Genoa vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
Genoa took an important point in the fight against relegation after a 2-0 deficit last weekend. On Tuesday, an opponent of a different caliber will visit, namely cup winner Napoli.
Genoa took only one run in the first three games after the stoppage, but that didn’t seem to change on Sunday. Davide Nicola’s team got the 1-0 a minute before half-time and saw Udinese even 2-0 in the 73rd minute after a short combination. Only late in the match did Genoa also find the goal. The connection goal came in the 81st minute from the almost 37-year-old striker Goran Pandev who came into the field in the second half. The equalizer came in injury time from the foot of his 21-year-old colleague in the striker Andrea Pinamonti who shot a penalty kick at the goalkeeper but still made the 2-2 in the rebound. Pinamonti scored for the third game in a row, two of which he made from eleven meters.
Napoli started the month with a 2-0 loss against Atalanta despite a lot of chances. The azzuri shot a total of fifteen times, eight times between the posts, yet the counter remained at zero goals. Also on Sunday, Napoli had much more shooting chances than the opponent, this time resulting in a three-pointer. This time Napoli shot no less than eighteen times, of which twelve times on target, the visitors of AS Roma shot only five times in total. The game only started in the second half when Jose Callejon shot in a perfectly measured cross from Mario Rui. Five minutes later, the Romans tied the score again via Henrik Mkhitaryan after a weak defense of Giovanni Di Lorenzo. Ten minutes before the end, Lorenzo Insigne won with a beautifully curled shot into the far corner, it was only his first goal in the last eight games.
