AS Roma hosts Genoa in round 26 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, March 7th at Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
In the last round, Roma pulled out the victory in a rather difficult away confrontation with Fiorentina, scoring a goal two minutes before the end of the match. That allowed the Wolves to retain their 5th line in the standings with a 2-point lag from the podium. In general, the Romans feel quite confident in the championship - they won 14 out of 25 matches. And they don’t allow anyone to breathe freely on their pitch. In 13 home matches, Roma lost only to Milan and gained eight victories.

Genoa has not won in the last four matches of the tournament, but it has lost only once. Only Inter was a top rival, and the Griffins predictably lost to it on the road. But they gained draws with the 8th Verona, 10th Sampdoria, and 18th Torino. Now Genoa is on the 13th line in the standings. The bosses of the team changed the coach in December last year, firing Maran who brought the Griffins to the last line in the standings. And under the leadership of experienced Ballardini, Genoa's performance significantly improved. But the team still lacks the class to take points from the leaders, and even away.
And the Griffins will not make dividends in Rome, where the local Roma has won 17 of the last 25 matches in various tournaments. Genoa rarely gains points in the capital of Italy. Yes, it snatched a draw in the last head-to-head match. But firstly, it was the 1st round of the 19-20 championship, and Roma just hadn't found its best game and tied 3-3. Secondly, before that, Genoa lost 13 consecutive matches at Stadio Olimpico! And thirdly, Roma is in optimal shape now. In addition to successful performances in the championship, the Wolves made it to the quarterfinals of the Europa League, beating Braga in two legs (3-1 at home and 2-0 in Portugal). I won’t try to predict the score, but the Romans will probably beat Genoa once again.
Prediction for the match: AS Roma to win
