    Time:90'
    • Internazionale
    • Udinese
    • 90+6 Muntari shoots, straight at Handanovic, and that is the whistle! 2-1, Inter hold on.
    • 90+6 Asamoah comes forward but his through ball is played away by Samuel. Now Pandev with a lovely turn and through ball to Eto'o but Domizzi gets there first.
    • 90+5 Free-kick Udinese as we enter the final seconds of added time... Di Natale's delivery is straight down Cesar's throat.
    • 90+4 High ball into the Inter box which Cesar meets with a punch but Corradi meets him in the chest and it's a foul.
    • 90+2 Domizzi clearly shoves Pandev, Inter free-kick on halfway.
    • 90+1 Is that five minutes added time? Six! Why on earth are there six?
    • 90' A bit of panic on the edge of the Udinese box but Muntari's shot is blocked. Di Natale races away and is put in by Sanchez but the flag is up. Close.
    • 89' Cuadrado is booked for sliding in on Eto'o.
    • 88' Corradi tries to hold it up on the edge of the box but Samuel eases him aside.
    • 87' Inter playing it about confidently on the edge of the box. No chance on goal though.
    • 85' Di Natale meets a superb cross from Corradi on the right but Samuel does really well to put him off and the finish spins wide!
    • 83' ETO'O HITS THE POST! Cracking shot from the edge of the D, the keeper was beaten and it rattled the inside of the woodwork but landed just too wide for Pandev to finish. Corner won by the Macedonian.
    • 82' Almost a lovely move started by Muntari as he exchanged passes with Sneijder but the flick on to Eto'o was just ahead of him.
    • 81' INTER SUB: Milito off for Muntari.
    • 79' Inter break and Milito is on the edge of the box, he shuffles it on to his left and drills a low shot across the keeper but wide of the far post!
    • 78' Di Natale is in on the right and he clips a cross in that is deflected and Corradi slides in but Cesar bravely leaps on to it!
    • 77' The corner is swung in and Angello attacks it, off the side of his head and just beyond Asamoah!
    • 76' Good stuff from Udinese as Di Natale works his way in to win a corner on the right.
    • 74' All a bit scappy now, the first such period of this game.
    • 72' Lucio comes to and trots off, Udinese not contesting the drop ball.
    • 71' Ow. Di Natale's free-kick hits Lucio square in the eye. Inter clear but he's out cold.
    • 70' Free-kick to Udinese some way out which Di Natale is over...
    • 68' Di Natale is convinced he was fouled by Cordoba in the box and talks himself into the book. Cordoba impeded him right on the edge of the box, but only because he slipped on what looks like a plastic bag sitting on the turf. Weird.
    • 67' Brilliant save to bat out Eto'o's penalty but the striker pokes the rebound into the bottom right, first-time with his left! 2-1.
    • 66' Penalty Inter! Sneijder on the left put in a cross that Angella inexplicably stuck his arm out to block.
    • 65' Great hold-up play from Corradi to play Di Natale in but the whistle has gone, I think for offside.
    • 64' Sanchez is furious after being left with a graze right down his knee from Pandev.
    • 63' UDINESE SUB: Corradi on for Floro Flores.
    • 62' INTER SUB: Pandev on for Biabiany.
    • 61' Eto'o brings it forward from his own half, inside to Milito who turns brilliantly to free Sneijder on the right, he's in but inexplicably cuts inside the defender and draws the tackle. He thinks Domizzi handled but nothing given. Looked suspiciously like a handball.
    • 59' Inler lofts a superb long ball over to Di Natale but he is offside.
    • 58' Pasquale off for Udinese. I think Cuadrado has come on, will confirm... No, Angella.
    • 57' MARIGA STRAIGHT AT HANDANOVIC! What a super run by Sneijder to set him up, taking three defenders out with a mazy dribble and low pass that they were queuing up to finish! Should have scored...
    • 55' FLORO FLORES JUST WIDE! Brilliant play from Sanchez again as he wriggles past three challenges and slips Flores in, but his finish from the edge of the box flies past a standstill Cesar and into the crowd!
    • 54' Chivu is struggling with something and Cordoba is warming up to come on. Floro Flores needs some treatment too...
    • 53' Terrible decision by the referee to book Eto'o for diving in the box when Zapata pulled his hand and pushed his back as the Cameroon striker raced past him into the box. A lucky get off for the Colombian.
    • 52' Sanchez with some lovely wingplay on the right and he puts in a super low cross but just behind Floro Flores and Inter clear!
    • 51' Sneijder has a pop from quite far out but it's well over. Trying too hard perhaps.
    • 50' Inter still knocking it about but Sneijder - who is their key man really - is struggling to get into the game. Udinese clear.
    • 49' Inter overcome that scare with a good spell of possession.
    • 48' Sanchez shows lovely skill on the left but cleared. A long ball from Sanchez sends Di Natale clean through but Cesar rushes out of his box to just beat him to it! Sanchez tries the lob but well off target.
    • 47' Early sighter for Udinese as Sanchez beats Chivu to the ball and has a pop but straight at Cesar.
    • 46' The second half resumes.
    • - It seems there have been no changes at half-time as they wait for a late Julio Cesar to take the pitch.
    • - STATS: Inter had almost 62% possession in the first half but Udinese had almost as many shots on goal, six to the hosts' seven.
    • 45+1 The whistle goes for half-time, 1-1 in Milan.
    • 45' It opens up for Sanchez on the edge of the box but he fires straight at Cesar! Should have done better.
    • 44' A long ball sends Sanchez in and he goes down, but he fouled Chivu says the ref. Looked suspicious.
    • 43' Pasquale gets it on to his left but shoots wildly wide.
    • 42' The ball spins to Milito in the box, good ball from Sneijder, but the Argentina striker can only head weakly at Handanovic. That was a chance.
    • 42' Udinese launch it forward from the goal kick and Di Natale smashes one well over.
    • 41' Poor from Sneijder, aimless and wide.
    • 40' Biabiany goes down rather late after minimal contact if any, Inter have a free-kick on the left wing which Sneijder, obviously, will take.
    • 39' Samuel pushes Flores in the back. It is fair to say this first half has been scrappy.
    • 38' Di Natala unleashes a low drive after cutting in from the left but it bobbles into the arms of Cesar.
    • 36' Flores gets it on the left and cuts the ball back to Asamoah, but his cross takes a deflection off Zanetti and Samuel clears.
    • 35' Sneijder lives through that and will take the free-kick from the left but Flores heads high and away. Still with Inter though. Mariga shoots but blocked and Udinese counter.
    • 34' The first Udinese booking of the afternoon as Pinzi rattles into the back of Sneijder . Nasty.
    • 33' SAMUEL HEADS WIDE! Free header from Sneijder's excellent corner! Should have been 2-1!
    • 32' Super save Handanovic! A low fizzing dive from Milito aimed for the bottom right but the Slovenian somehow tipped it behind.
    • 31' 1-1! Floro Flores! Super header into the bottom right after a short corner, great cross from Di Natale after a one-two with Sanchez. Cambiasso let him go, Samuel beaten to the header. The Argentine duo should have known better.
    • 30' Pinzi finds Sanchez who wins a corner on the right.
    • 29' Eto'o cannot believe he has been denied a free-kick on the edge of the box after Zapata catches him but play-on says the ref!
    • 28' Eto'o zips down the left and hangs in a dangerous cross for Biabiany at the back stick but Pasquale arches to knock it away for a throw.
    • 26' Mariga spots a run from Eto'o but the through ball is intercepted by Zapata.
    • 25' Asamoah wide to Pasquale, Di Natale on the ball now but hoofed away for a throw by Zanetti.
    • 24' Pinzi gets forward for the visitors but Chivu puts it out for a throw. Taken short as Udinese focus on working possession.
    • 23' Chivu, still wearing his rugby prop-style helmet, bounds forward on the left, good ball across but Udinese clear.
    • 22' Inter knocking the ball about nicely but a touch deep.
    • 21' Taken short, disappointingly, as Chivu slides in to win a free-kick off the late Pinzi.
    • 20' Flores wins a free-kick after Lucio pulls and pushes him to the ground.
    • 18' Sanchez smashes in a super volley from the right after it bounces over his shoulder but just wide!
    • 17' Lovely scooped pass by Sanchez but Flores can't get the header on target.
    • 16' Super one-touch passing from Inter almost puts Sneijder in but Zapata makes the block and Udinese live.
    • 15' After a decent spell for Udinese, Inter are controlling the ball. I'm liking the look of Mariga and Biabiany.
    • 13' Floro Flores is warned for a trip on Lucio, who rolls around on the floor like a tumbleweed.
    • 12' Eto'o has a pop from range but well wide.
    • 11' Floro Flores combines with Di Natale but the former cannot control the latter's return ball.
    • 10' SHOCKING MISS! Asamoah takes the free kick quickly to Floro Flores, Sanchez is put in on the right and he cuts it back for a simple finish but Di Natale misses the ball and Inter hack clear.
    • 9' Not a great delivery from the Dutchman but he gets another chance. Again a poor cross and Udinese clear, Zanetti fouls Floro Flores and is harshly booked.
    • 8' Biabiany wins a corner on the right, off Pinzi. Sneijder to take...
    • 7' GOAL INTER! Lucio! The defender pops up on the right-hand side of the six-yard box after a shaky flap by Handanovic - diving into a crowd of players - only serves the chance up on a plate for the Brazilian, who lashes it across the keeper into the left side of goal.
    • 6' Mariga again on the ball as he cuts inside to drive a low shot wide, deflected by Domizzi. Corner.
    • 5' Mariga fouls Asamoah to hand Udinese a free-kick but it's taken short, the sting is taken out of the attack and Chivu wins a throw on the left.
    • 4' Samuel is forced to clear to touch after Di Natale almost frees Floro Flores.
    • 3' Mariga gets on the ball and almost slides Eto'o through but Zapata clears.
    • 2' Inter bossing the opening stages as Udinese sit on the back foot.
    • 1' The first half gets underway!
