Juventus is welcoming Genoa to Allianz Stadium in round 16 of the Italian Serie A. Juventus has won their last game, but the situation in the club is not great, and there are a lot of troubles coming their way. Genoa has only 1 win so far this season, they are scoring a solid number of goals, but their defense is keeping them down.

Juventus is not having a good season, and if we add all of their legal troubles coming their way, it’s not looking well for Juventus. in their last game in Serie A, Juventus was playing against Salernitana on the road, and they were the better team with 74% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a high 93% of the correct passes. It’s not like Salernitana is a good team, but it was still a nice performance by Juventus. The final score was 0-2 in favor of Juventus. with 24 points, 20 scored goals, and 16 conceded goals, Juventus is now in 7th place in the standings. Dybala has scored 4 goals and added 3 assists for Juventus this season. De Sciglio, Danilo, Ramsey, and Chiesa are all injured. Juventus is not doing well, and I don’t think they will improve this season, but if they can get to the Champions League spot, it will be a huge success for them.

Genoa has lost only 2 of their last 6 games, but they haven’t won any of their last 12 games. Genoa is now in 18th place with only 10 points, they have scored 17 points, but they have conceded 29 goals in 15 games. Mattia Destro is the leading goalscorer for Genoa with 6 goals, while Criscito added 5 goals. Rovella has added 3 assists. There are quite a few injuries in Genoa right now, but the biggest one is Criscito, and the fact that Destro is still questionable for this match. Genoa was playing against Milan in their last Serie A game, and they have had only 42% of ball possession, 3 shots on goals, 2 corner kicks, and 84% of the correct passes. There was absolutely nothing Genoa could have done in this game, and even if they have played better, they would have still lost. Genoa has lost this game 0-3. At the moment, Genoa is only 1 point away from the safe zone, and the good news for them is there are plenty of bad teams in Serie A this season.

Genoa hasn’t won any of their last 12 games, and they have only 1 win on the road this season. Juventus is coming off of a nice win on the road, and they have always been successful at home against Genoa. I’m taking Juventus and the goals.
