Juventus vs Genoa Prediction
Maurizio Sarri’s decision to rest talisman Cristiano Ronaldo certainly backfired in their previous clash, after Lecce did just enough to hold the hosts to a 1-1 draw on the road. The tie has subsequently brought their seven-match winning streak in all competitions to an abrupt halt.
Nevertheless, the home side are still on an unbeaten run at the moment and are a point adrift of Inter at the helm.
Genoa, on the other hand, managed to bring a six-match winless streak to a close last week after the visitors came back from behind to post a 3-1 victory. The away side have registered a win just twice so far, and are deservedly dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder with no more than eight points to their name.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests are sporting the third-worst away record in the cluster right now, and are yet to have a taste of success on the road. Thiago Motta’s side have also admitted defeat in six of their last seven visits here. With Genoa forced on to the back foot before the break, in their last two outings as well, Juventus are more than likely to win both halves with ease in this one.
Furthermore, the visitors have hardly shown any conviction in the defensive third, especially on the road. The visitors have conceded fifteen goals away from home, which is the most by any side up till now.
Considering that Juventus have scored two goals or more in each of their home games this season, brace yourselves for nothing short of a high scoring affair this week.
