Current form — Juventus v. Genoa

The Bianconeri to pick up the pieces

Juventus will be out to extend their fine run of results lately. Massimiliano Allegri’s side suffered a couple of disappointments in their last 3 matches, as they were run over by Chelsea in a 4-0 defeat. Atalanta also proved too hard to handle, as they won 1-0, before Juventus were able to strike back last time out in a 2-0 win against Salernitana.

The Rossoblu to pick up the pieces

Genoa will enter the match hoping to finally end their dismal run of form in recent matches. Only a single point prevents Andriy Shevchenko’s side from having nothing to show for their previous 3 games. They came up short in a 0-2 defeat against Roma before drawing 0-0 with Udinese by a score. They were back on loser street last time out, when AC Milan ran out 0-3 winners.

How do the bookies see it?

Just limiting an expected defeat might be the target for Genoa here. Siding with Juventus at odds 1.28 with Mr. Green is a no-brainer in the kind of form they are displaying. Should this price be a tad low for your betting strategy, consider adding it to an accumulator.

Juventus v. Genoa — fixture history

The last match between these teams was a Serie A match back on 11 April 2021 and saw Juventus claim a 3-1 victory.

The Bianconeri have the following 7-1-2 meeting statistics with Genoa. Their past 10 encounters have largely been entertaining matches. With more than two goals coming out 7 times in these encounters, it is only natural to look for goals this coming Sunday.

Current table in the Serie A

As the current Serie A standings show us, the difference between the two teams is 14 points. Even though Genoa cannot overtake Juventus in the league standings right away, they will surely look to reduce or at least maintain the current gap. Juventus, who are in seventh with 24 points, will do their part to widen the distance to their upcoming opponents this coming Sunday.

Top marksman

Paulo Dybala has been the most prolific scorer for the home team recently. Surely, Juventus are relying on him to once again shine in their upcoming match. Meanwhile, Genoa will be looking to Domenico Criscito in the hope that he will add more goals to his current total of 2 goals in his latest games.
