Roma vs Genoa: Hosts to clinch second with emphatic win

Roma vs Genoa: Hosts to clinch second with emphatic win

Kick Off: 1700, 28/05/2017

Stadium: Olimpico

Roma are expected to wrap up second place in Serie A when they host poor travellers Genoa on the final day of the season this Saturday.

The Wolves have come out on top in their last five head-to-head encounters, keeping four clean sheets in the process.

That makes 3/4 for a home win to nil hard to resist in our Roma vs Genoa betting tips.

A Look At Roma’s Betting Odds

Roma completed a hat-trick of wins when obliging at Chievo last week, but they haven’t exactly been tight at the back of late, with that 5-3 success making it six games since they last kept out the opposition.

However, they had previously faced Juventus, AC Milan, Lazio and Atalanta during that period, so there have been some tough fixtures to contend with.

Up front, the Yellow and Reds are flying, with a dozen goals scored in those three straight victories, including four from Stephan El Shaarawy and three by Edin Dzeko.

Dzeko leads the Serie A Golden Boot race by one, so the hosts may continue to push forward here, making 14/5 for a multiple correct score bet on 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 appeal from the Roma vs Genoa odds.

A Look At Genoa’s Betting Odds

Genoa have gone steadily backwards over the past few years, slipping from sixth place in 2015 to 10th last term and now 16th this season.

However, they have at least staved off the threat of relegation with home wins over Inter and Torino this month.

Travel sickness has been a big problem, though, with no goals scored in four straight road defeats, making it 13 away losses so far during the current campaign, netting a division-low 12 times.

The latest the visitors have gone behind in their last five away defeats is 33 minutes, so 5/4 for the hosts to score between 15:01 and the half-hour mark is another of our Roma vs Genoa predictions.
