PRIMAVERA: INTER 3-0 ALBINOLEFFE

N'ze, Siligardi, Destro (pen) wrap up victory. Toldo between sticks for 90 minutes

MILAN - Inter stay clear at the top of Campionato Primavera Division B thanks to a 3-0 home victory over Albinoleffe, the team they knocked out of the Tim Cup last month.

January signing Kouassi Desmond N'Ze opening the scoring early on with his second goal in as many games for Inter's Under-19s.

Luca Siligardi added a second shortly after the interval, with Allievi Nazionali striker Mattia Destro completing the scoring from the penalty spot in overtime.

The victory keeps table toppers Inter clear of Chievo with a game in hand against Fiorentina still to play.

Francesco Toldo played the whole match at the Centro Sportivo Giacinto Facchetti to mark his return to action after last October's metatarsal injury.

The Nerazzurri were a goal to the good after just ten minutes, Ghanaian defender N'ze controlling Calidrola's left-wing centre before sidefooting past Albinoleffe keeper Nodari.

Siligardi doubled Inter's lead seven minutes into the second half. The striker, who made his first team debut in the midweek cup win over Reggina, combined with Aiman Napoli and beat Nodari with a low shot to make it five goals in nine games.

Destro, on for Gianluca Litteri in the second half, had a goal disallowed for offside on 62 minutes, but the sixteen-year-old celebrated his Primavera debut with Inter's third in injury time, slotting home from the penalty spot after being fouled in the box.
