As part of the 13th round of the Italian championship, Genoa met Verona at home.
It was the hosts who dominated the match between two outsiders. The Griffins had many chances, but they had to wait quite a long time.
The first truly dangerous opportunity at the Verona goal arose at the end of the first half. Caleb Ekuban sent the ball wide of the goal with a shot from outside the penalty area, and in the next attack his “achievement” was repeated by Kony de Winter.
However, the storming of the visitors' goal bore fruit even before the break. The author of the goal was Radu Dregushin, sending the ball into the lower right corner of the goal.
In the second half, Alberto Gilardino's team continued to dominate, but Verona goalkeeper Lorenzo Montipo showed an excellent game, but the Mastiffs' attack could not thank their goalkeeper for leaving the team a chance at least for a draw.
In the 86th minute, Ruslan Malinovsky entered the field, but the Ukrainian did not have time to make his mark.
