Genoa vs Verona Prediction & Betting tips
The recent advance of Genoa has ensured that the team does not feel degradation pressure for the time being. Hellas Verona is interested in the same kind of scenario, but does not seem to have the right form. The two teams meet each other on Monday evening.
The formation of trainer Davide Ballardini seemed not too long ago to be ready for slaughter, but just when the dreaded line really came close, the team hit back. The last five games only resulted in a loss and Genoa also succeeded in defeating some direct competitors. For example, Cagliari and Crotone were defeated in Genoa, and those are just the victories that count double by the end of the season. The advance has ensured that the twelfth place was reached and that the gap with the eighteenth place has grown to ten points and that makes for satisfied faces among the supporters.
Midweeks was also the first defeat in five games noted, but that was actually no result for which Genoa does not have to be ashamed. The game with AS Roma entered the visitors as the ultimate underdog. By the way, Genoa came close to winning when Gianluca Lapadula restored hope and put the 2-1 on the board, but then AS Roma managed to defend the narrow lead successfully.
Genoa now has another chance to play against Hellas Verona in a home game. In the injury area Genoa is pretty good for it. The 35-year-old Nicolas Spolli is still struggling with an injury and the name of Armando Izzo can also be crossed, while Adel Taarabt is not completely fit. For now, all of this will be absorbed and Genoa will therefore kick off with a strong potential.
Newcomer Hellas Verona will have to make every effort not to have to say goodbye to Serie A again after a season. The low flyer has to do with a lack of form and a fatal fact is that the team is not able to get points against teams that actually should. The best example of this is a 3-0 defeat on a visit to Benevento, the current number last, while there was also lost to Sassuolo for his own audience. Perhaps more worrying is the fact that Hellas Verona did not score in five of the last six matches and that indicates that it is now really up to twelve at the relegation candidate. The gap with the safe seventeenth place has already risen to four points.
At the start of this month, Hellas Verona booked a 1-0 win over Cagliari, but the last two games were lost again. Last weekend, Fabio Pecchia’s team trailed 2-0 at the shortest distance to Bologna and midweek did not manage Hellas Verona to prevent the defeat against Sassuolo, which was extremely bad considering the current positions in the rankings. Mauricio Lemos opened the score in Verona and that later proved to be the only goal of the game.
In the run-up to the meeting with Genoa, Pecchia has to deal with some minor injuries and because of that he will have to work hard to get to his best eleven. By the name of Alex Ferrari can already be put a line. The defender took his fifth yellow card of the season against Sassuolo and that was put on a match suspension.
