Match status: 2019/20 Serie A - Matchweek 19
Venue: Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi (Verona)

Hellas Verona can look back at their season so far and be pleased with how far they have come. Billed as potential relegation battlers, I Gialloblu have surpassed expectations and are comfortably placed 12th on the league table with 22 points from 17 games. They are also 8 points clear of the drop zone.

Genoa are in serious trouble and are in real danger of getting relegated this season. All their preseason aspirations and expectations have long since become a thing of the past and their focus now, is solely on surviving the drop this season. They are currently 19th on the log, two points above bottom placed SPAL and one point away from safety. Il Grifone really need to get their act together for the second half of the season if at all they are interested in staying up.

Verona vs Genoa Team News

Verona recorded a 2-0 victory over Serie A whipping boys, SPAL, in their last run-out. This ended a run of four games without a win and was only their second win in six league matches.

Much of Verona’s success this term can be attributed to their defensive organization. Ivan Juric’s side have conceded just 20 goals this term, the fourth best record in the league.

They have however struggled for form in front of goal, scoring just 19 goals so far. It is, however, worth noting that 8 of those 19 goals have come in the last four games!

At home, I Scaliger have not been particularly impressive, notching up just three wins out in the nine games played there so far. The remaining six matches ended in three draws and three defeats. This match against a beleaguered Genoa side would be a very good opportunity to improve on this particular record.

A win in this match could potentially see Verona move up to seventh on the log, just four points from the Europa League slots and with a game in hand too.

David Nicola’s reign as Genoa boss began on a perfect note as they secured a much needed win in their last Serie A match against Sassuolo. Goran Pandev’s late goal secured a 2-1 victory and just their third league win overall this term. Prior to this match, Genoa were on an eight game winless streak in the league with their last victory recorded as far back as October, 2010.

Il Grifone’s struggles at the back are well documented and they have conceded a league high 36 goals. They also have the worst away record in the league with zero wins in the nine games played on opposition ground so far conceding an average of 2.67 goals per game. Nicola will hope to build on victory against Sassuolo and steer Genoa to safety.

Verona: Daniel Bessa.

Verona vs Genoa Predictions

Given Verona’s decent home record and Genoa’s abysmal form on the road, backing Verona for a win would be a no-brainer. They have also found their scoring boots of late, hence you can bet on them to put a couple past a shambolic Genoa defence.
