Genoa vs Roma
Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Sunday 8th January
Kick Off: 14:00
Genoa will be aiming to dent Roma’s title hopes with a victory over the leagues second placed club tomorrow. The visitors sit 15 points ahead of their hosts, and 4 behind league leaders Juventus, so most will be expecting another win this weekend. Roma have been in good form of late, while Genoa have suffered three defeats in their last four and could do with a return to winning ways to steady the ship a little. SkyBet make the visitors strong favourites to win the game at 10/11, with a draw at 13/5 and 3/1 on the hosts picking up a victory. Its hard to argue with those odds when you consider how well Roma have played this season, though the jury is still out on the visitors as to whether or not they have what it takes to challenge Juventus all the way to the very end.
HEAD TO HEAD
These two sides have played one anther 22 times since the early 1990’s, and during that period they have only ever played out one single stalemate. When the pair last met in May they produced a 5-goal thriller in which the visitors Roma ended the day victorious. Salah set Roma on their way to victory after just 6 minutes, but two goals from Tachtsidis and Pavoletti put the hosts in front. That turned out to be a false dawn as first veteran Totti equalised and then El Shaarawy wrapped up a 3-2 win for the visitors with just 3 minutes left on the clock.
Genoa have W7-D1-L14 against Roma
As you might expect, the visitors head into the game as the form favourites after they picked up four wins, one draw and one defeat from their last six in all competitions. Genoa have lost three during that period, including their last two matches, which suggests they could be in for another disappointing afternoon tomorrow. Simeone tops scores for Genoa with 6 goals in the league this season, but the hosts could do with scoring more goals and may have to add to their squad now the transfer window has reopened. Former Man City striker Džeko is enjoying a fine campaign in front of goal for Roma, scoring 13 in the league alone and looks likely to be a key asset in their possible title success. My money is going on Roma to win this game and keep a clean sheet, with under 2.5 goals being scored.
