The decision was made between Genoa city officials and the football league, which has not yet announced a new date for the match.

The game at Luigi Ferraris stadium was slated as the lunchtime fixture at 12:30 p.m. (1130 GMT) local time.

The Marassi area around the stadium has been among the hardest hit zones of the city by the raging water, which has uprooted trees and swept cars and furniture through the streets.

With Inter Milan hovering just one point above the relegation zone, the 2010 champion could drop into the bottom three by its next match.
