HUGE game for Genoa, they are up to fourth spot in the table and face a daunting run of fixtures after this, staring with a trip to face Milan on Wednesday. They have won three in a row without conceding and those wins are all the more impressive, because they were earned in the absence of top scorer Diego Milito, who is back in the squad today :
PORTIERI: 1 Lamanna, 83 Rubinho. DIFENSORI: 25 Biava, 26 Bocchetti, 4 Criscito, 13 Ferrari, 15 Sokratis. CENTROCAMPISTI: 20 Mesto, 77 Milanetto, 23 Modesto, 7 Rossi, 88 Thiago Motta, 68 Vanden Borre. ATTACCANTI: 31 El Shaarawy, 17 Jankovic, 22 Milito, 11 Olivera, 14 Sculli.
Genoa have an awesome home record (7-2-0) and Catania, who have lost five straight road games without scoring, cannot be looking forward to this one. Huge offensive options for the home side and I expect them to cover the handicap, with Milito looking to impress upon his return.
6 points Genoa -1 ball 2.12 asian line.
Very quickly, I like to follow strikers in form, as you probably know, no Zlatan for Inter tonight, but I think Adriano who has been slowly returning to something like his old level, will revel in the extra responsibility. He scored a good goal against Roma in midweek and the transfer window, would be an ideal time for him to continue to impress. Do not forget, before injuries took their toll, this man mountain, who is incredible difficult to shake off the ball, especially in the penalty area, scored 77 goals in 128 appearances, in his first six seasons in Serie A. I think we are about to see a return to that level of performance in the coming weeks. I think that anything above 2.10 is acceptable, but the circa 2.50 offered on the exchanges is great value.
5 points Adriano to score at anytime 2.50 exchanges.
