Goals expected on Sunday between two offensive sides

<div><h2>Genoa vs Fiorentina</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/it/serie-a/genoa-cfc-vs-acf-fiorentina-3890904/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow"><strong>Sunday, September 1st, at Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Genoa)</strong></a></p><p>After keeping AS Roma to a 3-3 draw at Stadio Olimpico playing a superb football, Genoa will now host Fiorentina in their 1st match of the season on their turf. Serie A returned with goals also for Fiorentina but unfortunately for them and for their fans they failed to win points last weekend against Napoli. Franck Ribéry was dragged down in the box by Napoli’s Elseid Hysaj but the referee refused to point to the penalty spot and the VAR failed to alert him to his mistake taking, possibly stealing Fiorentina 1 point. Fiorentina who narrowly escaped relegation last term, have not recorded a win in their last 15 domestic league matches but this season they look to be improved.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Fiorentina’s takeover by the American businessman, Rocco Commisso represents was very important. Former Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery joined the club on a free transfer, Kevin-Prince Boateng moved Serie A clubs coming from Sassuolo. They are looking to add some extra quality to their midfield and reports in Italy are saying that they are negotiating with Man United for Fred who joined the Red Devils last summer for £50m but doesn’t feature in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans. They did well to keep Chiesa and Simeone, 2 great young strikers who are expected to score many goals this season. On the other side, Genoa were very active this summer. They spent €48m signing Stefano Sturaro and Andrea Favilli from Juventus, Ionut Radu from Inter Milan, Lasse Schone from Ajax but also other. Their main objective is to earn a European spot at the end of the season.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>It’s the beginning of the season and after we’ve seen in the 1st round when both Genoa and Fiorentina conceded 3 and 4 goals respectively, we expect a high-scoring match with at least 3 goals on the scoreboard. Both teams experienced many problems in their defensive in the 1st game. The bookies are expecting a close game with Genoa being priced at 2.62 with Bet365 while Fiorentina are priced at 2.75 with Betfair. Genoa and Ivory Coast Christian Kouame who already scored this season in the 3-3 draw against AS Roman is priced at 4.2 with Betfair to be anytime goalscorer and we believe that this bet represents great value. On the other side Fiorentina have a great attacking line with Chiesa, Simeone, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Frank Ribery.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Serie A Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.76 with Unibet</strong></em></a></p></div>
