LONDON - Goals in each half from Obafemi Martins and Giorgos Karagounis gave Inter a comfortable 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Wednesday.

In the 19th minute Nigerian striker Martins raced on to Stankovic's headed assist from Julio Cesar's long goal kick then twisted past Fray and Hall before stabbing home a low shot past Kiraly from a tight angle.

Karagounis increased Inter's lead 22 minutes into the second half. The Greek midfielder received square from Pizarro, sidestepped Freedman as he advanced to the edge of the box then let loose a shot that found the top right corner.
