Genoa – Torino
Genoa welcomes Torino in a game from the last 38th round of the Italian Serie A. Here are our thoughts about this game.
Genoa are 12th in the Serie A with 41 points won so far. The Griffons have a record of 11 wins, 8 draws and 18 defeats. There was a time during the season when Genoa were in a serious danger to lose their place in the league. But with a lot of effort they managed to improve their performance and stabilize their position in the table.
In their last five matches Genoa are not showing a good form, though. They lost four of these matches and won only once – against Hellas Verona. Certainly this is not a good moment for them, but at least they are safe and they can finish this season without worries.
Torino are 10th in the Serie A with 51 points. The Bulls have a record of 12 wins, 15 draws and 10 defeats since the beginning of the season. In their last five matches Torino are also showing an inconsistency in their form – one win, two draws and two defeats. In the previous round Torino enjoyed a win, though, beating with 2-1 the visiting SPAL.
Torino started the season with ambitions to finish on a higher position, but their performance led them to the middle of the table. On theory they can finish 9th in the final standings, because they are 3 points behind Sampdoria. But they’d need to win against Genoa and Sampdoria to lose against SPAL.
We can say that this is a game between two teams with a similar quality. Torino are higher in the league standings, but Genoa have the home ground advantage here. Let’s see if they could use it to finish their season with a win.
