Juventus vs Genoa Preview

Juventus vs Genoa

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Allianz Stadium

Date: 22nd January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Juventus are the only side that can stop Napoli from running away with the Scudetto this season as AS Roma and Inter Milan have lost their top form.

The defending Champions have dominated the league for so long that they know how to get results when it matters and it matters in this game.

Juventus come into this game on a good run of form that has seen them win 8 of their last 10 home games and their defence is currently on a good run of form.

They have conceded just 1 goal in their last 11 games leading up to this match and they have kept the most clean sheets in the league this season with 11.

This upturn in form has placed them firmly in a position to win either the Scudetto, Coppa Italia or Champions League this season.

Genoa have won on 8 of their 20 league games this season and their struggles might lead them into relegation at the end of the season.

They come into this game without a win in 70% of their away games and they have also scored just 0.5 goals per game away from home.

Genoa have lost seven and won two of their last 9 meetings with Juve but they have not recorded a win at Juve since 1991.
