Juventus vs. Genoa Match Analysis and Prediction

Juventus kickstart their hopes of clinching the Coppa Italia after losing it last year. The side welcomes struggling Genoa at the Allianz Arena this Wednesday with a kickoff at 10:45 pm.

Both sides head into the clash coming off league wins last weekend. The hosts look keen to take the first few steps towards a record-extending 14th cup triumph in the spring.

The Old Lady sealed a second successive Serie A earlier in the weekend with a win against a close rival in the standings. The Bianconeri saw off Sassuolo 3-1 thanks to late goals by Aaron Ramsey and Cristiano Ronaldo.

After their crucial win over Milan at San Siro, the win came after ensuring Andrea Pirlo is back in the Scudetto race. On Christmas Eve, the side was on a series of disappointing draws followed by their unceremonious loss to Fiorentina.

Even with the Champions League football back with February coming in, Juventus have several fixtures in the coming days. The side has to contest the Derby Italia with Inter and the Supercopa Italiana final against a Napoli side that was defeated in last term’s cup final.

On the other hand, Genoa made it to the final 16 by wins over Catanzaro and city rivals Sampdoria. It might have been a successive run but landing Juventus is a significant blow given theirs out of form.
