Likely lineups

The match between Genoa and Cosenza will close the 28th day of Serie B. Kickoff at 8:30 p.m. at the Luigi Ferraris. On the one hand, the Grifone, fresh from the scoreless draw with Cagliari, which is looking for the three points to move back to second place alone with a one-point lead over Bari. The Calabrians arrive at the match galvanized by their derby win over Reggina and want to continue their race toward salvation.

In the hosts’ ranks Gilardino will have to deal with several absences. In the backline, the coach should present a 3-man defense composed of Bani, Vogliacco and Dragusin. In the offensive phase Puscas will act as the first forward with Gudmundsson and Yalcin behind him.

Several unavailable for the guests as well. Viali is expected to rely on Nasti in attack with Marras and D’urso in the three-quarter. In the midfield, space is given to Brescanini, Voca and Florenzi. The latter, however, could start initially from the bench as a precaution ahead of the next match with Spal. In that case Cortinovis would be ready.

Probable formations

GENOA (3-4-2-1): Martinez; Bani, Vogliacco, Dragusin; Sabelli, Sturaro, Badelj, Haps; Yalcin, Gudmundsson; Puscas. All. Gilardino.

COSENZA (4-3-2-1): Micai; Rispoli, Rigione, Vaisanen, D’Orazio; Brescianini, Voca, Florenzi; Marras, D’Urso; Nasti. All: Viali.
