• The last draw between Roma and Genoa in Serie A was back in 1993-94 (1-1 at the Olimpico). Since then, the Giallorossi have won nine times (including the last three meetings), while Genoa had the better on five occasions.

    Five of the last six meetings saw both sides scoring at least one goal.

    Genoa have won only two of their last 32 league games at Roma’s ground, the last in January 1990.

    Roma have won their last seven home games against Genoa, keeping four clean sheets in the process.

    Losing to Juventus last Sunday, Roma ended their 19-game unbeaten run in Serie A.

    Roma have conceded nine goals over their last 10 league games, after they had shipped only one over the previous 10.

    Rudi Garcia’s side have shipped just two goals at home this season, fewer than any other side across the top-5 European leagues.

    Prior to their 2-0 win against Sassuolo, Genoa had failed to win five league games in a row (three draws, two defeats).

    Roma have picked up five red cards so far, more than any other Serie A side.

    Alberto Gilardino has scored 10 goals in Serie A against Roma, three of which in his last two appearances against the Giallorossi. Only against Udinese has he netted more goals in the Italian top-flight (13).
