Genoa come into Tuesday night's game against Juventus following a 2-2 draw in Brescia on Saturday. A match that saw the Ligurian team go two goals down in the first half, before fighting back in the second half with two perfectly penalties, the first from former Juve player, Iago Falque and the second from Andrea Pinamonti allowing the team coached by Davide Nicola to return home with one point. The point rose the Grifone's total to 26 in the standings, who remain locked in a relegation battle to avoid the drop.

HOME FORM

At the Luigi Ferraris, Genoa have so far achieved four wins, one draw and eight defeats, their last defeat coming in their first game after the Serie A restart on 23 June, when they lost 4-1 against Parma. Genoa haven't tasted victory at the Marassi since 9 February, when they defeated Cagliari 1-0 thanks to the goal scored by Goran Pandev. Their other victories coming against Fiorentina (2-1), Brescia (3-1) and Sassuolo (2-1).
