Genoa and Chievo will face off today on a Serie A match, with this being an uninteresting match in my opinion,
and one where I give the favouritism to Genoa.
The home team didn’t start the season well but they are already a usual presence in the Serie A.
They are yet to win a match so far, having played 4 matches by now and only getting a 0-0 draw against Sassuolo on the 1st round.
Then, they had 3 losses in tough matches so to speak, losing away at Udinese and at home against Lazio and Juventus.
The team has scored 4 goals so far, scoring 1 per match, on average, and have conceded a lot so far, 8 in total.
As for players, Perin, Veloso, Gentiletti and Laxait have been usual starters for them, and that is more than expected, considering Lapadula and Pandev weren’t able to have an impact up front, losing the spotlight to a 16-year-old kid who scored a brace on his Serie A debut last weekend, Pellegri.
As for Chievo, they are a team that doesn’t tell me much and a team that I don’t expect anything from. They started the season better than Genoa, having 4 points so far and having won away 1-2 at Udinese and also having tied against Atalanta.
Between those matches, they have lost against Juventus and Lazio, just like Genoa. Their goal record is similar, having 4 goals scored and 7 goals conceded at this point.
As for players, the team has a lot of veterans who will offer the needed experience to avoid relegation but this team won’t be able to cause major problems to the big clubs in the Serie A, as we could already see this season.
Genoa vs Chievo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Playing at home and against Chievo, I really think that this will be Genoa’s first win this season.
The team is better in my opinion and it would be surprising if, after 5 matches, they still hadn’t won, considering they had 3 matches at home.
Since 2010, Genoa has lost a lot of times at home against Chievo, just like it happened last season. But the situation is different now.
Still, as i like to play safe when 2 mid-table teams are facing off, I will bet on a home win, but with the protection on the draw, getting my stake back if the match ends in a draw.
