Genoa welcomes Sassuolo
Genoa welcomes Sassuolo in a match from the 18th round of the Serie A. In our sure win prediction today we will discuss this game at the Luigi Ferraris with you. Let’s go!
Genoa are in a desperate situation right now, being at the bottom of the league with just 11 points won. Il Griffoni are four points behind the 17th Sampdoria and the safe zone, so they must start winning some games and points, because survival won’t be easy.
Against Sassuolo Genoa will be managed by another coach once again. Thiago Motta was sacked after just two months at the job. He was replaced by Davide Nicola, who will make his debut on Sunday. Can he change Genoa’s fortunes this season? It’d be interesting to look at his job at the club.
Thiago Motta was sacked after winning just two points in Genoa’s last five games. In their last match Il Griffoni visited Inter Milan at the San Siro, but they were outperformed and suffered a 0-4 defeat.
Sassuolo are in a better position at the moment, being 13th in the league with 19 points. In the games played so far they have a record of 5 wins, 4 draws and 8 defeats. They have lost just once in their last five matches – against Napoli. This happened in the previous round of the Serie A.
It was a bad luck for Sassuolo against Napoli, because they lost the game after an own goal in the 94th minute. It was 1-1 at the MAPEI Stadium, but Pedro Obiang had the bad luck score himself an own goal. Before this Hamed Traore opened the score for Sassuolo, while Allan equalised for the visitors.
The game between Genoa and Sassuolo on Sunday looks difficult to make a prediction for, because it’s a mystery how the hosts will perform under their new head coach Davide Nicola. We believe Sassuolo have slight advantage here, but let’s see.
