Genoa have Domenico Criscito back and Stefano Sturaro makes his first start since April this evening against SPAL.
Criscito returns to captain the side after missing Genoa’s last five games with a hamstring injury.
The wait has been even longer for Sturaro, who returned to the Rossoblu last season in a €18m deal but had been out since April with ruptured knee ligaments.
Elsewhere, new kid on the block Kevin Agudelo continues alongside Andrea Pinamonti up top.
SPAL, meanwhile, are without suspended defenders Nenad Tomovic and Thiago Cionek, but Federico Di Francesco returns in attack.
Sampdoria’s win and Lecce’s draw have cut both sides further adrift of safety in Serie A, making a victory here for either team crucial.
SPAL: Berisha, Felipe, Sala, Vicari, Reca, Strefezza, Kurtic, Missiroli, Valdifiori, Di Francesco, Petagna
Genoa: Radu, Zapata, Criscito, Ghiglione, Cassata, Lerager, Romero, Radovanovic, Sturaro, Agudelo, Pinamonti
