Crotone vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 29 April 2018
Kick-Off: 11:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio Ezio Sciada (Crotone).
Crotone come into this match having secured a 2-1 away win against a struggling Udinese side and will be to continue in the same vein of form as they take on Sassuolo.
The Squali notably pulled off an impressive run last term to scrape by into 17th spot and now in their sophomore term, will be hoping to do it yet again. They sit two points clear of the drop with just four games to go, and will be looking to further extend that gap against the Neroverdi.
Although Sassuolo sit eight points clear themselves, they have had their problems this season. At one point, they were actually in the bottom three but now are on an eight game unbeaten run. Oddly enough, they have fared better on the road than at home, with most of their points coming in their travels. They’re not the highest scoring side but nonetheless the majority of their goals have also come whilst they are away from home.
Crotone have to take on Lazio and Napoli before the end of this season, meaning that they will need to get something out of this game. However, they have struggled to score at home, where they have won just five of their last 17 at this ground. That being said, with survival on the line, Crotone have previously kicked into another gear. Can they do it yet again this time around?
