Genoa vs Roma Match Preview
It took a little time, but Claudio Ranieri has now got Roma on a strong run of form and they are fancied to boost their Champions League qualification hopes by beating Genoa.
Ranieri replaced Eusebio Di Francesco as manager on March 8 and after a fairly inauspicious start, straight on the back of his failed stint with Fulham this season, the Leicester City title-winner has now guided Roma to 10 points from the last 12 available in Serie A.
It means the Giallorossi went into this weekend right in the thick of a six-way battle for two Champions League places in addition to those claimed by top duo Juventus and Napoli, with seven points covering the next six clubs in the table.
A real dogfight will ensue over the concluding four rounds of matches this season, but this trip to Genoa looks a good chance for Roma to help their cause up against out-of-sorts opposition.
Genoa have lost their way recently because they simply do not score enough goals, the problem being that they sold star striker Krysztof Piatek to AC Milan in January and have been unable to replace his output, slipping dangerously close to the relegation zone.
Cesare Prandelli’s team should stay up and bizarrely their only win in the last 10 games was against champions Juventus, but Roma will be feeling more confident after three victories out of four and are backed to return to the capital with three points.
