Genoa is hosting Inter at Luigi Ferraris in round 5 in the Italian Serie A.
Genoa has played only 3 games so far this season, and they have 1 win, 1 loss, and 1 draw. With 4 points, 4 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals, Genoa is in 11th place in the Serie A standings. In their latest Serie A game against Hellas Verona on the road, Genoa was the weaker team with 42% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and only 69% of accurate passes. There were a few good chances in this game, but neither of the teams was able to score a goal, and the final result was 0-0. Zappacosta, Destro, Pjaca, and Pandev have each scored 1 goal for Genoa so far this season, while Ghiglione has added 2 assists. Sturaro is injured, Males is in quarantine, while Bani is still questionable for this game. Genoa has had a lot of Covid-19 positive players, and they almost hadn’t had enough players to play a couple of games, but that is behind them now, and Genoa can finally focus on soccer. Genoa is a decent team, and they have some great players, and I believe Genoa won’t have a problem securing their Serie A spot.
Inter is in a bit of a slump at the moment, and they haven’t won any of their last 3 games, 2 in Serie A, and 1 in the Champions League. Inter was hosting Borussia M’gladbach in their Champions League game, and it was a treat. Inter was winning 1-0, then they were losing 1-2, but they were able to tie the score in the 90th minute of the game. The final score of this match was 2-2. In their latest match in Serie A against Milan, Inter has had 55% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 82% of the correct passes. Inter was solid in this game, but their defense is not doing well at the moment. Inter has lost this match 1-2. With 7 points, 11 scored goals, and 8 conceded goals, Inter is in 6th place in the Serie A standings. Vecino is still injured, while Young, Skrinar, Gagliardini, Radu, and Hakimi are all still in quarantine because of the Coronavirus. Inter is still a fantastic team, and they have plenty of firepowers, but it seems that Inter is really missing their quarantined players, and that has impacted their games as of late. The biggest problem for Inter at the moment is their dense schedule because they are playing in the Champions League next week as well, and with all the missing players, that could be a huge problem for Inter.
There is no doubt that Inter is the better team here, but they lack depth because of the injuries. Under normal circumstances, I would pick Inter without hesitation, but considering their schedule, I’m not so sure about that. I will take the goals here.
