Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Hellas Verona v Genoa can be found here - plus the latest match odds.
Hellas Verona will be hoping for a better result after a 1-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against Parma.
In that match, Hellas Verona managed 61% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 2 on target. At the other end, Parma got 11 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Jasmin Kurtić (1') scored for Parma.
A common characteristic of more recent Hellas Verona games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
Taking their prior six matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a loser. That sort of trend might not be sustained into this game, of course.
Coming into this clash, Hellas Verona haven't been defeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against SSC Napoli in Serie A action, Genoa and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
SSC Napoli got 18 shots on goal with 9 on target. Hirving Lozano (10', 65'), Piotr Zieliński (46'), Dries Mertens (57'), Elif Elmas (69') and Matteo Politano (72') scored for SSC Napoli.
The stats tell the story, and Genoa have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 16 goals overall. At the back, Il Grifone / Rossoblu just haven’t been too solid at all.
Coming into this fixture, Genoa are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.

We feel that Genoa will need things to go their way to breach the defence of this Hellas Verona team who we think might well get the vital goal that wins it.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought 1-0 winning margin for Hellas Verona when the full-time whistle blows.
A close call.
