Genoa – Juventus Predictions and Preview
- A 1-0 defeat to Monza in their last Serie A (SA) match was a third loss in four competitive matches for Genoa, who currently sit precariously close to the relegation zone. That is because Alberto Gilardino’s men have won only twice across their last nine SA outings (D2, L5), with their frustrated coach admitting after Sunday’s loss that his side are paying for “little mistakes”.
- But there appears to be more than mistakes plaguing their season, and their inability to deal with substitutes is certainly one of them as five of their last six goals conceded were scored by substitutes. Considering Genoa have conceded ten such goals this term – comfortably the most of the SA season – it perhaps then comes as no surprise then that their nine goals conceded beyond the 76th minute is a joint-league high, hinting at possible problems as this game grows old.
- After beating Napoli in SA last week with their fifth 1-0 victory of the season, Juventus temporarily moved to the top of the table. With this a third consecutive Friday outing, Massimiliano Allegri’s side once again have the chance to pile the pressure on their rivals as they play first in this round, and with their gap over the third-placed Milan already increasing to seven points, Juventus currently remain the only side able to keep up with Inter.
- Their ambitions were underlined by returning captain Danilo, who declared that Juventus “have a dream” of winning the Scudetto, and a fourth consecutive away victory certainly won’t hurt that goal. Their success this term can largely be attributed to their backline which has already kept nine clean sheets, and they could have a decisive say in this once again as four of the Bianconeri’s last six goals have been scored by defenders.
- Players to watch: Returning after a yellow card ban, Ruslan Malinovskyi has netted in consecutive matches for Genoa between the 35th minute and half-time. Tending to strike a little bit later, each of Federico Gatti’s three SA goals this term have arrived after the break.
- Hot streak: Juventus have failed to keep a clean sheet in six consecutive H2Hs away to Genoa.
