Italy, Serie A, Milan – Inter 3:0
Goran Pandev started for Inter and played until the 55th minute when he was replaced by Ivan Cordoba.  Pandev started on the right wing in a 4-2-3-1 formation but Pandev also spent time playing on the left wing by switching positions with Samuel Eto’o.  Milan took the game to Inter and opened the scoring in the 1st minute when Brazilian Pato capitalized after some bad positioning by Inter defenders Andrea Ranocchia and Cristian Chivu and scored an easy goal to give Milan the early lead.  Pandev then had the first chance for Inter in the 6th minute but his shot from outside of the box with his weaker right foot lacked power and was easily saved by the Milan keeper.  In the 19th minute, Pandev made a nice pass to Giampaolo Pazzini who found some space and had a great opportunity but his shot from close range was straight at the keeper.  Pandev was having a quiet game like most of his teammates and things only got worse for Inter when Romanian defender Cristian Chivu was shown a straight red card for a foul on Pato.  Immediately after the red card, Inter manager Leonardo substituted Pandev and brought on defender Ivan Cordoba to fill the hole that was created by the Chivu red card.  Overall, Milan was the better team and fully deserved the win that puts them five points ahead of Inter at the top of the Serie A table.
