Match : Genoa vs Verona
Competition : Italy – Serie A
Time / Date : 21:45h / 23 April 2018
Venue : Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris
Genoa’s defeat against Roma in midweek ended a four-game unbeaten streak, but they are now so close to securing their top-flight stauts.Goran Pandev and the lads are having troubles of converting their chances into goals, while their defence is doing a good job. Although they were not putting fine performances when playing in front of their fans, they Genoa managed to tie three matches without suffering a defeat and improve their home record a bit.
Away side missed the chance to improve their chances of survival in the latest round as they were defeated in a direct clash against relegation rivals Sassuolo. However, they still have the chance of staying up at the end of the season since they are four points away from the nearest safe spot. But, away fans cannot be much optimistic since Fabio Pecchia’s side celebrated only one victory in the last five matches, and in the other four they were defeated. The main concern of the visitors is their bad defensive work as they’ve conceded 65 goals so far, and they need to improve urgently if they want to stay clear of the relegation.

Genoa won 1-0 away from home in the reverse fixture with Verona.
Since away team is an awful form lately , we can expect Genoa to take advantage from that and to record a win.
The hosts will be in the commanding position in the match, and since they are playing very tight, this one should stay under 2.5 margin.
