Genoa form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Genoa so far with only 11 points returning home. The records show 1-8-9 (win-draw-lose). The loyal fans travelling with their beloved Genoa have enjoyed the stadium food more than the matches as the visitors have gone 16 consecutive matches without winning on the road. The last time three points were secured away was the Cagliari game.

Criscito and Guðmundsson scored in Genoa's previous match, the home game against Juventus that ended 2-1. Late drama in the previous game, when Criscito scored the winning goal five minutes into stoppage time to defeat Juventus. Criscito, who plays in defense, got the "man of the match" on his team with the rating 8.02. Criscito scored one goal, hit two key passes and won 5 of 9 duels.

Preceding that game, the 0-1 loss visiting Sampdoria's place.

Looking at the earlier recent performances of Genoa when being an outsider away as they are today, we find four matches with the visitors losing three times, drawing one and winning zero games.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Genoa as they have only managed to score 13 times from 18 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Genoa have conceded 32 goals on the road. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
