21′- Hellas counter-attack led by Tameze serving in the area of Caprari, who aimed for the far post but caught the woodwork with a shot that was fouled by Sirigu.
25′- Tameze anticipates in the Melegoni area. Genoa tried to chase a draw, but it was always the hosts who gave off a dangerous feeling.
