Serie A Preview: Genoa have to shift gears to defeat Internazionale

Updated: August 7, 2013

The last time Walter Mazzarri’s men and Fabio Liverani’s players battled out head-to-head was on December last year, with the match ending in a draw. Rewind a few more matches and Internazionale Milano would give Genoa a string of defeats. The draw match they had in their most recent combat was a mere pacifier for Genoa players, who are in dire need to upgrade their tactics if they do not want to fall under I Nerazzurri’s monstrous weaponry for the nth stint.


The picture is looking sadistic lately for Inter, however, having some of their matches land in defeats or draws with practically zero win. Their friendly match with Hamburger SV was an okay 1-1 draw, but their battles with Chelsea and Valencia in the International Champions Cup were bitter setbacks, scoring 2-0 and 4-0, respectively.


As for Genoa, goals were quite reluctant to lend strokes in their scoreboard, with most of their recent matches ending in 0-0 draws; including one with Bologna and another with Kalloni. They did, however, bag a goal when they fought against West Bromwich 1-0, which gave them a single win in their seemingly endless streak of draws.


While their recent individual matches appear to put Inter as the weaker party when compared to Genoa, the former’s win over I Rossoblu is relatively not a long shot. Their own history matters more than what they have endured with other teams. For supporters, football betting would seem a little easy since one of these sides has already imposed supremacy. And if their performance in the last Serie A season would be taken into consideration, predicting the winner would prove handy.


Last season gave Inter a ninth place standing in the Serie A table, eight spots higher than Genoa. The first team scored a total of 54 points while the second one accumulated 38 points. This new season, the statistics will definitely change but the results would stand still between Inter and Genoa. That is, I Nerazzurri will keep their dominance over I Rossoblu.
