Milan: Inter Milan routed hapless Sassuolo 7-0 for the second season in a row on Sunday with Argentine striker Mauro Icardi grabbing a hat-trick and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo scoring twice.

Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi was sent off and Mateo Kovacic and Fredy Guarin also scored in an embarrassingly one-sided game at the San Siro exactly a year after Inter`s win by the same score in an away match.

Rafael Benitez`s problems at Napoli mounted as they lost 1-0 at home to modest Chievo after Gonzalo Higuain missed a first-half penalty and Maxi Lopez struck early in the second half for the visitors.

Sampdoria beat Torino 2-0, Lazio brushed aside promoted Cesena 3-0 and Fiorentina were held to a goalless draw at home by Genoa in other matches.
