Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following three consecutive defeats to the likes of Napoli, SPAL and Sampdoria, Genoa defeated Crotone on the road on Matchday 14 and, to make things even better for the fans, they managed to hold Roma to a 1-1 draw at the weekend. The Rossoblu regained a much-needed confidence and thanks to the draw with the Gialorossi they escaped the relegation zone. Genoa, though, need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure yet another Serie A survival and we predict they will go for a win in Monday’s football match against Atalanta. The Orobici have yet to find their best form in the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign and playing on three fronts seems to be the key problem for the club. Seeing that Davide Ballardini’s men have been in a fine form of late, we believe that they are going to grab something from the closing match of day 16.
