Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Genoa will be aiming to get their revenge on Napoli for a heavy 6-0 loss at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona when they two teams face each other at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in the Serie A round 21. The Rossoblu have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Cagliari and Crotone in the previous two league fixtures, but Napoli are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals.
Both Biraschi and Cassata are sidelined with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the home team. The Neapolitans, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-0 win over Parma. Genaro Gattuso’s troops are eager to keep their Scudetto hopes alive, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Ruiz and Mertens are sidelined with injuries.
