Scoring goals is likely to present the biggest problem for Genoa as they prepare to hang onto the coattails of the Serie A leaders with a victory over Inter Milan.
Genoa may have a solid home record in Serie A this season, but they will have to overcome their troublesome obstacle of scoring against Inter if they harbour hopes of taking three points off the reigning champions.
They have failed to find the target in their last four meetings with Inter and have collected just three points from the previous seven clashes, which includes no victories.
Genoa are a big 3/1 to beat Inter, but they may need to clear their mind of the 5-0 home defeat they suffered against the opposition last season.
Inter are 1/1 to beat Genoa and inflict a first defeat on Gian Piero Gasperini’s men at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris this season.
However, they are currently in the middle of a scoring slump as they have managed just two goals in their last four Serie A games, which has resulted in just a single victory in this timeframe.
One of the main problems to have impacted Inter in recent games has been a spate of injuries to some of the star players.
Esteban Cambiasso and Goran Pandev are both in line to return against Genoa to provide Inter with a better balance and help keep things compact.
The game is liable to be settled by a single goal with both teams involved in low-scoring affairs of late.
Four of Genoa’s last six games have had no more than two goals, while there has been no more than a single goal in Inter’s last four games.
With Genoa strong at home, the goalless draw could be a profitable bet at 11/2, while Genoa are 7/1 to claim a 1-0 victory.
Inter are 5/1 to win 1-0. See the complete Genoa vs Inter match betting odds market.
