    • 72' Genoa sub: Rossi off for Piscitella.
    • 71' Really good tackle from Zanetti to prevent Anselmo getting in.
    • 70' Anselmo is the man who comes on to replace Bertolacci.
    • 68' Indeed Bertolacci does go off.
    • 67' Looks like Bertolacci is cramping badly.
    • 66' Inter starting to look a little desperate, pinging loose balls in an attempt to unlock the Genoa defence. Not time to panic yet.
    • 64' Immobile looks to have shrugged it off and is now moving well again.
    • 63' Immobile has gone down clutching his leg. He’s up again but limping. So he really is immobile!
    • 62' Chivu strikes it straight into the wall and Genoa breathe again.
    • 61' Tozser brings down Cassano on the edge of the box. Big chance now.
    • 60' Still Inter press. Doesn’t look like it will be another 5-4 today but still an intriguing match.

    • 49' And now Cassano comes forward menacingly. He’s stopped on the edge of the box. Rossi wins a corner.
    • 48' Juan was the defender to make way for Chivu. Shot from Palacio blocked on the edge of the box. Bright start for Inter.

    • 12' Cassano again plays in Palacio but this time he’s flagged offside.

    • 2' Inter dominating the early possession as expected. Genoa employing a 4-1-4-1. Cassano tackled on the edge of the Genoa box.
    • 1' Referee Gervasoni blows the whistle to get us underway here. It’s a Spartan crowd and overcast, foggy conditions.
    • 11:25 Five minutes to kick off here. Today’s referee is Andrea Gervasoni. Check the Serie A standings here.
    • 11:20 On paper, this one looks an easy one for Inter. Genoa lie second to bottom and have failed to pick up a positive result against Inter the last six times the two teams have met, losing four Serie A games and two Coppa Italia clashes.
    • 11:15 Diego Milito will be one to watch today. He netted a hat-trick the last time the teams met at the San Siro in a 5-4 classic. Milito has scored eight goals this season including three from the penalty spot.
    • 11:10 TEAMS: Inter: Handanovic; Ranocchia, Samuel, Juan Jesus; Zanetti, Gargano, Cambiasso, Alvarez; Cassano, Palacio, Milito /// Genoa: Frey; Sampirisi, Granqvist, Canini, Antonelli; Tozser; Rossi, Kucka, Bertolacci, Vargas; Immobile.
    • 11:05 Second placed Inter head into the clash knowing that a win is vital to stay in touch with runaway leaders Juventus. They are ten points adrift but have a game in hand. Head coach Andrea Stramaccioni will be without key midfield duo Esteban Cambiasso and Freddy Guarin, with the former injured and the latter suspended.
    • 11:00 Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Serie A clash between Internazionale and Genoa from the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Kick off 11.30 GMT.
