Genoa – Crotone : Preview & Prediction
Since Davide Ballardini has sat on the bench, 4 of the 10 points have come on the table, after the victory on the field of Crotone and the unexpected draw achieved with Roma. Lucky the Romagna coach, who has to thank De Rossi, rewarded with a red card and a penalty transformed by Lapadula. The Crotone lasted only once at the “Allianz Stadium”, Juventus field, before falling under the blows of Mandzukic, De Sciglio and Benatia. Of course we could not do better, but the ranking of the Calabrian is even better than last year, while Genoa lives another difficult situation, but it seems to be able to get out. In the Italian Cup the two teams eliminated with an equal 2-1 respectively Cesena and Piacenza. Turn-over is obligatory for Ballardini, who has a delicate match against Verona on Monday: a space in Pellegri, who takes back the attacking position next to Pandev. Certainly not even Davide Nicola will disappear in view of the other clash with Udinese, so Budimir, who is disqualified, will play in front with Stoian and Izco in support.
Only one point separates Genoa and Crotone in the Serie A standings.
The Ligurians have already won 4 points in 2 games with Ballardini on the bench.
The Calabres have suffered 18 goals away, the worst outside defense of the Serie A.
Genoa’s victory last November 19 is the third in the last 4 direct fights.
The fact that Genoa could not express on the field the technical qualities of his squad was quite evident, but now with Ballardini on the bench the team runs well and it will be really difficult for the Croton to prevent the Griffon finally regain its fans.
