MILAN - Inter have beaten Catania 2-0 thanks to goals from Antonio Cassano and Rodrigo Palacio at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
The home side were solid in the first period and the excellent Cassano opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark, Cambiasso curling in a beautiful cross which saw Fant'Antonio sneak in round the back to head home and claim his fifth league goal of the season.
The Nerazzurri took the sting out of the contest after the break but, despite numerous chances, only secured the three points at the death. Palacio scored an absolute peach as he expertly controlled Milito's cross before drilling a left-foot volley past Andujar. That sealed the win for Inter and they move onto 18 points in the league.
