Team Form

 

Genoa

Contrary to what the majority has expected, the brave Genoa pulled off an impressive performance during their Napoli encounter.

 

Despite Gonzalo Higuain’s attempt to secure Napoli’s victory, Genoa’s Emanuele Calaio has successfully netted a goal several minutes before the final whistle, much to the disappointment of Napoli supporters. What is even worse was the fact that Calaio was actually one of the Partenopeis, but is on loan to Genoa. Indeed, he let his parent club have a taste of their own bitter medicine.

 

Sitting at the 11th spot of the table, Genoa maintain an undefeated streak in five (5) of its last six (6) matches.

 

Catania

Catania’s encounter with Chievo Verona ended in their ultimate fall into the relegation zone. The latter kept them at bay and scored two (2) goals to ensure their temporary safety in the competition.

 

Rolando Maran and his boys are in dire need of major improvements. Five (5) of their last six (6) matches showcased a parade of poor displays and disappointments on the pitch. Unable to score, they fell victim their respective opponents. But not only that, the club also seemed to suffer in their away form. As a matter of fact, nineteen (19) of their most recent away matches ended in their defeat.

 

Catania is now on the 19th spot of the Serie A table and struggles for survival.

 

Prediction: Genoa

Genoa has only won once against Catania. However, it seemed that the result of their upcoming match, given their current performance, will deviate from what has been normally expected.
