Genoa finished 11th in the league table last season and this could have been better if they were able to get results on the road. They managed just 3 away wins all season and suffered loss in 12 defeats which put them fourth from bottom in terms of away record. However, they started the new season with a 3-1 win at home over Cagliari. They were trailing to a 66th minute strike from Marco Borriello until the 78th minute. But three quick strikes inside the next 10 minutes earned them a much needed win to the start the season on a high.

Crotone vs Genoa: Head-to-Head

  • Crotone managed just 1 win from the 8 meetings against Genoa so far. While there were 4 draws and the rest 3 were won by Genoa.
  • The teams share a win each and two draws in the four meetings at Crotone’s home ground.
  • Crotone have failed to score in three of the four home games against Genoa.
  • The current coach of Genoa, Ivan Juric was the head-coach of Crotone during their promotion winning 2015/16 season.

Crotone vs Genoa: Prediction

It is pretty evident that Davide Nicola is going to adopt a defensive set-up as Crotone’s priority will be to stay up in Serie A this season. They also failed to register a single shot on goal in the 1-0 defeat at Bologna last weekend.

While Genoa have a strong head-to-head record over Crotone and are coming on the back of a fine pre-season where they won each of their four friendly games. The away side could be backed to get off with a win here, despite being normally poor in away games.
