Genoa hosts Cagliari
Genoa hosts Cagliari at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in a match from the 23th round of the Serie A. We will talk about it with you during our football tips tonight.
Genoa can use every point they can win now because the Griffoni are 18th in the league with 16 points. The danger of relegation is pretty real for them, so they need to react to the situation. Right now Genoa are three points behind Lecce and the safe zone. The team have won just three games from the beginning of the season, which is not really what they aim to do at the moment.
Last week Genoa made their 7th draw for the season. It was not a win, but it’s still a point. Davide Nicola avoided the defeat at a very difficult ground, doing a 2-2 draw with Atalanta in Bergamo. Domenico Criscito and Antonio Sanabria scored for Genoa. The bad news for the manager Nicola came from Valon Behrami’s red card. The Swiss is going to miss the next game.
Cagliari are fighting for a qualification for Europe this season, which speaks very well of their season. The Rossoblu are currently 6th in the league with 32 points, so finishing in the Top 6 would be a great result for them.
The problem for Cagliari is their current shape – the team is without a win in its last five games. Right now the Rossoblu are in a run of three consecutive draws in the Serie A.
Last week Cagliari hosted Parma at the Sardegna Arena and lost two points after a 2-2 draw. Joao Pedro and Giovanni Simeone scored for the hosts, but Parma equalised with a very late goal in the 94th minute. It was dissapointing for the hosts.
In these football tips tonight we believe it’s a great chance for Cagliari to win for a first time in a while. Genoa are hurt and although they will fight for points, the visitors are favourites here.
