Match Preview

Will Genoa and AC Milan rise above the absence of Krzysztof Piątek and Gonzalo Higuaín, that robs this Serie A (SA) fixture of a combined 37% league goals (19 of 51)?
Genoa are seven points above the bottom-three, but have won just once in their last 13 SA games since October 2018 (W1, D5, L7). Only two sides have conceded more league goals than Genoa (35), who have kept just three clean sheets.
All three were managed at home, where Genoa have picked up 80% of their SA points (16 of 20) this season. However, they have won just once at home since October 2018 (W1, D4, L2), keeping just one clean sheet.
Milan remain on the periphery of the top-four, but have drawn four of their last eight SA games (W2, D4, L2). Three of those were goalless draws, with Milan scoring just five goals during this run. However, their defence remains the sixth-best in SA this season.
It gets better away from home, as Milan have the joint-second best away defence (eight conceded) this season. Only in one of their nine SA trips did they concede more than one goal, but dropped points in seven (W2, D5, L2).
Players to watch: Christian Kouamé is Genoa’s second-best scorer this SA season with three goals and three assists.
Patrick Cutrone (MIL) has four goals in his last ten club games.
Stat attack: Seven of Genoa’s last ten SA games saw both teams score (BTTS).
Eight of Genoa’s last ten SA H2H home matches have seen under 2.5 match goals.
The last time Genoa failed to score in consecutive SA home games was in April 2017.
Seven of Milan’s nine SA away games have seen under 2.5 match goals.
The last time Milan drew four consecutive SA away games was in May 2017.
The last time Milan fired three consecutive SA away blanks was in January 2005.
