The Viola, despite their ups and downs, haven’t also given up hope of somehow managing to secure a Europa League berth. It looks like a tall order, but in actuality they’re just three points away from a top seven spot with still some ways to go, and so anything could happen between now and May. They will be obviously aiming to mount that late challenge at Crotone’s expense, who are desperate to make their stay in the top flight a third one.

However, Crotone have lost nine of their 13 away games and Fiorentina have an overall solid home record. Yes, there was that shock 4-1 defeat to Hellas Verona, but they have won six out of their home fixtures this term.

Still, scoring goals continues to be a problem for the Gigliati. They only just narrowly edged out Benevento 1-0 in their last home game and young forward Giovanni Simeone has been suffering from a long-standing drought. Nonetheless, they’re taking on a side who have lost three of their last four league games and have failed to score in nearly half of their away games. In fact, only Benevento, Verona, Genoa, Sassuolo and Chievo have scored fewer goals than Crotone’s 27 this term.

Fiorentina vs Crotone: Head-to-head

  • There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 6 of Fiorentina’s last 7 home games
  • Crotone have lost five of their last seven away league fixtures (W1 D1)
  • Fiorentina have won their last 3 matches

Fiorentina vs Crotone: Prediction

Fiorentina narrowly edged out Benevento, who have lost every single away game so far this season. Crotone, meanwhile have failed to score in nearly half of their away games. Fiorentina have also struggled for goals – and have scored no more than one goal in their last five home games – so this looks set to very low-scoring encounter.

Fiorentina vs Crotone: Bet tips

  • Under 2.5 goals at 2.02
  • Fiorentina – WIN at 1.48.
