Juventus – Genoa : Preview & Prediction
Juventus Turin lost against Naples (0-0, 2 tab 4) in the final of this Italian Cup last season after exploits against AS Rome (3-1) and AC Milan (1-1 and 0 -0). There is no doubt that the Old Lady will be revengeful and will want to lift this trophy again as in 2018. This first opponent is very well within the reach of Pirlo’s men since Genoa is only 17th in the Serie A standings and is fighting for maintenance . The Turinese, for their part, are 4th 7 lengths behind AC Milan and have just aligned 3 successes in their last 3 outings against Udinese (4-1), in Milan (3-1) and against Sassuolo ( 3-1) this Sunday. Genoa has just beaten Bologna (2-0) on the last day of Serie A after conceding a draw at home against Lazio Rome (1-1) and after losing on the lawn of Sassuolo (2-1). Destro’s partners (6 goals) eliminated Catanzaro (2-1) at home and Sampdoria Genoa (3-1) away to give themselves the right to play Juventus Turin in the Round of 16 of this Cup of Italy. A poster that seems too complicated for Genoa who has not won in Turin for 30 years !.
Juventus Turin won the last 3 duels against Genoa (2-1, 3-1, 3-1).
Juventus have lost only once in their last 16 outings.
The Old Lady is on an ongoing series of 3 successes in a row.
Genoa has only 2 successes in the last 9 days of Serie A.
Genoa, 17th and first non-relegation, should not play this Italian Cup thoroughly!
We have to go back to January 1991 to see traces of Genoa’s last victory in Turin. With 7 successes in its last 8 receptions, Juve should line up a new victory against this opponent and thus qualify for the quarter-finals of this Italian Cup.
