Juventus vs Genoa
Date: Wednesday, 13 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Torino.
Even though their performance in the first half wasn’t on high level, Juventus have managed to beat Sassuolo last weekend and earn third victory in a row.
Beating AC Milan was surely the best way to start new year, but the main question is if Pirlo’s men can keep the form at this high level for a long time. They finally recovered in terms of standings and stayed in the Serie A title race.
This Wednesday Old Lady will have a different challenge, facing Genoa in Coppa Italia Round of 16. On paper, the task shouldn’t be hard considering the fact Griffins are just one position above the relegation zone. Home win is currently offered at low 1.25 rate.
Juventus vs Genoa Head-to-head
These two opponents have already met once in Serie A season 2020/21. It happened on 13th December at Luigi Ferraris where Juventus took 3-1 win, mostly thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo and his two goals.
All-time stats are going in favour of reigning champions, who have won 22 out of 34 games, while losing only four (never in Torino).
Genoa have scored at least one goal in four out of last five duels versus Juve.
Juventus vs Genoa Prediction
Genoa have finally recovered from awful start to the new campaign. Thanks to the seven points won in the last four domestic outings (victories versus Spezia and Bologna, draw vs Lazio) they are finally out of the relegation zone.
The main question is if coach Davide Ballardini is going to rest some of the key players for the weekend clash against Atalanta.
Mattia Destro has been in red-hot form lately, scoring four goals in the last five outings, but playing both Coppa Italia and Serie A might cause fitness issue.
Juventus have been struggling to keep their net intact throughout whole season. Even Sassuolo who had one man sent off managed to score against the Old Lady. Back line was successful in only one out of last seven attempts to keep a clean sheet. We see decent value in backing Juve to win the game and to concede at least one goal.
