Our football match prediction:
Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris will host Wednesday’s football match between Genoa and Chievo. Following a goalless draw with Sassuolo, Genoa suffered three straight losses to the likes of Juventus, Udinese and Lazio in the national championship and they are eager to give fans some cheer. The Rossoblu are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that they faced a tough fixture list, we are tempted to put our money on Ivan Juric’s men. Chievo, on the other hand, did well to hold Atalanta to a 1-1 draw at the weekend and it has to be noted that the Mussi Volanti could have picked up all three points from the game. Anyhow, Chievo face a difficult task in Wednesday’s clash against Genoa and they are widely expected to return home empty-handed. It has to be noted that Genoa are after their first win over Chievo since 2015.

The prolific attacker netted 12 goals in 35 matches for the Rossoblu in the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign and, as a result, Fiorentina chiefs decided to sign him at the end of the season.
