Genoa Prediction – Can Genoa halt poor results?

The home side bring a poor 8-match sequence without a win in the Italian top flight into this Sunday’s encounter against Sassuolo which has left Genoa bottom of the pile in Serie A and 4 points adrift of fourth from bottom club, Sampdoria, and safety.

Within this poor sequence of results, Genoa have suffered 5 defeats which have been losses to Juventus, Udinese, Torino, Sampdoria and Inter Milan and although they’ve picked up points in draws with Napoli, SPAL and Lecce, these have been outweighed by the defeats.

Genoa have managed just 2 wins throughout this season’s Serie A campaign to date which have both been recorded on home turf at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris amidst an overall record of 2-1-5 8/11 with wins over Fiorentina and Brescia, but they’ve subsequently lost their last 3 home games on the trot.

With just 2 wins out of their last 12 matches at home, Genoa look far from convincing at the moment and they could well struggle again this Sunday against Sassuolo.

Sassuolo Prediction – Can Sassuolo bounce back?

An encouraging and promising run of 4 matches without defeat for visitors Sassuolo came to an abrupt end last time out in Serie A as they were handed a 2-1 defeat at home by Napoli, but Sassuolo may not be too downhearted by this defeat as they’ve picked up some useful results of late on their travels.

An away record of 2-3-3 10/11 may not appear to be too impressive upon first glance but after losing their first 3 away matches on the trot this term, Sassuolo bring a useful and solid looking 5-match unbeaten run on the road into this clash.

Recent wins at Hellas Verona 1-0 and Brescia 2-0 have been either side of points picked up in draws at Lecce, Juventus and AC Milan, so Sassuolo are certainly no pushovers on their travels and they’ve also held the upper hand over Genoa in recent exchanges too.

Sassuolo have lost just 1 of their last 6 meetings against Genoa and they look to have the edge over their opponents ahead of this upcoming clash as well.


Key-Facts – Genoa vs Sassuolo

  • Genoa have won just 2 of their last 12 home matches in Serie A
  • Sassuolo are unbeaten in their last 5 away matches in Serie A
  • Sassuolo have lost just 1 of their last 6 meetings against Genoa


Betting Tips Verdict
