Match Insights

Milan have won seven of their last 10 Serie A matches against Genoa (D2 L1), after losing four of their previous five against the Grifone in the competition (W1).

Players to Watch

Theo Hernández scored the first of his 17 Serie A goals against Genoa in October 2019 – he is the only defender to have already been directly  involved in 10 goals (4 goals, 6 assists ) in the league this season.

Mattia Destro has scored nine goals in Serie A this season and could become the first Genoa player to score 10+ goals in two back-to-back Serie A seasons since Tomas Skuhravy (3, between 1990/91 and 1992/93). However, the Italian forward has only scored one goal in his last 10 league matches (vs Salernitana on 13 February).

Match Insights

There has not been a draw in the last 15 Serie A matches between Fiorentina and Venezia: 10 wins for the Toscani and five for the Veneti (the last draw was on 30th March 1947, 1-1 in Florence).

Venezia won the reverse fixture against Fiorentina (1-0); the last time the Veneti won both Serie A seasonal matches against the Viola was in 1941/42: 3- 1 in Florence and 2-1 at home.
