Caught out of place once in the first-half and unlucky not to be punished. Could do little about Palacio's goal at the start or Boselli's at the end.
Played more like winger, getting forward every opportunity he could, provided a pinpoint assist for Pazzini's strike. Also left Boselli open for a late header to make it 5-2, but by then the match was over.
A mixed match from the Romanian, as he was caught too far up field as Genoa bagged the opener.
The story that is Javier Zanetti showed no signs of ending. Always able to take control and dribble his way out of trouble, the captain's work rate in midfield was crucial to the three points.
A good effort from the centre-back taking on his former side. Strong in the middle, with only a couple of errors sneaking in. Seems to have become a settled partner for Lucio since arriving in January.
The Brazilian centre-back was his usual dominant self, cutting out attack after attack when Genoa were still in the game in the first-half and always looking to spark a counter attack.
Playing as the deep-lying midfielder, the 28-year-old did a decent job of pulling the strings in the second-half after struggling in the opening 45 minutes.
Signs that he is getting back to his best. The Dutchman played a stray pass here and there, but put in some sublime touches and linked up well with Eto'o. Provided the assist for Pandev's tap-in and tested Eduardo with a long-range missile.
The veteran could not stamp his authority on the match in the first-half was was unsurprisingly replaced at half-time.
The winter signing bagged Inter's equaliser, but otherwise wasn't involved in the play very much and showed his frustration at times by pleading with the officials for fouls in his favour.
When he's in this kind of form, Eto'o simply cannot be stopped. Scored two, and involved in two more: he constantly beat his markers tonight and was a constant threat.
A compelte howler allowed Eto'o to gave the hosts the lead. He could have reacted quicker on goals from Pazzini and Pandev as well. The Portuguese shot-stopper's nightmare season continues.
Played a wonderful ball that left Inter's defence for dead for Palacio's opener and was his side's best midfielder. Made way on 75 minutes after running his socks off.
Played everyone onside for Inter's fourth, allowing Pandev past for an easy tap-in.
Marked Pazzini quite well for the most part, though his lack of pace was evident on a couple occasions. Made way late on due to a minor injury.
Tried his best against Eto'o and had some success against the African star in the first-half. Wasn't able to keep it up in the final 45 minutes though.
Practically invisible. The former Schalke player did nothing positive and went unnoticed on both sides on the pitch.
Made some nice runs forward in the opening exchanges, opening up Inter's defence once or twice before fading into the background like several of his team-mates. Showed some promising sings though that he can be a key player for the Grifoni.
The captain once again worked hard and put in several hard but fair and effective challenges in the first-half. Overrun after the interval.
His error led to the match being put beyond doubt as Eto'o pick-pocketed him in the corner before waltzing into the area to score Inter's third.
The offensive inspiration for his side, as he scored their first and assisted their second. Unfortunately, his efforts were all in vain.
Missed a sitter with the goal at his mercy in the first-half and also scored a goal that was ruled out for offside. Other than that, Lucio and Ranocchia had his number this afternoon.
- 12 L. Castellazzi
The Japanese left-back came off the bench and scored his first goal for the Nerazzurri with an exquisite finish.
- 23 M. Materazzi
Another substitute who had a positive impact, setting up Nagatomo's strike.
- 29 Philippe Coutinho
- 17 M. Mariga
A game changer. With Inter trailing he came off the bench and put in his best performance in months. His determination was clear to see as he pierced the opponents' defence several times and grabbed a deserved goal.
