Inter opened a four-point gap between themselves and rivals Milan at the top of the standings with a 3-0 win in the Derby della Madonnina last weekend.
Victory established Inter as the new Scudetto favourites and with matches against Genoa and Parma to follow over the next two weeks, the Nerazzurri have a real chance to increase their lead at the summit. 
"Psychologically, I dread these two games [against Genoa and Parma], that's where we'll have to show that we have passed a milestone," said Inter head coach Antonio Conte. 

"These two games will say a lot about what we can do."
Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaka are in terrific form and have scored a healthy chunk of the club's goals this season. Inter's mark of 57 goals after 23 matches is the most they have registered at this stage of a season since 1951. 
"This is, without doubt, the hungriest Inter Milan I've ever played for," goalkeeper Samir Handanovic told Inter TV.

"We had all week to prepare and we put it in on the pitch – we knew what we had to do to win the match."

Grifone, though, will be no pushovers and head to Milan on a seven-game unbeaten run following a 2-2 draw at home to Hellas Verona. The result moved them up to 11th and four points behind local rivals Sampdoria.

Goals from Lukaku and Danilo D'Ambrosio led Inter to a 2-0 win over Genoa at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris earlier this season.
