Genoa vs Roma: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Genoa welcome Roma to Luigi Ferraris Stadium in the Serie A on Sunday, November 21. What to expect from this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Genoaare having a very poor start to the season. After 12 rounds, the Griffins sit just above the relegation zone with only 9 points, which is the same as Sampdoria in 18th place. In the last match, Genoa recorded a 2:2 draw with Empoli. The results didn't satisfy the club management, and Davide Ballardini was replaced by Andriy Shevchenko as head coach. Shevchenko will try to save the Griffins from relegation this season.
Roma aim to finish the season in the Top-4, but so far Jose Mourinho's team is on the 6th line in the standings. The Wolves are only three points behind the 4th Atalanta, so they still have a very good chance to achieve their goal. However, every now and then Roma make serious mistakes, like just before the international break, when they lost to Venezia (2:3) away.
This score was recorded in 2 of Roma's last 3 victories against Genoa.
This bet played in 8 of Roma's last 9 home games.
In the last 4 matches, Roma scored against Genoa in the first half.
Genoa are in terrible form, and they have been demonstrating poor quality football. It will take a while for the new manager to find the right strategy for the team, and we doubt that the Griffins will be able to take points from Roma. The visiting team has a big class advantage, and they are in dire need of points, so they will put extra effort in to collect three points in Genoa.
Our prediction - Roma to win
Genoa have serious problems on the defensive, as evidenced by the 24 goals conceded in 12 games. Roma with their powerful attack will clearly take advantage of the hosts' weakness. However, we doubt that they will keep a clean sheet: the Wolves concede in almost every game.
Second prediction - both to score
