📰 Team News: Genoa
It’s our opinion that Il Grifone look set to kick off with a 3-5-2 formation and select Josep Martinez, Domenico Criscito, Alessandro Vogliacco, Radu Dragusin, Morten Frendrup, Silvan Hefti, Milan Badelj, Mattia Aramu, Stefano Sabelli, Eddie Salcedo and Caleb Ekuban.
📰 Team News: AS Bari
Due to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, the AS Bari manager Michele Mignani has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
We reckon that Galletti could decide to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation by sending out Elia Caprile, Mehdi Dorval, Valerio Di Cesare, Francesco Vicari, Giacomo Ricci, Ahmad Benali, Leonardo Benedetti, Raffaele Maiello, Nicola Bellomo, Sebastiano Esposito and Walid Cheddira.
Our feeling is that AS Bari will surely be able to break down this Genoa side, although that possibly won’t quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Our tip is for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for Genoa after the 90. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
