Genoa is welcoming Fiorentina to Luigi Ferraris in round 4 of the Italian Serie A. Genoa hasn’t been playing well at the start of the season, but they finally got their first win last weekend. Fiorentina has been doing fairly well so far this season, and they have won 2 of their 3 games in Serie A.

As I’ve mentioned, Genoa was struggling, they have conceded 8 goals in 3 games while scoring 4 goals. In their last game against Cagliari, Genoa was decent with 48% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 84% of the correct passes. Genoa was bad for the majority of the game, and they were losing 2-0 in the 56th minute, but that was when Genoa woke up. With 3 unanswered goals in the last 30 minutes of the game, Genoa has turned this completely around, and they ended up winning this match 2-3. Genoa hasn’t scored a lot so far, but Fares is their leading goalscorer with 2 goals. Caicedo and Badelj are both injured for Genoa. It’s going to be a long and hard season for Genoa, but hopefully, they can secure their Serie A status a bit sooner.

Surprisingly, Fiorentina has been doing well so far this season, and they have scored and conceded 5 goals. Fiorentina has won 2 of their first 3 games, and they are now in 9th place. Fiorentina was playing against Atalanta in their last game, and they have had 45% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 83% of the correct passes. We saw 3 goals in this game, but all 3 were from penalty shots. Fiorentina was defending well in this game, and they have won this match 1-2. There was a lot of interest in Vlahovic in the offseason, and he has started this season well, with 3 goals in 3 games. Venuti is the only one injured for Fiorentina at the moment. Fiorentina usually starts the season well, but as the season goes on, Fiorentina starts sinking, and I’m afraid that might happen to them this season as well. At the moment, Fiorentina is doing well, they are playing well on the defensive end, and I think they will have a good game.

When playing at home, Genoa hasn’t lost to Fiorentina in their last 3 games. Genoa has been decent so far, but so was Fiorentina. I think this will be a game where we won’t see a lot of defenses, and for that reason, I will take the goals.
