Crotone vs AC Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ezio Scida.
Start of the new season has been flawless for AC Milan. The team is performing really good on both fronts, winning the initial Serie A and Europa League matches without conceding one single goal.
Can this be the year where Rossoneri could return to the path of old glory?
Hosts have just returned to Serie A, earning direct promotion last season as 2nd placed team. Can they survive for at least one year though?
The initial performance was absolutely terrible, so no one is really surprised to see such high 7.00 odds on home win here.
Crotone vs AC Milan Head-to-head
These two teams locked horns only five times in the past – once in Coppa Italia, while remaining four were part of Serie A in 2017 and 2018.
AC Milan were much more successful, having won four encounters, while only one of them ended without a winner.
Crotone have scored only three goals in those duels, while conceding 10. That leads us to the average of 2.66 goals per duel.
Crotone vs AC Milan Prediction
Four out of those five encounters ended with BTTS or Over 2.5 FT, so don’t be surprised to witness a goal fest on Sunday.
Crotone had a lot of games in Serie B last season that included high number of goals. They even demolished lower division team Vibonese 6-1 in a friendly match recently.
The premiere performance in Serie A didn’t end up so well though – Genoa defeated them easily 1-4. The only goal for Crotone was scored by Emmanuel Riviere.
The biggest danger for the hosts is definitely coming from Croatian striker Ante Rebic in the absence of Zlatan who is tested positive for Covid-19. These two players combined have scored 21 goals in the previous Serie A edition.
Milan had more than good 10-3-6 record on the road last season. We feel they will snatch all three points from Crotone, but also concede at least one goal during the process.
