After shipping 6 goals to Napoli the last time around, Gerona would have understood that the only way they can navigate this tricky period is by thrusting everything they have into defence. It’s a gameplan which will be aided by Mattia Perin, a player capable of showing resillinace in the face of adversary.
Where Genoa went goalless the last time around, Verona on the other hand will conceded the solitary goal in three fixtures. The side has kept cleansheets in both of its wins till now, a team set to turn a bare Genoa outfit as white as a sheet come today.
Devoid of their usual names in attack, Genoa will be left barking up the wrong tree as they try to conjure up a goal. Left largely to cover their tracks, we envisage Genoa ending up with a goal once again to see us opt for the trio of Federico Ceccherini, Alan Empereur and Giangiacomo Magnani from the side.
Elsewhere, the two assists for the attackingly well versed Paolo Ghiglione see him line up for us from the opposition.
Milan Badelj has managed to help himself to the one assist as well to see him be our first pick from the visiting setup in this docket. Verona on the other hand are represented by a trio of players, one beginning with the pick of the vibrant Davide Faraoni who has the one assist to his name.
The indomitable and daunting duo of Adrien Tameze and Mattia Zaccagni has spurred both the club’s attacking and defensive facets to see it make a way into our side as well.
This is just the fixture for Samuel di Caemine to make a name for himself at Verona. He’s taking on a defence which is makeshift in nature, one he knows he can easily end up filling his shoes against.
The one goal for Goran Pandev sees him be inducted into our setup from Gerona for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His goal sees Faraoni captain our team for today while Zaccagni is the vice-captain.
Perin, Empereur, Ceccherini, Magnani, Ghiglione, Tameze, Faraoni, Zaccagni, Badelj, Pandev, Samuel
