Leonardo's 100 per cent record as Inter Milan coach continued with their Coppa Italia victory over Genoa.

New boss Leonardo had overseen back-to-back league wins against Napoli and Catania and he got the perfect start again tonight as Samuel Eto'o's brace put his side 2-0 up by half-time.

Houssine Kharja pulled one back eight minutes after the restart from the spot, but McDonald Mariga re-established the two-goal cushion six minutes later, rendering Giuseppe Sculli's 90th-minute strike academic.

In the day's other last-16 clash, Fabrizio Miccoli's 80th-minute penalty gave Palermo a 1-0 win over Chievo.
