Serie A Preview | Genoa vs. Hellas Verona: tough battle at Marassi

by | Sep 24, 2021 19:37

Genoa search for their first home win against a Hellas Verona side yet to win on the road this term.

Igor Tudor replaced Eusebio Di Francesco at the Bentegodi and has lifted the spirits at the Gialloblu, who arrive from four points in their last two games.

The 2-2 draw with Salernitana last time was the same result Genoa secured against Bologna, and the last match between the two sides in Serie A ended with the same score at the Luigi Ferraris.

Genoa have lost their two home games this term and are looking for a positive result in front of their own fans, while Verona are chasing their first three-pointer on the road at Marassi.

Nikola Kalinic scored a brace last time and is expected to start up front again for the away side, with Mattia Destro spearheading the Grifone on Saturday, as Felipe Caicedo has not been called up.
