Serie A TIM

FOCUS ON GENOA VS TORINO

* Torino have won their last five Serie A TIM matches against Genoa, equalling their longest winning streak in the competition against the Rossoblu, between 1977 and 1982.

* Torino have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three Serie A TIM games against Genoa (a record for them against the Liguri). The last side that failed score in in four successive games in the top-flight against the Granata was Padova between 1961 and 1994.

* Genoa have lost their last three home games against Torino in Serie A TIM having gone unbeaten in each of their 14 previous meetings (W8 D6). The last side to go on a longer winning streak on the road against Genoa in the top-flight was Sampdoria from 2014 to 2017 (five).

* Genoa have drawn two of their last three league games (L1), as many draws as in their previous 18 Serie A TIM games.

* Genoa’s last home draw in Serie A TIM came in September 2019 (0-0 against Bologna), winning seven and losing 11 since.

* Torino have failed to win any of their opening five games in a Serie A TIM season for the first time since 2007/08.

* Torino are just the second side in Serie A TIM history to have scored at least 10 goals in the opening five games of a season without winning any of those games, after Triestina in 1940/41.

* Marco Giampaolo has won six of his 13 Serie A TIM matches as a manager against Genoa (D3 L4): his joint-most in the top-flight.

* Gianluca Scamacca could become the first player to score in each of his first two Serie A TIM starts with Genoa since Krzysztof Piatek, in August 2018.

* Andrea Belotti has scored the joint-most goals (six) for Torino after the first five games in a Serie A TIM season (alongside Nestor Combin in 1967/68, Valentino Mazzola in 1947/48 and Gino Rossetti in 1931/32); the last Granata player to score at least seven goals in the opening six matches of a Serie A TIM season was Paolo Pulici, in 1975/76.
