Fiorentina have a chance to win their second consecutive win for the Italian championship in order to avoid the not-so-good phase that they are going through since they have only one victory in the last six rounds. In their last clash, the team did not have a great performance and saw Napoli dominate the game, but showed a good defensive performance and managed to start a goalless draw away from home. As seen in the last round, the defensive system has been one of the team’s greatest strengths since it has not conceded a goal on five occasions, and is now among the six least leaked of the competition. The club is the fifth most complete, having the seventh best attack of the championship. The 4-3-3 should be the scheme used in this duel, especially Badelj in the midfield.
Analysis of Genoa
The visiting team is currently in 16th place with 13 points, after 3 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, he won out for Verona by (0-1). In the last match, lost at home to Atalanta by (1-2). Curiously, this is a team that has achieved better results outside of the home, having won 11 points as a visitor and only 2 in their stadium.

In 16 games in this competition, he suffered the first goal 7 times and never managed to turn the score.
Genoa sees the chance to play their third consecutive win in the Italian Championship, compensating for their poor performance in their domains, where they have yet to win. In the last round, the team played a balanced game against Atalanta, having opened the scoring in the first minutes, but then did not resist and ended up suffering the turn. The competition figures indicate that the team has been characterized by an inefficient attack, which did not swing the opposing net in seven matches, and is now among the five worst, also one of the least complete. As a visitor, the club owns the eighth best campaign, and in that condition has one of the three defenses less leaked. It is likely that the coach will organize the team in 3-5-2, with no major problems in the starting eleven.
