Inter Milan Vs Napoli 2-1 Players Rating

Player Ratings: Inter 2-1 Napoli


Julio Cesar - 6.0:
Aside from picking the ball out of his goal once, did not have too many notable saves to make today. Always ready and alert though.

Maicon - 7.0: Superb in the first half, bombing forward and providing the assist for Muntari's goal. Pushed back by Mannini in the second half.

Cordoba - 7.5: The best of the Inter backline. Solid defensively, and capped off a fine afternoon with an excellent goal.

Samuel - 6.0: Struggled today at times against the physical Zalayeta and skilful Lavezzi. The latter left him for dead in the build-up to his goal, although he did deny the striker later on with a crucial tackle.

Maxwell - 6.0:
Held his own against Maggio, although Maxwell was non-existent as an offensive force and rarely pushed past the half way line.

Zanetti - 6.5:
A busy display from the Inter captain and legend, although he missed a great chance to kill the game five minutes from time.

Cambiasso - 7.0: Sat in front of the back four, and did an excellent job in closing the space that Hamsik thrives on when making his late runs into the box.

Muntari - 8.5: Is turning into an excellent summer signing. Created the first goal, scored the second himself, and had a fine game, winning tackles and driving forward.

Stankovic - 6.0: A quiet game from Stankovic, who could not repeat his outstanding efforts from against Juventus last week.

Cruz - 6.5: Led the line well, and executed a brilliant backheel in the build-up to Muntari's goal. Faded in the second half, and was replaced.

Ibrahimovic - 6.0: Not one of Ibrahimovic's best afternoons. Improved as the game went on, but not too many of his tricks and flicks came off.

Subs: Adriano 6.5, Burdisso 6.0, Jimenez N/A


Iezzo - 7.0:
Did not have too many saves to make tonight, although he did produce one excellent stop from Zanetti. Blameless on both goals he conceded.

Cannavaro - 6.5: Coped relatively well on the right of Napoli's defensive centre three, and was not troubled that often by Ibrahimovic. Gave the ball away carelessly to Zanetti though late on, and should have been punished.

Rinaudo - 7.0: A surprise starter ahead of Santacroce, but he was calm and assured in the centre of defence, and barely put a foot wrong.

Aronica - 5.0: The weak link of the Napoli defence this afternoon. Lost Cordoba for the first goal, was suspect on the second, and made a number of rash challenges.

Pazienza - 6.0: Quietly went about his work in the middle-of-the-park, but wasted possession on a few occasions.

Gargano - 7.5:
Took a while to get going but, once he did, the Uruguayan delivered another impressive performance. Excellent in the second half, directing all of Napoli's moves.

Maggio - 6.0:
Clocked up the miles down the right flank and, if anything won his match-up with Maxwell on points.

Mannini - 6.5: Had a tough time against Maicon in the first half, but turned the tables on the Brazilian after the interval and looked dangerous down the left.

Hamsik - 6.0: Did a lot of running and unselfish work in the middle-of-the-park, but did not stamp his usual authority on the game, and was substituted on 65 minutes.

Lavezzi - 8.0: Another exceptional performance from the young phenomoneon. If there proves to be a better goal in Serie A this weekend than the one he scored today, it will be one hell of a goal.

Zalayeta - 6.5: I once said that Zalayeta was the best in the world at backheels, and he proved my point today with a fantastic colpo di tacco for Lavezzi's goal. Gave Samuel an awkward time of things.

Subs: Blasi 6.0, Denis 6.0, Bogliacino N/A
