Genoa host Inter Milan in the second Serie A game on Saturday night, Genoa are on fire recently and have won four in a row at home. There is no doubt that Genoa are looking like a team that could get European football and with only two points seperating Genoa from the Europa places with two games to go I think this is a real possibility. Genoa have won six of their last eight and are the form team in Serie A right now with Falcue firing on all cylinders with seven goals in his last eight appearances. Genoa's success under Gasperini has been a surprise but with a solid squad Genoa are one of the cinderella stories of Serie A this season and a win here against Inter Milan would just underline the success of their season.
Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini disappointed at his team's second half capitulation last week to Juventus I am sure he will be eager to get his side back on track with a win here against Genoa. Icardi has been sensational this season and with Tevez unlikely to play again this season for Juventus the young Argentine has a chance to win the top scorer award in Italy as he is currently just one goal behind tevez in the scoring charts. Inter have been up and down this season but with a squad of superstars they have the talent to beat anyone on their day. Podolski, Icardi, Shaqiri and Guarin have lots of talent but Inter have been unable to turn that talent into enough points to qualify for Europe. This was a salvations season for Mancini as he came in when Inter were really struggling and he turned things around and brought them back up the table.
This one should be a cracking game of football. Genoa have been really excellent of late and I am not sure why they are underdogs at home. I cant ignore the price and the form and I am going to take Genoa to get the win here at a huge price. One of my favourite bets of the weekend will be Genoa +1 on the handicap, but the value on the straight up Genoa win cant be passed up either.
