The corner put into the box is headed clear by Lukaku.
- Yellow cardMatteo DarmianInternazionale
YELLOW! Darmian is booked after colliding into Inglese and Parma have a free-kick in a good position. The ball floated in towards Pelle deflects out for a corner.
FOUR minutes of added time. Inter are closing in on an important victory here, but Parma are still in the hunt for an equaliser.
Lukaku is down on the ground after being pulled down by Bani and he wins Inter a free-kick. Moments ago he drove a shot from a good central position from around 20-yards out straight at Sepe.
SUBS! For Parma, Pelle is on for Hernani and for Inter Darmian comes in for Perisic. It's a Premier League love-in!
Karamoh brings down Bastoni and Inter can have a bit of a breather.
After plenty of deliberation over the position of the wall Hernani shoots but he drives it straight into the wall.
YELLOW! Lautaro is booked for a tripping up Karamoh, catching his ankle. Parma have a free-kick in a dangerous position on the edge of the box.
Parma are continuing to apply the pressure but Inter are making life difficult for them.
- OffAlexis SánchezInternazionale
- OnLautaro MartínezInternazionale
Parma counter and Hernani leads it. He shoots but it's blocked and Inter can snuff out the danger. Can the Serie A strugglers pull of a dramatic late comeback here? SUB! Inter are bringing on some fresh firepower. Lautaro comes on for Alexis.
GOAL! It's the commentator's curse... Hernani scores for Parma! A chipped ball to the far post from Pezzella finds the Brazilian and he confidently volleys it into the net from close range! It's a lifeline for Parma!
Parma are pushing for a goal but this will likely play right into Inter's hands. There's nothing they like more than sitting deep and hitting their opponents on the counter-attack.
- OffChristian EriksenInternazionale
- OnArturo VidalInternazionale
SUBS! Three Parma changes. Pezzella, Busi and Inglese come on for Valenti, Kucka and Gagliolo. For Inter, Vidal - with a fresh haircut - is on for Eriksen.
CHANCE! Another Inter counter-attack. Eriksen finds Sanchez with a lovely long pass. The Chile international then picks out Lukaku at the far post but he misdirects his header wide.
- GoalAlexis SánchezInternazionale
GOAL!! Alexis Sanchez scores and it's a classic Inter goal! Parma start putting some nice moves together, but the league leaders nick the ball in midfield and Lukaku streaks forward before laying off for Sanchez to slot the ball into the bottom corner! That was rutheless!
Bastoni fouls Karimoh and Parma have a free-kick which comes to nothing.
MISS!! Bastoni's exceptional sliced pass finds Perisic. Instead of squaring to Lukaku he goes for goal but he blasts it over the bar! Lukaku is fuming with his teammate.
- GoalAlexis SánchezInternazionale
GOAL! Alexis has broken the deadlock! Lukaku is intercepted by Brugman but the ball goes straight into the path of Alexis whose close-range shot is tamely parried by Sepe. Barriolo may have cleared it off the line... but it just crossed over! Inter lead!
Perisic's low cross is cleared away by Bani! That was vital. Inter have stepped things up a gear.
Karamoh fouls Brozovic and that alleviates some pressure off Parma's backline. Inter have began the second half well, but Parma are holding firm defensively.
OUCH! There's been a nasty collision between de Vrij and Kucka. Both are down on the ground receiving medical treatment.
We are back underway at Stadio Ennio Tardini! Will Parma cause the unlikeliest of upsets tonight? It could be on the cards judging by Inter's flat first-half performance. There's a Parma sub and it's Man who is finally coming off for compatriot Mihaila.
- End of 1st Half
The referee blows for half-time and it's been a great contest so far. Both sides have had good chances to score, with Lukaku having arguably the best of the lot, but we go into the break goalless.
CHANCE! Kurtic crosses a ball to the near post which Man flicks on... and it ends up powerfully curling over the bar! Parma are giving this a really good go.
MISS! Perisic dinks a cross to the far post from close range for Lukaku... but he cannot direct the header goalwards under pressure from Bani! The Belgian striker has had few good chances this half. There will be THREE minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
Inter are applying the pressure. Hakimi finds Brozovic in the box but he wildly swipes at it and completely misses the ball!
Man is still playing on somewhat unbelievably, even though it looked like they would bring on fellow Romanian Mihaila in his place.
Hakimi is tripped up by Gagliolo and Conte on the touchline is not best pleased with what he's just seen. Man is down on the floor yet again... surely this time he will come off. He simply does not look well.
BIG SAVE! Brozovic slips through Lukaku... he shoots first-time inside the box off his weaker right foot but Sepe does well to get his body behind it!
Karamoh looked to be barged over by Bastoni but the referee allows play to continue. This game is surprisingly still finely poised.
Play has stopped again as Man looks to be suffering from dizziness. It looks like he will still play on despite this being the second medical stoppage for the striker.
Hakimi is fouled and Inter have a free-kick to the right of the box. Eriksen will take it. SAVE!! He swings the ball into the area and Sepe pulls off a fine block to deny Skriniar from point-blank range!! Parma counter through Karamoh but Barella makes a vital interception on the edge of the Inter box.
BIG CHANCE!! Hakimi motors forward and drives into the Parma box. He gets all the way to the byline before squaring it for Eriksen to apply a simple finish, but it goes just behind him! That was stunning from the Moroccan wingback. He's so quick!
There's a pause in play as Man is down on the ground receiving medical treatment after colliding into Bastoni. He has gone off to the sideline for further attention and we play on.
Karamoh works hard to dispossess a lackadaisical Brozovic and lays it off to Man. The Romanian striker attempts a low ball across the face of the goal but Handanovic can claim it. Parma look a lot more up for it tonight than Inter do right now. They are not playing like a team second-bottom in the table.
Inter Milan have their first corner of the evening as Bani clears behind under pressure from Alexis. Eriksen plays an outswinger which ends up as a Parma free-kick for a foul from de Vrij on Bani.
Alexis Sanchez's pass looking for Lukaku does not reach the Belgium international and rolls into Sepe's hands. Inter are certainly not sparkling at the moment.
Barella's long ball finds Lukaku on the break. He drifts in from the right and lets rip a left-footed strike but it goes well wide.
It is Parma who are enjoying lots of the ball. They've started really well here but they must make it count against this in-form Inter side.
WHAT A SAVE! A free header from Kurtic, who drives late into the box, is parried away by Handanovic! What a stop! The Slovenian midfielder will feel he should have buried that.
CHANCE! At the other end, Karamoh attempts an audacious strike from distance which flies over the bar.
Inter are dominating possession as you would expect. Can they make it count, though? Valenti gets the better of Lukaku in a physical duel. That is one will surely develop as the game ticks along.
Sanchez tries a reverse pass to Perisic on the overlap but it's overcooked from the Chile international and it rolls out for a goal-kick.
VAR has decided we will keep on playing. It was a game of who kicked who first but they must've judged it as Man kicking Barella. That was a very close call.
Brozovic cheaply gives away a Parma corner. Hernani plays a low ball into the box and Kucka has a shot which is blocked. Then, moments later, Man goes down in the box under a challenge from Barella with the Parma striker trying to shoot and the Inter man trying to make a last-ditch clearance. It's going to VAR...
Hakimi goes down in a bundle after a strong challenge from Gagliolo. It looked to be a clean tackle.
SAVE! Hakimi drills a low ball across the goalmouth which Sepe bats away! He got in so easily there!
Perisic pokes a cross in looking for Lukaku but it goes just beyond him. Inter on the front foot already with fireworks going off in the background.
- 1st Half
We are underway!
The teams are out onto the pitch at the Stadio Ennio Tardini! Surely Inter won't slip up here... will they?
The formations this evening. Kick-off is just 10 minutes away!
For Inter it is a significant clash tonight. They know they cannot afford to slip up in a game like this if they are to win their first Serie A title since 2010.
We're edging closer to kick-off...
Tonight's venue where Parma will be looking to win their first match since November 30th. They are in a truly perilous situation in 19th on just 15 points after 24 matches.
Alexandre Lacazette will reportedly be heading out with a new striker arriving at the Emirates Stadium this summer as Arsenal identify an 'upgrade' in attack.
The reports in Italy claim that the Gunners believe Andre Silva will be the perfect replacement for the Frenchman at the end of the season.
