Crotone vs Lazio
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Orogel Stadium Dino Manuzzi, Cesena.
After a short break, Italian Serie A resumes this weekend. The first match of round number eight is taking place at Ezio Scida where table strugglers Crotone welcome in-form Lazio.
Visitors have recovered from a poor start and collected seven points in the last three appearances.
The most recent draw against Juventus in Rome was quite dramatic, and thanks to mistake of Dybala, enabled them to score a late equalizer.
Can they continue climbing towards the top?
Bookies are offering 1.66 odds on the away win at the moment.
Crotone vs Lazio Head-to-head
There were only four previous head to head encounters between Crotone and Lazio. The Sky Blues have 2-1 advantage in terms of victories.
Three out of four games have ended with three goals total or more. The most recent one was in 2018 at this stadium when Crotone were members of Serie A. Full-time result was 2-2.
Crotone vs Lazio Prediction
Hosts have found themselves in a rough spot already. Even though we are still in the early stages, two points won in seven matches and worst -11 goal difference in the league are surely worrying factor.
The only two times they managed to avoid defeat was against Torino and Juventus.
Coach Giovanni Stroppa is under a lot of pressure lately, especially after getting eliminated from Coppa Italia. Crotone lost to SPAL on penalties a couple of weeks ago.
The only player who offered some sort of consistency is Nigerian striker Simeon Nwankwo. He scored three goals in seven games so far.
As for their opposition, Lazio SS are currently 9th on the table with 11 points, six behind the table leaders AC Milan. As mentioned above, their form improved in late October. They managed to beat Bologna (2-1) and Torino (4-3) consecutively despite having a lot of issues with sidelined players back then.
We are expecting Lazio to continue with their progress and collect all three points against Crotone on Saturday.
