    • 58' Seedorf goes down clutching his leg, and it looks as though the midfielder could be struggling.

    • 37' Well, that is strange: Benitez changes his mind with Cambiasso stripped off and about to race on to the field, and Coutinho comes on instead!
    • 36' Cambiasso comes on to replace Obi in midfield, and that is an enforced early change for Benitez.
    • 35' Obi pulls up with what looks to be a hamstring injury, and that may well be the end of his match.
    • 34' Inter enjoy a good spell of possession in the Milan half, but cannot carve out an opening.
    • 33' Milito buys a free kick for his side on halfway, but Sneijder takes it quickly and the move peters out.

    • 31' Seedorf attempts a rather ambitious through ball into the path of Ibrahimovic, but Castellazzi is swiftly out to clear.
