Match Preview

Genoa will look to reclaim their winning form when they host Cagliari as both sides look to steer clear of the Serie A (SA) relegation zone.
After three consecutive wins in February, Genoa lost their way with a run of four winless games (L3, D1) that saw them score just once. They currently look stagnant in 13th position and are just seven points above the bottom three with nine games to play. A win in this rescheduled fixture will help soothe the nerves of the Genoese supporters!
Cagliari aren’t faring any better – two points and one place behind their hosts and have just one win in six games (W1, D2, L3). With 16 losses in 29 games, the visitors already have the fourth-most losses in the league. Just five points separate them from the relegation zone and safety is still not guaranteed.
What makes this game interesting is the fact that Genoa have one of the worst home records in the league. However, ten out of their 12 points have come in the last six games and there are high hopes that the toughest games are behind them.
Their visitors aren’t any better away from home picking up just four wins in 14 games. A large part of the blame lies in their inability to score and they have a scoring record (12) that is better than only three other sides.
Players to watch: Goran Pandev has three goals this season, all of which came in Genoa victories.
Leonardo Pavoletti has two goals in three games and will once carry the weight of expectations for Cagliari.
Stat attack: Cagliari have won only one of their last five encounters against Genoa (W1, D1, L3).
Only Benevento (ten) have picked up fewer home points than Genoa (12) while Cagliari have an away record (15 pts) that is better than only six teams.
