The action in Serie A this weekend gets underway on Friday, as two sides at the bottom end of the standings lock horns. There will be pressure on Salernitana, as they are still searching for their first league win of the season after going nine without a win.
Serie A Preview
Both Genoa and Salernitana will lock at this fixture as a perfect opportunity to get their season on track this weekend. The hosts will likely be preferred in the betting, as they have landed two victories from their opening nine matches this term. A third victory of the season would lift them up to 13th in the standings this weekend.
However, their recent form would be a clear cause for concern, as they have gone three without a victory in the Italian top flight, which includes defeats in each of their previous two. A loss this weekend could see them dragged into the bottom three places in the standings. However, Genoa hasn’t lost three matches on the bounce since March 2018.
It has been a really disappointing start to the season for Salernitana, as they have gone nine league matches without a victory over the opening months of the season. That start to the campaign sees the Italian side sit 19th in the standings, and even a victory on Friday may not be enough to lift them out of the relegation places.
Salernitana have lost three of their previous four, but they gained confidence last weekend after playing out a draw. But, their main issues have come on the road this term, as they have lost their last three away matches without finding the back of the net. They haven’t gone four away defeats without scoring since November 1998.
Genoa vs Salernitana Head to Head
Genoa’s record in this fixture would be a slight concern, as they have won just once in their last seven against their rivals. Meanwhile, Salernitana has landed three victories in 16 away matches against Genoa across the top three leagues in Italy.
Genoa vs Salernitana Prediction
This is a testing game to call this weekend, as neither side come into the fixture in good form on the field. Therefore, it could be worth siding with a draw on Sunday, as three of the previous seven at Genoa have ended level.
