All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Inter Milan v Genoa are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
Inter Milan will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 0-3 Serie A success over AC Milan.
In that match, Inter Milan managed 40% possession and 16 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. For Inter Milan, the goals were scored by Lautaro Martínez (5', 57') and Romelu Lukaku (66'). AC Milan had 15 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target.
Their more recent scorelines shine a light on the fact that much respect should be given to the Inter Milan defence. Nerazzurri have given the opposition little, seeing the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past 6 outings standing at 3.
Leading up to this clash, Inter Milan:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Genoa in their last 5 matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 9 league matches at home. A run that they'll hope to extend here.
In their previous game, Genoa drew 2-2 in the Serie A tie with Hellas Verona.
In that match, Genoa had 50% possession and 14 shots at goal with 3 on target. For Genoa, goals were scored by Eldor Shomurodov (48') and Milan Badelj (94'). At the other end, Hellas Verona had 9 shots on goal with 3 on target. Ivan Ilić (17') and Davide Faraoni (61') scored for Hellas Verona.
A sequence of very capable displays by the Genoa defensive players has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their previous 6 outings in total. Over that same period of time, their own forwards have managed to score 8. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, however.
Ahead of this meeting, Genoa are unbeaten in their last 3 league matches away from home.

Team News: Inter Milan
Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Stefano Sensi (Muscle Fatigue) is out of contention. Achraf Hakimi will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Genoa
Genoa manager Davide Ballardini has to choose a team with limited availability. Davide Biraschi (Shoulder Injury), Cristián Zapata (Muscular problems), Francesco Cassata (Muscle Injury), Alberto Paleari (Muscle Fatigue) and Luca Pellegrini (Thigh Problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
