ROME, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Playing at home for the first time since a match marred by racist chants, Cagliari beat Genoa 3-1 in Italian Serie A on Friday.

Giovanni Simeone's textbook winner and a Joao Pedro late effort helped Cagliari beat visiting Genoa, who scored an own goal.

The son of Atletico Madrid's coach Diego Simeone connected with a cross from Artur Ionita one minute into the second half.

Christian Kouame moved on three goals this season when he levelled with a clinical drive in the 83rd, but Zapata deflected into his own goal two minutes later and Joao Pedro struck for 3-1 on a counter-attack in 87th minute.

The Sardinia side moved on to six points as Genoa stayed on four.
