Reason For Genoa vs Napoli Predictions

  • Napoli have scored at least twice in five of their last six games
  • The Grifone have conceded 2+ goals in all their home meetings with the top seven, losing every match

Point does little for Genoa

While Genoa claimed a 2-2 draw at the weekend, gaining a point against Udinese did little to boost their survival bid. The Grifone are just two points clear of the drop with eight matches left to play, so they need to start turning draws into wins.

However, the hosts have struggled at the back since returning to action. Their four games so far have seen them concede at least twice, while things could get worse against a Napoli side who have their eyes on a fifth-placed finish to go alongside their Coppa Italia glory.

Napoli finishing on a high

The visitors have stormed up the table, with a fifth place finish still possible for the Partenopei. Napoli have picked up 25 points in 15 games under Gennaro Gattuso – only three teams have done better in that period (Juventus, Lazio and Atalanta). It’s an impressive return, especially as Gattuso has got his team firing. The former Milan boss was seen as a defence first coach, but he’s got this side scoring.

Napoli have found the net twice or more in five of their last six games in Serie A. Their 2-1 win over Roma at the weekend has boosted confidence further for Gattuso and his team. That should continue this week, as the Partenopei have picked up five goals and six points from their last two visits to this ground to face Genoa.

Genoa struggling against the giants

With Napoli back in form, Genoa should be worried about this crucial clash. The hosts have been in poor form against the top sides in Serie A, so they are vulnerable in midweek. Not only are they playing at home without their home support, but they’ve already had troubles stopping quality teams. Napoli are exactly that right now, which should bring about a busy night for the Grifone defence.

Genoa have lost to all of the top seven at home so far, suffering five defeats and conceding at least twice in each. While they have scored in each of those losses, shipping a combined 13 goals across five matches is a major issue. The top sides have scored the majority of the 25 goals Genoa have conceded in 15 at home, so we are going with Napoli to continue their attacking form and score over 1.5 goals this week.

Napoli are unbeaten against Genoa in Serie A since 2012 (W10 D5). With the visitors in scoring form, we don’t expect that to change. The Partenopei are in great form and we see them seeing off Genoa on Wednesday. Given that 79% of Genoa’s home games and 80% of Napoli’s away games have seen both teams score, we are backing a 2-1 win for the Partenopei as our correct score prediction.
