Genoa vs Fiorentina Prediction & Match Preview

Genoa

Fiorentina

03 April 2021 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET Serie A Luigi Ferraris

Stadio Luigi Ferraris will host Saturday’s football game between Genoa and Fiorentina, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Serie A standings. 

The Rossoblu recorded a 2-1 win over Parma before the international break, with the team moving one step closer to securing the elite division survival. 

Genoa are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Fiorentina, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the match.

Both Cassata and Pellegrini Lu. are sidelined through injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team ahead of Saturday’s clash. 

The Viola, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Milan, and seeing that they should be fine with one point from the Genoa game as well, share of spoils is on the cards. Kokorin and Igor should be the only absentees in the away team.
