Our match prediction:
High-flying Napoli will be looking to record their fifth consecutive win in all competitions when they take on Genoa at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday evening. The Partenopei recorded a routine 3-1 win over Bologna at their Stadio San Paolo at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the clash against the Rossoblu. Genoa are a real force to be reckoned with at home, meaning that the Neapolitans will have to be at their sharpest if they are to pick up all three points from Wednesday’s football match. In their last meeting in Genoa the two teams played out a goalless draw and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. Taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the horizon. Summer signing Milik has been scoring goals for fun of late and he will be the man to watch in the away side.
