2 red cards in 37 minutes. 3 red cards in 73 minutes.

Inter Milan were reduced to 9 men and the 1st half wasn’t even over with yet. Walter Samuel and Ivan Cordoba both picked up 2 yellow cards and saw Jose Mourinho’s men gasping for air. Inter managed to keep their composure and didn’t allow Sampdoria to take advantage of the lack of bodies they had on the pitch. In the 73rd minute, Sampdoria’s Pazzini picked up his 2nd yellow of the match and the field was a little more even now. Clearly it was more even because 4 minutes later Eto’o had a glorious opportunity to put his team ahead but Storari came up with a fabulous save. Overall, it was not a match full with action in terms of shots on goal and constant pressure on the opposing goalkeepers. However, if you’re into the whole dominatrix thing then you may have enjoyed this thoroughly.

Shots on goal:

Inter Milan- 1

Sampdoria- 3

Fouls Committed:

Inter Milan- 18

Sampdoria- 13

1 point was enough for Inter to put an 8 point cushion between them and 2nd place Roma, while the point for Sampdoria temporarily puts them in the crucual Champions League qualifying 4th place.
