Inter Milan vs Genoa: Prediction
The Nerazzurri’s seven-game winning streak on the road came to a halt as they allowed Fiorentina to salvage a point two minutes into stoppage time.
Winless in three games across competitions, table-toppers from Milan will be looking to set things right against relegation-threatened Grifoni on Saturday and get back on winning ways. Antonio Conte’s men have won six of their last nine Serie A matches and scored 18 goals goals in the process.
Inter Milan have third-best home record in the league with five wins, two draws and one defeat at Giuseppe Meazza, averaging 1.63 goals scored per game and shipping 0.75 in return.
Genoa’s poor form continued as they they suffered a 0-1 defeat to Sampdoria in Derby della Lanterna. With 2 wins, 5 draws and 9 defeats, they’re now second-to-last, two points above rock-bottomed SPAL and four points off of currently-safe Udinese.
The Rossoblu’s have taken just three points from their last seven matches, and are winless since a 3-1 victory over Brescia on Thiago Motta’s debut.
il Grifoni have one of the worst away records in the league with four draw and four losses, netting 1.13 goals per bout, whilst conceding 2.50. 75 percent of their road games had over 2.5 goals.
Normally, I’d take Inter in -1.5 handicap against out-of-sorts Genoa side, but I have to choose something else as Nerazzurri are plagued with injuries and suspensions.
The hosts will field second-string midfield as Sensi, Barella and Brozovic are surely out, their backup Gagliardini are wing-back Asamoa are highly doubtful to make it and Lautaro Martinez (8 league goals) in out on yellow card accumulation.
The visitors will be without injured Zapata, Lerager and top goalscorer Chirstian Kouame (out for the season), whilst Pandev is suspended. Without Kouame and Pandev in the team, Genoa mustered only one shot on target vs Samp last week.
With a 1-0, 2-0 hunch, I’m picking Under 3 goals and Lukaku to score anytime.
