Genoa vs Napoli
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 8 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).
With AC Milan at their tail, Napoli will aim to make the best out of their visit to Genoa and will probably return home with all three points as the host is a relegation prone side in the league table.
Genoa vs Napoli Match preview
Genoa has won none of their recent four fixtures in the campaign lately. For their last six matches in the league, it has been seen that both teams have scored in each game.
Their previous encounter resulted in a 2-2 draw on the road against Udinese.
The host is on a three-game losing streak at home which won’t be a helpful factor when facing a top part team in the table and they are just two points away from slipping into the relegation zone.
Napoli is caught between AS Roma and AC Milan in the table for their chance in Europa League next season. They have lost only one of their last ten matches across all major competitions.
They will visit after a 2-1 win at home against AS Roma in their previous encounter.
The Blues were on a five-game winning streak on the road until the 2-0 loss against Atalanta in their last outing in the campaign.
Having lost only 4 of their 15 tours in the league until now this season, the visitors will not be worried about facing a relegated prone team with its worst run at home currently.
Genoa vs Napoli Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Blues are unbeaten in their last seven clashes.
- Two of their recent five fixtures have ended in a draw.
- Both teams have scored in three of the last five fixtures.
- Their previous encounter gave a 1-2 away win for the Blues.
Genoa vs Napoli Prediction
Genoa is taking some hard hits in the campaign lately, especially at home. It is not their best time to host a top part team like Napoli with only 8 games remaining in the league. The Blues have a better overall form and a strong position in their away fixtures, which gives them the edge in the encounter.
The away win in full-time with 1.57 odds will probably be the best bet for the punters. Since their reverse fixture, this season ended in a goalless draw, we cannot expect a high-scoring affair. The tip for under 3.5 goals with 1.40 odds will thus come in handy for the ninety minutes.
