Genoa vs Sampdoria by JerryDrake
Now, Genoa have defeated Sampdoria 3-0 in September. It was another Sampdoria (still trained by Delio Rossi) but it was also another Genoa as well, without Burdisso, Marchese, Konaté and Bertolacci. And above all, without coach Gasperini. I am impressed also by Perin's performances. The young goalkeeper is improving day by day and I would pay an entrace ticket just to see him playing.
With Gasperini Genoa are still undefeated at home: Genoa - Chievo 2-1 (Oct. 2013), Genoa - Parma 1-0 (Oct. 2013), Genoa - Verona 2-0 (Nov. 2013), Genoa - Torino 1-1 (Nov. 2013), Genoa - Atalanta 1-1 (Dec. 2013), Genoa - Sassuolo 2-0 (Jan. 2013), Genoa - Inter 1-0 (Jan. 19, 2013).
It is still not sure that this “derby della Lanterna” will be played at the scheduled time and day, the match might be postponed to Monday.
In my old previews I have always written positive opinions about Mihajlovic's work and above all about Gabbiadini. Even by keeping these opinions I can not avoid noticing that Genoa have become much stronger in these last months and when it comes to a derby, organized in this case by Genoa as Genoa will be the “home” team, their fans know perfectly how to support their players.
I will not miss the match on TV and I suggest you to do the same.
