Fiorentina vs Genoa

Stadio Artemio Franchi is the venue as Fiorentina and Genoa go head-to-head in an exciting Serie A encounter.

With a quick turnaround required following a scoreless draw against Czech side Viktoria Plzen in the first leg of their Europa Conference League quarter-final tie, Fiorentina entertain Genoa seeking a confidence boost amidst an underwhelming 11-game form across all competitions (W3, D5, L3). Vincenzo Italiano’s men trailed sixth-placed Atalanta by seven points ahead of this round, highlighting the importance of piecing together a winning streak to boost their European chances in Serie A. However, they’ve blown hot and cold across their last six league outings on home turf (W2, D2, L2). Genoa’s visit to Tuscany brings up fond memories, with La Viola never losing a top-flight H2H at home in the ‘three points per win’ era (W9, D7).

On the other hand, Genoa consolidated their position in mid-table with a 2-1 win against relegation-battling Hellas Verona last time out to halt an unimpressive run of four straight winless league games (D2, L2). That result also marked only their second away victory in Serie A since the calendar year flipped to 2024 (D4, L1). Both those wins yielded an identical 2-1 scoreline, while Alberto Gilardino’s side failed to score more than once in five winless matches during that stretch. Genoa will be confident of avoiding defeat again after holding Fiorentina to five successive league draws in Tuscany before slumping to a woeful 6-0 loss on their most recent visit to Artemio Franchi.
