Genoa had the better chances in a goalless draw away to Sassuolo, rattling the crossbar and forcing a great save with 15-year-old Eddy Salcedo Mora.
It was not an inspiring start to the season for new Neroverdi boss Cristian Bucchi, as the hosts seemed sluggish and static.
The Grifone were short-staffed, but still came closest to taking a victory with Davide Biraschi blasting on to the crossbar.
Coach Ivan Juric gave 15-year-old Salcedo his debut and the teenager almost scored the winner in stoppages, stinging Andrea Consigli’s gloves.
