1st half / 2nd half

47' / Maicon heads behind for a corner after Mutu fails to reach Santana's dangerous cross from the right.
47' / It's 0-0 at half time.
46' / Balotelli's curling free kick is saved by Frey.
45' / The first card of the match (a yellow one) goes to Gamberini for clattering Balotelli to the ground inches outside the area.
45' / Two minutes of additional time.
43' / Materazzi connects with Balotelli's left-wing corner - but the defender's header is high and wide.
42' / Inter so close... Julio Cruz' header from Stankovic's pin-point cross is miraculously tipped over by Frey.
41' / Balotelli swings a cross into the box. Ujfalusi clears with his head.
38' / Adriano Mutu's sweet strike from distance sails wide of the left post.
36' / Great ball in from the right by Maicon. Frey climbs at the back post and snatches the ball to deny Cambiasso.
35' / Frey is still on the pitch, but Montolivo just took a goal kick for him.
34' / Play held up as Frey receives more treatment. Reserve keeper Avramov is warming up.
33' / Ferocious shot from Javier Zanetti. It was about 25 yards from goal. Frey parries, and it's a corner.
33' / Cruz' downwards header from Balotelli's corner forces Frey into a brilliant save. Maicon keeps the keeper busy with a low shot from 20 yards.
32' / Maicon heads wide Balotelli's cross from a 40-yard free kick.
29' / Frey's okay, and play resumes.
28' / Frey gets hurt after Mario Balotelli's attempt at a shot on the turn goes wrong. Play momentarily interrupted as the French keeper receives treatment to a kick in the tummy.
25' / Great move by the Nerazzurri. In fact, by Vieira and Balotelli. The pair combine to devastating effect but the 17-year-old's final cross is cut out by Gamberini.
24' / Back in the Viola half, Stankovic drifts inside, creating space for a shot, but his low 25-yarder is too weak to severely test Frey.
22' / Fiorentina close through Mutu. Julio Cesar makes a last-gasp save.
21' / Santana skips past Vieira and Cambiasso, and weaves his way into the area before serving Mutu. Zanetti ends the move with a hooked clearance.
18' / Fiorentina get into our half and Mutu has a go from 25 yards. The Romanian's volley is way over.
17' / Maxwell tries to take on two in the box after collecting a pass from Balotelli. It's one too many.
15' / The flag goes up for offside as Supermario (also known as Turbomario) runs to meet Cruz's high ball over the defence.
14' / Cruz gives the ball to Stankovic and the Serbian makes a dash towards the edge of the box, but Ujfalusi times his tackle well.
12' / Inter close through Vieira. His brilliant flicked header from Balotelli's corner is tipped over by his compatriot Sebastien Frey.
11' / Vieira wins an aerial duel with Ujfalusi just inside the area and gets into a shooting position - but the Viola captain gets back to block the France captain's effort.
10' / Inter earn a free kick after a Gobbi challenge on Cruz. Balotelli's cross into the box is deflected behind for a corner by Montolivo.
10' / Balotelli's corner is cleared by Gamberini.
8' / At the other end Pazzini crosses to the far side. Montolivo collects and shoots from a tight angle. Maicon blocks.

6' / Gobbi intercepts Balotelli's ball wide for Stankovic.
4' / Mutu misses with his header from Santana's right-wing cross.

report

MILAN - Esteban Cambiasso and Mario Balotelli scored in the space of seven second half minutes to see off Fiorentina.

The win means Inter's breathing space at the top of the table is still four points with five games of the Serie A season remaining.

Inter were always in control against the Viola and could have gone into the break with a healthy lead.

Patrick Vieira, improving with every game, carved out the first chance on 12 minutes, forcing Frey into a tipped save with a flicked header from Balotelli's corner.

Domination in midfield ensured plenty of chances and Frey produced another save from captain Zanetti's ferocious 25-yarder.

Julio Cruz got in on the act with a couple of headers but Frey, always on top form against the Nerazzurri, made more vital blocks.

Inter edged in front ten minutes after the restart, Patrick Vieira gliding past Liverani on the right and sliding into the middle for Cambiasso to slot home his eighth of the season.

Mario Balotelli, making his first start at the Meazza, killed off the game on 62 minutes. The 17-year-old sensation took Cruz' through ball into the area after beating the offside trap and coolly slotted beyond Frey for his second goal in as many games.

The Viola offered little in the way of a reaction, with Mutu and Vieri forcing Julio Cesar into two fine saves in added time.
