49' It's half-time at San Siro. The Nerazzurri are up 1-0 at the interval thanks to D'Ambrosio's eleventh-minute opener on the assist from D'Ambrosio!
49' Foul from Brozovic on Mario Rui. It's yellow for the Nerazzurri No.77.
47' A miraculous save from Meret to parry Brozovic's low drilled effort, off an assist from Lukaku, preventing the Nerazzurri from extending their lead!
45' The Fourth Official announces that there will be four minutes of added time.
45' A nice one-two between Brozovic and Lukaku, and the former looks to pick the Nerazzurri out behind Napoli lines, but Koulibaly is there to intercept.
42' Maksimovic with the effort after a deflected effort from Zielinski. But it's one to forget for the Napoli defender.
38' Sanchez darts down the touchline, races towards Meret and looks to chip it over the Napoli keeper. The last line of the Partenopei defence looks like he is set to save it, but the assistant's flag brings play to a halt. Sanchez is offside by a whisker.
36' A vital defensive contribution from Candreva, who robs Insigne of a tap in inside the area.
32' Lukaku picks up the pace and catches Koulibaly, and looks to pick out Sanchez from deep, but Sanchez loses his footing and fails to get the shot off.
31' A lovely ball from Insigne, who picks out Politano at the far post, but Handanovic is there to stop his left-footed effort.
30' A good passage of play from Inter on the right wing: Sanchez looks to sneak it through to D'Ambrosio, but it's just overhit from the Nerazzurri man.

22' A tactical foul from Sanchez on Insigne. It's yellow for the Nerazzurri No.7.
21' A great break from Bastoni, who charges into the box, looks for Lukaku with the assist, but it's blocked at the last moment. Inter will have to settle for a corner!
20' A left-footed effort from the edge of the area, and a fortuitous deflection off Insigne almost gets the better of Handanovic.
18' Insigne puts in a cross for Politano, but Biraghi gets ahead of the Partenopei forward and nods it out for a corner.
15' Napoli look to bounce back, with Insigne looking to pick out Milik from deep, but the Nerazzurri defence holds firm and closes him down.
11' Goal!!! Goaaaallll!!! D'Ambrosiooooo! A deserved lead for Inter after some persistent pressure: Biraghi tees it up cleverly for D'Ambrosio who drills it low into the bottom corner past Meret: 1-0!!!
9' Cross in from Biraghi, but Mario Rui keeps his cool and gets there ahead of Candreva.
7' Antonio Conte apply some serious pressure in the opening minutes of the game. Candreva puts a dangerous cross in after receiving the short corner, but none of his Nerazzurri teammates manage to get on the end of it.
1' The Nerazzurri are quick to get onto the attack: Biraghi puts a searching ball into the centre of the box, but Mario Rui makes a crucial clearance to clear the danger.
1' The match is underway! Come on, boys, forza Inter!!!
