Genoa-Juve, everything you need to knowMarch 15, 2019
After the triumphant week that brought Juve to the Champions League quarter-finals, the bianconeri are ready to return to the field in the league. In the 28th matchday of Serie A, Allegri's team, first in the standings at +18 from Napoli, will face the trip to Genoa: against, in Sunday's lunch match, there will be Cesare Prandelli's Genoa, who had stopped Ronaldo and comrades at the Stadium on the 1-1 in the first leg.
When and at what time do Genoa-Juventus play?
The match between Genoa and Juventus, valid for the 28th day of the Serie A championship, will be played at the Luigi Ferraris stadium in Genoa on Sunday 17 March, kick-off at 12.30.
Where is it possible to watch Genoa-Juventus?
The game will be broadcast by DAZN.
How many precedents are there between the two teams?
It will be the number 104 challenge in the history of Genoa and Juventus, which, as mentioned, have already faced each other by drawing 1-1 (to Ronaldo, on that occasion, Bessa replied). Juve is the team against which the rossoblùs have lost more games (62) and suffered more goals (211) in Serie A, although the most recent precedents at Ferraris leave some hope for Criscito and companions. The two teams, in fact, in the last five challenges in Genoa have alternated in winning, with the rossoblùs that have conquered the three points both in 2016 and 2014. It is from 2012, however, that the Genoese do not remain unbeaten in both races of the championship against Juve. In the 51 challenges played at Marassi, 18 were Genoa's successes, 22 were the Juventus ones.
What is the form of the two teams?
Genoa and Juve arrive at the match of the 28th day in a state of decidedly opposite form. If the Bianconeri are still euphoric for having overturned Atletico Madrid in the Champions League this week and can enjoy a comforting +18 over Napoli second, the rossoblùs are experiencing a rather complicated period. A single victory against Lazio, in fact, from February 17th to today in the league, which was followed by two disappointing draws (against Chievo and Frosinone) and the defeat of the last day against Parma. Results that keep Genoa, thirteenth, still among the teams in the running for salvation, with a +9 on the third last Bologna that still does not give sufficient certainty to Prandelli. For its part, Juve is a sentence far from the Stadium: Allegri's team is unbeaten in 26 external league games, a record for the Bianconeri in their Serie A history.
Which players can be protagonists?
The great expectation is, once again, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese, second top scorer in Serie A, is back from the incredible hat-trick that dragged Juventus against Atletico Madrid and has a great desire to do well, also considering that he has not scored in the last two league games. In Genoa there should also be room for Paulo Dybala, who only entered the final in the Champions League: the Argentine scored five goals in six matches against Genoa in Serie A, including his first hat-trick in the championship, right at Ferraris in August 2017 The rossoblùs are waiting for answers from Antonio Sanabria: the Paraguayan, after the three goals scored in four races at the beginning of his second Italian adventure, has not found the net in the last three matches, in which Genoa has always remained dry.
