Genoa v Juventus preview: Visitors can prove cut above

The visiting Juventus side should be favourites in this visit to Genoa, as the away team holds a 43 point advantage from their 28 league games this season.

Best bookmaker betting odds:

It’s busy days for these teams as both were in action only a few days ago. There’s no rest for the wicked, or in this case; no rest for Genoa and Juventus.

Genoa form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Serie A this season. Genoa have only managed 4 wins, 1 draw and 8 losses from their games here at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Genoa, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

Genoa manager D. Nicola and his team return home after a 2-2 draw away versus Brescia (placed 19th) in the Serie A. Preceding that match was the home game against Parma that was lost 1-4.

Trouble was brewing at the score 0-2 against Brescia last time out, but a goal from Andrea Pinamonti completed a comeback to a draw result for Genoa.

The Genoa fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 15 in 13 matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Genoa defense is not exactly impregnable. 22 goals conceded from 13 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Juventus form and stats

The away team, who have the most clean sheets (11) in Serie A, have been very comfortable on their travels so far, racking up 9 wins, 2 draws and only 3 losses in the Serie A. Impressively, the visitors are on a five-match winning run which they hope continue versus Genoa. It could be a hat trick of victories away for Juventus, as they have won on their previous two travels.

Did you know that the longest clean sheet streak is 1816 minutes? This record is held by Mazaropi when he played in Vasco da Gama. Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is eager to challenge this, with his 291 minutes of keeping balls out from the net.

Juventus go into this game after a win, the home game against Lecce that ended 4-0. Prior to that result Juventus won their away game at Bologna. The scoreline was 2-0.

As you can tell from the results above, Juventus was very dominant against Lecce, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 4-0 (!) with Matthijs De Ligt, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuaín providing the goals.

After this away game Juventus return home for a Serie A game against Torino. That game is only four sleeps after this.

Juventus are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 21 times in 14 away games so far. 14 goals have been conceded by Juventus in these games.

Head 2 Head

These teams' last encounter with each other was the Juventus - Genoa 2-1 earlier this season. Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Genoa won two games, one match ended with a draw and Juventus has seven wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: four / six
