A win for Genoa will be important as they seek to turn around their fortunes this season.
AS Roma started the season off on the front foot but have been struggling to produce results lately. The side from the capital have won just one of their last five games, losing two and sharing the points in the other two games. Their last game before the international break was away at Venezia, where they came back from a gaol down to lead 2-1 at halftime only to lose 3-2 to the newly promoted side. A win will take Roma into 5th, three points behind 4th placed Atalanta.
AS Roma have dominated this fixture over the years. In their last five head-to-head meetings, Roma have won three with the other two games ending in draws. Their last meeting in Serie A was at the Stadio Olimpico last season where a Gianluca Manicini goal was the difference after 90 minutes.
Genoa have been struggling to produce results this season. With just a single win after 12 league games, Genoa are a side on the decline. With AS Roma still competing for the European places, Mourinho will fancy his side’s chances of taking all three points in their Sunday encounter. AS Roma are expected to win.
