Bologna vs Crotone
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Renato Dall’Ara Stadium.
Bologna have seen a Coppa Italia thriller at Renato Dall’Ara Stadium midway through the week, as they conceded two extra-time goals to suffer a 2-4 loss to Spezia. They now return to Serie A and host Crotone, hoping to capitalize on the rivals’ woes early in the new campaign and bounce to the winning ways yet again.
Rossoblu beat Sampdoria (1-2) last week and earned their second win in three league outings, only beaten by Napoli (0-1) with a single goal along the way. Sinisa Mihajlovic will want more from his men, though, as they struggle to keep clean sheets and lag well behind the top 6 already.
Crotone sit rock-bottomed and have just two points to their name. They held Torino to a surprising goalless draw ahead of the International break but suffered a 0-2 loss to Lazio after it, which will be more worrying. We’ve seen some narrow clashes on their end lately but they have very little to be happy about and we feel it will be just about the same as they leave Bologna on Sunday.
Bologna vs Crotone Head-to-head
The sides last met in December 2018 and Bologna bagged a convincing 3-0 win in Coppa Italia.
Crotone bagged two wins in a row beforehand, though, securing six points in two 2017/18 clashes.
Bologna last beat Crotone in the league back in January 2017, when they snatched a 0-1 win at Ezio Scida Stadium.
Bologna vs Crotone Prediction
We will now back Bologna to secure the points and going for them to beat the struggling visitors feels like a banker bet at 1.61. They have struggled for consistency but still kept scoring goals, which has us hoping Sinisa Mihajlovic and his men have what it takes to outgun the visitors.
Crotone have been scoring goals on the road and we do expect an exciting occasion at Renato Dall’Ara Stadium once again. With that in mind, we’re going for goals and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT & BTTS at 1.95. We’ve seen Bologna enjoying such games on the regular and we hope to see more of the same now.
