Our football match prediction:
Against all odds, Inter failed to advance to the Europa League last 32, but they gave fans some cheer on Thursday evening as they defeated Sparta Prague in their final group game. The Nerazzurri regained a much-needed confidence and, one thing is for sure, they will be fully focused on the national championship in the remainder of the season. Stefano Pioli’s men aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Inter and we predict that the hosts will go all guns blazing at Genoa in Sunday’s football match. The Rossoblu produced their best performance of the season on game week 14, with the team rolling over title holders Juventus at their Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, but the team’s away record is anything but good. Genoa suffered three defeats in previous four away fixtures. The Rossoblu obviously struggle on the travels and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed.
