SPAL vs Genoa
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 28 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).
SPAL made a huge step toward securing another top flight thanks to a fabulous streak of five wins in last six league outings. They climbed up to 13th place in the league ladder and are now nine points above the relegation area.
The head coach Leonardo Semplici has reasons to be thrilled with his men’s attacking performances as Spallini found goals super easy to come lately.
The hosts bagged six goals in last two wins over Juventus and Empoli. Andrea Petagna took his league tally to 14 when he completed a brace eight days ago away at Empoli. He should have plenty of space to deliver past the vulnerable defensive line of Genoa’s too when teams take on each other on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Paolo Mazza.
SPAL vs Genoa: Head-to-head
Genoa have never defeated SPAL.
This will only be the fourth head to head clash between the two sides.
SPAL won their maiden H2H meeting in October 2017, while last two encounters ended in 1-1 draws.
SPAL vs Genoa: Prediction
Genoa go into this in completely opposite mood to the one of SPAL’s. The visitors took just one point in past five league outings. They scored only one goal in the process. The latest of failures came eight days ago when Torino celebrated a 0-1 victory at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
The aforementioned streak caused drop to 15th place in the league ladder. I Rossoblu are now only five points above the danger area and they desperately need to start a winning thread.
To make things worse for Cesare Prandelli, his men boast a desperate record on travels. Genoa won only 2, drew 4 and lost 10 of 16 league games away from home.
Knowing SPAL won five of past six league outings, including ties against the likes of Roma and Juventus, we have to go for the home win at the odds of 2.50.
