After a run of few unreliable performances, Roma finally woke up and looked much more serious few days ago when the team visited Sassuolo and took 3:0 victory. However, it has to be said that the home players weren’t completely outplayed and have surely deserved to score a goal at least, while the team from capital finally looked more sure in offensive part of the game.
Victory came after goals from Doumbia, Florenzi and Pjanic, as the team continues to be third placed side in Serie A, having two points less than their biggest rivals Lazio. Difference between second and third placed side will be huge in the end, as the second one gets direct ticket to Champions League and avoids early preparations later for the next season. This means that the team has to continue with positive performances and victories, as they surely aim to do today. They will miss central defender Leandro Castan, defensive midfielder Kevin Strootman (7/0) and full right back Maicon (14/1) all due injuries. Neither of these three playing a huge role this season for the home side.
Genoa, on the other side, comes from a 3:1 victory on the road against Milan, in a game where the visiting side showed a lot of courage and deservedly took all three points. They weren’t those who held the ball more to their feet, but instead of it, stood very well in the defense and always looked very concrete when they had the ball possession.
Bertolacci opened the lead in 36th minute, while Niang increased their lead at the start of the second half. Hosts replied, but also stood couple of minutes later with a man less, while the visiting side had a bit easier game from then on. Finally, from a penalty kick they increased the lead to two goals difference via Falque in last moments of the game. Anyhow, the team now stands just a point below Sampdoria and has every chance to get the Europa League ticket till the end of the season, but is close to a must win situation here. Only injury worry for them will be offensive midfielder Diego Perotti (27/4).
Open game is expected here, with both teams aiming a victory. Roma remains favorite, but Genoa is playing also very well in offense and should be able to make enough goalscoring chances to make this game as interesting as possible.
