Once again this season, Genoa are among the teams struggling for survival and are hoping to avoid the drop by May next year.
After an impressive run of form in recent games, the Grifone have moved away from from danger. It’s left for them to build on this form and claim their first home victory of the season or fall back to danger zone.
Genoa have been awful in 2017, but things seems to be bright for them now. They started this season with some awful home fixtures and yet to face a side below 12th in the table at home. They have played most of the big sides and this time they are playing Atlanta who finished 4th last season.
Atlanta secured their place at the top of their Europa League group stage and will now focus on Serie A. They were a very good team last season but this term they are only better than SPAL and Benevento on away games.
Atlanta have not win an away game this season and this is an opportunity for Genoa to take an important 3 point. The two teams have similar problem which is traced to their defense.
Genoa has an average of 2.14 goals conceded per game at home while Atlanta have conceded an average of 2 goals on the road.
Grifone haven’t kept a home clean sheet this season and have seen both teams score in 2/3 of their home games. Atlanta have conceded in every of their game on the road which makes us think Both teams will score in this game.
Considering the host’s form at home (winless) and visitor’s form on their trips (winless) we expect the game to end stalemate. Genoa are unbeaten in their last 4 games while Atlanta have drawn 5 of the 15 league games played this year. We think a draw is likely to occur here.
