The Old Lady is hoping to stay unbeaten in Serie A when the reigning champions visit Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Sunday, and here you can see what is going on in our Genoa vs Juventus Preview.
Genoa Recent Form & Team News
Genoa were denied victory by a 98th-minute equalizer on Monday, but the 1-1 draw vs Fiorentina snapped their losing streak, and saw them claim their first point in five Serie A matches (D1, L4). Consequently, five of their last six SA outings have seen both teams hit the net (D2, L4), with Genoa conceding the opener in five.
There have also been goals at both ends in four of Genoa’s five home league outings this term, with the hosts losing the last three. Each of those three losses saw them trail at HT to-nil after conceding the opener twice in the tenth minute. However, the previous three H2Hs held here (W1, L2) have stood level at HT.
Player to watch: Marko Pjaca has scored each of his three SA goals this season after the break, being his team’s first goal-scorer twice.
Rolando Maran will be without Davide Biraschi (shoulder), Francesco Cassata (muscle), and Domenico Criscito (muscle). Also, Mattia Perin (muscle), Cristian Zapata (muscle), and Davide Zappacosta (muscle) are not ready to return yet.
Juventus Recent Form & Team News
Juventus are on a high after a huge 3-0 win at Camp Nou in midweek, which marked a seventh win in their last nine competitive outings (W7, D2). In their last league assignment, Juventus beat local rivals Torino thanks to two goals beyond the 75th minute – the first time in four league outings they found the net after the break (W2, D2).
It is two straight 1-1 draws on the road for Juventus in Serie A, with both matches seeing the Bianconeri netting the opener inside the first 21 minutes. The visitors have opened the scoring in five competitive away matches in a row (W3, D2), but conceded the equalizer in all three league outings, twice doing so before the break.
Player to watch: Cristiano Ronaldo has netted six goals in his last five competitive starts, with four arriving before HT.
Hot stat: There have been at least four yellow cards shown in eight of Juve’s nine SA matches this term.
Andrea Pirlo cannot count on Giorgio Chiellini (muscle), and Merih Demiral (muscle).
