Juventus – Genoa Prediction 22 January 2018


The program of the 21st round of the Italian Serie A will be concluded by a match between Juventus and Genoa. Bookmakers reckon, that the upcoming game will not be efficient: Juventus play great in defense, while Genoa are having trouble with attack, although Il Grifone defend well.

Prior to the pause, Juventus were in a great sporting shape, Massimiliano Allegri’s team managed to win five latest games, whereas conceding only one goal to their net. Juventus are situated on the second position in the Serie A tournament table, losing only one point to Napoli, having 50 points in the asset. Juventus have had ten matches at their home ground within Serie A, in which they managed to win eight times with one draw and one defeat, the goal difference is 22:4.

In the past seasons Genoa were an offensive team, but at the start of the season, the former manager  Juric started to rebuild the Griffins to his order. The current coach Ballardini continued his colleague’s beginning and now the red-and-blues are a defensive, which is clearly seen by the latest statistics. Within the last five games there were five matches with under 2.5 goals scored: the defeat against Juve in the Italian Cup, 0:2, 0:0 draw with Fiorentina and Torino, 1:0 over Sassuolo and Benevento. Genoa have risen to the 14th position in the Serie A table, with six point handicap over Crotone, which are in the relegation zone.

Juventus will probably win in the upcoming game, but the match itself will probably not going to be efficient, both sides do not concede that much and Genoa barely score.

Prediction for the match: Juventus to win + under 3.5 goals in the match
