Playing at home is not helping Genoa

A run of one win, seven draws and ten defeats has put Genoa in a very dangerous position in the relegation zone. In addition, the Rossoblu have not won a game since their only win in the third round away to Cagliari. That winless run was extended in the last round when they lost 3-1 to Lazio. On the positive side, Genoa scored for the second time in a row for the first time in six matches. 

However, boss Andriy Shevchenko has still not found any solutions for his team’s defensive misery. To point out, the Rossoblu conceded ten goals in their last four games and it’s the first area that should be improved against Atalanta, who possess one of the strongest attacks in Serie A. Still looking for their first win at Luigi Ferraris Stadium, Genoa need the performance of their lives to overcome Atalanta.

Atalanta to keep their hopes for the Scudetto alive

Atalanta’s ten-match unbeaten run came to an end in the last round as they lost to 4-1 AS Roma in Bergamo. That was La Dea’s third defeat in Serie A at the Gewiss Stadium this season and the second in their last five matches in all competitions. Certainly, boss Gasperini is feeling the heat and his team seem to be showing some signs of fatigue after a very congested schedule.

Still looking for his first trophy with Atalanta, Gasperini needs his team to regroup and play all out for the win in Genoa. Surely, having the best away record in Serie A will give La Dea the needed confidence. However, recent head-to-heads prove that this is not an easy fixture as two of the last three matches between these two ended in draws. In addition, Gasperini wants his team to stay in contention to battle for the Scudetto. Thus Atalanta will be on the offensive from the get go.

Genoa vs Atalanta Prediction 

Atalanta are expected to bounce back from their latest defeat by Roma. Obviously, Gasperini was outsmarted by Mourinho as we expected it would be a battle between the two tacticians. As Atalanta struggled to break down Roma’s defense and they were slow in transition. They can’t expect to win against Genoa with similar performance.

Nevertheless, odds of 1.44 is what the bookies are offering for an away win. Hence we have to look for a more profitable bet. And one market stands out for this fixture and that is the over 2.5 goals. To illustrate, Genoa’s three of their last four games saw over 2.5 goals.

On the other side, Atalanta’s last four games were full of goals. In fact, only one of La Dea’s last nine games saw just one goal and that was their away win over Juventus.

As a result, we will back over 2.5 goals for this match for our first prediction. And for our second, we will back Atalanta to score two goals in a row.
