Stadium: Luigi Ferraris (Genoa)
Saturday’s Serie A fixture in Genoa opens the 4th round of the season. Genoa take on Fiorentina at Luigi Ferraris Stadium. Who will pick up 3 points from this fixture? Or maybe the opponents will draw and share the points? We have a couple of options to choose from.
Genoa turn the match around and fire the opposing coach
The Serie A championship has just begun, and the tournament teams have already had two coaching resignations. Eusebio Di Francesco has left Verona, and Cagliari have fired Leonardo Semplici following their defeat to Genoa in the previous fixture. The Sardinians were 2-0 up but managed to concede victory and lost 2-3. Mattia Destro and Mohamed Fares scored twice for Genoa. Although they again conceded two goals, the Griffin showed character, which is encouraging for the Genoa fans.
Fiorentina unleash their potential
As soon as the Fiorentina management appointed a suitable coach, the team immediately began to produce results. After losing out to AS Roma in the first round, with Fiorentina trailing by one goal midway through the first half, Vincenzo Italiano’s side has notched up two straight wins. Torino and Atalanta were held to the same score of 2-1.
Dusan Vlahovic deserves special mention. In the match against Atalanta, the magnificent Serb converted two penalties. He now has three goals and a place at the top of the scoring charts. Only Ciro Immobile scored more than four goals.
History of head-to-head encounters
Fiorentina cannot beat Genoa since 2018 - 5 draws, 1 defeat.
Expert Betting Tips
Although they suffered two defeats in 3 matches at the start of the championship, Genoa looked very good in stretches. In the game against Napoli in the second round, they were short of winning just a few minutes. There was nothing to mention the magnificent comeback against Cagliari. The bookmakers see Fiorentina as the favourite to win the upcoming match, but it will not be easy to win in Genoa. Maybe it will end in a draw, as in 5 of the last six games between the teams. But we should not rule out a win for the Genoese either. A success against Cagliari would undoubtedly give the team a big emotional boost.
