Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Empoli, Verona will look to climb to the top half of the table when they host Genoa to their Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. The Mastini are on a three-game winless run, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Rossoblu. Serbia international Darko Lazovic faces race against clock to be fit for the match, while all Dawidowicz, Frabotta, Lasagna, and Pandur are definitely out of contention with injuries.
Genoa, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Torino before the international break, and they managed to get one. The Rossoblu regained a much-needed confidence, but given their poor away record, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the home side. Ostigard is banned for the visitors, while both Cambiaso and Vanheusden miss out with injuries.
