Genoa vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 3 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova).
Both Genoa and Sassuolo brought their negative streaks to an end last weekend. I Rossoblu finally produced in the final third to see off Empoli 1-3 in an important away fixture on Monday evening.
Genoa previously scored one goal in last four league games and they desperately needed such high-quality attacking showing. It even counts for double if we know I Rossoblu lost their predator Krzysztof Piatek who made an AC Milan move this winter.
In the absence of one of league’s top scorer, goals came from Christian Kouame, Darko Lazovic and Antonio Sanabria. The former Real Betis forward thus bagged a goal on his Genoa debut. He will no doubts be a fantastic addition to this side.
Can the Paraguayan find the back of the net in his second appearance for I Rossoblu here?
Genoa vs Sassuolo: Head-to-head
Genoa have a chance to make it all square at five wins apiece in their H2H record against I Neroverdi.
I Rossoblu were more successful in H2H games at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris where they won three, drew one and lost one of five ties against Sassuolo.
These two likes produced a fantastic eight-goal thriller when they met each other for the first time in this term of Serie A.
Sassuolo claimed a 5-3 victory on the occasion at their MAPEI Stadium.
Genoa vs Sassuolo: Prediction
The visitors ended a horrible three-win streak two weeks ago when they held Inter to a goalless draw away at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. They previously shipped 11 goals in three defeats to Roma, Atalanta and Napoli.
Nevertheless, Roberto De Zerbi obviously did a great job on tightening his team’s defensive line as I Neroverdi backed up the draw to Inter with a confident 3-0 victory over Cagliari last Saturday.
Since both teams enjoyed strong attacking displays last weekend, we find BTTS as the way to go here. You can back goals at both ends at super attractive 1.90 odds.
