Genoa won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 0-1 Serie A losing effort in their last game against Bologna.
In that game, Genoa managed 51% possession and 18 attempts on goal with 5 on target. On the other side, Bologna got 11 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Musa Barrow (66') was the scorer for Bologna.
Genoa have really been misfiring in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 3 versus opposing sides during their previous 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Genoa have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 8. Historical results aside, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend will be replicated here in this game or not.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Pisa in Serie B - Play-offs competition, Benevento and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Benevento managed 49% possession and 7 shots at goal with 1 on target. For their opponents, Pisa got 12 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Ahmad Benali (11') scored for Pisa.
It is worth noting that Benevento have had real problems scoring goals over their last 6 games, contributing the disappointing return of just 4. In those fixtures, Benevento have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 8.
Head to head

Team News: Genoa
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Genoa manager Alexander Blessin to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Stefano Sturaro (Surgery) is out of contention.
Team News: Benevento
Owing to a completely healthy group available to select from, the Benevento manager Fabio Caserta has no fitness concerns to report ahead of this clash.
We feel that Benevento have it in them to get a goal against this Genoa outfit, but it is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We think that it’s going to be a narrow 2-1 winning score for Genoa at full-time. It really should be an interesting one.
