Genoa have had a horrid league start with 6 points collected from 11 games. They sit tied bottom of the league with Torino and Crotone who look set to battle for survival. This is vastly different for AC Milan, who have set record after record and will want to continue to pile pressure on Genoa. Genoa are missing many defensive players and tonight may well be the first game in 3 meetings where Milan can win by 2 goals.

Players to Watch

Gianluca Scamacca

6 goals in 10 games is massively impressive for a struggling side, and the number 9 will no doubt be the hope that Genoa clings to for grabbing any points in tonight's game.

Perin

The other young Italian Keeper that was once to fight Donnaruma for the national team spot, will certainly have his hands full tonight, and with his team missing huge defensive cover including Ex Milan CB Zapata and leader Criscito, will need to have a great game.

Leao

Returning from injury after a great run of form including the derby assist, the young attacker will be aiming to cement his place back in the first 11. Hauge, Rebic and Diaz are all in contention so goals in these games will be essential.

Prediction

Genoa 1:3 Milan
