Both teams have been in good form in Serie A in their recent fixtures. Genoa have scored eight goals in their last six games. Verona have the same recent record.

The hosts have been very strong defensively in their recent outings and have five clean sheets from their last six games. Meanwhile, Verona have had no clean sheets from their recent handful of games.

We believe Genoa will continue their fine form at both ends of the pitch and come out as the winner in this fixture.
