Torino vs Genoa Match Analysis & Prediction
03/09/2023 7:30 pm
Following last week’s heroics in Rome, Genoa travel to Turin on Sunday, when they will be looking for successive Serie A wins at the expense of Torino.
While the hosts remain without a league win following a defeat in Milan, Genoa got off the mark by beating Lazio in their first away game since promotion.
Although Perr Schuurs’ goal cancelled out Milan’s opener last Saturday, Torino then conceded twice more before the interval as San Siro and went on to lose 4-1 without managing another shot on target, as they suffered a first loss of the 2023-24 campaign.
After failing to break down promoted Cagliari on Serie A’s opening day, Torino’s only victory from their first three matches has come at home to Feralpisalo in the Coppa Italia first round.
As they hurtled towards the Serie A trapdoor in the spring of 2022, one of Genoa’s last acts of defiance was a 1-0 victory over Torino.
That win halted a run of nine league matches without victory over the Granata – a streak also featuring seven defeats – and having returned to the top flight as Serie B runners-up last season they now aim to claim three more points from Toro on Sunday.
While their top-flight comeback was somewhat soured by losing heavily at home to Fiorentina, last week summer signing Mateo Retegui scored the only goal at Stadio Olimpico as Genoa held on bravely for a 1-0 victory over Lazio.
Should they now go on to defeat Torino, Genoa would win their first two away matches of a Serie A season for the first time in their long history.
Torino vs. Genoa Head to head
