Genoa vs Inter Milan build-up, pre-match team news & previous line-ups:
The Nerazzurri entered last weekend’s Milan derby off the back of a 1-1 draw with Lazio, and they were made to pay for some slack defending at the back, with 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic netting a first-half brace to secure the bragging rights (and the points) for his side.
Defeat at the San Siro was followed up by a 2-2 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Wednesday, but it could have been back-to-back losses for Antonio Conte’s side were it not for a 90th-minute equaliser from Romelu Lukaku.
So, Conte now finds himself in unfamiliar territory: winless in three. But, the Italian tactician can take some solace from Inter’s recent form against this weekend’s opponents, boasting four successive Serie A wins over Genoa with an aggregate scoreline of 16-0.
Indeed Genoa have not scored in their last two league outings either, which includes a 6-0 defeat inflicted by Napoli, and they find themselves in 11th place. Inter conversely are up in sixth and will be eyeing up maximum reward at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium to get their season back on track.
- Genoa (vs Verona): Perin; Bani, Zapata, Masiello; Ghiglione, Rovella, Badelj, Radovanovic, Czyborra; Pandev, Shomurodov.
- Inter Milan (vs Monchengladbach): Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Kolarov; Darmian, Barella, Vidal, Perisic; Eriksen, Lukaku, Sanchez*.
Milan Skriniar, Ashley Young, Roberto Gagliardini and Andrei Radu are all out of this fixture, while Alexis Sanchez is a doubt having picked up a slight knock in the midweek Champions League tie with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Alessandro Bastoni is expected to return to Conte’s back-three having missed the Milan derby last week, while Achraf Hakimi is also available. Genoa remain without a number of players.
Players to watch:
- Genoa: Inter are expected to be the busier of the two teams in the final third this weekend, which will call Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin into action frequently throughout the encounter. The Juventus loanee became the first Genoa goalkeeper to make 10 saves in a single Serie A game since Alessio Scarpi (in 2009) last time out against Verona. His exploits between the sticks culminated in a first clean sheet of the season, and he will be looking to perform similar heroics when Lukaku and co. take to the turf. Were he to deny the Belgian and his teammates, then Perin register his 50th clean sheet for Genoa in Serie A.
- Inter Milan: Indeed Perin can expect a busy evening against Inter, and as mentioned, Romelu Lukaku will likely be the most prominent performer in his penalty area. With six goals in five games this season across all competitions for Inter, Lukaku is currently operating at a world class level, and his record against Genoa should stand him in good stead heading into Saturday’s clash. He boasts his best goal average in the league between Serie A and Premier League against Genoa (four goals in two games) and netted two in this exact fixture in July.
