Crotone vs Genoa
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ezio Scida.
Crotone saw a glimmer of hope two weeks ago when they shockingly pit four past Benevento in their best showing of the season. The victory brought them closer to the safe zone, but I Pitagorici still have a mountain to climb to save themselves from relegation come May.
They did return to the losing track last weekend, but the head coach Giovanni Stroppa had something positive to find in a narrow 2-1 loss at Fiorentina.
The team conceded two early goals but showed a fantastic spirit to battle until the very final whistle, even pulling one back midway through the second half.
Crotone’s top-flight destiny could be significantly shape on the basis of the outcome of Sunday’s home tie against Genoa.
Rossoblu will also be in the relegation scrap by the end of the season. They are currently four points above the danger area but only thanks to the last weekend’s narrow home win over Cagliari.
Crotone vs Genoa Head-to-head
- The hosts will be playing against the head to head tradition here.
- They won just 1 of 14 previous clashes against I Rossoblu, losing as many as 8 in the process.
- Genoa claimed a demolishing 4-1 victory when they met I Pitagorici in the first half of the season.
- Genoa are on a run of four subsequent victories over Crotone.
- Just one of the last four H2H encounters has seen more than one goal scored.
Crotone vs Genoa Prediction
This will be a completely different match from the one we’ve watched in September. Crotone look in a much better shaper at the moment. They have an in-form striker in the like of Simeon Nwankwo who bagged three goals in the last two league appearances.
If you are going for the anytime goalscorer bet, the Nigerian forward is probably your best shout here.
The visitors have improved their defensive showings of late. They kept back-to-back clean sheets against Atalanta and Cagliari, a form that could move us away from the mentioned anytime goalscorer market.
Instead, we will back the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 1.72. Home win or Draw double chance also looks great at 1.53.
