    • 90+6' Zauri is booked.
    • 90+5' Cassano opts for the corner but is soon dispossessed.
    • 90+4' Cassano is brought down on the right flank by Obi. Will Sampdoria cross into the box or play the ball down to the corner?
    • 90+3' Sampdoria have lost just once this season, against Napoli.
    • 90+2' Pazzini miscues his shot to waste a Sampdoria opportunity.
    • 90+1' Inter have had almost twice as much possession as Sampdoria in this second half!
    • 89' There will be five minutes of added time!
    • 88' INTER SUB: The excellent Coutinho is replaced by Joel Chukwuma Obi.
    • 87' Sneijder delivers and Maicon's header is just over!
    • 86' Eto'o is barged down just outside the right edge of the box. Can Inter grab a winner with just minutes remaining?
    • 85' Inter rise leapfrog AC Milan into second while Sampdoria will rise two places to eighth.
    • 84' Lazio will hold a four point lead at the top of Serie A if things stay the same.
    • 83' Inter look intent on grabbing the winner - and I wouldn't put it past them at this stage... Sampdoria are on the rack.
    • 82' How's that for a baptism of fire for Costa - beaten within two minutes of coming on!
    • 81' GOAL! Inter are level! Coutinho drives into the box and send in a cross to the near post which Eto'o turns home!
    • 79' SAMPDORIA: And that's the last we'll see of Curci. Júnior Costa comes on to make his Sampdoria debut.
    • 78' Curci looks in real trouble - he's tweaked a muscle touching that cross clear.
    • 77' Maicon chips in a cross and Eto'o rises to head home but Curci gets their first to touch the ball to safety. That was a crucial intervention.
    • 76' Maicon swings in a corner but Volta rises to head clear.
    • 75' If Sampdoria win tonight, they will be the first side to beat Inter at the San Siro in more than two-and-a-half years.
    • 74' Coutinho dribbles into the box once again but his shot is blocked.
    • 72' SAMPDORIA SUB: Goalscorer Guberti makes way for Guido Marilungo.
    • 71' Brazilian Coutinho, at just 18 year's old, is a superb prospect.
    • 70' Coutinho waltzes into the box before laying off to Pandev. The ball falls back at Coutinho's feet but his shot is straight at Curci!
    • 68' Koman looks to play in Pazzini and nearly succeeds until a blue and black shirt nips in to intercept.
    • 67' SAMPDORIA SUB: Andrea Poli comes on for Tissone.
    • 66' How will Inter respond now they have to chase the game?
    • 65' Chivu will be very disappointed for his contribution in Sampdoria's goal. And Cesar should have done better in preventing Guberti's fierce volley hitting the back of the net.
    • 64' INTER SUB: Biabiany is replaced by Goran Pandev.
    • 63' GOAL! Sampdoria lead! Cassano steals the ball off Chivu on the right flank and crosses to Guberti to volley home!
    • 60' It looks like Sampdoria keeper Curci has picked up a knock.
    • 59' Coutinho fires a cross across the face of goal which eventually finds Maicon - and his shot is cleared off the line by Zauri! That's the closest we've come to a goal!
    • 58' It's played short to Chivu but his speculative 25-yard effort goes tamely over the bar.
    • 57' Zanetti is fouled just outside the top right of the Sampdoria box... this could be dangerous.

    • 49' Guberti's low cross failed to find a team-mate and goes out for a goal-kick.
    • 48' Sampdoria are dominating the early stages of the second half and are camped in Inter's final third.
    • 47' What will be second half bring us? More Inter domination in possession? Either way, don't discount Sampdoria.
    • 46' Sampdoria get the second half underway.
    • HT There's the half-time whistle - it's Internazionale 0-0 Sampdoria.
    • 45+1' There will be just one minute of added time.
    • 45' Maicon is brought down by Pazzini but, despite Maicon's best efforts, the Sampdoria man avoids a yellow card.
    • 44' Volta receives the first booking of the match for a tackle from behind on Sneijder.
    • 42' Koman is found in acres of space on the right and drives into the box before looking for Cassano - but Zanetti slides in with a superbly timed challenge to avert the danger.
    • 41' Sneijder whips in a superb low-flighted corner but the referee spots an infringement and gifts Sampdoria a free-kick.
    • 40' Inter break on the counter-attack but Zauri clears for a throw. The visitors defending looks like he's struggling though and we could see a substitution.
    • 39' Sampdoria corner. Cassano plays it short before receiving the ball back but his deep cross is cleared.
    • 38' Zauri makes a late intervention and picks up a knock on the process. The physio comes on but it looks like the right-back will be able to continue.
    • 36' Sneijder hasn't scored in Serie A since January 9!
    • 35' Sneijder has a pop from 25 yards but it's straight at Curci.
    • 34' For the latest Serie A photos, click here.
    • 33' Sneijder lays off to Coutinho and the left-sided attacker dances into the box before trying to lift the ball over Curci, but the Sampdoria goalkeeper is wise to it.
    • 32' Sampdoria almost open the scoring! Cassano does brilliantly to get on the end of a deep cross and head it across goal before Pazzini pokes the ball goalwards, only for Cesar to save on the line!

    • 29' Inter next face Genoa away while Sampdoria travel to Cesena.
    • 26' That's not to say Sampdoria are without threat. They look dangerous on the break.
