With Spal and Brescia practically in Serie B, the last useful place to stay in Serie A is played by Genoa and Lecce . At the moment the rossoblù have 4 points of advantage over the Salento.
Genoa's salvation hit in the 'salvation play-off' against Lecce. The hosts won thanks to Sanabria's goal and Gabriel's own goal on a shot from distance by Jagiello. The Salentinians scored the flag with Mancosu and missed a penalty kick always with their striker.
Thanks to this victory, Genoa took four more against Lecce four days after the end of the championship. A victory that tastes like salvation.
Let's analyze the calendar of the two teams in the running for the last place salvation from here to the end of the championship.
Day 35 presents the following challenges. Genoa are engaged in the derby against Sampdoria. The blucerchiati have gained mathematical salvation by winning against Parma but will do everything they can to triumph in the derby.
A few years ago, Genoa contributed significantly to the relegation of Sampdoria (the derby was won by the rossoblùs at the last moment with a Boselli goal). Blucerchiati will try to take revenge.
Lecce, on the other hand, will host a Brescia that is practically already in Serie B. In case of defeat against the Salentines, the Lombards would be sentenced to the cadet series mathematically. In any case, it is only a matter of time.
The 36th day is a turn, at least on paper, more difficult for Genoa.
In fact, the rossoblù will have to face Inter, a team that is still in the running for the Scudetto, instead the Salento will play against a Bologna that has nothing more to ask for in this championship because it is already safe but cannot reach qualification in the Europa League.
The 37th day presents very similar matches. In the sense that both Lecce and Genoa will face opponents who no longer have goals.
Lecce will go to the field of an already saved Udinese, while Genoa will play in Reggio Emilia against a more than peaceful Sassuolo.
Genoa-Verona and Lecce-Parma close the championship. Again, the two teams fighting not to retreat face opponents who no longer have goals for this championship.
