Inter Milan claim first home win since Roberto Mancini's return

Milan: Inter Milan gave coach Roberto Mancini his first home Serie A win since his return to the club in November when they beat fading Genoa 3-1 on Sunday.

Inter, stuck in an uncomfortable midtable position, took a 2-0 halftime lead through Argentine strikers Rodrigo Palacio and Mauro Icardi.

Palacio gave them an early breakthrough when he snapped up a rebound after Mattia Perin parried Icardi`s volley, then Icardi scored with a glancing header for his tenth league goal of the season.

Genoa, who have taken only one point from their last five games since reaching a dizzying third place, pulled one back through Armando Izzo in the 85th minute.

However, former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic wrapped up the win when he headed Inter`s third from a corner three minutes later, the Serb`s first goal since joining the club at the start of the season.
