Genoa v Juventus Preview, Serie A, Sunday 16th March 2014

Genoa will be hoping their recent loss to Chievo wont effect their confidence too much as they come face to face with last years Italian Champions. Not only that but this year Juventus are currently dominating the league and haven’t lost in 19 encounters with the last coming back in October where Fiorentina beat them 4 – 2 on the night.

Juventus will be looking to continue their dominance against Genoa having only lost once in the past to their hosts. That single loss came back in 2009 when Genoa beat Juventus 3 – 2 at their home ground where Thiago Motta grabbed a brace and Raffaele Palladino pulled off an 88th minute shock winner which has now made the clubs history books.

Genoa v Juventus Team News

Genoa Team News:

Genoa maybe sitting in eleventh position in Serie A but their striker Alberto Gilardino is doing exceptionally well having scored 12 goals in his 26 matches played and has set the 31 year old up as the clubs current top scorer. Sadly for Genoa if he isn’t scoring then goals are rarely coming from anyone else with the only other notable character hitting the net is 20 year old defender Antonelli who has currently scored 3 goals this season.

Juventus Team News:

Carlos Tevez (15), Llorente (11) and 26 year old Arturo Vidal (11) are all among the clubs high scorers this season with Paul Pogba also scoring a healthy 6 goals from center midfield. There are a few others hitting the net but only 1 to 3 which is no doubt helping the team out overall.

We have also recorded 7 draws with 4 of those seeing Juventus on their travels.

Genoa: L W D D W

Juventus: D W W W W

Juventus are a team in great form right now and currently sit atop Serie A with a massive 14 points clear of their closest challengers Roma. Genoa have also been in great form as of late and have recorded a well earned draw away to Napoli as a result. They did lose last weekend however to Chievo who are themselves close to fighting for relegation survival.

Genoa v Juventus Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Sunday night Serie A action should provide us with a potential goal fest as Juventus look to secure their twentieth game unbeaten in the league this season. Genoa haven’t beaten Juventus since 2009 where the game ended 3 – 2 and even then that was only just as Genoa grabbed the winner in the 88th minute of the game. That being said it is also their only win against the champions where as Juventus have beaten their opponents 19 times in the past.

Genoa do however have some hope with their confidence possibly on the up after a decent run in their last 5 games. Although they did end their recent game with a loss to lowly side Cheivo they can only hope to attempt to keep the rampant Juventus at bay for 90 minutes. Juventus however will be looking at this game for a guaranteed three points and I can’t see them getting too complacent in that attempt.

My prediction for this game will of course see Juventus come out winners in one way or the other and due to their opponents I feel a midfielder could grab a well earned goal on the night. So with that my first will be for Arturo Vidal to score and Juventus to win. The next I am going for is Juventus to win by a 2 goal margin which could well be on the money given the circumstances.
