AS Roma v Genoa CFC - Coppa Italia
Roma host Genoa in Serie A on Sunday

Roma will welcome Genoa to the Stadio Olimpico in their penultimate Serie A match of the 2023-24 campaign on Sunday. This is the last home game for the capital club and they'll look to register a win in this match.

The hosts have endured a poor run of form and are winless in their last five games in all competitions. They met Atalanta in their previous league outing on Sunday, suffering a 2-1 away loss. Lorenzo Pellegrini scored the consolation goal from the penalty spot in the second half after Charles De Ketelaere's two-minute brace in the first half gave Atalanta a comfortable lead.

The visitors are unbeaten in their last three league games and recorded a 2-1 home win over Sassuolo on Sunday. Milan Badelj equalized in the 57th minute and a Marash Kumbulla own goal helped them overturn the deficit.

The hosts are still in contention for a direct spot in the UEFA Champions League next season but will need to win their two remaining games and hope that Atalanta drop points.

Roma vs Genoa Head-to-Head

The two teams have a long-standing rivalry and have crossed paths 123 times in all competitions. As expected, the hosts have dominated proceedings against their northern rivals with 59 wins. The visitors have got the better of the capital club 38 times and 26 games have ended in draws.

Genoa recorded a thumping 4-1 home win in the reverse fixture in September, their first win against the hosts since 2014.

Roma vs Genoa Prediction

The Giallorossi are winless in their last five games in all competitions, conceding two goals apiece in four games in that period. They are unbeaten at home against the visitors since 1990, keeping three clean sheets on the trot, and will look to keep that unbeaten streak alive.

The Grifone have been in good touch recently, suffering just one loss in their last eight league games. They are unbeaten in their last four away games, though three games have ended in draws.

While Roma have struggled in their recent games, considering their recent record in this fixture, they are expected to eke out a narrow win.
