Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Genoa and Torino take on each other in a postponed fixture at Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday evening. The Rossoblu did well to hold Sampdoria to a draw in the Derby della Lanterna at the weekend, and they are now on a quest to return to winning ways in the Serie A. Genoa aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Italian elite division, but beating Il Toro is easier said than done.
Torino’s displays are much better than the results, and even though they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-3 loss to Lazio, we are positive that the visitors are going to grab something from the midweek clash. A close encounter is on the cards at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw.
