Genoa – Verona (21:45, Channel 50)
In order not to go down after 13 consecutive seasons in Serie A, the host has to beat the surprising newcomer who for her part wants to sign a wonderful season and maybe even advance to eighth place with the first victory in Marasi since December 1989. Also last season Genoa finished in 17th place and saved her teeth. To take it down is Croatian Ivan Juric, who was one of Rosovello’s top players in promotion in 2007, retired in 2010 and also coached Genoa between 2016 and 2018, in three short and bizarre terms. Goran Pandev is expected to start alongside Andrea Pinamonti on offense, with Verona again without pre-Kombola and Giampaolo Pacini.
Lecce – Pharma (21:45)
Fabio Librani recorded two consecutive promotions with Lecce, from the third league for the first time, and now hopes to avoid relegation as he battles for a place in the league against Genoa – the previous team he coached in Serie A where he held only seven rounds in 2013/14. The host has scored six points from the last nine and is back to life, and now she owes Genoa a win and a stumble at the same time. Genoa’s draw and loss will lead to a tie, but it will not benefit Lecce to go down because of the balance of meetings between the teams (2: 2 and 1: 2 for Genoa). Lecce needs to do without the yellowed brakeman Nahuan Fass, while Parma will be missing seven players, among them their top scorer Andreas Cornelius.
Spal – Fiorentina (19:00, ONE2)
Sassuolo – Udinese (21:45)
Bologna – Turin (21:45)
