  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Bari
    • Internazionale
    • 90+5 The final whistle goes, Inter win 3-0 but not as convincing as it sounds.
    • 90+5 Sneijder makes it three! He's back from injury and finishes Kharja's sweet chest down, low into the right corner. Zanetti's ball originally. Well. A flattering scoreline.
    • 90+3 IT'S TWO! Barely deserved but they'll take it. On the break Pazzini latches on to Motta's through ball, cutting inside Rossi and drilling a low finish through Gillet. Keeping error. Almiron dithered on halfway to set it up too.
    • 90+2 BARI SUB: Rivas on for Glik.
    • 90+1 Inter are sitting very deep now as another change is about to be made...
    • 90' FIVE minutes added time being played.
    • 89' Huseklepp with a great turn of pace to beat Maicon on the left but alas his second touch is a bit heavy and all he can do is drill it straight at Cesar from a tight angle.
    • 88' INTER SUB: Cambiasso comes on for Eto'o.
    • 87' Glik is operating as a forward now as he lays it off for Parisi, who hammers one well wide.
    • 87' Inter hanging on now as Materazzi foils Huseklepp on the Bari right. Throw in to the hosts.
    • 86' The move fizzles out as Gazzi is caught offside.
    • 85' Gazzi knocks it off Maicon and Bari have a throw near the corner flag.
    • 84' Masiello puts on in the box and the ball bounces FOR GAZZI WHO TURNS ON TO THE BALL but he gets the contact wrong and the keeper saves!
    • 82' Free-kick to Inter, Masiello tugging the shirt of Pazzini.
    • 81' A great ball by Donati almost sends Huseklepp in but he is foiled by a touch from Ranocchia!
    • 80' All a bit weak from both sides now, looking a touch tired from their weekend exploits.
    • 78' Zanetti, who is also really old but far less horrid than Matrix, surges into the Bari box but trickles a low shot at Gillet.
    • 77' Unsurprisingly Materazzi lives. Serie A will be less amusing when he retires.
    • 76' Matrix is still arguing about that, claiming HE was fouled. So old, so cynical.
    • 75' Yellow card to Materazzi for a late tackle on Almiron.
    • 74' After the corner is cleared Rossi, with a big black eye now, almost gets on to a ball lofted back in but good keeping from Cesar.
    • 73' Good save Cesar! A sweet volley from Gazzi after Parisi lofted it in! Corner. Excellent technique from the left boot of Gazzi.
    • 71' Great goal looking at the replay. Bari still fuming that Inter aren't down to 10.
    • 70' GOAL INTER! Kharja with a moment of brilliance in his first start as an Inter player! A sweet low finish from a tight angle across Gillet and in the bottom right. A superb one-two with Eto'o.
    • 69' Good low ball by Chivu (spit!) but easy for Gillet. Huseklepp on for Rudolf.
    • 68' Okaka catches Chivu as he chases the ball. Bari are to bring a sub on, Huseklepp the Norwegian who almost joined Celtic.
    • 67' Blasted well over by Sneijder, who is a bit rusty maybe. Chivu on the left now has a pop but blocked. Would be horrendous if he scored a winner.
    • 66' Almiron gives it away as Bari are placed under some pressure.
    • 65' Bari are back to dictating the tempo of the game again, but they should be a man up!
    • 64' Pazzini falls on his hind. Like Milito he is not having the best time.
    • 62' INTER SUB: Milito, who has been AWOL, is off for Snejder.
    • 61' Well. Somehow the officials missed that and Bari will be furious - Chivu will get at least a four-match ban for that but it's no use to Bari at the bottom!
    • 60' Well that is horrible from Chivu. After the ball is cleared Chivu just punches Rossi square in the jaw, Rossi had his back to him too. A coward's assault. Did the linesman see it? Chivu has run to the other end of the pitch and it seems he has got away with it.
    • 59' Rossi is going schiz, something happened off the ball with Chivu as Cesar hauls his team-mate away and Matrix is involved...
    • 58' The free-kick is initially cleared but it's all kicking off now for some reason...
    • 57' Bari give away a free-kick and close around the ref, Eto'o brought down by Almiron's wild tackle.
    • 56' The free-kick is cleared and here comes Okaka racing away but Inter close ranks. Naive from the Roma loanee.
    • 55' Maicon wins a free-kick on the right. He's been the most positive for Inter today.
    • 54' Parisi has a pop from some way out, having got forward again, but it's straight at Cesar. Nice swerve on it though.
    • 53' Masiello was caught late by Kharja and appears to have taken a whack on the ankle. The medics are on with the magic spray.
    • 52' Maicon gets forward and tries to find Milito but the pass is poor. Masiello is down...
    • 51' Bari and the fans roared for a penalty but the ref decided contact was accidental: I am inclined to agree.
    • 50' The ball bounces up against the arm of Maicon but play on!
    • 49' Ranocchia is not having the best of times, falling over as he tries to intercept but not punished, Cesar able to claim.
    • 48' Maicon's corner is cleared and Almiron surges forward and is taken down by Motta who is rightly booked.
    • 47' Eto'o on the edge of the box does really well to find Milito, who tees him up but the Cameroonian's shot is blocked by Rossi! Corner.
    • 46' Inter get the second half underway. Sneijder looks on. How long before he returns?
    • - No changes at half-time.
    • 45' Chivu with a wayward cross from the left and the referee mercifully blows up on the stroke of 45 minutes, no doubt sickened as much as spectators by Inter's malaise.
    • 44' Free-kick 25 yards out then, parallel with the left-hand side of the box... Oh crikey that is dreadful from Maicon, about two-foot high and into the midriff of any number of wall members.
    • 43' Glick gets a nice birthday present - a birthday card even, yellow in colour, for a late one on Pazzini.
    • 42' Masiello a bit rough on Kharja, getting the ball but showing studs. Just a stop-and-chat from the ref, no card.
    • 41' Rudolf on the left cuts inside Ranocchia but Matrix clears. Still with Bari and Rudolf again with a ball that is deflected off Ranocchia and almost loops in but Cesar gathers.
    • 40' Honest appraisal so far? This is a dirge. Bari are being made to look good by a rather unadventurous, uninspired Inter.
    • 39' Eto'o swings the corner into the six-yard box but Bari get it clear. Maicon back in but headed away and Motta smacks a poor effort about seven yards wide.
    • 39' Eto'o on the left plays a low ball in for Milito but Rossi sweeps his leg across. Corner.
    • 38' Okaka on the left finds Rudolf but a poor touch from him kills the momentum of the move. He keeps the ball though as Bari spread it to the right... Keep-ball from the hosts now.
    • 37' Parisi puts the ball in the Inter box and Bentivoglio reaches it but, stretching, he is unable to divert it on target.
    • 36' Zanetti uses all his experience to win a free-kick off Okaka.
    • 35' This is better from Inter but Eto'o is forced to sit very deep, not sure how one exploits his finishing ability from midfield like that.
    • 34' Inter get hold of the ball for now but fail to make inroads into Bari. All very cagey so far.
    • 33' Maicon hurls himself to the turf on the right but no way Jose says the ref.
    • 32' A poor kick from Gillet is met by a fairly outrageous volleyed clearance from Masiello on the right that almost instigates a counter attack.
    • 31' You could call this a lull in the game as Bari keep the ball without getting into the Inter half.
    • 30' Another row, between Parisi and Maicon this time, over something utterly unimportant.
    • 29' Inter sitting very deep as Bari try to work an opening...
    • 28' Flashy clearance from Almiron, flicking it away on the stretch.
    • 27' Bari now keeping it simple and short as they try to return to their possession game...
    • 26' Well Ranocchia met the corner with a powerful header which is claimed by Gillet, excellent positioning otherwise that was in!
    • 25' Inter's turn to put some pressure on as Maicon is threaded in by Pazzini but Glik with a superb sliding challenge to intercept his cross aimed for Milito unmarked!
    • 24' There is a delightful irony in watching Matrix, the master of the dark arts, berate Bentivoglio for his simulation. Pah!
    • 23' A dive in the box by Bentivoglio after he goes down rather theatrically following a failed one-two with Okaka. Ranocchia slid in but the Bari man stuck his own boot out to take the ball.
    • 22' Good play by Inter as Maicon exchanges passes with Zanetti before cutting inside and flicking it well wide with the outside of his boot.
    • 21' A long-range effort from Almiron is watched by Cesar as it sails over the bar.
    • 20' Eto'o leads a rare Inter charge, Maicon on the right now cuts inside and unleashes a low shot but Gillet holds on.
    • 19' Motta with a wild, slices clearance but luckily Cesar is off his line quickly to get there ahead of Okaka.
    • 18' Bari really piling the pressure on Inter as they play it around confidently...
    • 17' Milito, a shadow of last season's player, gives the ball away to groans from the away fans.
    • 16' The helmeted Chivu bombs down the left, beating the first man but failing to get around Masiello.
    • 15' Almost an awkward moment for Glik as the ball bounces over his head but Gillet claims before Pazzini can react.
    • 14' Okaka flicks it wide to Masiello, who slips in a nice low cross for Bentivoglio to meet but he bounces the finish wide with Cesar covering well enough.
    • 12' Bari really don't look like table-proppers as they hem Inter back. A floated cross from Donati does not draw a reaction from Okaka. Goal kick.
    • 11' Bari continue to control possession as Parisi wins a throw off Maicon on the home side's left.
    • 10' Almiron will fancy this, with his cultured right boot... 25 yards out AND A SUPER FREE-KICK TO THE TOP LEFT BUT CESAR FLIES ACROSS TO TIP AWAY! Great strike, great save. Corner.
    • 9' Awesome surging run by Almiron, beating three men before being hacked down by Ranocchia on the edge of the box. Nasty scissors tackle, lucky not to walk. Almiron is okay though.
    • 8' Eto'o twists and turns on the end of the box but Pazzini cannot control the pass. Kharja gets on to it but his through ball is poor. Still Inter have the ball as they press higher up the pitch now...
    • 7' Super sliding interception from Ranocchia after Donati through ball almost put Okaka clear through!
    • 6' Maicon tries a scooped ball over the top but straight into the arms of Gillet, about 10 yards ahead of any of the front three.
    • 5' Brilliant touch by Maicon to kill Motta's ball and spin clear down the right, great low ball in to MILITO but he fails to turn on to it and Bari clear! First real threat from Inter.
    • 4' How odd. Pazzini is clearly shoved over on the right but the free-kick is awarded against him.
    • 3' Okaka almost gets away from Ranocchia and hoofed away by the Matrix. Inter have not started so well it must be said.
    • 2' The ball drops to Okaka in the Inter box but cleared away from him by Ranocchia. Now Almiron on it but his ball wide is cleared. Decent start from the bottom side.
    • 1' The first half gets underway!
    • 19:40 TEAMS - Bari: Gillet, Masiello, Glik, Rossi, Parisi, Almiron, Donati, Gazzi, Bentivoglio, Rudolf, Okaka /// Inter: Cesar, Maicon, Ranocchia, Materazzi, Chivu, Motta, Zanetti, Kharja, Milito, Eto'o, Pazzini
    • 19:35 Wesley Sneijder returns after his thigh injury picked up at the Club World Cup in December. Japan left-back Yuto Nagatomo, loaned from Cesena on deadline day to boost fourth-placed Inter's title challenge, is also in the squad, along with other new recruits Giampaolo Pazzini, Andrea Ranocchia and Houssine Kharja.
