Genoa - Form Analysis:

Genoa, having spent the previous season in Serie B, aimed primarily to avoid relegation this season. However, under Gilardino's management, they have consistently picked up points, with only Lazio managing to secure a win against them after a managerial change. At home, they have beaten Cagliari and Sassuolo. They could have taken points from Roma as well but relaxed after gaining a numerical advantage, only to concede a goal from Lukaku.

Bologna - Form Analysis:

Bologna has achieved their best result in decades, securing a top-5 finish and a spot in the Champions League for the first time since the 1960s. A crucial 2-0 win away at Napoli was pivotal. Thiago Motta is rumored to be moving to Turin, but his current team played an entertaining 3-3 draw against Juventus on Monday.
