Napoli vs Genoa: Match Preview and Prediction

Napoli vs Genoa: In the last four Serie A home games, Napoli has won three and drawn one. After losing to Atalanta 1-4 at home, Genoa travels to Naples. The previous six head-to-head meetings between Napoli and Genoa have all resulted in three goals or more.

Genoa lost 1-4 to Atalanta last Sunday, snapping an eight-game winning streak. The guys at Alberto Gilardino will have a difficult task ahead of them as they try to immediately recover. On Saturday afternoon in Matchday No. 25, they journey to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona to play the reigning champions Napoli.

Last Saturday, Genoa put on one of their worst defensive performances in a long time. They suffered a hard loss to Atalanta, allowing nine shots on goal. Prior to this, Rossoblu had only let up two goals in four league games. Is it possible for them to maintain silence in Naples’ rear?

Napoli too has a bad start. They lost 0-1 at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and couldn’t threaten AC Milan. In the last four games, Napoli has only won once in all competitions. They fell to eighth in the league. Roma, sixth, is three points behind. Napoli cannot afford another blunder to keep their European ambitions alive.

Napoli vs Genoa: Betting Analysis

The teams split the points in the rematch, which took place at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris in mid-September of last year, ending in a 2-2 draw. In Napoli’s last 24 home games versus Genoa, there have been 12 victories, 9 draws, and just 3 losses. All six previous head-to-head meetings between these rivals ended with three goals or more.

In their last four home league games, Napoli have won three and tied one. The three wins were all 2-1. Walter Mazzarri’s main offensive weapon, Victor Osimhen, has returned, which is great. With the 2024 AFCON final loss six days earlier, the Nigerian striker should play Saturday. Genoa’s defense struggled against Atalanta last weekend. Rossoblu also struggles in Naples. The only rational bet is for the home team to win. The odds of backing it are 1.60.

With the Over 2.5 goals FT selection at 2.10 odds, the value is excellent. In each of the last six games between Napoli and Genoa, there have been three goals or more. The run includes the 2-2 draw at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris this season. Additionally, Napoli has scored three goals or more in four of their last five home games.
