Minute Text commentary
47' It's half-time at San Siro. Plenty of opportunities for Inter, but they've been unable to break the deadlock. Some excellent goalkeeping from Terracciano and an unfortunate strike against the bar from Lukaku
44' The Fourth Official announces that there will be two minutes of added time to close out the first half.
42' A late challenge from Ribery on Barella. Unsurprisingly, Giacomelli books the Fiorentina wide man
41' Corner is off the mark from Lukaku, who darts away from his markers to get on the end of Candreva's ball in, but none of his teammates are there to turn it in in the centre of the area
37' Ribery picks out Pezzella with a free-kick, but his header flies over
34' A massive chance for Lukaku: one-on-one with Terracciano, his shot rattles the bar. The opener remains elusive for the Nerazzurri
31' Eriksen looks to play Lukaku in with an excellent passage of one-touch football in midfield. A great idea but the ball goes out for a throw-in
28' A clash of heads between Young and Venuti, and the referee Piero Giacomelli stops the game and both medical staffs shoot onto the field to check on them
23' Vrij won't be able to carry on, and Inter are forced to make the change. Ranocchia takes his place in defence
22' Stefan de Vrij is down with a knee injury. The Nerazzurri medical staff are quick to attend to the Nerazzurri No.6's needs
19' Barella puts a searching ball through to Lukaku, but Terracciano is off his line and he slides in to beat the Belgian to it. Throw-in Inter.
18' LUKAKU OFF THE BAR! A brilliant corner from Eriksen, who picks Lukaku out unmarked in the centre of the area. The Nerazzurri number 9 finds acres of space, but he's denied the opener by the woodwork!
13' Fiorentina with their first shot of the night, with Ribery looking to counter following a period of sustained Nerazzurri pressure: but his effort falls flat and Handanovic comfortably makes the save
12' Eriksen puts it out wide to Young, who in turn picks out Candreva. But the pass is overhit and the move disintegrates
11' Another crucial save from Terracciano on Barella's powerful right-footed strike: the Viola keeper stretches to make the save. Corner Nerazzurri!
6' Lukaku with another chance, going for the volley after a Fiorentina clearance falls short. The power is there, but the aim is off, and it flies over
5' A miraculous save from Terracciano, who stops Lukaku's shot after a chaotic run of play in the Viola box following Eriksen's free kick
1' And we're off! The Viola are starting things off. Come on boys, forza Inter!!!
1' It's matchday 35 of the Serie A season, with Inter about to face Fiorentina at San Siro. The teams are making their way out onto the pitch, and kick-off is imminent!
Minute Text commentary
50' It ends goalless at San Siro: plenty of opportunities for Inter to break the deadlock, but an incredible performance from Terracciano and the Fiorentina post thwart the Nerazzurri.
49' Brozovic finds Lautaro with a cross from the right flank. Lautaro does well to beat Milenkovic to it, but he doesn't manage to get enough on the header, and Terracciano gets on the end of it.
45' The Fourth Official announces that there will be five minutes of added time.
42' Lautaro wins a free-kick in the attacking third. Eriksen steps up to take it, and lets off a venomous shot, but yet again, it's parried by Terracciano, who has been Fiorentina's saviour time and again tonight. Corner Inter!
37' Moses with the ball in, and Lautaro rises to meet it, but he's unable to hit the target.
35' Lautaro has a pop from the edge of the box, but it's straight at Terracciano.
34' A miraculous save from Handanovic, who keeps the score level after Lirola's effort on the end of a Fiorentina counter-attack.
33' Caceres is booked for excessive protest.
32' Barella with a sliding challenge, getting the ball but following through too hard. It's yellow for the Inter midfielder, meaning he will miss Saturday's clash with Genoa.
31' Inter make their final change of the night, with Brozovic replacing Gagliardini
30' Double change for Fiorentina: Pulgar comes on for Badelj, and Chiesa is on for Ribery
26' Moses presents an immediate threat from the right flank, cutting in and letting off a left-footed effort. The shot is blocked, and Terracciano saves comfortably.
25' Bastoni comes on for D'Ambrosio after the latter takes a blow to the forehead
24' Conte brings on Moses for Candreva
24' Triple change for Inter: Lautaro comes on for Alexis Sanchez
19' Kouamé turns and shoots, but Ranocchia does brilliantly to close him down.
18' Gagliardini with the headed effort off Eriksen's free-kick from the middle of the opposition half, but he misses by a whisker!
15' Candreva crosses it in from the right wing, but Pezzella is there to clear it out for a corner
13' It's a double change for Fiorentina: Ghezzal and Kouamé are on for Duncan and Cutrone
12' A hard challenge from Castrovilli on Gagliardini. The Fiorentina midfielder is booked for the offence
11' Fiorentina hit the Nerazzurri on the counter, Castrovilli drives one in from inside the area but it's not enough to catch Handanovic out.
7' SANCHEZ OFF THE POST! The Nerazzurri hit the woodwork once again! Terracciano is beaten by Sanchez's right-footed effort, but he's saved by the post.
6' Fiorentina make their first change of the night: Lirola is on for Dalbert
5' Young crosses in for Candreva in the box, who finds the net, but Inter are denied by the offside flag. We're still waiting for the opener at San Siro.
1' The second half is underway! No changes for either side. Come on boys, forza Inter!
