Genoa vs Juventus Prediction & Betting tips
Genoa will receive a visit from Juventus this weekend, which left Atletico without a chance in the Champions League on Tuesday. One statistic speaks in favor of the home team, it was the first team this season to steal Juve points.
Genoa was unbeaten for six games until last weekend. Since the departure of top scorer Piatek, Genoa has mainly done this by not having many goals against, as it scored only four times in the last six games. After having played 0-0 against Chievo and Frosinone (two teams that will probably be relegated) lost to Parma last weekend.
The away match against Parma had little to offer for the neutral viewer. In the first seventy minutes no real chance was created by both teams, only Parma striker Inglese made a good attempt after an acrobatic turn. Genoa eventually gave up the only goal from a corner. Given that it came to only one shot on goal in the entire match, it did not claim a point.
As Genoa is almost certain that it will be Series A for another year, the sale of Piatek has not been a wrong choice, but it will have to look for a good striker again next summer. Mercenary Sanabria is not doing wrong with three goals in seven games, but his own contract players barely manage to find it. For example, Kouame made only four in 27 games and Pandev scored twice in eighteen games.
Cristiano Ronaldo and the Champions League have been mentioned in the same breath in recent years and the Portuguese made this happen again on Tuesday. With a hat trick he brushed away the 2-0 defeat in Madrid, Atletico had almost nothing to say in the return. Juve started furiously and scored via Chiellini after four minutes, but Bjorn Kuipers saw a foul on goalkeeper Oblak and refused the goal. This proved to be just a postponement of execution, within half an hour Ronaldo gave his team the lead from an assist from the other outstanding player of the match, Federico Bernardeschi. Shortly after the break, CR7 again scored with a header. Oblak seemed to have a great save, but the goal line technology brought a solution. In the final phase, Correa also made a stupid foul in the sixteen, after which Ronaldo was able to make the decisive one from a penalty kick.
The Old Lady can fully focus on bringing in the first Champions League since the victory over Ajax in 1996. The title is already almost in, the lead on Napoli is eighteen points.
