Genoa coach Gian Piero Gasperini hailed the players' spirit for their 1-0 win over Inter Milan.

It was the first time Inter had lost at Genoa in 20 years, with Luca Antonelli netting the only goal of the game.

"It was a good game in tough conditions, as there was so much water. Inter are a physical side, but Genoa really did well and played with intensity today and this victory means a lot to us," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"Without doubt the stadium and these fans help the team and give us something more, especially when we play with this hunger.

"I think at the end of the day we were on a par with Inter throughout and had our good chances to score, as did they. As the conditions got worse, we both had to sort of throw the ball into the box and hope for the best.

"I believe our desire to win was decisive and Fetfatzidis had a great game, constantly running at the Inter defenders."
