2023/24 Italian Serie A
Genoa CFC v SSC Napoli
Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris
Saturday, 16 September 2023
Kick-off is at 19h45
Genoa CFC will take on a wounded SSC Napoli side in an Italian Serie A
match at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris on 16 September.
The Il Vecchio Balordo (The Old Fool) suffered a 1-0 loss to Torino FC away on 3 September and it was their second defeat in their last three matches in the league.
Genoa are also winless in their last two matches at home, having recorded two consecutive defeats at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
Meanwhile, Napoli succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to SS Lazio at home on 2 September and the defeat ended their five-match unbeaten run in Serie A.
The Little Donkeys are undefeated in their last two matches on the road, having registered one victory and one draw as the visitors
Genoa’s trio of Ridgeciano Haps, Junior Messias and Alessandro Vogliacco are currently injured, but the Old Fool have no suspension concerns.
On the other hand, Napoli also do not have suspension worries but they will be without Pierluigi Gollini, who is expected to make his return from injury later this month.
"We lacked speed when turning the ball around and Lazio closed behind. But we needed to have greater clarity in the scoring phase because we had a lot of opportunities to score," Napoli star Matteo Politano said after their clash against Lazio.
"Unfortunately we conceded a goal on their first chance and then in the second half we missed too many passes. There's a lot of work to be done, this isn't the real Napoli "
"After the break, we will be able to recover all our energy and show our real value also because we will have many appointments "
Napoli thrashed Genoa 3-0 in their last meeting in the league which was on 15 May 2022 at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
As a result, the Little Donkeys are undefeated in their last two matches in the Serie A against the Old Fool, having recorded two successive victories.
