In last five encounters between the two teams, Genoa has won three games. However, the recent meeting was won by AC Milan with Matias Fernandez scoring his first goal for his new team to earn them a 1-0 home win against Genoa.
The hosts are playing their worst football having lost last three league matches of their domestic campaign. After disappointing shutout losses against Roma (2-0) and Sampdoria (2-0), Rossoneri faced Inter in a crucial Milan derby last weekend which ended in a 3-2 defeat. In the loss to Inter Milan, Suso scored the lone goal and Inter’ Samir Handanovic own goal made it two. Gone are the days when Milan dominated Serie A they sit at 10th position with 12 points.
Pressure will be on skipper Leonardo Bonucci and head coach Vincenzo Montella going into Sunday’s clash. André Silva is leading goal scorer on the team with four goals in two matches but has yet to give a match-winning performance.
Longtime absentee Andrea Conti remains sidelined but Hakan Calhanoglu will be back on the field serving a suspension.
Genoa placed 17th out of the 20 teams in Serie A are hopeless as well into the season. In eight matches they managed to grab just 5 points. However, their spirits are high entering Sunday’s clash as they are coming off a 3-2 victory over Cagliari last weekend. Andrej Galabinov, Adel Taarabt, and Luca Rigoni netted once for the win.
After missing the last few matches, Gianluca Lapadula will be back in the Genoa lineup on Sunday and would be all prepared to face his form club.
