Genoa and Udinese are in a safety zone. Genoa won the Serie A Week 26 game on Saturday 24 February 2024 at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium in Genoa, Italy. Genoa have +10 points over Udinese. Genoa reached to 33 points, 13 above the safety quota, 8 from the Europe zone. Udinese just 3 points from Hellas Verona and from the relegation zone.

Genoa closed the match in the first half with goals from Mateo Retegui and Mattia Bani. In the second half, Udinese found themselves with 10 men since the 48th minute after Thomas Thiesson Kristensen got a second yellow card.

Genoa opened the score in the 36th minute. Mateo Retegui defeated Udinese goalkeeper with a right-footed shot to the bottom right corner.

Genoa ended the first half with another goal in the 40th minute. Mattia Bani scored with a headed shot to the bottom left corner. The assist is by Albert Gudmundsson.

  Stats before the game: Udinese have remained unbeaten in their last 13 matches against Genoa in the top flight (6W, 7D): it is the longest unbeaten streak ever for the Friulians against a single opponent in Serie A. Genoa have not won any of the last 13 Serie A matches against Udinese (7N, 6P), drawing all the most recent four; the last longest series of consecutive matches for the Grifone without finding success was against Roma, between 2014 and 2022 (16), while they have not had five matches in a row against a single opponent in the competition since 1990, against Florentine. Genoa have won only one of the last nine home matches against Udinese in Serie A, compared to six draws and two defeats – the success in this part came on 21 February 2016, 2-1 with goals from Alessio Cerci and Diego Laxalt (Ali Adnan for the Friulians), under the management of Gian Piero Gasperini. Udinese have not won any of their last five Serie A away matches against opponents on the right side of the table at the start of the day (D3, L2) – their last away win against these teams dates back to 11 March 2023, 1-0 against Empoli, thanks to a goal by Rodrigo Becão. Genoa have lost only one of their last 10 championship games (W3, D6): 1-4 against Atalanta on February 11th, in the most recent one played at Ferraris.
