Genoa showed a lot of spirit by coming back twice against Benevento in a home match. Spezia did lose against a tough opponent in the form of Inter Milan during the midweek action. However, Vincenzo Italiano has seen his team lose five consecutive away matches since beating Sassuolo 2-1 back in February. Genoa are also in a position to do the double over Spezia.
Both teams to score – yes
The two goals scored by Benevento at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris once again highlighted the defensive issues for Ballardini’s men. The last time Genoa managed a shutout was in February when they were involved in a goalless draw against Torino. Spezia will get opportunities to score and they have the potential to get a goal or two.
Total goals over 2.5
It is remarkable that the last nine away matches for Spezia have produced more than 2.5 goals with ease. In fact, one can even find such examples even when Spezia have not been scoring goals – like against Fiorentina and Juventus. Genoa’s horrid defensive run coupled with Spezia’s mediocre away performances would help this game get over 2.5 goals.
Analysis of Genoa vs Spezia game with team news
Genoa know that a point or two can give them a lot of relief from the threat of relegation. A five-point lead over Cagliari in the 18th place does not sound huge – especially amidst resurgence from teams in the bottom three. Furthermore, Genoa have been throwing away points with a poor defence. Davide Ballardini does not have the services of Luca Pellegrini for this game.
Spezia kept their hopes of staying in the Italian Serie A alive after the point against Inter Milan. Yet, the team may have to do some drastic improvement in away matches if they are to become confident of staying in the division. In recent weeks, Spezia have also been among the goals and they have averaged 1.5 per game in the last six. Vincenzo Italiano does not have any injury problems coming into the game.
