Genoa – AS Roma Predictions and Preview

  • On their return to Serie A (SA), Genoa are still in search of their first home win, having lost 4-1 against Fiorentina and thrown away a two-goal lead against champions Napoli in their previous two matches in front of their own fans. Manager Alberto Gilardino was upbeat after his side’s latest defeat on Friday evening (1-0 to Lecce), praising the fact that they “fought until the very last moment” despite playing the majority of the contest with ten men.
  • Although Gilardino struggled to get results against upcoming opponents Roma as a player (W6, D6, L20), he excelled on a personal level in those encounters, scoring 12 times, the third-most goals the former Italy international scored against a single opponent. The 41-year-old will hope that record can therefore inspire his players, as the Ligurian outfit haven’t won any of their last 17 meetings with the Giallorossi (D4, L13).
  • Meanwhile, Roma boss José Mourinho will be looking for a response from his charges after they conceded a gut-wrenching late equaliser in their 1-1 draw at Torino. The Portuguese veteran will be hoping the pitch at Stadio Luigi Ferraris is better than the surface at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, which Mourinho described as “so bad that it makes the Stadio Olimpico at Roma look like a catwalk”.
  • Just as Genoa are looking to get off the mark at home in SA, Roma are looking to do so away with the capital club amassing just five points from their opening five league fixtures – their worst record for five years. That threatens to bring an end to Mourinho’s excellent personal unbeaten record against Genoa (W5, D3), a run that includes an impressive seven clean sheets.
  • Players to watch: Mario Retegui has already established himself as Genoa’s main man, with five goal involvements (G4, A1) in six games across all competitions since arriving in the summer from Boca Juniors, including the opening goal in two of his three scoring appearances. Romelu Lukaku has been in even more potent form recently, registering six goal involvements (G5, A1) in his last four games for club and country, with all five strikes coming after the 55th minute.
  • Hot stat: Roma failed to win any of their last nine away matches in all competitions when conceding the first goal (D2, L7).
