Serie A: Inter 2-1 Catania

Quaresma scores on debut, Terlizzi nets own goal as ten-man Inter beat Sicilians

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.
