Genoa is welcoming Inter to Luigi Ferraris in round 36 in Italian Serie A.
Genoa is has won 3 of their last 4 games, and with that, they got themselves some breathing room in the relegation battle. Genoa is in 17th place with 36 points, 4 points above Lecce, and the relegation zone. Offensively, Genoa has been decent with 44 scored goals this season, while their defense wasn’t the worst, but still bad with 65 conceded goals. In their last 4 games, Genoa has scored 6 goals and conceded 5 goals. In their latest Serie A game against Sampdoria on the road, Genoa has had 48% of ball possession, solid 5 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, and 80% of the correct passes. With a goal in each half, Genoa has won this match 1-2, and with that, a precious 3 points in their battle at the bottom of the table. Pandev is Genoa’s top goalscorer with 9 goals, while Criscito added 8 goals. Radovanovic is injured, while Romero is still questionable. Lerager is suspended because of the yellow cards. Genoa has a tougher schedule than Lecce, but even if Genoa doesn’t win any of their last three games in Serie A, Lecce has to win at least 2 of theirs, and that is a reach. I think Genoa will stay in Serie A next season as well.
Inter has been inconsistent since the restart, and that is the main reason why they are not close to Juventus at the top. Inter is in 3rd place with 73 points, 74 scored goals, and 36 conceded goals. Overall, Inter is a good team, and there is nothing especially wrong with the team and most of their problems will go away as they play more games together and as they sing more players to intensify the competition in the roster. Lukaku has scored 21 goals for Inter so far this season, while Martinez added another 13 goals. Sanchez and Candreva both added 7 assists. Sensi and Vecino are both injured, while De Vrij is still questionable. Barella is suspended because of the yellow cards. In their latest Serie A game against Fiorentina at home, Inter was dominant with 61% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, and solid 87% of the correct passes. Inter had a lot of chances in this game, and regardless of Fiorentina’s solid defense, Inter should have won this game, but it ended in a 0-0 draw. Inter is in a decent form right now, and even though the title race in Serie A is probably over for them, Inter still has the chance to win a trophy, and that is the Europa League where they are one of the favorites.
Genoa has had some success against Inter at home, but Inter is the better team here, with more quality and more depth. After two draws in a row, I see Inter winning this match.
