Crotone vs Sassuolo
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ezio Scida, Crotone.
Both Crotone and Sassuolo will be hoping to bring their dreadful streaks to an end on Sunday evening when they take on each other in a low-profile Serie A outing at Stadio Ezio Scida. The hosts are in a very tough position ahead of the remaining part of the season. They have been the worst team in the division so far in the campaign and deservedly hold the very foot of the standings at the moment as a consequence.
I Pitagorici will enter this tie off the back of three straight defeats. They have conceded as many as nine goals in the process. They offered literally nothing in the last weekend’s 4-0 catastrophe against Milan at Stadio San Siro. Giovanni Stroopa’s men have by far the worst defensive record in the league as they shipped 50 goals in 21 league matches so far.
Crotone vs Sassuolo Head-to-head
- Sassuolo’s strikers enjoyed their time on the court when I Neroverdi last played Crotone. It was in early-October last year when Sassuolo claimed a demolishing 4-1 victory on the home patch.
- I Neroverdi generally lead the head to head tie by five victories going into the 14th clash against Crotone.
- The Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option landed in six of the last seven head to heads affairs between these two outfits.
Crotone vs Sassuolo Prediction
Sassuolo are winless in the last six games in all competitions (four losses and two draws), but they are miles away from the relegation scrap.
As a matter of fact, Roberto De Zerbi’s troops are still in the top half of the Serie A standings. Their latest failure came last weekend in a 1-2 home loss to Spezia. Nevertheless, Francesco Caputo & company should have plenty of room to rebound here against the weakest defence in the league.
Caputo took his league tally to 8 goals in 16 appearances after netting his team’s only goal in the last round’s defeat to Spezia. The Italian forward is worth backing to score anytime past such an opposition at the 1.90 odds. You will get the same odds for backing the away win pick which we look as a banker here.
