Hellas Verona welcomes Genoa

Hellas Verona welcomes Genoa in another game from the 19th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s examine this game in our


Hellas Verona can be very content with their performance so far, because they are currently 11th in the league with 22 points. The season is still far from over, but if they keep this level of performance they will be in the Serie A for at least one more season.

Last week Verona celebrated their 6th win for the campaign. Ivan Juric’ team visited SPAL at the Stadio Paolo Mazza and won the match with 2-0. The veteran Giampaolo Pazzini opened the score after an assist from Darko Lazovic, while the substitute Mariusz Stepinski finished the job with a goal in the second half. It was a fine performance by Hellas Verona.

Genoa are once again hopeful after their first win from a lot of time. Last week the Griffoni won for a first time since the arrival of the new manager Davide Nicola. Genoa hosted Sassuolo at the Luigi Ferraris and won the match with 2-1. Domenico Criscito opened the score with a goal from a penalty kick, while Goran Pandev clinched the win with a late winner in the 86th minute.

Davide Nicola is the third manager who leads Genoa this season. He replaced the sacked Thiago Motta who was unable to provide results at the job. Davide Nicola is a former player for Genoa, so he’s fully aware with the atmosphere in Genova. So far he’s doing good, but he still has a lot of work to do.

In our football tips tonight we believe that it won’t be an easy catch for Hellas Verona, because Genoa are progressing under their new manager. We still regard Verona favourites here, but we warn you about the Griffoni.
