Team News: Genoa
Genoa boss Rolando Maran will be happy not to have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match thanks to a fully injury-free group to pick from.
It looks as if Il Grifone / Rossoblu will possibly make use of the 3-5-2 system for this one and select Mattia Perin, Davide Biraschi, Ivan Radovanovic, Cristian Zapata, Paolo Ghiglione, Lukas Lerager, Lasse Schone, Miha Zajc, Domenico Criscito, Mattia Destro and Goran Pandev.
Team News: Crotone
Due to a completely healthy squad available to choose from, Crotone boss Giovanni Stroppa does not have any fitness concerns at all before this clash.
We are inclined to think that Crotone seem likely to utilise a 3-5-2 formation by sending out Alex Cordaz, Vladimir Golemic, Luca Marrone, Lisandro Magallan, Salvatore Molina, Niccolò Zanellato, Luca Cigarini, Eduardo Henrique, Andrea Rispoli, Simeon Simmy Tochukwu Nwankwo - Simy and Emmanuel Riviere.
When taking all factors into account, Crotone are dangerous enough to score against this Genoa lineup, although that probably won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We can see a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning margin for Genoa after the 90. Should be an interesting one.
