Genoa, which was in a complete state of dumpster fire-ness the last time these two teams played in league play back in mid-December, have rebounded to the point now where relegation isn’t look as likely as it could have been four months ago. That doesn’t mean they’re coming into their second trip to Turin of 2021 — remember, there was that Coppa Italia fixture where we all got to say Hamza Rafia was the unexpected (and unwanted) hero — because they’re most definitely nothing close to on the kind...
13th place with 31 points and a -10 goal difference feels about like the ceiling for the Grifoni this year, so you have to call it a successful campaign. They’ve ground out 5 points from their past 5 outings but looked quite competent, largely on the back of the league’s 8th-best defense. They need that, because their 30 goals are the 3rd worst in the division.
