Genoa vs Juventus
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Luigi Ferraris Stadium, Genoa.
Juventus bagged exciting wins over Dynamo Kyiv (3-0), Torino (2-1), and Barcelona (0-3) in their last three outings and now travel to Genoa looking to keep it up. They’re still six points behind pace-setters AC Milan and will want to catch up with a fourth of the championship already behind, which promises a strong challenge at Luigi Ferraris Stadium.
Bianconeri have seen a busy schedule and only felt reinvigorated with Cristiano Ronaldo returning to the pitch. He’s been instrumental and we have seen them pick it up in the final third generally, as Andrea Pirlo seems in charge of the jigsaw for the first time since taking over.
Genoa have struggled to escape the relegation zone and while they could be happy with a point at Fiorentina, they conceded a last-gasp equalizer and will hardly be in a great mood after it. Rolando Maran’s men have struggled defensively and this has proven costly at this ground too – seeing three losses since early November despite finding the net on all of those occasions. Torino (1-2), Roma (1-3), and Parma (1-2) all snatched the points and they could be in for more of the same.
Genoa vs Juventus Head-to-head
- Juventus bagged six points in two games last term despite conceding on both of the occasions.
- Bianconeri suffered just one loss in the last eight head-to-head clashes.
- Genoa beat Juve (2-0) at this ground in March 2019 and have proven themselves a tough nut many times along the way.
Genoa vs Juventus Prediction
We will now back Juventus to their third win in a row against Genoa, hoping to see them in a good mood up front once again. Indeed, Genoa have been scoring goals on the regular and they could need just that if they’re to snatch the points, as we go for an Away win and a YES on Both teams to score at 3.10.
With goals on both ends, we’re also backing a high-scoring occasion which comes as more of a banker bet for those keeping faith we’ll see a winner. We’re going for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1.66 as possibly the safest approach to the fixture, with both sides’ records of recent taken into concern.
