“The victory over Atalanta gave back confidence to the group, who never gave up and always reacted to difficulties,” said the Coach.

“These three points put us in a position of facing the next game with a calmer state of mind. After a long time we can also field Diego Perotti and Leonardo Pavoletti together.”

It could also be the last, as Perotti is widely expected to complete his transfer to Roma next week.

Palermo make their debut under co-Coaches Fabio Viviani and Guillermo Barros Schelotto, having sacked Beppe Iachini and then Davide Ballardini this season.

“I expect Palermo to be compact and it won’t be an easy game. The Rosanero beat Verona last week, proving their quality.

“Now we intend to get back to winning ways on our own turf and put more of a gap between us and the foot of the table.”

Genoa squad for Palermo: Perin, Lamanna, Donnarumma; Ansaldi, De Maio, Izzo, Burdisso, Marchese, Munoz; Capel, Ntcham, Rigoni, Dzemaili, Tachtsidis, Rincon, Laxalt; Gomes, Perotti, Gakpé, Pavoletti, Pandev, Lazovic, Suso
