Genoa vs Verona
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, Genova.
Genoa and Verona will meet each other in a low-profile mid-table Serie A clash on Saturday evening at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. At this point, it seems that neither of the two teams have anywhere to go by the end of the season.
Both the battle for the European positions and the relegation scrap are far away for each outfit. Nevertheless, it does not have to mean that we will be in for a boring evening of football in Genova.
The hosts have been in a great shape lately, winning three and drawing one of the last four league outings. They won four and drew two of the last six Serie A affairs conceding no more than one goal along the way.
The head coach Davide Ballardini can be thrilled about his troops’ latest defensive efforts. Moreover, I Rossoblu have won three on the spin on the home court in Serie A.
Genoa vs Verona Head-to-head
- Genoa have a fantastic home record in head to head clashes against I Gialloblu as well.
- I Rossoblu won 8, drew 3, and lost just 1 of 12 home matches against Verona.
- The two sides shared spoils in a goalless draw in the first part of the season.
Genoa vs Verona Prediction
Hellas Verona have been playing hot and cold since the beginning of the season. They have lost and won two apiece of the last four league games. Nevertheless, it seems that Ivan Juric’s team have been struggling for results on the road recently.
The Gialloblu lost three on the bounce away from home scoring just one goal in the process. It is not the kind of form you want to have going into the clash with the team you had beaten just once in 12 away matches beforehand.
Verona did beat Parma 2-1 at home last weekend, but we have plenty of reasons to back Genoa to come on top here. The value is great with the 2.75 odds offered for the home win.
Since the Rossoblu conceded just one goal in the last six league matches, we will back them to keep a clean sheet at the 3.25 odds as well.
