It’s one of the classic games of Italian Football and it is also number 6 against number 3. Of course it means also Preziosi against his rival Della Valle, or Genoa against the friends of Sampdoria. But most of all it is a very important match for the team of Mr. Gasperini after the unlucky defeat in Torino against Juventus.
Genoa Club Amsterdam has visited this big match twice in the past. The first time in Serie B on Easter-saturday 10th April 2004. Genoa was the winner of this match by 2-1 with goals of Marco Rossi (constantly victim of the songs of his ex-Fiorentina-supporters) and a brilliant one of Giuseppe Gemiti. The second match was in the 1st round of Coppa Italia last season that was decided by a brilliant header of Genoano Giuseppe Greco. This season Fiorentina is without a defeat so far, but they did not visit Luigi Ferraris yet.
