The trip of 11 days of Genoa in England was a big succes. Goalkeeper Mattia Perin didn’t take any goal in the 3 matches against West Bromwich Albion (0-1, goal of Lodi), Aston Villa under 21 (0-2, goals of Velocci and De Maio) and Stoke City (0-0).
Next Saturday Genoa plays in the third round of the Coppa Italia in Stadio Picco against Spezia that plays in Serie B. In the 2nd round Spezia beat Pro Patria (Serie C-1) with 4-2 after extra time (2-2 after 90 minutes). The last time both teams played against each other was in Serie B in the season 2006-2007 when Genoa first lost in Marassi (1-2, goal of Adailton) and did win the return in La Spezia (1-2, goals of Di Vaio and Criscito).
