Tip Turin - Genoa
Prediction published on January 7, 2020 at 10:39 PM - Modified on January 7, 2020 at 11:40 PM
Torino are currently ninth in Serie A and host Genoa in the last sixteen of the Italian Cup. Their opponents are one from bottom in the table and a point from safety. Torino go into this game knowing a quarter final tie against either AC Milan or SPAL lies ahead of them if they can qualify. They had a poor spell of form between September and November but have had improved form since then. Torino have only one of their last five games and that was at home to SPAL. That includes a 1-0 away win at Genoa towards the end of last year. Five of their last seven Italian Cup games have been won with only one home loss in the last nine. Recent league form at home has been poor through with three losses in four matches.
Genoa have only won three league games this season and already lost ten. Their major worry is their defensive abilities or rather lack of them with 36 goals conceded in 18 league matches. Another big problem is their away form which is the worst in Serie A. They haven't won any of their nine away league games with just four draws. With 24 away goals conceded this season, they may struggle again defensively in this cup tie. That away form has been a worry for a fair while with just two wins in 34 away league games and one win in ten away Italian Cup ties. Go for Torino to get the home win here.
Key points Turin - Genoa
Torino are ten places ahead of Genoa in Serie A.
Genoa have an appalling away record with only two wins in 34 league games.
Genoa have only won one of their last ten away Italian Cup ties.
Conclusion Turin - Genoa
Torino have come through a bad patch and ninth in Serie A. They host Genoa who are in the relegation zone and have a terrible away record. The home side aren't the most consistent of sides but did recently win away at Genoa. With their opponents struggling defensively and when playing away from home, the tip here is for a Torino victory.
