Our match prediction:
Roma’s sensational triumph over Napoli opened up the battle for the second position in the overall standings, while securing Juventus their fifth title in a row. The Partenopei were punished for their missed chances by Nainggolan in the dying moments of the match, and now we can say that i Giallorossi secured the Champions League Qualifications next season. Luciano Spalletti’s men won seven of their last eight encounters with the Grifone, which is why the fans expect their third consecutive league victory. Genoa are on a five-game winning streak at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, recording cleans sheets in the last two, which is why we have a tough match in prospects on our hands. I Lupi are undefeated on the road since February (W5 D1), with almost three goals per game on average in the spell, so we are tempted to back the visitors in this football match, while predicting a heavy battle to the very end.
