Napoli vs Genoa
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio San Paolo, Napoli.
Can this finally be the year where Napoli contests the very top of Serie A and dethrone the Old Lady? Start of the new season has looked quite promising truth be told – Napoli defeated Parma on the road without a lot of troubles, and most importantly, demonstrated cohesion in the back line which was not the case last season.
Can they make it two in a row this Sunday at home turf against Genoa?
Visitors achieved the most convincing victory in the first round 4-1 vs Crotone, and currently occupying the first place on the table. It will be interesting to see if Griffins can hold the home team and maybe escape with a point or three.
Napoli vs Genoa Head-to-head
The last sixteen attempts to beat Napoli were unsuccessful for Genoa. All-time stats are heavily against them, having lost 19 games and winning only eight. Last season’s clashes ended 0-0 here at San Paolo and 2-1 in favour of Napoli in Genoa.
When it comes to goals statistic, it’s really hard to tell anything based on previous results – six out of last 12 games ended Over 2.5 FT, six of them ended Under 2.5 FT.
Napoli vs Genoa Prediction
Coach Gennaro Gattuso surely can be happy with how things started last week against Parma. Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens once again demonstrated high-class skills and scored one goal each in that match.
Even Hirving Lozano got a chance to finally prove why his transfer from PSV was super-expensive but without a luck. There are several rumours that Arkadiusz Milik is just one step away from moving to Roma AS, but nothing was confirmed yet officially.
The most notable acquisition is Victor Osimhen from Lille for gigantic 70 million EUR.
As mentioned above, Genoa’s strikers were on fire in the premiere match, scoring four goals against Crotone.
Still, the man of the match was Paolo Ghiglione with three assists. We don’t see this team avoiding defeat in Napoli, but there is a good chance they might score at least one goal.
