Juventus host Genoa at Allianz Stadium in Serie A on Sunday, aiming for their second consecutive victory.

The Bianconeri overcame promoted side Salernitana 2-0 in midweek, courtesy of goals from Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata.

But they remain in seventh place with only 24 points from 15 games, seven off fourth-placed Atalanta, and will be looking to close the gap on them.

Genoa, meanwhile, are down in 18th place, having won only once in their campaign so far.

Davide Ballardini was also given the boot last month with former AC Milan legend Andriy Shevchenko coming in, although he's yet to oversee a victory since taking charge.

Juventus vs Genoa Head-To-Head

Juventus have won 22 of their last 32 clashes with Genoa, losing only four times, the last of which came in February 2019.

Since then, the Bianconeri have won all five of their encounters with the Ligurian outfit.
