Four successive Serie A (SA) defeats by margins of at least two goals sees Genoa start the final round of 2021 in the bottom three, and with just one league win all season (D7, L10) they’ll be glad to see the back of this calendar year. Each of their four recent defeats saw them trail ‘to nil’ at half-time, which is hardly surprising given they’ve scored a paltry two first-half SA goals all season!
⚽️ HERE GENOA ⚽️
Lamenting the league’s worst home record this term (D3, L5), Genoa haven’t won a home SA game since April (D3, L7). They’ve now scored just once across their last four league matches here, but will hope they can take some confidence from beating fellow SA strugglers Salernitana 1-0 in midweek cup action at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
⚽️ HERE ATALANTA ⚽️
Title hopefuls Atalanta were hammered 4-1 by Roma in their last SA outing, their 12th game in a row to feature scoring before half-time. They’ll expect to bounce back immediately here as they’re unbeaten in five H2Hs (W3, D2) and haven’t lost consecutive league games since October 2020.
However, although they won on their last two visits, they were pushed hard before prevailing by one-goal margins. Unbeaten in SA away games since March (W12, D3) and the only team in Europe’s ‘top five’ leagues yet to lose a league game on the road this term (W8, D1), Atalanta will likely see this as a great opportunity to end the year on a high and boost their title ambitions.
🔑 KEY PLAYERS 🔑
Genoa captain Domenico Criscito has bagged five league goals this term – all were penalties and four were scored after the 75th minute. Meanwhile, Atalanta’s Teun Koopmeiners has scored between the 55th and 65th minute in each of his last two league outings.
