Was untested throughout, his only involvement being to collect back-passes and re-distribute, or to pounce on a couple of loose balls.
Offered great width down Inter's right-hand side, providing several testing crosses over the 90 minutes. Arguably had Inter's best chance of the first half, flashing an effort wide of Perin's back post.
Offered plenty of energy down the left, exploiting the attacking nature of Vrsaljko. Netted the opening goal by turning home Jonathan's cross.
A pleasing debut from the Argentine, as he was not only defensively solid, but also provided a good outlet for Jonathan to return to when faced with no options down the right hand side.
Not the Brazilian's most convincing performance, losing several aerial duels and almost allowing Kucka to grab the opening goal from a Genoa set piece.
The Italian wasn't tested too often, but proved a physical match for the tenacious Gilardino. Forced a good save from Perin in the second half.
Didn't have the most productive game, as the Argentine struggled in the space behind Palacio. Gave the ball away on numerous occasions.
Excellent in the second half after a quiet first 45. His willingness to shoot from anywhere won Inter countless corners.
Had a few long range efforts, bursting from deep to contribute to Inter's attacks when required. He didn't give the ball away often, and looked one of the most likely players on the pitch to score.
Was given the captain's armband for the game, but didn't quite live up to expectations. Picked out only a couple of decent balls, but did little else.
- 8 R. Palacio
Made a couple of smart saves, as well as being alert to come off his line on several occasions to cut out crosses from the likes of Nagatomo and Jonathan.
Struggled against Jonathan and Guarin down Inter's right hand side, as the combined pace and power of the duo proved too much for the Italian to deal with.
Made key interceptions throughout the game, putting in a real captain's performance and denying Icardi and Palacio more than once.
A solid partner for Portanova, Manfredini made various blocks to deny Guarin and Kuzmanovic, aswell as being a useful aerial presence.
An excellent debut from the 21-year-old, offering width down the right and combining well with Cofie. The Croatian provided a couple of good crosses, without shirking defensive responsibility.
Had a few silky and noticeable touches, but lacked the cutting edge that Genoa desperately needed.
Was full of running, perhaps leaving his full-back a little exposed in the first half, but going forward his link-up play with Vrsaljko and Kucka was impressive.
Had a couple of chances to open the scoring for his side, beating Juan to a set piece header, but was otherwise only involved in fits and starts.
Sat deep and did what he could to orchestrate his side, but struggled against the tenacity of the Inter midfield in the second half.
Aside from one lovely piece of skill to beat Nagatomo in the first half, the Argentine struggled to impose himself on the match against the pace and power of Guarin in nidfield.
Battled well at the head of a team which didn't provide him with good service. The Italy international proved a handful for Ranocchia, but didn't even get to test Handanovic.
Was full of energy and running after his introduction, and perhaps should be been thrown into the fray a little earlier. A candidate to replace either Cambiasso or Kuzmanovic in the next game.
A great debut for the former Sampdoria forward, as he tested Perin within a minute of taking to the field. Unfortunate to strike the crossbar with a well-directed and powerful header.
