The Rossoneri continued their quite poor streak this season in the Serie A. In the last match away to Fiorentina, they were completely outplayed and their certain defeat was preserved by goalkeepers Donnarumma and Begovic who were in a great mood that day.
Milan’s only goal was scored by Rebic in the 56th minute, but that wasn’t enough to win. The pressure of Fiorentina in that match was great and culminated in a penalty kick for the home team in the 85th minute. Pulgar was accurate from the white spot and set the final score in the match 1:1.
Milan’s poor games led them to seventh place in the overall standings with 36 points and now as the things stand, they will need better improvement in order to actually reach the European exit via Serie A.
The hosts will keep missing injured central defender Duarte (5/0), midfielder Krunic (9/0) and goalkeeper Donnarumma (24/0).
Genoa has provided phenomenal resistance to the high-ranked Lazio last time out. The hosts played a great match and they did not lag in any segment of the game for the favored away team.
Lazio, however, showed why they are one of the contenders for the Scudetto and did not allow a surprise in this match. The final score on the scoreboard was 2:3 for the club from the eternal city.
Genova is currently 18th in the general standings with 22 points and is in the red zone which leads to Serie B. The team must improve its game if it is to remain in the Italian football elite.
Genoa team news
The guests have midfielder Pajac (11/0) as doubtful for this one. Injured are right defender Ghiglione (20/0), midfielders Lerager (11/0) and Radovanovic (19/0).
Now well rested
Now with the virus postponing matches, both teams should be quite rested for this one. With Ibrahimovic rested and back in the attack for the home side, it’s they who should have a greater impact on this match. Genoa seems fairly fine in recent matches, but shouldn’t able to compete with the individual quality of the hosts.
