  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Internazionale
    • AS Roma
    • 90'+6 One last foray for Inter. Too many passes on the edge of the box and eventually Muntari opts to pass backwards. With that, the ref brings the match to a close. It's ended Inter 0 Roma 0! Good result for Luis Enrique but the pressure mounts on Gasperini. Thanks for joining us!
    • 90'+4 SNEIJDER AGAIN!! Labont is equal to it, the ball bobbles free and he Dutchman goes down, yelling for a penalty. The ref ignores his pleas and we're in the last seconds.
    • 90'+3 Teasing ball by Nagatomo! In for SNEIJDER! Blocked at the near post by a Roma leg!
    • 90'+2 De Rossi gets stamped on by Sneijder. Accidentally, but that must have smarted, given where the Dutchman's studs ended up!
    • 90'+1 There'll be four minutes of stoppage-time as Muntari is roundly abused for another wasted ball.
    • 90' We're in the last minute as Ranocchia sees the ball out for a goal kick under pressure from Perrotta.
    • 89' Inter throw. Roma again clear their lines as time runs out.
    • 88' Zanetti goes down. Strong but fair challenge by Taddei. Scant comfort for the pained Argentine.
    • 86' Jonathan to Zarate, whips in a cross into theh box, Kjare gets something on it, but only diverts the ball as far as SNEIJDER!! Blocked by Kjaer with Lobont poised behind him!! Great chance for Inter late on!
    • 84' Sneijder is still on the floor. Looked fairly innocuous to me.
    • 83' Yellow card for Kjaer for a foul on Sneijder.
    • 82' Sneijder tries a speculative effort. There was no way through and the shot is easily blocked. Poor, and somewhat desperate, decision by the Dutchman.
    • 81' Poor cross by Zarate. This is a nervous finish for both teams, but Roma will be far happier with the point.
    • 80' Last 10 minutes. Can either side break the deadlock? As Muntari's first touch is wayward and is greeted by a chorus of boos.
    • 79' And now Forlan is off for Inter. Sulley Muntari is on. Crowd aren't happy with that decision!
    • 78' Marco Borriello is on for Borini.
    • 77' Zarate and Forlan link up. Forlan cuts back and curls a left foot shot!! Oooh! Past the upright! Great effort by the Uruguayan!!
    • 76' We're in the last 15 minutes as Marco Borriello prepares to come on for Roma.
    • 75' Zarate again with a solo run. Another step over allows him to get his shot away. Can't wrap his foot around it and the chance goes begging.
    • 73' Jonathan with a neat tackle. Finds Sneijder. Looks for Zarate. Blocked, The Dutchman gets another chance! But he's underneath it and the ball ends up in the San Siro crowd.
    • 71' Cambiasso again with a foul on Gago. Totti plays it in. Clean catch by Cesar.
    • 70' There are 20 minutes to go as Totti looks for support. Nothing on and he has to play thhe ball backwards.
    • 68' Forlan to SNEIJDER!! Stings Labont's hands and the Romanian keeper shovels that one away - albeit without too much conviction!
    • 67' Nagatomo for Inter. To Jonathan. Poor ball for Zanetti by the sub and that'll be shepherded out of play for a goal kick.
    • 66' Roma corner. Into Osvaldo, He's underneath it and can only head the ball up and Cesar will pluck that one out of the air.
    • 65' ZARATE!! Great individual play! Beats two Roma defenders, does step over and fires narrowly wide of Lobont's goal! He made that out of nothing!
    • 64' Jonathan tries to make an instant impact. No change out of De Rossi though.
    • 63' Totti's free-kick strikes Forlan and goes out for a corner. Poor delivery and Inter will clear their lines.
    • 62' Inter change before the kick can be taken. Obi is off and on comes Jonathan. Good change. We've barely heard of Obi today!
    • 61' Foul by Cambiasso on Totti. It'll be another Roma free-kick.
    • 60' Inter corner. It's a deep one. Kept in by Lucio but Sneijder fouls the sub Gago as a welcome to the match.
    • 59' It's Mauro Zarate for Milito for Inter while Roma's Pizarro makes way for Fernando Gago.
    • 58' The ball is safely with Labont as both sides line up subs.
    • 56' It's PJANIC!! Over the wall and over the bar! Totti is probably wishing he took it now!
    • 56' Totti is over it...
    • 55' Pizarro steps inside. Cambiasso brings him down and this'll be a Roma free-kick just outside of the box!
    • 54' Borini is sniffing around Cambiasso and hassling the defender in his own box. Perrotta eventually gets the cross in. Osvaldo has dropped too deep and Inter can clear.
    • 52' Osvaldo is down under Lucio's challenge. The Brazilian has been booked already and needs to be careful.
    • 51' Pjanic from distance! Awful effort! Still, it's been a bright start to the second half!
    • 50' Free-kick for Inter. Sneijder delivers to MILITO!! Oooh! Heads it wide of the near post from a matter of yards! Best chance of the game goes begging!!
    • 48' And now Nagatomo has to make a smart defensive header with Pizarro lurking. This has been a dodgy start by Inter.
    • 47' TADDEI!! In plenty of space on the edge of the box! Shoots !! Always rising and over Cesar's bar. Roma again coming close!
    • 46' Good move by Roma! Totti looks for OSVALDO!!! Onside and Cesar does well to rush out of his box and make the block!! Osvaldo just failed to lift the bal over the diving keeper! Almost a perfect start for Roma!
    • 46' And Inter get the second half underway.
    • 45'+3 TOTTI! Takes it and that's a poor effort!. Flies wide and the ref brings the half to a close. It's Inter 0 Roma 0 at the break!
    • 45'+3 Foul on Totti by Walter Samuel. Free-kick to Roma about 25 yards out and central!
    • 45'+2 Milito picks up a loose ball given away by Pjanic. Pushes it a little too far and brings down Nicolas Burdisso in his attempt to recover. Free-kick to Roma in their own box.
    • 45'+1 That's a little surprising! Just three minutes to add.
    • 45' We're in the last minute of normal time but there'll be plenty of time added on for the injury to Maarten Stekelenburg.
    • 44' Pizarro twists past Cambiasso, finds BORINI! Shot blocked! Corner Roma! In it comes and Inter get it away.
    • 43' Forlan hoping to get on the end of a pass by Cambiasso. Picks up pace in the wet and out for a Roma goal kick.
    • 43' Foul now on Milito by Kjaer. Doubt if that was Enrique's instruction!
    • 41' Pizarro unsurprisingly is up and about again. Nagatomo ahs it for Inter. Tadei is there to make the tackle. Long ball for Perrotta. Too long, Inter throw.
    • 40' Luis Enrique takes the opportunity to impart some touchline wisdom to Simon Kjaer.
    • 39' Roma again on the attack. It's another neat passing move. Pizarro thinks he was clipped by Esteban Cambiasso. Ref plays on but Pizarro stays down and play is eventually stopped. Think that was gamesmanship by the Roma man.
    • 38' Neat one-two by Roma. The return looks for De Rossi! Lucio gets there first to clear the danger.
    • 36' Ranocchia plays the ball all the way back to Julio Cesar. The keeper will bang it long. Milito now, Forlan, NAGATOMO!! In space and lets fly with a rasping shot from the edge of the box which flies over the bar! Great Inter move!
    • 35' Foul now by Nagatomo on Rodrigo Taddei. The full back went down easily but it's a Roma free-kick.
    • 34' Push by Osvaldo on Lucio in the Inter box. Cheap free-kick for Inter.
    • 32' Last 15 minutes of the half as Javier Zanetti accelerates beyond Pjanic and finds FORLAN!! Good chance but the Uruguayan can't connect properly!
    • 31' No way through for De Rossi. Nagatomo comes forward for Inter. There are plenty of white shirts back and Inter are forced to play the ball across the pitch. Cross comes in lookign for Milito and DeRossi looked like he lost the flight of the ball there! Lucky that Lobont was alert.
    • 29' Wesley Sneijder on defensive duty, gives that to De Rossi. Pizarro probes at the edge of the area. Totti to BORINI!! Oooh! Awful volley! Shanks that cross way wide!! What a chance!
    • 28' Pjanic this time on the right. His cross is cleareda nd it's a chance for Inter to break with Forlan and Milito, Good defending by De Rossi though. Read the situation well.
    • 27' Plenty of time for Roma just inside their own half. Inter content to sit off and let them have the ball. Totti now, looks to curl the ball into Osvaldo. That's a poor cross and sails out of play.
    • 26' We're over halfway through the first period. It remains Inter 0 Roma 0.
    • 25' De Rossi gets a blow in the face courtesy of Milito. Roma free-kick.
    • 24' Roma have had to weather a good spell of Inter pressure. Not surprising after losing their keeper so early to a nasty injury.
    • 22' MILITO!! Steps round the defender too easily and drives the shot into the near post!. Lobont is there to make a smart stop!
    • 21' Free-kick finds FORLAN!! Strikes it from some 30 yards!!. The sub keeper gets everything behind it in the wet conditions. Worth a tester though!
    • 20' Foul by Simone Perrotta on Sneijder just inside the Roma half.
    • 19' Borini with a superb cross zipping through the six yard box! Lucio slides in with a great clearance! That had own goal written all over it!
    • 18' And the Romanian keeper comes on as the Dutch stopper is applauded off the pitch.
    • 18' This is a worry. Stekelenburg's match is surely over and Bogdan Lobont is poised to come on for Roma.
    • 17' Yellow card for Lucio. That looked harsh though! The Inter man was entitled to go for the 50-50.
    • 16' LUCIO!! He's onside! Out comesMaarten Stekelenburg to block! And the keeper catches Lucios' boot in the face and he's out!
    • 15' In it comes, headed away.
    • 14' Sneijder takes it, and that hits a defender and rebounds out for a corner.
    • 13' Nagatomo now for Inter. Forlan is in the box. Sneijder goes down under David Pizarros' challenge. The Dutchman made a lot of it but has won the free-kick.
    • 11' Roma again come forward. The ball is threaded through to PABLO OSVALDO!! Makes space and looks for the bottom right corner! Good stop low down by Cesar!! First chance goes to Roma!
    • 10' Miralem Pjanic has the ball on the edge of the box. Looks for an opening. Inter stand firm and clear as Totti delivers a wayward pass.
    • 9' Forlan for Inter, Milito looks offside, Yuto Nagamoto now, tries to jink his way forward, blocked by a pair of Roma defenders.
    • 8' Roma again come forward with Nicolas Burdisso. The ex-Inter man is looking to get one over his former club. That's some neat possession by Roma. Too much in the end and Cesar will claim the gently rolling ball.
    • 7' Obi almost finds Milito in the box. The Inter man just fails to bring the ball down.
    • 6' Now it's Totti's turn to go down. The free-kick is swung in through driving rain and that's a good claim by Julio Cesar in the Inter goal.
    • 5' Roma with time on the ball. Try to thread it down the left with Francesco Totti. Daniele de Rossi looks to get on the end of a slightly short pass and Diego Milito clatters the Roma man.
    • 4' Now Joel Obi hits the deck. Scrappy start to the match.
    • 3' And Ranocchia is down here. Looks gingerly at his ankle, but he's up and play resumes.
    • 2' Early foul against Fabio Borini on Andrea Ranocchia. Inter free-kick at about halfway.
    • 1' Banged out into touch for an Inter throw and that goes back out immediately for one for Roma!
    • 1' And it's Roma who get what promises to be a great match underway!
    • 19:44 Milan in their traditional blue and black, Roma in all-white.
    • 19:42 The teams are out and the tension rises. Milan and Rome expect!
    • 19:33 And Inter again were on top when they dumped Roma out of the Coppa Italia, Inter winning the semi-final 2-1 on aggregate.
    • 19:32 Wesley Sneijder started the ball rolling with the opener, only for Roma to level through Fabio Simplico. Esteban Cambiasso restored the Nerazzurri's lead and Samuel Eto'o added a third before the break. Eto'o notched his second and Inter's fourth on 63 minutes and although Vucinic gave Roma hope, Sneijder sealed the points. A late Loria goal proved only a consolation for the Giallorossi.
    • 19:30 But in the corresponding fixture in February, Inter ran out 5-3 winners in a pulsating match.
    • 19:27 It was nip and tuck between these two sides last campaign. Roma edged last September 's encounter 1-0 thanks to Mirko Vucinic's goal.
    • 19:24 And our ref today is Paolo Silvio Mazzoleni.
    • 19:23 And the teams are in! INTER: 1 Julio Cesar; 6 Lucio, 25 Samuel, 23 Ranocchia; 55 Nagatomo, 4 Zanetti, 19 Cambiasso, 10 Sneijder, 20 Obi; 9 Forlan, 22 Milito.

    • 19:21 Expectations of Luis Enrique's first season in charge of the Giallorossi may arguably be less high, but a surprise early exit from the Europa league at the hands of Slovan Bratislava and a 2-1 defeat by Cagliari in their campaign opener has raised the stress levels in Rome.
    • 19:20 With the season barely underway, Inter boss Gian Piero Gasperini has come under fire following a 4-3 defeat at Palermo in the delayed Serie A opener, followed by a 1-0 midweek Champions League reverse at home to Turkish side Trabzonspor.
    • 19:19 Both managers have their problems coming into the match.
    • 19:18 Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of this evening's Serie A clash between Internazionale and Roma from the San Siro.
