Our prediction for this Serie A match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris when Genoa and Fiorentina take on each other in the Serie A in what is expected to be the most interesting clash of Sunday’s program. The Rossoblu seem to be on the top of their game ahead of the visit of Viola and many people believe that they are going to keep their 100% record in the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign intact. Genoa scored exactly three goals in each of their previous two games in the national championship and we predict that the hosts are going to find the net against Fiorentina. The Viola recorded their first win of the season against Chievo and, no doubt, they regained a much-needed confidence. Taking everything into account, both teams to score bet appears on the cards. In their previous meeting at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris the two teams played out a goalless draw, but both Genoa and Fiorentina should find the net this time out.
