The fourth round of Italian Serie A will close today, 19 October 2020, when Verona will try to beat Genoa at their stadium. Will the owners be able to justify the status of a moderate favorite in this confrontation? – the answer will be given to you by the forecast prepared by our experts.
Verona started the new season of the Italian championship with two victories in a row. In the opening round, Ivan Yurich’s charges took over Roma, and the match itself ended without goals. But the Romans were later awarded a technical defeat (0: 3) due to the application of the newcomer Amadou Diavara, who came out in the starting lineup, according to the youth list of footballers.
Having received a solid present from the opponent, Verona decided to build on the starting success. In the second morning , the Mastiffs beat Udinese at home with a minimum score (1: 0), thanks to a goal from Andrea Favilli. The first failure of the hosts this season fell on the last round. Then Yurich’s team unsuccessfully went to visit Parma, where they lost with a score of 0: 1.
Midfielder Miguel Veloso and two defenders – Coray Gunther and Pavel Davidovich will not play in today’s match for Verona.
In the new season of the Italian championship, Genoa played only two matches. Rolando Maran’s charges played the match of the first round beyond praise and easily defeated the newcomer of the elite division Crotone at home (4: 1).
Then the “griffins” faced an outbreak of COVID-19 within the team, which is why the reserve squad went to the match with Napoli, which initially had no chance to score points in Naples (0: 6).
The break, connected with the matches of the national teams, came in time for Genoa. During this time, the owners’ footballers recovered from their illness and began full-fledged training. In today’s meeting, the coaching staff of the guests can count on Marco Piazza, Mattia Perin Ivan Radovanovic and Luca Pellegrini. Domenico Criscito, Davide Zappacosta and Matia Destro remained outside the application for the fight.

The upcoming match at the stadium “Mark Antonio Bentegodi” promises to be productive. Several factors favor this forecast. Verona has de facto gained an advantage over its rival, which is just recovering from massive COVID-19 infections.
It is obvious that the leading players of Genoa have not yet managed to gain optimal physical and playing condition, and another part of the key players is still in isolation. In addition, the hosts have their own personnel losses, which are associated with injuries of the leading defenders. The statistics of head-to-head meetings of rivals also speaks in favor of the “riding” fight. We believe that teams will make effective mistakes in defense, which will entail high performance in the match.
The forecast is that the total is over 2.5 goals and we bet on this with the odds of 1.84 at the Winline bookmaker .
