Juventus News and Form
When will Juventus fail to win a league match? No-one has stopped them in their opening eight games of the season and that includes second-placed Napoli and fourth-placed Lazio who have both failed against them already. Juventus have scored at least two goals in each of their four home games in the league this season.
With an eye on a Champions League return next week we are looking at a Juventus 2-0 correct score option at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). They took a comfortable 3-1 win over second-place Napoli in their last home game.
Four of their eight wins in the league this season have been by a 2-0 scoreline so there is a trend there. Cristiano Ronaldo has made a solid start for them but probably not quite as prolific as the club and fans would have hoped.
Still, we aren’t going to oppose him as the 2/1 first goalscorer favourite for the match* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). The other sensible option for the game from a betting perspective is probably Juventus to win to nil.
Genoa News and Form
Genoa are charged with a tricky return to action then. They lost 3-1 at home against Parma just before the international break which leaves them at W4 D0 L3 for the season. Two of those three wins have been away from home. Their away success came against Frosinone, the side currently second from bottom in the table. Genoa actually haven’t been a goal-shy side, they have done well going forward and are the current top scorers in the bottom half of the table.
The problem is, they have the joint third-worst defensive record in the entire league. Still, we are going under 2.5 goals at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). In their three league defeats alone this season they have conceded twelve goals. There is a clear trend with them. They have lost all of their games against sides currently in the top half of the table. They have won all games against sides currently in the bottom half.
Juventus v Genoa Head to Head
These two met three times last season and Juventus won all meetings across Serie A and the Coppa Italia. They are currently on a four-match winning streak against Genoa. At home they have won their last five in a row in Serie A against Genoa, not conceding a single goal in any of those games. Both teams have scored in just two of the last eleven meetings.
Who will win – Juventus v Genoa Predictions
Business as usual it is likely to be for Juventus as they continue to outclass the rest of the division. There is Champions League action coming up in the week, so we can see them conserving. A comfortable 2-0 win here looks solid.
