THE TEAM NEWS

GENOA

  • Genoa were unable to build on their win over SPAL and remain in trouble at the wrong end of the table having won just one of their last seven matches in Serie A.
  • Torino took a 1-0 lead into the break of their midweek contest and despite pushing for an equaliser, two goals in the final 15 minutes condemned Genoa to a 3-0 loss.
  • This is a critical game for Genoa who will drop into the bottom three with defeat and they will be desperate to have Francesco Cassata, Stefano Sturaro and Cristian Romero available but they must prove their fitness.

LECCE

  • Lecce had taken four points from their last two matches but they were on the wrong end of a 1-3 scoreline in their game with Fiorentina during the week which leaves them in the bottom three.
  • They were outplayed and outclassed for much of the game and found themselves three goals down at the break in the one-sided display with Evgen Shakhov’s late effort little consolation.
  • Lecce could have Filippo Falco and Gianluca Lapadula available following injuries for this potentially pivotal clash while Biagio Meccariello could also be back in the mix, although Alessandro Deiola will miss the remainder of the season.

THE PREDICTION

This is a huge game at the bottom of Serie A as Genoa host Lecce. The two teams are separated by just one point as the battle for the final relegation spot looks set to go down to the wire and the outcome of this game could have a huge impact on that. Neither side are playing particularly well but with both defences struggling, it is likely that there will be goals at either end as the pair push for what would be an important three points.
