Genoa is hosting Milan at Luigi Ferraris in round 12 in the Italian Serie A.
Genoa is not having a good time this season, and they have won only 1 of their last 8 games, while not winning any of their last 3 games. With only 6 points, 10 scored goals, and 22 conceded goals in 11 games, Genoa is in 19th place, which is in the relegation zone, but the season is long, and Genoa could still avoid relegation. In their last Serie A game, Genoa was hosting Juventus, and they have had only 29% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and only 68% of the correct passes. Genoa was defending well in the first half, but they conceded 3 goals in the second half, and they ended up losing this match 1-3. Pjaca is the leading goalscorer for Genoa with 3 goals, while Scamacca added 2 goals. Ghiglione added 2 assists. The injury list for Genoa is long, and Zappacosta, Cassata, Criscito, Biraschi, Parigini, Zapata, Marchetti, and Badelj are all on that list. Genoa has some great players, but they are just a bad team, and they are a serious contender for relegation.
Milan is still going strong, and they are still undefeated in Serie A. with 27 points, 25 scored goals, and 11 conceded goals, Milan is at the top of the Serie A table. In the first round of the knockouts in the Europa League, Milan will be facing Crvena Zvezda, and I think they will get through that stage easily. In their latest Serie A game, Milan was hosting Parma, and they have had 65% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 13 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Milan was losing -2 in the 56th minute, but they scored a goal just two minutes later. Milan also has a canceled goal in this game, but they were able to tie the score in the 91st minute of the game. The final score of this match was 2-2. Milan was still without Ibrahimovic in this match, but different players are stepping up to fill his shoes. Ibrahimovic has scored 10 goals for Milan so far, while Kessie added 4 goals. Leao has added 4 assists. Benancer and Gabbia are both injured, while Ibrahimovic, Kjaer, and Saelemaekers are still questionable. I love Milan, and I think they could win Serie A, and possibly the Europa League as well.
Milan has won all 5 of their games on the road so far this season, while Genoa is on a 4-game losing streak at home. Even without Ibrahimovic, Milan is a much better team here, and I see them getting back on the winning track in this game, and staying at the top of the table in Serie A.
