Inter grabbed a 3-1 victory away to Cagliari, meaning Genoa can no longer mathematically stay in Serie A.

The final relegation place, along with Genoa and Venezia, will be decided between Salernitana and Cagliari in the final round.

They also lifted the Coppa Italia trophy in 1937 and the Anglo-Italian Cup in 1996.
