Despite the heavy defeat against Inter, Genoa are almost safe because they have a 4-point advantage over Lecce and a direct match in favor two days from the end of the championship.
You can party even after a heavy knockout. In fact, despite the 0-3 suffered by Inter, Genoa are almost safe because, a few hours later, Lecce collapsed on the Bologna pitch.
So the rossoblù have four points ahead of the Salento just two days from the end of the championship. Mathematical salvation could come already in the next Serie A round.
As mentioned, despite the knockout against Inter, this round smiled at Genoa because Lecce, which is the direct opponent for staying in the top flight of Italian football, lost 3 to 2 at Mihajlovic's Bologna.
Fight not to retreat. The calendar of the two teams.
Meanwhile, let's start by saying that both Genoa and Lecce will find teams on their path that have nothing more to ask of this championship. And let's also say right away that if Lecce wants to save themselves they will have to score more points than Genoa because in the event of a tie, the rossoblùs would be saved for the advantage in direct clashes.
On the penultimate day, Genoa will play on the Sassuolo field, a team that can no longer reach qualification for the Europa League. Lecce, on the other hand, will 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 safe and satisfied.
