Hellas Verona vs Genoa – Serie A Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Match Day 4 continues with Hellas Verona taking on Genoa on Monday the 19th of October, 2020, at Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi.

Hellas Verona started the season with back-to-back wins at home over Roma (3-0) and Udinese (1-0), but two weeks ago, when they visited Parma, they got caught off-guard less than 30 seconds after kickoff, conceded, and that 1-0 did not change until the final whistle. Verona had three awesome chances to score, equalize, salvage at least a point, but missed them all. Their current form reads; LWWLW. Six points for them from their first three Serie A games. Coach Ivan Juric played a 3-4-2-1 formation in Parma, with Andrea Favilli up front. Should be mentioned that they have close to 10 players unavailable, due either to injury or a positive Covid-19 test. Juric will need to… improvise, come up with solutions, and probably play some guys out of position, unless he trusts other players who don’t normally form part of the starting lineup.

A week ago, Genoa President Enrico Preziosi told reporters he was afraid that his team would forfeit several games and end up getting relegated, because of the… chaos caused by more than 15 Covid-19 cases among their players. The Lega Serie A rules are clear, a game goes ahead if a team has at least 13 players available, including one goalkeeper. Genoa have already had a game postponed, the one against Torino two weeks ago. In that case, the Lega looked… lenient, “just” postponing the game. Genoa know though that if they find themselves in the same situation, they will lose without playing. Good news for them is that this past week, half of the players who had previously tested positive, “produced” back-to-back “clear” tests, meaning that they could go back to training. At the start of the weekend, chances were the game in Verona would go ahead, as Genoa seemed to have enough players to avoid forfeiting the match. The question is, under these circumstances, can they earn something out of this game? Their current form reads; LWLWW. Three points for them from their first two games. Coach Rolando Maran told reporters on Friday something that was… sad and sort of funny at the same time: “we used to celebrate goals. Now we celebrate negative Covid-19 tests”. So true...

Last season’s Verona vs Genoa was a 2-1 win for the hosts. In the reverse fixture, Genoa won 3-0 at home.

Both teams have numerous problems, but Genoa many more and bigger than those of Hellas Verona. Under these circumstances, the hosts are presented with a good opportunity to pick up all three points.

A 1-0 victory for Hellas Verona is predicted at full-time.

Date: Monday, 19th of October, 2020.

Venue: Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi

Kick-off time: 20:45 (GMT+2).
