Reason For Genoa vs Juventus Predictions
71% of Juve's away trips have seen both teams score.
Genoa have scored and lost against every top-eight side they've hosted this term.
The visitors have conceded in six of their nine away wins.
Juventus have won 2-1 in nine Serie A games this season and in 36% of their away trips.
Juve can turn the tide
The lack of home fans could make a major difference for Juventus this weekend, as they look to correct one of their worst runs in Serie A. Genoa have beaten Juve two times since the 2016/17 season - only five sides have managed to do so against the Old Lady in the same timeframe.
However, the hosts have an issue with manager Davide Nicola losing all of his five top-flight meetings with Juve. The visitors will look to flex their strength in this visit, as they search for a sixth consecutive Serie A victory. The Grifone have been vulnerable at home this term, but our predictions point to them breaking Juve's resistance at the back.
The hosts have enjoyed some entertaining clashes since returning to action this month. They were beaten 4-1 at home to Parma, before the weekend's 2-2 draw with bottom side Brescia. It's hardly the kind of record which will worry the champions, especially given how Maurizio Sarri's men hit four goals past Lecce on Friday as they claimed another three points in the league.
Things could be about to get even worse for the hosts this week. Genoa have lost 63 games and conceded 213 goals against Juventus in Serie A - more than they have against any other opponent. With Juve scoring twice in each of their last five league games, they are clearly stepping things up under Sarri's more attacking approach. He'll be looking to hammer one of the league's worst defensive setups on Tuesday night.
Juve's clean sheet run to end
Juventus have kept a clean sheet in their last three league games and could go four in a row for the first time since December 2018 (six). While they've managed to keep things tight since the restart, Genoa are likely to threaten after scoring three goals in two games since the restart. The champions have been easily exposed for much of the season, with 71% of their away trips seeing both teams score. Meanwhile, Genoa have seen 69% of their home games finish with both teams scoring, while they've scored and lost to all five of the top-eight sides they've faced at home.
Juve have already seen both teams score in each of their visits to the bottom four this term. Six of their nine away wins have seen them concede, so we expect them to ship a goal in this clash. Meanwhile, they've won 2-1 in five of their 14 away games this season, which is 36% of their trips. They have nine 2-1 wins in Serie A this term, including in their last meeting with Genoa. As a result, a 2-1 away win is our correct score prediction.
