Juventus-Genoa Betting Preview: Old Lady set for comfortable home win

Antonio Conte's side are usually dominant in Turin, and Jamie Dickenson is backing a win to nil for the hosts against lowly Genoa, with Paul Pogba and Mirko Vucinic scoring
Juventus host relegation-threatened Genoa looking to increase their grip on the top of the Serie A table.

The home side have lost just twice at Juventus Stadium this season - having gone unbeaten on home soil in the previous league campaign - and William Hill go as short as 1/5 (1.20) for another victory on their own patch here.

Genoa have only won two of their 10 away trips in the campaign so far, in what has been a disappointing term for Davide Ballardini's side.

The Rossoblu did win at Atlanta and Lazio earlier in the season however, and are priced at a huge 12/1 (13.0) to pick up all three points at Juventus.

The draw is available at 11/2 (6.50), but neither of those results appears likely given the hosts greater quality and dominance at home.

For better value, it may be worth backing Juve to win to nil at 3/4 (1.75), a bet that has come in during three of the Old Lady's last four home league matches.

Genoa are a side that have struggled to score goals away from home this season, with their paltry return of seven goals from 10 away days being the joint-second worst in the division.

The Bianconeri have the best defensive record in Serie A - both home and away - and thumped Udinese 4-0 last weekend in the league.

That game saw ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba score twice from long-distance, and the goal that broke the deadlock was rifled in with great technique.

Mirko Vucinic also scored in that game, and with the news that Fernando Llorente is to join the Turin club on a free transfer in the summer, the Montenegro striker will be anxious to add to his tally of six goals for Juve this season.

Backing both players to score again against Genoa offers odds of 5/1 (6.0), and is worth a punt for the value bet considering this game could be quite one-sided.

Pogba is fast becoming a first-team regular for the Italian giants, while Vucinic is an exceptionally talented frontman who knows he must get on the scoresheet more often.
