One of the games scheduled this Sunday in Serie A will take place between Genoa and Roma, at 14:00, UK time. This meeting will be played in the 19th Round of Serie A, the visitors being the favourites to win. This past Saturday was a pretty good day, since we had both predictions prove true for Real Madrid vs Granada. We had two games scheduled yesterday in the Italian league, Empoli vs Palermo, and Napoli vs Sampdoria.

Genoa

  • The hosts are in the 12th position after six wins, five draws, and seven losses in the domestic league.
  • With 23 points, like Sampdoria and Cagliari, they managed to score only 21 goals and conceded 22.
  • They are not in impressive form at all, since they have just one win in the last five games in Serie A, ticking one more draw and three losses.
  • Talking about home matches, things are a little better, considering that the team has been defeated in just one game in the last 10, having five more draws and four wins.
  • Their last two matches have been losses, 3-4 vs Palermo, and 0-1 vs Torino.
  • Simeone is likely to start upfront in a 3-4-2-1 formation.

Genoa probable lineup (3-4-2-1): Perin - Munoz, Burdisso, Izzo - Laxalt, Cofie, Rigoni, Lazovic - Ocampos, Ninkovic - Simeone.

Roma

  • The visitors are in a very good shape, being in the second position after 18 games.
  • They have the second best attack and defense in this campaign, with a 39-18 goal difference.
  • So far, they ticked 12 wins, two draws, and four losses, managing to gain 38 points.
  • Roma's current form is a good one, considering that they have just one loss in the last seven games (0-1 vs Juventus), checking one more draw and five wins.
  • Their last match was at home against Chievo and it was a 3-1 victory.
  • Roma have also won four out of the last five meetings vs Genoa, and they were defeated in the other one.
  • In two of the last five matches, there has been an average of 2.5 goals per game.
  • In this duel, Roma will be without Mohamed Salah, since he is gone for the African Cup of Nations.

Roma probable lineup (4-2-3-1): Szczesny - Peres, Manolas, Fazio, Rudiger - Rossi, Strootman - Shaarwy, Nainggolan, Perotti - Dzeko.
