The season is coming to an end also in Italy. The situation is currently critical for CFC Genoa. With three games to go, relegation becomes more and more likely.
The euphoria in Genoa did not last long. After last week’s 1-0 win over rivals Cagliari, the mood at the CFC was good. New hopes have sprung up in the battle for relegation. Now the team of German coach Alexander Blessin wanted to do more on Saturday. In the city derby against Sampdoria, the “Rossoblu”, the rossoblùs, had the opportunity to jump out of the relegation zone. They were three points behind Cagliari, who are currently safe in 16th place.
But the match ended 0: 1 from the CFC’s point of view. Genoa remained at 25 points and remained 19th (out of 20) in Serie A.
Here’s what the Serie A standings look like:
Furthermore, the competitor Salernitana in 18th place has two fewer games. On Monday evening, Franck Ribéry’s team meets Atalanta, on Thursday, after all, Venezia. The chances of recovering points on the competition from Genoa are high.
The competition is still playing against each other
The same “Rossoblu” have only three games to save them. But the rest of the program has it all. Next Friday Blessin’s team will host Juventus Turin (fourth in the standings), the following week they will go to Napoli (third). On the final day of play, Genoa hosts FC Bologna, who are in a safe midfield.
Cagliari and Salernitana, on the other hand, will meet next weekend. In addition, on the last day of the game, Cagliari will play with Venezia, last classified, and Salernitana will also have their promoted partner Empoli in front of them. The possibility of scoring points is high, which is why Genoa are under even more pressure and are in desperate need of victories against top teams in Turin and Naples.
