Roma are chasing Juventus for the Serie A title a tough trip to Genoa on Sunday after being dumped out of the Champions League midweek can Roma pick themselves back up here? Talisman Francesco Totti, along with De Rossi, Ljajic and Gervinho will be hoping to provide Roma's fans with something to celebrate after a tough week. Roma have struggled away from home recently losing two of their last five although those were to Napoli and Juventus. This is going to be a tough test for Roma as Genoa have come into some form and are very tough to beat especially at home.
Genoa have beaten Juventus and Milan in two of their last four home games and are unbeaten in their last nine games overall. Genoa have gone from bottom half just above the relegation zone to fourth in the table. This is based on a solid defence Genoa have only conceded seven goals in their last nine games and the two wins over Milan and Juve were 1-0 wins. Matri is top scorer for the side with six goals , Gasperini will look to the ex Milan man to keep leading the line alongside Iago and Perotti.
This one is a good match up, Genoa have played very tough at home and will be looking to get a result against another top team here in Roma. Roma come into the game off the back of a loss to Man City in the Champions League, that was a tough loss for the Romans and they will be looking to get over it by beating Genoa here. I think this one is a coinflip and i am going to take the home underdog here on the handicap. I cant help but feel that Roma will have a little bit of a european hangover and coule end up even losing this one straight up. Either way Genoa are very good at home and getting them at evens with a head start seems the smart play.
