    • 88' Mirante forced to dive low to his right to claw out the shot by Faraoni.
    • 87' Inter president Massimo Moratti looks happy enough in the stands of the San Siro.
    • 86' Motta dumped to the ground by a yellow shirt before Inter go backwards. Referee can blow any time now.
    • 85' Parma have managed just one clean sheet at Inter’s ground (0-0 in April 1992). Not the best of records, it must be said.
    • 84' Game being played at walking pace as Inter continue to keep the ball.
    • 83' Home fans will be delighted with this victory. Plenty of empty spaces in the San Siro, but the homes fans are hanging around to give their players a deserved ovation.
    • 82' Zanetti races into the area to win Inter a corner, but Param deal with the danger to clear.
    • 81' Maicon looks like he has picked up a groin injury. Inter have used their subs for the night, but they have a 5-0 lead.
    • 80' Biabiany races into the area. He is chased by Maicon before Inter snuff out the danger.
    • 79' That is some strike by Faraoni. Pereira tries to do likewise minutes later, but drags the shot well wide of the target from distance.
    • 78' Giovinco clatters a free-kick off the wall and over the bar before Floccari nods over seconds later.
    • 77' Inter back to within five points of the joint leaders Milan and Juventus. Well in the title hunt now it would seem on this form.
    • 76' GOAL! Faraoni thumps a volley in off the bar with his first touch of the ball. What a finish that is from 22 yards. Magnificent stuff from the subsitute.
    • 75' Change then for Inter as Ranieri gives Milito a big pat on the back. Superb display from the forward as Davide Faraoni replaces him.
    • 74' Cesar forced to make a smart block from a crunching volley by Gobbi. Inter manage to scramble the ball clear.
    • 73' Zanetti seeing the funny side of that moment as he takes the adulation of the fans in the ground for the finish.

    • 71' A change for Inter as Alvarez is replaced by Coutinho.
    • 70' Giovinco cracks an effort at goal at the other end, but he misses the target as Parma suffer more frustration. Was a chance, but the shot is narrowly wide of the post.

    • 68' Brandao fouls Milito with a late push before Zaccardo is robbed of the ball by Nagatomo.
    • 67' Nagatomo makes a fine intervention at the back post to prevent Biabiany from getting a free shot at goal. Solid clearance.
    • 66' Musacci is introduced to replace Galloppa for the visiting side.
    • 65' Some fine stuff by Inter in keeping the ball. Knocking the ball around, and there is going to be another change coming for Parma.
    • 64' Maicon throws the cross over from out wide, but he overhits that one by a long margin.
    • 63' Not much life left in this match as Inter again go back to Cesar through Zanetti.
    • 62' Cesar forced to punched clear under pressure after Pelle had headed back across goal.
    • 61' Galloppa robs Zanetti on the edge of the Inter box, but the finish is awful as the ball flies miles wide and high for another Inter goalkick.
    • 60' Nagatomo brushed off the ball as he raced into the visiting box before Mirante is off his line to make sure Pazzini can't wreak more havoc.
    • 59' Morrone departs to be replaced by Pereira for Parma.
    • 58' Just a question of how many Inter can score. Playing with real confidence as Samuel races back to make the tackle on Giovinco.
    • 57' Poli is wheeled on to take over from Cambiasso, who is thrilled with his night's work.
    • 56' This match is all over bar the shouting and there is going to be a change coming for Inter.
    • 55' GOAL! Pazzini nets Inter's fourth goal of the evening. Parma ripped to shreds as Pazzini lifts the ball over Mirante from Milito's pass. Superb stuff.
    • 54' Change then for Parma as Modesto is replaced by Pelle.
    • 53' Zanetti takes a dull one from Gobbi as Inter win a free-kick at the halfway line. Ranieri looks on impassively from the side of the pitch.
    • 52' Mirante is quickly off his line to thwart the run of Pazzini as he raced through on goal.
    • 51' Gobbi just fails to pick out the run of Giovinco in the Inter box. Better play by Parma going forward.
    • 50' Giovinco tries to pick out the run of Gobbi, who is just offside as he dashed into the box. That looked to be a harsh decision.
    • 49' Floccari getting little or no joy out of the Inter defence as he fails to bound beyond the wily Samuel. Inter have the goalkick.
    • 48' Will take an almighty effort from Parma to hit back here, but where there is life there is hope as they say.
    • 47' Biabiany immediately involved as he hauls back the run of Nagatomo. Free-kick to Inter.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second period.
    • 45' There goes the whistle for the break. A 3-0 lead for Inter. Well in control of this match. 3-0 does not flatter the home team.
    • 44' Not going to be much time added to this half.
    • 43' Zanetti picks out the run of Maicon. Parma see off the run, but Inter have another corner. Maicon swings the ball in, but nodded clear by Zaccardo.
    • 42' Giovinco sees a shot deflect off a home shirt for a corner. His delivery isn't the best before the move breaks down seconds later. Disappointing for Parma.
    • 41' GOAL! Milito scores the third for Inter as Parma are made to pay for their wastefulness. Maicon with the cross and Milito fairly bullets that header beyond Mirate. 3-0 now. Surely game over.
    • 40' Another chance for Parma! Modesto with a free header from Biabiany's cross, but he nods wide. Another fine chance is wasted. That is two free headers in the Inter box.
    • 39' Paletta guilty of giving the ball away, but he wins it back seconds later as Motta squanders possession.
    • 38' Biabiany is off cue with a pass, but Parma pick up seconds later through Giovinco. Zaccardo's pass is hopeless as Nagatomo chests the ball back to Cesar.
    • 37' Ranieri is unhappy about something as he is spoken to by the fourth official.
    • 36' Alvarez is almost enjoying the freedom of the San Siro. Dominating this match. Paletta forced to scamper back to halt the progress of Milito. Timely tackle there that had to be made.
    • 35' Alvarez knocks the pass to Zanetti before Biabiany makes a fine tackle to halt the progress of Nagatomo out wide.
    • 34' Inter keeping the ball with some ease. Going from side to side again as Samuel just rolls the ball to Cesar. The home team don't need to chase this game.
    • 33' Alvarez tries to outfox a couple of Parma defenders, but he is crowded out and Parma will clear the danger.
    • 32' Brandao knocks the ball away from Pazzini as Inter earn another corner. This time Alvarez's delivery is pretty poor with Mirante coming to collect.
    • 31' Lovely run from Milito into the area. Really super stuff from Inter, but the shot is over the bar.
    • 30' A booking for Parma's Galloppa after he bunded Motta to the deck from behind.
    • 29' That was a fine attempt. Curls the ball beyond the two-man Inter wall, but Cesar dives to tip the ball past. Not sure that was on target, but Cesar was not taking any chances.
    • 28' Lucio takes out Giovinco with a late one. Free-kick chance for Parma. Will Giovinco go for goal from 25 yards out?
    • 27' More fine play involving Milito and Alvarez. Lovely stuff, but the ball runs through to Mirante in the visiting goal.
    • 26' Parma have won just once in 20 games at Inter’s ground (3-1 in May 1999). Doesn't look like that run is going to improve this evening.
    • 25' Parma forced to hack the ball away again as Pazzini threatened to cut a dash in on goal.
    • 24' Free-kick chance then for Parma. Giovinco gets plenty of power on the free-kick, but the ball flies inches over the bar.
    • 23' Samuel booked for a late body check on Giovinco as he tried to dash in on goal. Fortunate that was not a read card.
    • 22' Lovely delivery from Alvarez, but Motta just fails to connect with the cross. Inter looking so dangerous.
    • 21' Alvarez taken out of the play late by Zaccardo, and Inter have another free-kick in a dangerous position out wide.
    • 20' Great run and cross by Biabiany with Inter caught up the park. How costly will that miss prove to be?
    • 19' Parma blow a golden chance to pull one back as Giovinco nods wide from eight yards out with just Cesar to beat.
    • 18' Alvarez continues to get busy in the Parma half. Zanetti is enjoying another splendid display.
    • 17' GOAL! Motta scores for Inter, who are really starting to motor in Milan. Great finish from 22 yards. Low and hard as the ball flew beyond Mirante.
    • 16' Alvarez really coming to life in this half. Some superb ball skills by him. Dangerous times for Parma.
    • 15' Inter deal with the Giovinco corner before launching another attack on the break. Fine cross from Alvarez, but Pazzini knocks the volley miles over the bar.
    • 14' Not a bad ball from Giovinco as Maicon races back to head behind for a corner.
    • 13' Parma earn a free-kick out wide that Giovinco is going to throw into the Inter box.
    • 12' Milito just flicked out his right foot with Parma caught on their heels. Ranieri is giving that goal the thumbs up. A 1-0 lead for Inter then.
    • 11' GOAL! Milito scores for Inter. Lovely finish from Alvarez's cross and the home side have the lead. Superb move it must be said.
    • 10' Inter coach Claudio Ranieri doing plenty of pointing in these opening moments as Alvarez picks up at the back before rolling the ball back to his defence.
    • 9' Inter have won the last five games at home with Parma, scoring always at least two goals.
    • 8' Alvarez knocks a cross into the area, but the delivery is poor as Mirante comes out to collect with some ease.
    • 7' Gobbi fails to outfox Maicon in the box as the Brazilian lets the ball run through for a goalkick to Inter.
    • 6' Inter keeping the ball well in these early moments. Moving from side to side with some menace, but Parma hold firm to clear the danger.
    • 5' Samuel attacks Alvarez's corner, but his header is straight down the throat of Mirante, who makes a comfortable stop.
    • 4' Inter have won four games in a row; should they beat Parma, it would be the first time they win five consecutive league games since departure of José Mourinho (last time was between April and May 2010).
    • 3' Pazzini with Inter's first shot at goal of the evening. Some fine build-up play before the striker sees his shot spin wide from the edge of the area.
    • 2' Cesar off his line in the opening seconds to collect with Giovinco threatening in the home box.
    • 1' Parma get us off and running at the San Siro. Parma in yellow, Inter in traditional blue and black.
    • 19.42 Parma have a fully-fit squad, with the suspended striker Cristiano Lucarelli the only missing player.
    • 19.40 Inter are still without Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder as he recovers from a nagging thigh injury. Striker Diego Forlan misses out with an ankle injury, while defenders Jonathan and Cristian Chivu are longer-term absentees.
