Genoa vs Inter: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

Inter will top the Serie A table at the turn of the year, but Simone Inzaghi's side will have work to do away at Genoa if they are to end the year on a high.


Matchday 18 is the last set of Serie A fixtures in 2023, and it takes table-toppers Inter to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris to take on Genoa

Simone Inzaghi‘s side lead Juventus by four points and hold an 11-point cushion to third-placed AC Milan. They will be looking to end what has been a good 2023 on another high note in Liguria.

Genoa vs Inter: Predicted line-ups

Simone Inzaghi will have a decision to make around who starts on the right. Firstly, Denzel Dumfries will be evaluated to potentially return, following his injury on Matchday 14 against Napoli at the start of December.

Benjamin Pavard could start, but after Yann Aurel-Bisseck‘s impressive performance against Lecce, there is a debate to be had about him staying in the starting XI.

After his injury against Bologna in the Coppa Italia, Lautaro Martinez will be evaluated but he looks unlikely to start the Grifone. As a result, Marko Arnautovic could be named from the first minute.

Mateo Retegui has not featured for the Rossoblu since their game against Monza on December 10, but he is due to return to the XI. Junior Messias is also ready to return but will do so from the bench.

Inter predicted XI vs Genoa (3-5-2): Sommer; Bisseck, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Carlo Augusto; Thuram, Arnautovic.
