Minute Text commentary
46' The first half at San Siro comes to an end: the Nerazzurri have dominated following Lukaku's early goal, coming after just 32 seconds. Perin has kept his side in the game, saving everything else that came his way. 1-0 at the break.
45' There will be one minute of added time
44' An individual attack from Darmian, who sees Czyborra coming and goes for a diagonal run across the pitch, but the cross on his left foot isn't properly struck and nothing materialises
39' Lautaro goes back on the hunt, brought down by Strootman. The second yellow card of the game for Genoa
36' A double attempt from Lautaro, the first one on his right on the turn, the second a spectacular overhead kick on the end of Barella's cross. Perin saves both shots
31' Corner for Genoa, Handanovic comes out and takes the ball but after being chased down by Zapata he loses possession. The referee says play on but the Nerazzurri defender makes up for it, saving Scamacca's rebound shot
29' Lukaku goes for a cross on his left. Perin stretches and blocks the chance in its two phases, a great save
25' Lukaku hits it, Perin makes a save and the ball ends up on the edge of the box, but the Genoa defence get there in time
22' Lukaku runs the ball into a tough position and goes for a deflection: corner for Inter! Another dangerous opportunity from the corner spot but Perin takes care of the ball. The Nerazzurri are after a second!
18' Zapata takes down Barella: first yellow card of the match
17' Barella hits the crossbar! A shot from distance for the Nerazzurri number 23 with an almost perfect trajectory: the ball smashes off the bar and is punched away by Perin
15' Inter incredibly close to making it 2-0 yet again: Skriniar heads it, the ball is at Lautaro's feet but he's off balance and fails to hit the net! Ghiglione saves Genoa
13' Darmian almost makes it 2-0: following a ball from Lukaku, the number 36 beats Perin with a chip but it doesn't go in!
10' Rovella tries a long shot: the ball goes wide of Handanovic's net
6' A great chance for Lautaro, set up nicely by Barella: the "Toro" looks to get an assist in the middle for Perisic, but Goldaniga saves Genoa with a last minute interception
5' A great attempt from Lautaro, who eagerly closes down Radovanovic in the area, but loses momentum when he changes direction
1' Lukaku's right foot unstoppable for Perin: 'Big Rom' receives a long pass from Barella, does a switch with Lautaro and smashes it from the edge of the box. Inter are ahead before the end of the first minute!
1' GOAAAALLLLLL!!! LUKAKUUUU! Just over 30 seconds have passed and 'Big Rom' scores, giving Inter the lead: 1-0!!!
1' Everything is now ready for Chiffi to blow the first whistle: the hosts will kick off. Come on boys, COME ON INTER!
1' Conte can't play Hakimi, who is suspended. Darmian will play in his place, alongside the same ten other players who defeated AC Milan seven days ago.
1' After the big win in the #DerbyMilano, Inter will intend to carry on their run of victories at San Siro today against Genoa, for the 24th matchday of Serie A

Inter have won each of their last five Serie A games against Genoa without conceding a single goal: the Nerazzurri have never won six games in a row without conceding against a single opponent in the competition (five also against Atalanta in 1953).

Inter have won each of their last seven Serie A home games against Genoa: the Nerazzurri have only managed a longer such run against the Liguri between May 1956 and February 1965.

Inter have won each of their last eight Serie A home games: in the last 10 seasons, only Juventus (four times) and AS Roma (in 2016/17) have enjoyed a run of nine consecutive home wins in a single Serie A campaign.

Since Davide Ballardini joined Genoa, they have lost only one Serie A game (W5 D4), the joint fewest defeats during this period alongside Inter.

Inter have scored 57 goals in their 23 league games this season: Only in 1949/50 (65) and 1950/51 (60) have they scored more at this stage of a Serie A campaign.

Only Montpellier (12) have scored more headed goals than Inter (11) across the top-5 European leagues this season, while only Villarreal (one) have scored fewer headed goals than Genoa (two).

Inter have a duo with 30 goals combined in the opening 23 games of a Serie A season (Romelu Lukaku 17, Lautaro Martinez, 13) for their first time since 1958/59: 41 (27 di Antonio Angelillo, 14 di Edwin Firmani).

Lautaro Martínez has been involved in 17 league goals this season (13 goals, four assists), as many as he managed last term – Genoa are one of the eight sides against whom the Inter striker has not yet found the back of the net in Serie A.
