Genoa vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 5 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).
Genoa host Roma in a very interesting Serie A fixture on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Comunale Lzigi Ferraris.
Both teams need spoils but for different causes.
The hosts have all but secured another elite tier campaign with a six-point cushion on Empoli in the red zone. Nevertheless, a defeat here and Empoli’s win over Fiorentina on the same day could complicate the situation down in the relegation scrap for Cesare Prandelli and his men.
Roma, on the other side, sit fifth in the league ladder with a one-point deficit to Atalanta in fourth place. La Lupa fancy their chances of jumping above La Dea with a three-pointer at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris given Atalanta have a tricky match against Lazio at Stadio Olimpico on schedule for the same day.
Genoa vs Roma: Head-to-head
Genoa have never been a tricky opposition to La Lupa.
The Romans won eight and drew one of past nine H2H clashes with Genoa.
Overall, Roma won 18, drew 2 and lost just 7 of 27 games against I Rossoblu.
Both teams were on the scoresheet in each of last four head to head affairs.
Genoa vs Roma: Prediction
The hosts were not pulling up any trees lately and will come into this low on confidence after a streak of four defeats and two draws in past six league affairs.
Prandelli’s troops scored only two goals along the way and we can expect them to struggle in the build-up play against the Champions League hopefuls on Sunday.
Roma look to have finally found the wanted rhythm. They won three and drew one of past four Serie A outings, having allowed just one goal in the process. La Lupa demolished Cagliari 3-0 last weekend at Stadio Olimpico.
Knowing about the head to head tradition as well as Roma’s huge motivation in the battle for the top-four finish, we have to go for the away win as one of the best betting picks of the entire day at the odds of 2.00.
