MILAN - The game Inter-Parma ends 5-2, the first of Sunday's fixtures in the 14th round of the Serie A TIM 2010-2011.
Inter start chasing the game from the early stages, falling behind after just 4 minutes to a goal by former Inter man Hernan Crespo. But even less time is needed by Stankovic who turned it around in 60 seconds by scoring twice, aided by the perfect services from Biabiany (18th and 19th). And it was again the Frenchman to help the ball on for the Nerazzurri's third goal which was a great touch by Super Cambiasso (23rd). Crespo got his second and got Parma back int eh game in the 36th, but in the second half there was the return on the field and more importantly the goal for Thiago Motta just before the fantastic Stankovic got his hat-trick (75th).
FIRST HALF - With Eto'o banned for three games, Benitez relies on Goran Pandev for the Nerazzurri attack, with Biabiany, Sneijder and Santon in support to the Macedonian. On the bench three players from Inter's under 19 squad: Alibec, Biraghi and Benedetti. For Parma, there are Angelo with Crespo and Giovinco.
After the warm welcome by the Nerazzurri fans, Hernan Crespo immediately gets one over his former club and puts Parma ahead: from Angelo's cross, the Argentine aimed for the near post and with a back-heel he put the ball in net for the 0-1. The Nerazzurri tried to reply wiht a Sneijder cross for Pandev, the Macedonian controls well and goes for the goal, but his shot is deflected for a corner kick. Castellazzi denies Candreva's shot from distance (12'), whilst in the 14' Giovinco's right footed shot goes marginally over the bar. Inter's equaliser arrived in the 18th with a powerful and precise shot by Stankovic from outside the box which is deflected by Lucarelli for the 1-1. The Dragon doesn't give in and on Biabiany's perfect assist, a cut back fot the Serbian, another deflection - this time by Antonelli - the Nerazzurri turned the game around. An unstoppable Inter clinched the third goal. In the 23rd, from a Sneijder corner, Biabiany helped it on with his head and Cambiasso's winning touch was enough from two yards out to make it 3-1. In the 32nd, Pandev, could have got the fourth, but Lucarelli blocked him before Mirante collected the ball. Crespo gets Parma back in the game in the 36th: a poor clearance by Materazzi fell to Gobbi who first time served the Argentine, 3-2. But in the 39th - again with Crespo - Parma came close to a third. On Angelo's cross, in fact, the former Inter man headed the ball, but Castellazzi was ready to save the result. In the 43rd, Lucarelli clashed with Paletta and Inter earned a free kick from 23m, taken by Sneijder, the ball hit the wall and Dzemaili's header sent it out for a corner. After no injury time, Giannoccaro blew for the end of the first half.
SECOND HALF - The second half starts with Natalino on for Santon, Valiani for Gobbi in Parma and two great chances for each team, Inter first, with Cambiasso almost scoring from a Sneijder free kick (2nd); at the other end, from Giovinco's vertical ball, Crespo's effort was dealt with really well by Castellazzi who sent it wide with his left foot. In the 7th Parma again, Crespo's pass lands to Angelo and it was the post that saved the Nerazzurri. From the 22nd, after the injury against Cagliari, Thiago Motta finally returns to the field, Biabiany makes way, whilst in the 4th there was a change for Parma's front line: Giovinco off, Bojinov on. Motta came back and did so in the best way possible , with a great goal , which took the score to 4-2 thanks to Sneijder's cross and Materazzi's help. Parma tried to respond, hitting the crossbar when Crespo latched on the Antonelli's cross (29th), but Stankovic was in great vein and got his hat-trick: Sneijder's assist was followed by a powerful shot by the Serbian who made it five. Standing ovation for Stankovic as he made way for Nwankwo in the 33rd minute. In the 35th, an unlucky Pandev missed a chance after Thiago Motta's creation as he sent the ball into the side netting, whilst Castellazzi, 5 minutes later, was instrumental in a double save on Paletta's effort. In the 43rd minute Inter were down to ten men: Sneijder was forced to leave the pitch after taking a knock to his ankle. After two minutes of injury time, Giannoccaro called an end to the game. The Nerazzurri returned to winning ways at the Meazza and reach 23pts in the table.
