Juventus – Genoa Prediction and Preview

  • A meagre six points from their last seven Serie A matches (W1, D3, L3) has seen Juventus surrender second place to Milan, who they now trail by a single point. With a ten-point cushion to fifth-placed Roma, Massimiliano Allegri’s men needn’t sweat just yet, but they will be eager to stop this recent rot to ensure they don’t get dragged into a battle simply to finish in the top four.
  • Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Atalanta marked the fourth consecutive home league match (W1, D2, L1) in which Juventus failed to keep a clean sheet, which is their longest such streak since the end of the 2021/22 season. Juve fans are growing uneasy amidst their current struggles and voiced their discontent by booing their side last weekend, which was something Allegri admitted didn’t help their performance.
  • Back-to-back defeats, including a 3-2 loss at home to Monza in the last round, saw Genoa suffer as many reversals as they did in their previous 12 matches, with their run for a top-half finish slowing. With a nine-point cushion to the relegation zone, Alberto Gilardino’s side are currently in no real danger of being sucked into the battle to beat the drop, so some may argue they’re simply now playing for pride.
  • With only three away league victories to their name this season (D4, L7), they’re unlikely to salvage much pride on the road, but don’t discount them as only one of their last six such games ended in defeat (W2, D3). Stoking further belief of an upset, Genoa have avoided defeat in three of their five away outings against current top-nine sides (W1, D2, L2), so they could feel confident of ending an unpleasant series of ten losses in the last eleven competitive H2Hs at Juventus (D1).
  • Players to watch: Arkadiusz Milik scored his sixth competitive goal for Juventus this term when he struck against Atalanata, four of which arrived after the break. That is also the period when Albert Gudmundsson netted during the last two H2Hs, with each serving to make the score 1-1.
  • Hot stat: Nine of Juventus’ 14 home league matches this season have seen less than three goals scored.
