start.
    • 70' GOAL FOR INTER! 2-2! PALACIO! He is alone to nod Pereira's cross from the left past Andujar!
    • 69' Gomez dummies an Izco cross for Castro to strike for goal... blocked and Bergessio is there to contest the rebound with Handanovic, but he is a yard offside. There is a set-to as the Inter keeper is unhappy with the challenge.
    • 68' Guarin attacks a cross into the box only to direct his header over. He screams his frustration.
    • 66' Inter are looking better, but Catania have space to attack in the away side's half. Should Stramaccioni keep his job? Tweet/follow me @symco_eurosport
    • 64' Palacio fails to hold his run as Schelotto telegraphs a ball down the wing for him.
    • 63' Tiny trickster Gomez working his way across the face of the box from left to right, sets himself up for a shot... blocked and Marchese cannot get on the rebound.
    • 62' Bergessio lurking inside the box for the hosts, but Juan defends well this time to defend against the cross. He does take time on the ball when in his own box though.
    • 61' Guarin is back on and his lack of mobility is betrayed as he gives away a foul.
    • 60' Inter looking more lively after a shocking first half. They are still vulnerable on the break though.
    • 59' He limps off with a leg problem and could be out of this match.
    • 58' Guarin hurt after bundling into Catania's Alvarez under a dropping ball.
    • 56' Palacio looks to spin with the ball down the right wing over halfway and is taken out by a reckless tackle from Rolin. Yellow card for the Catania centre-half.
    • 55' Catania head clear and break with Castro looking for Bergessio in the middle, but he should have held on to the ball with three backtracking Inter players in close attendance.
    • 54' The busy Pereira wins a corner as he attacks the left byline. The ref has words with Juan and Gomez before it is taken - no pushing in the box, fellas.
    • 53' Game on! Inter on the comeback trail.
    • 52' GOAL FOR INTER! ALVAREZ! They now trail 2-1: Palacio with a clever run down the right to latch on to a pass from Pereira. He spins to cross into the danger area, where Alvarez arrives to nod past Andujar.
    • 51' Guarin rampaging down the right and into the box before striking for goal - a yard wide of the far post. Inter beginning to threaten.
    • 50' Palacio goes down, falling backward under a challenge from Nicolas Spolli, but the referee waves his appeals away.
    • 48' Catania break... Gomez skips over halfway on the right and plays a great ball to Bergessio, free on the far side - Handanovic does brilliantly to block his shot! Should have been three.
    • 47' Andujar claims a catch under pressure as Inter pile forward.
    • 46' Eventually a man with greater experience is called in to do the job. And we can start the second half.
    • - There is a long delay as some kid in a Catania employee's bib tries to fix one of the stanchions. He's got tape out...
    • - Inter changes: Dejan Stankovic and Rodrigo Palacio on for Kuzmanovic and Rocchi. Palacio especially could make a difference.
    • 45+2' Chivu again unable to meet the cross; Inter then probe from outside the box, but Catania see out the half. 2-0 to them.
    • 45+1' Alvarez penalised for a foul on Inter namesake Alvarez - the Catania coach, Rolando Maran, has words with the nearby ref.
    • 45' Guarin looks for the feet of Rocchi in the box, without joy. Two minutes to be added on.
    • 44' Marchese flicks a header away from Guarin as he ghosts in at the far post. Catania will be happy with a two-goal advantage at the break if they can see it out.
    • 43' Zanetti attacks the right flank, sending in a cross that takes a deflection and is claimed by home keeper Andujar.
    • 41' Pereira lucky to win a corner off Alvarez. Again, Catania are not troubled by the delivery.
    • 40' Gomez looks for a one-two with Lodi, bursting down the right flank behind Pereira, but the ball runs out for a goal-kick.
    • 38' The cross from Guarin's set-piece is missed completely by Juan. When the ball comes back out to the left, Guarin looks to go past a defender and is dispossessed. Too easy.
    • 37' Pereira looking to break past Alvarez, but the Catania man's hand blocks the rising ball... yellow card.
    • 35' Scores and scores from other Serie A matches. Latest
    • 34' After a short break for treatment - he will be okay - the kick is pumped into the box and Catania head clear.
    • 30' Chivu attacks a corner, but is beaten in the air. When Inter gets the ball back over, Schelotto gets a head to the ball but does not trouble Mariano Andujar.
    • 28' At the other Rocchi is thwarted. Alvaro Pereira is running about like a madman, trying to get his side back in this, and committing a few fouls.
    • 27' Gomez looking to get the ball into the box, but Inter defend the cross.
    • 25' Chivu and Bergessio challenge for the ball, with both seemingly hurt after tangling arms with faces. They will be okay to continue after a break.
    • 22' Rocchi attacks the ball in the box, but is crowded out.
    • 21' Inter under pressure - they will have to commit men forward now. They could do with Cassano...
    • 19' GOAL FOR CATANIA! GIOVANNI MARCHESE! 2-0! Francesco Lodi lofts a free-kick into the box and the defender flicks a brilliant header into the far corner!
    • 18' Serbia midfielder Kuzmanovic then flies forward with the ball and lets rip from fully 30 yards, a few yards wide. Would have looked better from the granstand than behind the goal.
    • 18' Guarin with a third terrible shot from way out, this one low and blocked easily.
    • 17' Alejandro Gomez managed to keep the ball in play for Catania after a team-mate wins the tackle. Inter win it back quickly though. Cagey match.
    • 16' Better from Inter, who are whistled by the fans inside this Stadio Angelo Massimino. Not going anywhere with their passing, though.
    • 15' Struggling Palermo managed a fortuitous goalless draw at Torino on Sunday as Gian Piero Gasperini began his second stint as their coach almost exactly a month after being fired. Palermo draw as Gasperini returns a month after sacking
    • 14' Lucas Castro with a shot on the turn from outside the box for Catania which Handanovic gets down well to save.
    • 12' Inter's Colombian midfielder Fredy Guarin has a second dig from distance that flies well over. The first was barely worth mentioning, but the two of them together need pointing out... poor.
    • 11' Long ball forward from Alexis Rolin after a period of possession football from the hosts, who are the better side so far.
    • 10' Wasted free-kick from Inter. Stramaccioni's job could be on the line in this match... what do you think? Tweet/follow me @symco_eurosport
    • 8' The Sicilians sit seventh in Serie A - they would overtake Inter, should they win here. Standings
    • 7' GOAL FOR CATANIA! 1-0! BERGESSIO! Juan tries to see the ball out for a goal-kick, and the nippy attacker keeps the ball in before coming back out a few yards and finishing into the far top corner past Samir Handanovic!
    • 6' Zdravko Kuzmanovic upset after he is penalised for a foul in midfield - he did catch home captain Mariano Izco. It is taken quickly, dinked for Bergessio in the box - he turns and shoots, but the effort is blocked.
    • 5' The home side seeing plenty of the ball at present.
    • 4' Cristian Chivu with an important header in his own box as Catania, in home colours of narrow pink and navy blue stripes, threaten again.
    • 2' Gonzalo Bergessio breaks down the left for the Sicilian club, but his dangerous cross beats everyone as it whizzes across the six-yard box.
    • 1' Early attack down the right sees Rocchi leave the ball for Alvarez, but Catania hold firm and clear.
    • 1' The first half underway with Inter in all white attacking the goal to our left.
    • 13:55 Inter manager Andrea Stramaccioni has dropped striker Antonio Cassano after a training ground row. Cassano dropped by Inter after training ground row
