HOW GENOA ARRIVES – With the arithmetic salvation won in Bologna, Genoa are ready to return to the field against Atalanta in the first of the two matches that will close the season. The rossoblu coach should return to 3-5-2 with Perin in goal and the rearguard formed by Goldaniga, Zapata and Masiello. In midfield Zajc could return from the first minute alongside Rovella (Badelj is not called up) and Strootman, while on the side lanes there should be Ghiglione on the right and Zappacosta on the left. Forward the main doubts, even if in all probability from the first minute they should be Destro and Pandev.
HOW THE ATALANTA ARRIVES – The Nerazzurri only need three points to celebrate their mathematical qualification for the Champions League. Gasperini’s first doubt concerns the form: against a three-man defense in recent times he has always played with 4-2-3-1, but Muriel is in doubt after the trauma to his thigh. Precisely for this reason the orobics could return with the three-man defense: in front of Gollini space for Djimsiti, Romero and Palomino. Toloi should also stay out for the Marassi match and then return in the last two races of the season. De Roon and Freuler will be confirmed in midfield with Gosens and Hateboer on the outside lanes. Pessina will be placed on the trocar with Malinovskyi and Zapata to complete the back pack. But beware of Ilicic, the Slovenian is the number one candidate to become the surprise of the day.
