Inter beat Genoa to go 15 points clear at top

Inter Milan stretched their lead at the top of Serie A to 15 points as first-half goals from Kristjan Asllani and Alexis Sanchez secured a 2-1 home win against Genoa on Monday (Mar 4). Inter moved further ahead on 72 points after second-placed Juventus lost 2-1 at Napoli on Sunday. Genoa are 12th with 33. Inter's Simone Inzaghi had good reason to celebrate his 300th Serie A match as a manager, with his side winning all 12 of their matches so far this year and matching the points total they achieved in the whole of last season.

Inter Milan moved 15 points clear at the top of Serie A with victory over Genoa.

Kristjan Asllani's strike and an Alexis Sanchez penalty, after Nicolo Barella was fouled inside the box, put the hosts 2-0 up inside 38 minutes. Johan Vasquez pulled one back after half-time, but Inter held on to record their ninth successive league win.

The result, also their 12th in a row in all competitions, moved them 15 points above second-placed Juventus. Inter have now won 23 of their 27 Serie A games this season, with their solitary defeat coming back in September. They have not dropped points since a 1-1 draw against Genoa on Dec 29.
