Three or more goals per game have been seen in 5 of the past 6 meetings where Genoa have participated. Their opponents scored 10 times in these games whereas Il Grifone / Rossoblu totted up 11. Such a trend might not be carried forward into this game, though.
Going into this contest, Genoa are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.

Over the course of 5 of the past 6 games involving Juventus, a comparatively low number of goals have gone in between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game within that spell works out to a meagre 1.5, with the average goals for La Vecchia Signora standing at 1.33. We shall soon see whether or not that trend will be sustained into this next match.
Ahead of this meeting, Juventus are undefeated in their previous 2 away league matches.

Team News: Genoa
Domenico Criscito (Hamstring Injury), Antonio Sanabria (Muscle Fatigue) and Ivan Radovanovic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be taking part for Genoa boss Davide Nicola.
It’s our opinion that Il Grifone / Rossoblu may well go for a 3-4-3 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Matia Perin, Adama Soumaoro, Cristian Gabriel Romero, Cristian Zapata, Antonio Barreca, Stefano Sturaro, Valon Behrami, Davide Biraschi, Andrea Pinamonti, Iago Falqué and Mattia Destro.
Team News: Juventus
Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has multiple availability issues to deal with. Gonzalo Higuaín (Muscular problems), Giorgio Chiellini (Fitness), Alex Sandro (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury), Merih Demiral (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Sami Khedira (Tear in the abductor muscle) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Danilo will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
There’s a good chance that La Vecchia Signora could decide to make use of a 4-3-3 formation, starting Wojciech Szczesny, Juan Cuadrado, Matthijs de Ligt, Leonardo Bonucci, Blaise Matuidi, Adrien Rabiot, Miralem Pjanic, Rodrigo Bentancur, Federico Bernardeschi, Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Our pre-match assessment is that Juventus are likely to get a lot of shots on goal and make them count. However, Genoa won’t find it easy to break down their defence, although we do think that it’s probable they’ll be pulling one back during this clash. We’re predicting a 1-3 victory for Juventus when the referee blows the final whistle.
