Genoa vs Palermo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Palermo will be looking to put their Serie A campaign back on track when they travel to the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris to take on Genoa on Sunday night. Genoa managed an unexpected 1-0 home win over Fiorentina, with Darko Lazovic scoring the winner for Ivan Juric’s team. Meanwhile, Palermo looked awful under manager Eugenio Corini throughout this Serie A campaign as they suffered their ninth consecutive league defeat last weekend, losing 0-2 at home against ChievoVerona. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Genoa Preview

Genoa returned to winning ways in the Serie A in style last weekend thanks to a narrow 1-0 home victory over Fiorentina. The win lifts Genoa to a comfortable 10th place in the standings with 23 points to their name after 16 league games, eight points off the top five. Ivan Juric’s boys looked pretty solid at the back throughout this Serie A campaign, conceding just 17 goals in 16 rounds, but they haven’t been very prolific at the other end of the pitch. The Grifone hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 18 goals scored in 16 league games. Giovanni Simone and Leonardo Pavoletti have bagged seven goals between them so far this season, but the latter will be sorely missed as he is still on the sidelines due to injury since Genoa’s 3-1 defeat at Lazio back in the middle of November. Darko Lazovic has also played a vital part in Genoa’s performances so far this season, helping the team with one goal and three assists in his 13 league appearances. Despite the recent struggle, Genoa have been a tough nut to crack in front of their own fans this season, winning six and drawing four of their ten home fixtures in all competitions.

Palermo Preview

On the contrary, Palermo are the worst side in the Serie A at the moment as they enter the fray off the back of a 12-game winless streak in all competitions, losing eleven and drawing once in the process. The worrying fact is that Palermo have lost each of their last nine games in the Serie A, conceding at least two goals in eight of these. Palermo are rock bottom of the Serie A table with just 6 points under their belts after 16 league games, already five points behind safety. They had problems at both ends of the pitch this season, but the main issue has been their inefficient attack. They hold the second worst offensive record in the division with just 11 goals scored in 16 league games. Ilija Nestorovski has enjoyed a great start to the season despite Palermo’s struggle, as the 26-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with seven goals in his 16 league appearances. On the road, Palermo have only won two of their last 15 away games in all competitions, and are currently on a five-game winless streak in the Serie A. In addition; Palermo have failed to win a single game in their eleven visits to the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

Genoa Team News

Leonardo Pavoletti is the only injury absentee for Genoa ahead of this game.

Palermo Team News

Geancarlo Gonzalez, Leonardo Marson, Ouasim Bouy, Carlos Apna Embalo and Ivaylo Chochev are all doubts, while Slobodan Rajkovic is out through injury. The good news is that Accursion Bentivegna and Simone Giuliano are both back in training.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m backing Genoa to grab all three points in this one as their home form has been impeccable so far this season, winning six and drawing four of their ten home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, Genoa are undefeated in eleven home meetings with Palermo in all competitions. I’m also expecting Genoa to keep a clean sheet as Palermo have one of the worst defensive records in the division.
