Inter slip up as Sansone fires Parma

ParmaParma easily held on to the win which lifted them to seventh in the table and above Milan, maintaining an unbeaten home record that stretches back to March.

Inter had fifteen minutes left to muster an equaliser, but it was Parma who seemed more likely to score with Benalouane's header tipped over the crossbar five mins from time.

Parma gained a deserved lead in the seventy-fifth min when Sansone picked up possession inside his own half and set off on a 30-yard run which culminated in a low shot into the left-hand corner of Handanovic's goal.

Five minutes into the second half, Biabiany flicked a header just wide of the far post as Parma continued to dictate affairs. A free-kick from Valdes was then deflected off the knee of Cambiasso, but Handanovic had the shot covered.

Biabiany was especially inspired against his previous club and his shot in the forty-fourth min flew just wide of the far post with Handanovic standing idly by, unable to intervene even had the shot been on target.

It was an indication of what was to come when Walter Samuel almost turned a cross into his own goal in the fourth minute, but Handanovic was alert to the risk.

Parma certainly had no fear and continued to attack their opponents, whose only shot in the first half came from Esteban Cambiasso, but the ball was blocked on the line.

Inter Milan were again off colour, losing for the second time in 3 games since beating Juve 3-1 in Turin.

Sansone scored the only goal of the game 15 minutes from time to give Parma a deserved win at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.

Milan failed to take advantage of Juventus' defeat to Milan on Sunday as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Parma.
