Despite defeat to Lazio, Genoa president Enrico Preziosi is confident they will finish in the top four.

"I am 100 per cent sure that we will qualify for the Champions League," Preziosi told Datasport.

"We have been playing without Diego Milito for weeks and when he comes back he will help us reach our objective.

"The other teams around us have had difficulty too. Roma struggled on Sunday and were helped out a little."
