Napoli vs Genoa Match Preview
Napoli are still not completely guaranteed to finish second in Serie A this season and will hope to cement that position by beating Genoa.
For a few months now, it has looked as though the Neapolitan club could only be runners-up to Juventus in the Italian top flight, but with seven points to spare over Inter Milan after a shock midweek defeat away to struggling Empoli it is not absolutely cut and dried.
The gap was reduced because Inter won 4-0 away to Napoli’s next opponents, Genoa, which was a surprisingly poor result for a team who have taken four points against Juventus this term.
But there was mitigation for Genoa in that they had defender Cristian Romero sent off when the score was only 1-0 and they had to sacrifice striker Antonio Sanabria in order to solidify at the back with the introduction of Davide Biraschi.
Usually, Cesare Prandelli’s side are much more difficult to break down and five of their last six away matches have contained two goals or fewer.
We do not anticipate the Rossoblu being drubbed twice in one week and will back them to ensure that if they do succumb to defeat in Naples, it is by no more than a one-goal margin.
