Crotone vs Napoli
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Ezio Scida Stadium, Crotone.
Napoli haven’t managed to punch their ticket to Europa League knockout stages despite taking an early lead at AZ on Thursday, travelling to Crotone with a 1-1 draw behind them. We have seen a dominant display against Roma (4-0) beforehand and Gennaro Gattuso will hope his men can build on it, as they look to challenge the top 4 in Serie A.
Partenopei have been in good shape on the road and only ended a streak of four away games earlier this week. Still, we’ve seen some very narrow occasions along the way and this could prove another such contest, despite obvious differences in quality and ambitions. The visitors will want to impress up front but we don’t see them really dominating the field all the game here.
Crotone sit rock-bottomed and earned just two points in six Serie A games since mid-October. Still, we’ve seen some tough games at this ground as they held off Juventus (1-1) and did the same to Torino (0-0) on the road. They saw losses to Lazio (0-2) and Bologna (1-0) since the break, which could be a tough pill to swallow and we don’t see them bouncing from it now either – despite another solid challenge expected.
Crotone vs Napoli Head-to-head
Napoli beat Crotone with a one-goal margin on both occasions as the sides last met in 2017/18.
Crotone last snatched points in Serie B, when they beat Napoli (2-1) at this ground.
We have seen three goals in three of the four games played in Serie A since then.
Crotone vs Napoli Prediction
We will now back Napoli to capitalize on the rivals’ goalscoring woes and we will go for them to snatch important points on Sunday. We don’t see it as a walk in the park, but we will go for an Away win to Nil at 2.40 as Partenopei keep their third clean sheet in five trips across competitions on the day.
Crotone have struggled for points but couldn’t be seen all over the pitch on any occasion lately. With that in mind, we’re hoping to see them solid at the back once again! We will go for few goals on Sunday afternoon and also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at generous 2.50.
