Genoa 4/9 to beat Benevento in Saturday’s Serie A showdown
Competition: Serie A
Market: Genoa to beat Benevento
Odds: 4/9 @ Bet365
Serie A is back for yet another big weekend of action. The Italian league is one of the most competitive this season, with a number of teams jostling at the top for dominance, while midtable and the lower echelons of the league are very tight too. With all of this in mind, Genoa host Benevento on Saturday.
Genoa have been in poor form this season and they need to embark on a run of form that sees them winning a number of games. This campaign they have won just three games, drawing five and losing nine, while they have only scored 14 goals and conceded 22 times. This record has seen them take 14 points for the season so far, meaning they are only spared the relegation zone by their goal difference. In their last five, they have been better though, winning twice, drawing twice and losing just once, which has seen them climb into safety, for now anyway.
Benevento have been awful this season. After 17 games they are yet to win, while they have lost 16 times and drawn just once. Nine goals scored and 40 conceded shows they have been weak right across the pitch, and something has to change and quickly for the side as they are now 12 points adrift of 19th-placed Verona, and 13 points short of safety. Positively, their only point of the season came three games ago, but they have since lost two games on the bounce. With all of this in mind, we are backing Genoa with odds of 4/9 from Bet365.
