Serie A: Genoa vs Napoli Live
In the upcoming Serie A clash, Genoa is set to face Napoli at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, and there’s plenty to look forward to.
Genoa hasn’t had the easiest start to the 2023-24 Serie A season, losing two out of their first three games. While they did stun Lazio with a 1-0 victory in gameweek two, a subsequent 4-1 loss to Fiorentina and a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Torino have somewhat dampened their spirits. However, they’re now gearing up to challenge last season’s defending champions.
Genoa’s Alessandro Vogliacco and Alan Matturro are not expected to return until the end of September. Mateo Retegui, the scorer of the winning goal against Lazio, is expected to lead Genoa’s attack.
Napoli began the season with two victories but faced a setback when Lazio defeated them 2-1 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium. Despite some promising moments, Napoli couldn’t capitalize on their chances. The team is now looking to get back on track and continue their positive start to the season.
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, who had a quiet gameweek three, will be aiming to regain his goal-scoring form. However, Matteo Politano is doubtful for this weekend’s clash due to his early withdrawal during Italy’s match with North Macedonia.
From their past five meetings, Napoli has clinched four victories while Genoa has claimed only one. Genoa’s win came when they played at home two seasons ago. Dating back to 2017, Napoli has always conceded at least 1 goal when they play away to Genoa.
We expect Napoli to clinch a 3-1 or 2-1 win. A draw looks unlikely in this match. Also, expect at least two goals from this match with neither side keeping a clean sheet.
