    Time:90'
    • Chievo
    • Internazionale
    • 90+3' NO THEY CAN'T! IT'S FULL TIME IN VERONA! A late Eto'o goal does nothing to disguise a second-rate performance from the Serie A champions, who just couldn't match Chievo's shear heart today. Back to the drawing board for Rafa Benitez, who is under increasing pressure in the Inter hot-seat.
    • 90+2' GOAL! OR IS IT! He just had to score. Eto'o holds off a couple of challenges in the Chievo box, before dummying a shot, making some space, and hammering a shot low past Sorrentino. No chance for the Chievo keeper. Surely they can't get another... can they?!
    • 90+1' We'll have three minutes of injury-time - and what a win this is going to be for Chievo!
    • 90' Chievo break again, and Inter are all over the shop! Castellazzi comes storming off his line to smother a loose ball, but spills it left and watches helplessly as Moscardelli lifts his shot over the bar
    • 89' Chievo break with the duracell-powered Fernandes on the left wing. He sends a decent ball square, but the eventual shot is hammered over the bar
    • 88' A cross is headed nicely across goal to Pendev, who connects with a left-foot volley! No pace on it though, and too close to Sorrentino, who has been colossal today
    • 87' Inter really needed that to go in. The goals just aren't coming today
    • 86' The corner is swung in to CORDOBA! Headed into the ground and over the bar!
    • 85' Final change for Chievo: Constant off, Bogliacino on
    • 84' Stankovic squeezes off a shot from range, which is deflected behind for a corner
    • 83' If Inter lose, they'll end the weekend nine points behind bitter rivals AC Milan - who currently top the Serie A table
    • 82' Brilliant football from the hosts. Rigoni latched onto a long ball over the top, before firing a fast, low ball across the face of goal. Thereau completely missed the ball, but the substitute Moscardelli was on hand to tap in from close range.
    • 81' GOAL! 2-0 CHIEVO! Moscardelli taps in from close range to leave Inter with a mountain to climb and just 10 minutes left to play!
    • 80' Cordoba plays the ball out of defence, but the yellow shirts are absolutely all over it! Brilliant harrying from Stefano Pioli's troops, and Chievo can break
    • 78' Chievo are definitely enjoying more of the ball this half, Inter seem to be running out of ideas
    • 77' Play switches left, and Constant fires off a low shot from the edge of the area but a deflection takes the pace off the ball and Castellazzi holds it
    • 76' Eto'o is dispossessed on the left wing, and Fernandes gallops off along the wing. He's got some legs, this lad!
    • 75' Pandev receives an inch-perfect cross from the left wing but can't control the ball well enough with his chest on his first touch and Chievo hack the ball clear towards the other end
    • 73' Stankovic hacks down Rigoni in midifeld and receives a rightful yellow card in return as Chievo manage to make absolutely nothing out of their resulting free kick
    • 72' Constant pounces on a loose ball on the edge of the area after a corner from Chievo, and although he gets plenty of power behind his long-range shot he's skews the shot badly and spins the ball well wide of the left post in the end
    • 70' Fernandes dispossesses Stankovic and finds Constant in midfield as Chievo continue to push for a second goal but Inter steal the ball and build a counter-attack of their own. Cambiasso's toe-poke pass upfield though is far to heavy and comfortable out-runs Pandev Sorrentino shepherd's the ball out of play
    • 68' Some changes to get you up to date with: Chievo's Marcolini has gone off for Roberto Guana, and goalscorer Pellissier is off for Moscardelli.
    • 67' Inter break back up the other end, and Pandev has the ball in the box. He lays off to ETO'O! BRILLIANT SAVE SORRENTINO! The Chievo keeper makes himself big and parries the ball clear for a corner. End to end stuff, this!
    • 66' Another let-off for Inter - Fernandes dragged the ball wide of the far post with the goal at his mercy
    • 65' Chievo reach the byline on the left wing, and the ball drops to CONSTANT! The volley parried by Castellazzi, and falls to FERNANDES! WIDE!
    • 64' Sneijder plays a throughball low to Stankovic on the right, who goes for a CHIP! CLAWED AWAY BY SORRENTINO! Cracking save, and a brilliant effort from the Serbian
    • 63' Pandev goes down inside his own half now. Chievo's 14th foul of the match
    • 62' Théréau and Constant exchange passes on the left, before the former goes down under pressure of the ball, and the move breaks down
    • 61' Stankovic makes a yard of space cutting in from the left, and fires off a 20-yard shot at Sorrentino! It's straight down the goalkeeper's throat, though, and easily held.
    • 59' Sneijder is back in the action, and goes into another challenge woefully late on the edge of the Chievo box. He's going to have to be careful, the Dutchman, as the referee won't let him get away with many more
    • 58' Santon loses out under pressure in the middle, before Sneijder and Stankovic combine to barge Fernandes off the ball and concede a Chievo free kick
    • 57' Inter with the ball deep now, looking to shift play up the left wing
    • 56' Sneijder tries his luck from range, but his looping, dipping left foot curler lands two yards wide of a scrambling Sorrentino's right post. Decent effort
    • 55' Inter substitution: Cambiasso off, Obiora on
    • 55' Biabiany heaves into another late challenge on the sideline, and it's hard to believe that the 22-year-old Frenchman hasn't gone into the referee's book yet!
    • 54' It's swung in to the far post, where Mantovani knocks it down to RIGONI! OVER THE BAR! The Italian hooks the ball over the bar with his right foot from a yard out, and that's a massive let-off for Inter!
    • 53' And Chievo are still committing numbers to the counter attack, earning a corner on the right
    • 52' It's as you were in the second half then, with Inter enjoying the bulk of possession with some metronomic passing across the middle of the pitch, but struggling to break down a resilient Chievo defence
    • 50' Pandev advances into the box, before turning back under pressure
    • 49' Nimble footwork from Santon on the right wing, cutting inside to find Pandev
    • 48' Stankovic fires his header over the bar from Sneijder's corner, and Chievo will have their first bit of time on the ball in this half
    • 47' That's a decent start, as Davide Santon fires in a shot from an acute angle which Sorrentino tips over his bar
    • 46' We're back underway! Time to see how much fighting spirit Rafa Benitez has instilled in his men at half time
    • 45+4' Half-time in Verona! Join us momentarily for part II of this fiery encounter
    • 45+3' Chievo counter, and Pellissier latches onto a long ball over the defence! He advances to the edge of the area under pressure, and squeezes off a shot! Just wide of the right stick!
    • 45+2' Sneijder steps up... and drills it wide of the left upright
    • 45+1' Rigoni clatters into Pendev from behind, and earns Chievo's third yellow card of the match. Inter free kick, 22 yards out
    • 45' We'll have three minutes of injury time at the Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi. Let's hope they go quickly
    • 44' Fernandes goes down under pressure from Zanetti just inside the Chievo half, and wins a free kick
    • 42' It's swung into the middle, but headed well clear. Inter break at pace, but the move breaks down on the left wing and Constant hares away with the ball for Chievo
    • 41' No. Lucio takes Pellissier down from behind on the edge of Inter's area, and the home side have a free kick
    • 40' Really ugly, this. Biabiany limps off, and perhaps we can get back to playing football now can we gents?
    • 39' That could be looked at retrospectively, the replays clearly show Eto'o driving his forehead into Cesar's chest. Biabiany then flies into a very late challenge on the halfway line, and he stays down injured
    • 38' Eto'o runs towards the penalty box, and clashes with Cesar! The Chievo man stays down, and Eto'o appeared to headbutt him in the chest then! Plenty of controversy here, but the officials seem to have missed it, as Eto'o doesn't even get a ticking off.
    • 37' Eto'o takes a knock in the middle of the park, and the visitors have a free kick. Scrappy, that
    • 36' Cambiasso sweeps in a long ball which is headed clear for an Inter throw, now
    • 35' Frey with throw on the right, deep in his own half
    • 33' Hang on, the referee seems to have booked Fernandes after that foul! Mistake identity surely, or else he's booking the midfielder for a previous foul on Biabiany in the build-up
    • 32' Inter clear, and Sneijder draws a foul from Rigoni on the left wing. Free kick Inter
    • 31' Pellissier is sent through on the right wing, but sees his shot deflected wide for a corner. Chievo amping up the pressure at the moment
    • 30' Wonderful football from Chievo, who have only had 33% possession so far but certainly made it count!
    • 29 GOAL! 1-0 CHIEVO! The ball is layed off to Frey on the right wing, and the fullback swings in a lovely cross for Pellissier to forcefully head past Castellazzi!
    • 28' Chievo on the ball now, looking to break
    • 27' Pandev plays a clever one-two into the left portion of the box with Cambiasso, but fires his left-foot shot high over the bar. Lovely passing, poor finish
    • 26' It's followed by another long ball into the box, though, and Castellazzi gathers easily
    • 25' Mantovani with a throw now, on the left
    • 24' They switch to the left, and launch a hopeful ball into box, which is easily dealt with by Lucio
    • 23' Frey with a throw deep in Chievo's half
    • 22' There's plenty of pushing and shoving in the box, but the outswinging corner fails to find a blue and black shirt
    • 21' The Dutchman whipped a right-foot curler towards the top left corner, and Sorrentino punches well clear for a corner
    • 20' It's going to be Sneijder... Good save Sorrentino!
    • 19' Eto'o takes a tumble on the edge of the area to the left, and Inter have a free kick in a dangerous position
    • 18' Cambiasso enjoys a good twenty seconds unchallenged in the Chievo third, and the home side are sitting so deep. They're not even harrying the Inter midfield in the middle third at the moment, presumably waiting to hit the defending Italian champions on the break
    • 17' Zanetti skips away from a challenge on the left wing, but takes one touch too many on his way round Andreolli and the ball runs out of play for a goal kick
    • 16' They don't get far though. You'll be amazed to hear this, but this is a very organized display from the visitors so far
    • 15' Eto'o with the ball on the right now (he's covering plenty of ground!), and squares to Sneijder, who clips the ball with his heel towards Panddev. The Macedonian is squeezed off it, and Chievo break
    • 14' Inter come within a couple of inches of taking the lead! Chievo just about clear the rebound, and Pandev is left with his head in his hands
    • 13' Eto'o dinks a lovely ball through to Pandev, who rounds the onrushing Sorrentino! PANDEV! OFF THE POST!
    • 12' The Inter captain goes down under heavy pressure, and wins a free kick wide on the left wing
    • 11' Zanetti switches from left to right, Chievo are chasing shadows at the moment
    • 9' Lucio with the ball on the edge of Inter's box
    • 8' Chievo also came into this match without a win in four, and their chances of springing a surprise against Inter today are rather bleak - they haven't scored in over 370 minutes of football!
    • 7' Zanetti, Sneijder, and Pandev exchange passes on the half-way line, before Pandev is swept off his feet. Free kick Inter
    • 6' Inter still enjoying the lions' share of possession, but Chievo are looking lively too. Fascinating start to this vital match for the treble-winners, who currently sit in sixth place in the Serie A table
    • 5' Cyril Thereau thunders a long range effort towards goal, but Castellazzi gets some strong gloves behind it
    • 3' Inter come into today's match on a bleak run of forms - four matches without a win in all competitions.
    • 2' Inter enjoying some early possession, in the middle of the park
    • 1' Straight into the action at the Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi, with Chievo in their vibrant yellow, and the Nerazzurri in traditional blue and black
    • 13:55 Good afternoon and welcome to our live text commentary of Chievo v Inter Milan!
