Napoli vs Genoa Prediction & Match Preview

Napoli vs Genoa
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples).

With eight more rounds to go, Napoli enjoys a seven-point lead at the second spot in the table and has a 15-point buffer as far as their Champions League qualification is concerned. They also remain the lone challenger to Juventus for the Scudetto. It may be a losing battle, but Napoli has decided to give it all they can till the end.

Genoa sure does sit in the mid-table, but they are just six points away from the relegation fight. In recent weeks, they have been one of the worst away teams in Serie A and considering they are going against Napoli this Sunday, the squad doesn’t hold much hope.

Napoli vs Genoa Prediction

Napoli is clearly the best team in Italy, bar Juventus. They are comfortably placed in the second spot and has almost locked down their Champions League qualification. They are one of the best teams at home, and the whole season, they have lost just once in front of the home crowd. The game was against Juventus. That gives Napoli a run of 17 wins from the last 22 home ties, and 21 unbeaten matches from 22 attempts.

Meanwhile, Genoa was winless in 18 of their last 21 games on the road, and one of the wins was against a relegation-battler, and another one was friendly. H2h games show that Napoli has been the dominant force for quite long. They won the last four h2h ties, recorded 13 of the last 14 wins, and won seven of the last eight ties at this venue.

Importantly, Genoa failed to score in five of their last six match-ups, whereas Napoli netted goals in 20 of their last 22 home fixtures. Expect the hosts to cruise to a victory this Sunday.
