Genoa cannot score
Genoa has already played four matches under Andriy Shevchenko. The result is disappointing – only 1 point in the 0-0 match against Udinese, 3 defeats and no goals scored. The Griffin are in the relegation zone, sitting second to last in the standings, and currently 2 points behind the saving 17th position.
On the previous matchday, Genoa played Juventus in Turin and lost 0-2.
Sampdoria’s also close to the danger zone
Roberto D'Aversa's Sampdoria are approaching the derby in 15th place, just five points ahead of the relegation zone. Clearly, nothing is settled for Sampdoria yet. The new project under the leadership of D'Aversa, who proved himself perfectly in Parma, seems a failure.
The last match saw Sampdoria suffer another defeat. This time the Genoa team lost at home to Lazio (1-3). By the 37th minute, the Romans scored three unanswered to actually decide the game.
The opponents faced each other three times last season. The two matches in Serie A ended in a draw. The Coppa Italia match witnessed Genoa come out stronger, 3-1.
