Genoa vs Napoli build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

A 12-game winless streak (which included eight defeats) that dominated the early part of this season is slowly becoming a distant memory for Genoa, who come into this game on a four-game unbeaten run including winning their last two Serie A matches on the bounce. Consequently, picking up 10 points from 12 available has seen them move six points away from the relegation places, and their current home form is strong. Davide Ballardini’s men are without defeat in four games at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, across that run both Milan (2-2) and Lazio (1-1) left with just a point. Their defence has been stellar of late, too, holding Bologna (2-0) and Cagliari (1-0) at bay though Napoli are a different kettle of fish.

Gennaro Gattuso’s side are chasing a Champions League spot with their championship aspirations currently on the backburner given they’re nine points behind leaders Milan, albeit with a game in hand. Talks of a managerial change have quelled in recent weeks after Napoli picked up three wins across four league outings; the only setback was a 3-1 loss at Hellas Verona which came soon after putting six past Fiorentina without reply. On the road it’s been up and down this season: four consecutive wins to start made way for back-to-back losses at Inter (1-0) and Lazio (2-0), though they’d recover against Cagliari (4-1) and Udinese (2-1) before that aforementioned loss in Verona.

  • Genoa (vs Atalanta): Ospina; Manolas, Koulibaly, Maksimovic; Di Lorenzo, Bakayoko, Demme, Hysaj; Politano, Lozano, Insigne.
  • Napoli (vs Crotone): Perin; Radovanovic, Masiello, Criscito; Zappacosta, Strootman, Zajc, Badelj, Czyborra; Destro, Shomurodov.

Cristian Zapata (achilles), Davide Biraschi (shoulder) and Francesco Cassata (muscle) are missing for Genoa this weekend. As for the visitors, they are without Faouzi Ghoulam and Fabián Ruiz while Dries Mertens continues to recover from an ankle injury.

Players to watch:

  • Genoa: Finding the net hasn’t been an immediate concern for Genoa, who have struck 22 times across their opening 20 league outings. Responsible for 40.9% of those strikes (nine) — with seven coming in his last eight appearances — is veteran centre-forward Mattia Destro and he comes into this weekend looking to write a piece of history. If he nets against Napoli, meaning he’d score in three consecutive games, then it’s double digits for the season. Destro will subsequently become the 15th player in Serie A history to reach at least 10 goals in a campaign with four different teams. The eight-time Italy international previously turned out for Siena, Roma and Bologna.
  • Napoli: It’s fair to say Hirving Lozano has become the Neapolitan’s go-to man this season. The former PSV forward has scored in three of his previous six league outings bringing his total for the campaign to nine. That’s already five more than last season and he’s played seven games fewer. In each of Lozano’s two full campaigns at PSV, he reached double figures and will fancy his chances of breaking that duck for Napoli this weekend given Genoa are his favourite Serie A opponents. He’s previously netted three goals across three games including his first ever brace in the competition last September.
