The hosts come into the game on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat away to Sassuolo on Saturday. Domenico Berardi scored the match-winner in the 54th minute.
Genoa shared the spoils in a six-goal thriller against Verona on home turf. Mattia Destro scored a late brace to seemingly put the hosts on their way to victory before Nikola Kalinic scored a last-gasp equalizer for Verona.
The game is a relegation six-pointer between two sides who are battling to avoid an early relegation scrapfight. The hosts currently occupy the bottom spot in the standings with one point from six matches.
Genoa are slightly better off in 16th place and have garnered five points from six games. This puts them just one point above the dropzone.

Salernitana vs Genoa Prediction
The two sides have been in poor form this season but Salernitana's struggles have been more dire. The hosts have not played to the standards expected and unless there is a quick turnaround, they could be set for an immediate return to Serie B.
Genoa's defensive struggles are well documented but Salernitana might not be able to adequately capitalize on this flaw. We are predicting a comfortable victory for Davide Ballardini's side with goals at both ends.
Prediction: Salernitana 1-3 Genoa
