Genoa vs Sampdoria: Predictions and Betting Tips
Genoa to bounce back
It hasn’t been a very successful season for Genoa so far as they lie at 13th position with 26 points at the Serie A table eight points above the relegation zone. With 14 matches to go for the season’s conclusion, they can’t afford to lose many points as they did in their last three matches.
Genoa are winless in those three matches but before that, they were on a three-win run and have just one defeat in their last eight matches and that was to Inter Milan.
In the match where they lost to Inter, they were dominated by the Serie A leaders and had just three goal attempts and enjoyed 46% of ball possession. Coach Davide Ballardini will hope to have a much better performance on Wednesday against their city rivals.
36 goals conceded with an average of 1.5 goals per game is what Sampdoria are sharing with Genoa coming into this game, but they don’t want to share anything else and especially not the points of the game.
Coach Claudio Ranieri feels the two defeats they suffered in their last two matches against Lazio and Atalanta were against difficult teams and will urge his team to go for a win in this match and earn the three points.
In their last match at home to Atalanta, Ranieri’s side shared the possession of the ball with their opponents but had seven goal attempts to Atalanta’s 20. They must improve their defense as they have no clean sheets in their last five matches.
- Genoa are unbeaten at home in six matches
- Genoa have scored in the last ten home matches
- Sampdoria have scored in two of their last five matches
- Sampdoria have scored four times in the last five away matches
