Soccer News – Inter-Genoa
Inter hosts Genoa in a game from the 6th round of the Italian Serie A. The match is going to be played on Sunday afternoon at the Stadio San Siro in Milan.
Inter are playing very good with their new manager Luciano Spalletti. The former Roma manager successfully improved the team, especially compared with the last season. Right now Inter are unbeaten in the first five rounds of the Serie A. They have four wins and lost points only once – during the 1-1 draw with Bologna in the last round. Inter are currently 3rd in the standings with 13 points won so far.
Genoa are 17th in the standings with just two points won so far. We can’t say that they started the new season in the most successful way possible. If they don’t improve their performance soon, they could be locked in a tough battle for survival this season. Genoa’s active so far is two draws and three losses, they still have not recorded a win since the start of the new campaign. In the last round Genoa won a point during the 1-1 draw at home against Chievo.
Inter’s manager Luciano Spalletti can use all of his players for this game, which is great news for the experienced tactician. There are no injuries or suspensions in Inter’s squad, so we should expect to see them in full force against Genoa.
As for Genoa, they can’t use the suspended Armando Izzo, while Gianluca Lapadula is injured. Nicolas Spolli, Goran Pandev and Sebastian Gorga remain doubtful for the match because of injuries.
Inter are the heavy favourite here, especially at home. The Nerrazurri are playing very good under Spalletti, so maybe this season they will achieve their goal – return to the Champions League. At least. While for Genoa, they will have to fight for their place in the league.
