Our match prediction:
Ten-man Genoa suffered a surprising defeat against struggling Carpi in the previous round (4-1), even though they were a goal in front. Lamanna proved to be a poor replacement for injured Perin, having to pull the ball from his net four times. The Grifone do not have much time to contemplate on the result, since Internazionale is coming to town. Roberto Mancini’s side achieved a vital win over the Partenopei, and are now just four points behind Roma in the overall standings. Marcelo Brozovic and Mauro Icardi finished the job in the first half, while the defenders neutralized Napoli’s offense. I Nerazzurri need to continue the winning run in their battle for a Champions League spot, but their previous two visits at Stadio Luigi Ferraris were a disaster. Even so, we expect the team from Milan will emerge victorious this time out, since they are in a far greater need of points than the hosts.
