Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Genoa and Spal square off against each other at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in the Serie B round 26. The Rossoblu are eager to stay in the automatic promotion berth, and it has to be noted that they have suffered only one defeat at home this term. Brayan Boci limped off with injury in a 2-2 draw with Modena, with veteran defender Domenico Criscito likely to step up. Marko Pajac is yet another absentee in the home team.
The Gli Spalini, on the other hand, have been slipping down the standings week by week, and given their poor form, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. In their last meeting in the Italian top flight Genoa defeated Spal 2-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. As for the away team, there are no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to Liguria.
