Players to Watch

Marko Pjaca

The former Milan target and Juventus depth player has landed at Genoa and has been one of the few bright spots for a relegation battling side. The midfielder has been synamic contributing both in attack and defensively with his physicality. He has scored three goals thus far and will be a real threat with his late runs into the box.

Calhanoglu

Hakan had a game to forget against Parma this weekend. He put in a solid shift but nothing fell his way as he some how managed to hit the crossbar twice and the sidebar off a brilliant free kick. The Turkey international needs to brush off the performance and get back to his stellar form from earlier in the season. He will be instrumental in setting up opportunities for Rebic and Leao to get them firing again.

Rebic

This is the third or fourth preview in a row where I have included Rebic. He has come close but looks insanely uncomfortable in that no. 9 role in a way he didn’t last season. He must break the duck not just for himself but for the team too. We almost lost it against Parma because our attack isn’t firing. Today is a golden opportunity for Rebic to score with the ultra attacking line up.

Prediction: Genoa 1 - 3 Milan
