Crotone vs Parma
Italy Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 22 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Ezio Scida Stadium, Crotone.
Parma have seen their unbeaten streak ended in a thrashing home loss to Juventus (0-4) last week and have little time to recover, travelling to Crotone on Tuesday afternoon. They dropped into the danger zone and sit just five points clear of 18th placed Torino, which will be very worrying despite showing off as a tough side to beat beforehand.
Crociati held off Benevento (0-0), AC Milan (2-2), and Cagliari (0-0) as we got used to some very narrow clashes along the way. They coped well with some of the big guns too and we do expect them motivated to bounce quickly now.
Fabio Liverani’s men have a lot to prove if they’re to build towards the mid-table and this seems like a place to do so.
Indeed, Crotone sit rock-bottomed after 13 games played and they earned just six points along the way. They saw a comfortable loss at Sampdoria after finally doing something in Serie A earlier in December.
Crotone beat Spezia (4-1) and held off Udinese (0-0) in two games beforehand and this will have them hoping they can deny Parma at Ezio Scida Stadium.

Crotone vs Parma Prediction
Still, we feel Parma will have a hard time snatching points on Tuesday and we’ll now rather stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils. We will go for a Draw at 3.40 as we feel it’s more than just a lively longshot, although both sides will be desperate to bag all three here.
With hopes both sides will employ an attacking approach and go for the points, we will also back a YES on Both teams to score at 1.70. Neither side really impressed up front but have struggled to keep it together at the back, which ultimately has us hoping for open spaces at the back and an exciting game to watch.
