Inter Milan 2 – Udinese 1 (Serie A, October 3, 2009) Inter broke the deadlock against Udinese after 22 minutes, Eto’o lead and attack through the middle before freeing Dejan Stankovic down the right with the midfielder cracking a beauty in the far post. The Zebrette were behind for just five minutes until the evergreen and red-hot Antonio Di Natale got behind the Inter defence and finished with aplomb. In the 92nd minute, after another abject Inter performance, Mourinho’s men found a winner they barely deserved as Wesley Sneijdner pick up an Eto’o cross on the left of the area before firing into the far corner.
Bari 0 – Catania 0 (Serie A, October 3, 2009) Despite several good chances being created at both ends, the game was ultimately decided by poor finishing rather than goals.
