Genoa vs Chievo
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Wednesday 26 September 2018
Kick-Off: 20:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).
Genoa will look to recover after a heavy 4-1 loss last round as they take on bottom-placed Chievo on Wednesday evening. Can the Grifone rebound and take advantage of Chievo’s bad form?
The Flying Donkeys are bottom of the table as a result of a three point deduction, which was quite lenient considering how they cooked their books in order to avoid relegation from the top flight. They come into this game having lost to Udinese and did manage a draw against Roma, but the Lupi have not been in good form since the start of the season.
Genoa have earned six points from their first for games and both wins were at home against teams like Empoli and Bologna – two teams who are also struggling so far this term.
Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek will be hoping to continue his great goal-scoring form so far this term. The new signing leads the Serie A scoring charts with five goals, including one in Genoa’s recent 4-1 loss to Lazio and will look to extend his lead over the chasing pack. Things are going well for him at the moment and this will be a great chance for him to grab a goal – or possibly more – in order to help Genoa rebound.
Genoa vs Chievo: Head-to-head statistics

Genoa vs Chievo: Prediction
Genoa come into this game having lost, but they should be able to rebound against a Chievo side who have failed to win 16 of their last 17 away games and were quite fortunate to grab a point against an out-of-sorts Roma side.
