Inter Milan will welcome Genoa to San Siro on Sunday for a matchday 24 fixture in Serie A.

The hosts currently set the pace for others to follow and have a four-point advantage at the summit of the table. Genoa are fairly comfortable in mid-table, having garnered 26 points from 23 games to sit in 11th spot.

Inter Milan would have been buoyed by their impressive 3-0 win over AC Milan in a top-of-the-table Derby della Madonnina last week.

Romelu Lukaku and strike partner Lautaro Martinez were unplayable as they put the Rossoneri to the sword.

Genoa played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Hellas Verona, as a last-gasp strike by Milan Badelj helped Genoa snatch a point on home soil.


Inter Milan vs Genoa Head-to-Head

The two sides have met on 30 occasions in the past, with Inter Milan having a significantly better head-to-head record.

The Nerazurri were victorious on 20 previous occasions, scoring 62 goals and conceding just 22. Genoa have five wins to their name, while five games ended in stalemates.

Their most recent fixture came on 24 October when second-half goals from Lukaku and Danilo D'Ambrosio helped Inter to a comfortable 2-0 away victory.

Inter Milan are by far the form team in Serie A, with their shock loss to Sampdoria on 6 January representing their only defeat in their last 17 league games.

Genoa have also impressed in recent weeks and are currently on a seven-game unbeaten run in Serie A.
