Team News

  • Vargas will play at left-back since Antonelli is still injured and Moretti is suspended.
  • Delneri is shaping up a 4-3-2-1 formation with just Immobile up front, given Borriello's suspension.
  • Jankovic and Bertolacci should support the lone striker.
  • Luciano will not be available, so Corini is thinking of changing the lineup to a 4-3-1-2 with no wingers.
  • Thereau will be the trequartista, while Paloschi will play alongside Pellissier.
  • Hetemaj is back and available and will take his place back in the midfield.

Prediction

  • Genoa ended their losing streak and moved away from the bottom of the league with an unexpected victory in Bergamo, and are now tied with Chievo just outside the relegation zone. One point here would be enough to confirm that they are on form, but not enough to keep them away from danger just yet.
  • ChievoVerona have not won any of their last 4 games, failing to score against Siena and also losing in the Coppa Italia to Reggina. Corini will probably go back to the 4-3-1-2 that Di Carlo used to field, but he will need to dare a little more to get the full prize here.
  • Expect both teams to be wary of losing and start tentatively in the first half. Genoa should take control of the match as the fans will push the team forward, but in the end only few goal scoring chances will be made. In the second half the need for points may turn the match into a more interesting affair, with a chance for the substitutes to bring the points home.
