Genoa vs Fiorentina: Preview and Predictions

Genoa vs Fiorentina Predictions-Italian Serie A-6th May 2018

Genoa vs Fiorentina
2017/18 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 6 May 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Communale Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).

Genoa find themselves in 11th place and are looking good to avoid the drop. They are sitting 10 points clear of the drop zone and have really improved as of late. Fiorentina, meanwhile are in ninth place and haven’t given up hope of making a late push for a Europa League berth. They are just three points away from achieving this and notably pulled off a surprise 3-0 win over Napoli, and it would be an impressive achievement after what has been a very emotional season for the Viola after seeing their skipper Davide Astori tragically pass away in March.

Genoa’s solid showings – especially in defense – have helped them moved up the table. They will be also encouraged by playing at home, which seems to give them an added boost. That being said, Fiorentina will be highly encouraged at finally ending their frustrating streak by beating Napoli, which ended a three game winless streak for the Viola and will want to use that strong showing to further bolster their late run for a European football spot. Given they’re just a few points away from a top seven finish, it’s not out of reach just yet, but the Grifone could pose a stern test as they aim to catch up with AC Milan with just a few games remaining between now and the end of the season.

Still, Fiorentina have a great track record against Genoa, with just one loss in their last 16 meetings with the Grifone across all competitions. However, six of the last eight meetings between the two sides have ended as a draw – so could this ultimately end in the same vein this Sunday?

Genoa vs Fiorentina: Head to head

Fiorentina are undefeated in 15 of their last 16 matches against Genoa in all competitions

There have been under 2.5 goals scored in Fiorentina’s last 3 away games

Genoa vs Fiorentina: Prediction

Six of the last seven clashes between the two sides have seen less than 2.5 goals scored and there have been under 2.5 goals in Fiorentina’s last 3 away games.

The Viola are coming into this game having earned a solid 3-0 win over Napoli, which should certainly give them a huge boost of confidence ahead of this contest, so they should be able to at least pick up a point.

Playing Genoa at home, however isn’t going to be easy as the Grifone seem to always get an added boost here, so the Viola will have to be extra careful so as not to slip up in their pursuit of European football.

Genoa vs Fiorentina: Betting tips

  • Under 2.5 goals at 1.80
