Genoa vs. Juventus Predictions and Preview
Prior to the defeat against the Crociati, Genoa were in the midst of an impressive six-game unbeaten run. This sequence of results included two wins and four draws and the Rossoblu have done well in the last six weeks under the stewardship of Cesare Prandelli.
The former Italy boss has steadied the ship after months of uncertainty in the dugout with predecessor Ivan Juric dismissed for an astonishing third time.
Genoa are currently nine points above the relegation places and three more victories should be enough to stave off any threat of demotion.
The Krzysztof Piątek-less outfit will look to winter recruit Antonio Sanabria to make a nuisance of himself against the visitors and the Paraguayan can be pleased with his performances to date. Sanabria has three goals from seven appearances and is 7/2 in the anytime market, while the hosts are 6/1 to shock Juventus and claim all three points or 5/2 to earn a draw.
Travelling party Juventus are closing in on another title but after Napoli failed to get the better of Sassuolo. Max Allegri gave a rare run out to Moise Kean in the previous gameweek with Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic sitting out and the youngster did not disappoint.
Kean netted twice against Udinese in the 4-1 rout but is likely to have to settled for a cameo in the closing stages with the first choice attack reinstated. Kean is 6/1 to bag last while the Bianconeri are 4/7 to chalk up triumph number 25 of the season.
One to watch for Genoa: Gianluca Lapadula has been promised an opportunity to shine in the closing weeks of the season and is 11/1 to net last.
One to watch for Juventus: Emre Can has come in to some goalscoring form and has three efforts from the last five matches. The German is 23/4 to register anytime during the encounter.
Long shot: Genoa are leaky defensively but do carry a threat going forward. Meanwhile, Juventus are near faultless in every department on the domestic front, led by Ronaldo who is striving for yet another golden boot. A convincing 4-1 success for the Bianconeri is 33/1.
