Match preview
Genoa have not played outside of Serie A since the 2006-07 campaign, but they only just survived relegation last season - finishing in 17th position - and are in another battle to stay in the league this term. The Red and Blues have only won six of their 28 league matches during the 2019-20 campaign, picking up 26 points to occupy 17th, just one point clear of 18th-placed Lecce on the same number of games. Davide Nicola's side suffered a 4-1 home defeat to Parma on their return to action on June 23 before drawing 2-2 at Brescia on Saturday as they put what could be an important point on the board. Genoa's recent form is actually quite strong, having lost just two of their last eight in the league, picking up wins over Cagliari, Bologna and AC Milan in the process. A clash with the reigning champions and current leaders is not quite what the supporters would have wanted on Tuesday evening, though, during an incredibly important stage of the season.
Team News
Genoa will again be without the services of holding midfielder Ivan Radovanovic due to a knee injury, while full-back Domenico Criscito will also miss out due to a tendon issue. There is expected to be changes from the side that drew with Brescia, with Pandev and Lasse Schone both candidates to be rotated into the XI against the champions. Iago Falque is likely to keep his spot in the final third, but Antonio Sanabria might come into his manager's thinking for a starting role if he manages to overcome some muscle fatigue. As for Juve, Mattia De Sciglio, Alex Sandro, Sami Khedira, Giorgio Chiellini and Merih Demiral are all still on the sidelines through injury, but the Old Lady do not have any fresh concerns. Blaise Matuidi looks set to continue at left-back due to his team's problems in that area of the field, but there could be a change in midfield with Aaron Ramsey potentially replacing Adrien Rabiot. Miralem Pjanic is believed to have undergone a medical with Barcelona at the weekend ahead of a proposed swap deal with Arthur, but the experienced midfielder should keep his spot in the XI.
