Inter Milan moved seven points clear at the top of Serie A on Sunday as Romelu Lukaku scored after 32 seconds and bagged an assist in a 3-0 win over midtable Genoa.
The Belgian striker drove through the heart of the visiting defence and fired in his 18th league goal of the season to register his club’s second fastest Serie A strike since Opta started taking records in 2004.
Lukaku teed up Matteo Darmian for Inter’s second after 69 minutes and was again involved for their third, when his shot was saved but headed in on the rebound by substitute Alexis Sanchez.
The result leaves league leader Inter seven points ahead of second-placed AC Milan, which play AS Roma later on Sunday, and 10 points clear of Juventus in third.
Genoa, whose seven-match unbeaten league run came to an end, is 13th with 26 points.
