Tomorrow Genoa plays in and against Palermo, with 1415 kilometers the most far way match of the season. Unless the distance and Easter over 100 Genoa-fans follow the team to the capital of Sicily. With Palermo plays ex-Genoano Giovanni Tedesco who played 77 matches and scored 10 goals in our red en blue shirt in the years 2004 till 2006. In January 2006 at the time Genoa played in Serie C-1 Giovanni asked Genoa if he could return to his city of birth: Palermo and Mr. Preziosi gave permission to our very friendly captain who also played many years with Perugia.
Thursday-afternoon Mr. Gasperini and his staff went together with 21 players by airplane to Palermo. Comparing to the match against Inter last Wednesday Criscito (3 weeks out because of injury) and Wilson (not ready to play yet) stayed in Genova, substituted by Rubinho and Leon who scored twice in the homematch that ended in 3-3.
