Reason For Chievo vs Genoa Betting Tips
Just how will Genoa follow up their impressive victory over Juventus last weekend? That 3-1 win came out of nowhere, but it wasn’t their first big win at home this season. They had put three past AC Milan earlier in the campaign, but the Rossoblu then lost 3-0 at Atalanta. They’ll be hoping to fare a lot better when they travel to take on Chievo on Monday night.
Genoa are a tough side to beat at home, as their results against Milan and Juve have proven. However, it’s a different story for them on the road. They’ve lost 67% of their away matches in Serie A this season, which has left them way off the pace in the fight for the European spots. They are six points off sixth, with a game in hand. A win here would really boost their Europa League hopes. Can they change their away fortunes with a result at Chievo?
The hosts are scrambling to get back to their early season form. They lost just one of their first five which had them flying high, before things started to fall apart. Having been a surprise name in the top spots early on, Chievo have now slumped down to 13th. However, they can jump above Genoa with a result here.
Chievo may have mixed results this season, but they’ve been very consistent in front of goal. They’ve managed to find the net in 100% of their home games this season, can they make it eight out of eight here? They’ve averaged 1.29 goals per match in front of their own fans. They were just as clinical in midweek, recording a 3-0 victory of Novara in the Coppa Italia.
In the league, Chievo have converted 14% of their chances into goals, while Genoa have conceded from 14% of the shots they’ve faced. That should see the home side extend their scoring run on Monday night. However, their problem has been at the other end of the pitch. They let far too many goals in at home, they’ve conceded in 71% of their matches here this season. The visitors have scored 1.31 goals per outing this term, so they should be able to take advantage of Chievo’s defensive worries.
Genoa have scored in four of their last five trips to Chievo, while they should dominate this game. Chievo average 46% possession at home, while Genoa have 54% of the ball per away match. That should give them a chance to expose a Chievo defence which has conceded in four of their last five matches. Both of these sides should hit the target on Monday, so we think both teams to score is well priced at evens with bet365.
