Inter Milan coach Conte pleased with grinding win at Genoa

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was pleased with their 2-0 win at Genoa.

Romelu Lukaku and Danilo D'Ambrosio eventually secured the 2-0 victory at Marassi.

“We controlled the game from the start, at times you manage to break through earlier, sometimes you take a while," Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

“Against Borussia Monchengladbach, the statistics show we only allowed two shots on goal and one was a misplaced pass. We allowed zero shots on target today and kept a clean sheet.

“The team is aware of its strength and we used that today to play with confidence. When you concede three goals from three chances, it means the team has balance, there are just some errors.

“You talk about numbers, I have to make a more clear-headed analysis on the number of chances we actually allow and that's more important than the goals conceded."
