Frosinone vs Genoa
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 30 September 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Benito Stirpe (Frosinone).
After a strong start to the new season, Genoa seem to be well on their way. Although the Grifone were beaten 4-1 by Lazio recently they rebounded by beating bottom feeders Chievo 2-0. That has helped them seal a spot in the top half of the table and they will be looking to pick up another three points against strugglers Frosinone on Sunday.
The Canarini are in 19th spot, and are only propped up by Chievo. More concerning is the fact that they have yet to find the back of the net after their first six games, and in their second appearance in the top flight, it looks like relegation will be a certainty for Frosinone at the end of this campaign. They come into this game having lost 4-0 to Roma midweek, and despite making some notable signings, namely ex-Arsenal man Joel Campbell, it has not yet paid off.
Meanwhile, Genoa’s new signing Krzysztof Piątek continues to impress in his debut season in Serie A and as a result leads the league scoring charts. He is bound to slow down at some point as no one is actually expecting him to win the Capocannoniere, especially with stars like Mauro Icardi and Cristiano Ronaldo plying their trade in Serie A. But for now, he’s leading the way and enjoying his football. So far, he has plundered six goals for his team and has racked up over ten goals in all competitions.
Given Frosinone’s leaky defense, this will be a perfect chance for him to add more to his rapidly growing total, and given that the hosts have lost all but one of their last six games so far this season, Genoa should be able to pick up all three points with Piatek netting a goal or two.

Frosinone vs Genoa: Prediction
Frosinone lost in midweek and once again they did not manage to score. In all fairness, though, they’ve had to face Roma, Napoli, Sampdoria, Lazio and Atalanta – all teams who finished in the top half of the table. They now get a bit of a break as they take on Genoa, which could finally see them get a goal, but with Piatek in the form that he is in, it may not be enough to prevent the Grifone from coming out on top.
