• Chievo have won 50% of their Serie A meetings vs Genoa (5 of 10), losing three times with two draws.
  • The Veneti have won each of their last three league away matches vs the Rossoblu, scoring eight goals in the process.
  • All of Genoa’s wins against Chievo in the top-flight have ended with a 1-0 scoreline.
  • The Rossoblu have won only one of their last 10 Serie A games, failing to score in seven of these.
  • Five points after seven matchdays is Genoa’s worst Serie A start since 1976/77. The Rossoblu ended that season in 11th place.
  • Chievo’s start (four points after seven games) is their second worst in Serie A: only in the 2006/07 campaign did the Veneti have less points at the beginning of a season. The Gialloblu were later relegated at the end of the season.
  • Giuseppe Sannino’s side are the only team yet to score a goal on the road in Serie A this season.
  • Moreover, Chievo still haven’t found the net in the second half of games while Genoa have scored only once in the first 45 minutes of their games: both are league lows.
  • The Rossoblu have fired just 46 shots at goal: fewer than any other team in the top-flight.
  • Alberto Paloschi (who played for Genoa in 2011) scored his only hat-trick in Serie A against the Rossoblu, back in December 2012.
  • Alberto Gilardino has scored eight goals vs Chievo in Serie A, including his brace in January 2013 (his last in the Italian top-flight).
