Inter Milan are closer to winning the Scudetto title this season as both sides met on Monday night.

Inter was expected to win since they were playing at home and they managed to secure all three points against Genoa.

Kristjan Asllani opened the scoring in the 30th minute scoring the first goal for his Inter Milan side. He was set up by his Chile teammate Alexis Sanchez for the goal.

Chile star later doubled his side’s advantage as the home side was awarded a penalty in the match.

Sanchez stepped up and converted the spot-kick in aplomb thus sending Genoa's goalkeeper Josep Martinez the wrong way. He scored to make it 2-0 in the 38th minute. It finished 2-0 in favour of Inter Milan at the half-time break.

After the resumption of the second half, Genoa’s Johan Vasquez scored to reduce the deficit to 2-1 in the 54th minute of the match.

He scored following a low long-range drive that evaded everybody in the box and sailed into the Inter’s net for a goal.

Despite further pressure from both sides amid the 2-1 score line, it finished in favour of Inter Milan as they marched closer to the title summit this season.
