Genoa vs ChievoVerona Match Prediction

By William Hall

Genoa's search for a first win of the Serie A season continues on on Wednesday night as they welcome in Chievo Verona on match day five. Genoa come off the back of a 2-3 loss at home to Lazio, while Chievo got a 1-1 draw against Atalanta on Sunday. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chievo got the better of Genoa last season as they came away with four points from the two matches. They won this fixture 1-2 back in April, while they drew the other one 0-0 in December of last year. Chievo have typically gotten the better end of this fixture down the years, and that also is how the recent history has gone for the two teams. Given that and that Chievo's run of form is slightly better at this time, an away win is not out of the question at all.

Genoa Preview

Genoa have just one point from their four matches this season, and they are one of five teams to have that few or less in the league thus far. Two of the sides beneath them are promoted teams, while one other is a strong contender for it as they narrowly escaped it last year. Genoa will feel as though they are not that kind of team, but they must go out and prove it on the pitch and pull away from the mess. This match with Chievo isn't a bad time for them to try and do just that. The Verona side aren't all that great, either, and a win for Genoa would put them level on points with their visitors. They will be encouraged after their defeat on Sunday at the hands of a strong Lazio side, and that might just help them in their search for a win in this match here. Lazio had lead after just 13 minutes through Bastos, but Genoa pegged them back via substitute Pietro Pellegri's 57th minute goal. From there, the match got crazy as goals were traded back and forth. Ciro Immobile scored to give Lazio the lead back in the 70th minute, but Pellegri wasn't finished yet as he got his second just three minutes later. Just as Genoa looked to steal a point, though, they would concede a second to Immobile in the 82nd minute. Genoa got double the number of goals they had scored previously in the end of the match from Pellegri alone, and he now leads the team in goals.

Genoa Team News

Striker Gianluca Lapadula, a big hope of this Genoa side, will not be able to return until toward the end of October due to his knee injury. Winger Riccardo Centurion, who was injured on Sunday and replaced by hero Pellegri, looks set for a spell on the sidelines.

ChievoVerona Preview

Chievo arrive in Genoa ahead of this match in slightly better shape than Genoa are, but not by very much. They have four points from four matches, and that kind of form is hardly going to set the world on fire. However, given how last season ended, it's probably going to be enough to keep a team in Serie A- as sad as that may sound. There are some very poor sides that are going to struggle to break 20 points, so this could be a god-send for some teams out there. Chievo finished mid-table last season, though, so they probably won't be this poor all season. Since their opening win, they have gone three matches winless. They lost 0-3 to Juventus at home after the international break, and they have followed it up with a useful 1-1 draw at home to Atalanta on Sunday. The influential Roberto Inglese teed up Samuel Bastien's goal in the 52nd minute, and it had looked to be a winner for a long time in Verona. However, it wasn't meant to be as they surrendered a penalty in the 85th minute that Alejandro Gomez would make absolutely no mistake on to send a share of the spoils along with each team. Chievo have no scorers with more than one goal so far, but Inglese does lead the side with two assists in four matches.

ChievoVerona Team News

Striker Riccardo Meggiorini remains out with a knee injury that has held him out since April. He is still about a month away from a possible return for his club.
