1st half / 2nd half

47' / Boos for Tedesco ring round the stadium as the players make their way to the tunnel. It's 1-1 at the break, with Quaresma replying to Plasmati's opener and the Nerazzurri down to ten men after Muntari's dismissal.
46' / Stovini goes close to scoring an own goal from Maicon's cross.
45' / Damati books Tedesco.
45' / Tedesco remains on the ground after slap in the face from Muntari. Damato sends off the Ghanaian.
45' / Two minutes of added time.
43' / WE'RE LEVEL!!!!!!!! Within a minute, Ricardo Quaresma's right-wing trivela takes a deflection off Mascara and goes in at the near post. CATANIA 1-1 INTER.
42' / GOAL. Another corner for Catania. Mascara's cross is blocked by Maxwell but Catania keep possession and Mascara feeds Tedesco, who crosses to Plasmati, who heads past a hapless Julio Cesar. INTER 0-1 CATANIA.
41' / Maxwell blazes high and wide after powering past three down the left.
41' / Corner for Catania. What resembles a rugby scrum on the edge of the area quickly becomes a six-yard box goalmouth scramble as Vieira boots to safety.
40' / Javier Zanetti is warming up. That could mean two things: either Maicon will be rested in the second half ahead of Tuesday's Champions League to Athens, or José will make a midfield change. We will see.
36' / Actually, it's not that bad. Maicon is back on the pitch.
34' / Play interrupted as Maicon requires medical attention after outstretching his right leg to intercept a pass. It doesn't look good.
33' / Quaresma's other speciality is the rabona.

32' / If you didn't know what a trivela is, it's Quaresma's speciality - a fast cross using the outside of his foot.

30' / Captain Materazzi cuts out a Catania counter and plays shot to Muntari, who sends a long-range pass to the feet of Ibra on the right wing. The Swede's low ball into the box is intercepted by Biagianti.
28' / A Nike pitchside ad reads: "Più goal, grazie". We agree.
25' / Bizzarri palms behind a powerful 25-yard shot from Muntari as the Ghanaian international goes close.
25' / "For me it's a nice thing to do, and when I've finished it I feel cleansed of my sins." Sulley Muntari's comments about Ramadam on Italian television network Mediaset.
22' / Free kick to us after a foul on Figo. It's 30 metres from goal. Ibrahimovic's effort comes back off the wall. The ball falls to the feet of Quaresma, who 'trivelas' it into the arms of Bizarri.
21' / He's here, there and everywhere. Quaresma drifts to the right flank and combines well with Maicon. The Brazilian sweeps in a cross for Balotelli who is beaten to the ball by Bizarri.

report

MILAN - Portuguese winger Quaresma scored on his first outing in an Inter shirt as José Mourinho celebrated his home debut in the Serie A championship with a 2-1 victory over Walter Zenga's Catania.

The Nerazzurri fell behind to Plasmati's goal in the 42nd minute but were level within sixty seconds when Quaresma's trivela went in via a deflection off Mascara.

A dominant Inter were reduced to ten men before the break with Muntari receiving his marching orders for slapping Tedesco in the face.

Mourinho's men edged in front early in the second half when Terlizzi inadvertently headed Maicon's cross in off the post.

Catania were unable to capitalise on the man advantage and Inter could have scored twice in the closing minutes, Bizzari pulling off miraculous saves from Ibrahimovic.
