Roma Prediction – Can Roma open their account on home turf?

After producing an impressive and encouraging pre-season, Roma will head into this season opener of the Italian top flight against Genoa in confident mood as they look to emulate last season’s 6th place finish in Serie A.

Roma’s pre-season preparations produced 4 wins out of their 5 matches played with wins gained over Perugia, Lille, Real Madrid (on penalties) and Arezzo, while drawing with Athletic Bilbao in a 2-2 draw.

These 5 warm-up matches also saw Roma score a total of 13 goals, so the hosts will be in confident mood that they can grab the all-important 3 points in this first home match of the new season, particularly as they finished last season in strong fashion on home turf at Stadio Olimpico.

The hosts registered 4 wins on the trot at the end of last season’s Serie A campaign with wins against Udinese, Cagliari, Juventus and Parma, which included 3 clean sheets.

Perhaps more importantly though, Roma hold an impressive and long-standing upper hand over Genoa in previous encounters as they’ve won the last 13 home matches on the trot against Sunday’s visitors, Genoa.

Genoa Prediction – Can Genoa break Roma stranglehold?

After having narrowly avoided relegation at the end of last season’s Serie A, Genoa look to have their work cut out if they’re to get anything out this Sunday evening trip to face an in-form Roma outfit, as the visitors look to improve upon last term’s poor results away from home.

Genoa finished last season fourth from bottom in the Italian top flight and level points with third from bottom club Empoli who were relegated due to possessing an inferior goal difference by the narrowest of margins of a single goal.

A poor away record of 2-6-11 18/35 means that Genoa must make a better fist of things on their travels in this season’s campaign, but this may be easier said than done as they possess a poor record against Sunday’s hosts, Roma.

Genoa finished last term without an away win from their final 9 matches of the season which included 4 defeats at Parma, Udinese, Sampdoria and Atalanta, while overall, Genoa kept just 2 clean sheets but failed to score themselves in 7 of their 19 matches on the road.


Key-Facts – Roma v Genoa

  • Roma have won their last 4 home matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Genoa finished last season without an away win from their last 9 trips
  • Roma have won the last 13 meetings at home on the trot against Genoa


Betting Tips Verdict

Roma have history on their side and this winning trend against Genoa should continue on Sunday at their Stadio Olimpico.
