Check out our preview and betting suggestions for tonight’s Serie A clash between Genoa and Juventus.

Gameweek 29 of top-flight Italian football will see reigning champions Juventus travel to Genoa on Tuesday evening.

The Bianconeri are heading into this encounter on the back of five consecutive wins in Serie A, including a 4-0 thrashing of Lecce, last Friday.

Genoa, on the other hand, is still winless since the return of football, as they lost 4-1 at home to Parma and fought back from two-goals down to earn a point at Brescia last Saturday.

What to bet on?

Winner – Juventus

Juventus are traditionally having a hard time at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium in the past decade.

They’ve won only five of their last 11 trips to Genoa, losing four times in the process.

However, tonight they have to win in order to keep their safe distance on top of Serie A and we believe Ronaldo and the boys will be up to the challenge and take home the three points without any major problems.

Goals – Under 2,50

Four of the last five meetings between these sides saw less than three goals, with Juve’s 2-1 win in the reverse fixture back in October being the only exception.

The Bianconeri are yet to concede a goal since the return of football in Italy, but they also failed to score in two of the four games they’ve played in the process.

Goalscorer – Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo scored on his both league outings this month, extending his goal tally for the 2019-20 Serie A campaign to 23 goals.

He is still trailing by five behind Ciro Immobile though, in the race for his first-ever Capocannoniere award. Ronaldo will definitely be looking to close this gap with another goal or two against Genoa this evening.
