The two teams managed to secure their survival in the Serie A and will face each other in what is expected to be a lively and interesting clash to watch really.

The Sardinians are currently in 16th position with 37 points on the league table but will finish in position 17 if they lose and Torino win. Joao Pedro is Cagliari’s top scorer with 16 goals this season.
Genoa on the other hand, secured the Serie A survival despite the 4-3 loss to Atalanta last weekend. Genoa are in position 14 with 39 points on the league table and they won their reverse match earlier this year with 1-0 against Cagliari.
Genoa have had rough times recently; they have only managed to win one game of the last four and loosing all the other three. They have less to fight to for in this match but are more likely to adopt their attacking approach hence a over 2.5 goals should be considered.
