Italian champions Inter Milan have moved up to second spot in Serie A with a 1-0 victory over Genoa.

Sulley Muntari scored his first goal in a year to give Inter the win in Genoa on Friday.

Muntari has found games difficult to come by this season under new boss Rafa Benitez.

However, after coming on for the injured Esteban Cambiasso, the Ghana midfielder struck a shot from 25-metres that managed to beat Eduardo, the Genoa goalkeeper.

Both Inter and Genoa had further chances to score but neither could muscle the ball into the back of the net.

"It's a very important victory," Davide Santon, Inter's left back told local media.

"We suffered because of their intensity, it was tough."

Inter are now a point behind first place Lazio. The leaders are to play Palermo away from home on Sunday.

Inter's city rivals AC Milan are in third position and will play Turin giants Juventus, who are in fifth place, on Saturday.
