Despite the heavy defeat against Inter, Genoa is almost safe because it has 4 points ahead of Lecce and the direct clash in favor two days after the end of the championship.
You can party even after a heavy knockout. In fact, despite the 0-3 suffered by Inter, Genoa is almost safe because, a few hours later, Lecce collapsed on the Bologna pitch.
So the rossoblù have four points ahead of Salento just two days after the end of the championship. Mathematical safety could come already in the next round of Serie A.
As said, despite the knockout against Inter, this round smiled at Genoa because Lecce, who is the direct opponent for staying in the top flight of Italian football, lost 3 to 2 on Mihajlovic's Bologna field.
Fight not to retreat. The schedule of the two teams.
Meanwhile, let's start by saying that both Genoa and Lecce will find teams on their path who have nothing more to ask for in this championship. And let's say straight away that if Lecce wants to save it will have to score more points than Genoa because in case of a tie, the rossoblù would be saved for the advantage in direct clashes.
On the penultimate day, Genoa will go to play on the field of Sassuolo, a team that can no longer engage the qualification in the Europa League. Lecce, however, will go to play on the field of a Udinese already saved thanks to the exploit against Juve.
On the last day of the championship, Genoa will host a Verona that can no longer qualify for the Europa League while Lecce will host a Parma already saved and satisfied.
