Genoa vs Roma by JerryDrake
In the last 16 meetings between Genoa and Roma, there has never been a draw. Roma won 4 out of the last 5 but Genoa won the last game played at Marassi in May 2014. Genoa are now third placed in Serie A, 6 points behind Roma, they lost only once out of their last 6 home games, when they lost to Sampdoria in the city derby 0-1. In these 6 games we have never seen a “Over 2.5”.
Roma won 3 out of their last 6 away games, losing to Juventus and Napoli and drawing with Sampdoria. After their elimination from the Champions League, they will have to continue their run with Juventus. Not easy, first of all because Roma could be tired after spending a lot of energies with Manchester City. Second, because Genoa were able to defeat Juventus and Milan at home.
Genoa trainer stated that he will not play for the draw. Roma trainer Garcia said that the match with Manchster City has already been forgotten and the team is now concentrated on Genoa.
Roma will attack as they did with City. But recently they have conceded too many goals: 6 in their last 3 overall games: 2 with Inter (4-2 at home), 2 with Sassuolo (2-2 at home) and 2 with City (0-2 at home). Genoa will not let Roma win without having created score chances. Matri is fit, Pinilla starts from the bench and could give his support in the second half. Midfield player Bertolacci comes from Rome and is Roma fan, he will also want to score against his team.
The defence of Roma is not perfect recently, Genoa attack is dangerous and the spectators at Marassi will not pretend a victory but a brave and attacking team. Score prediction: 1-2 or 2-2
