Fiorentina vs Crotone
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 23 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
There is not a better time to face the rock-bottomed team in the league than now for Fiorentina. They have suffered a catastrophic 6-0 defeat to Napoli last weekend and will be desperate to rebound as soon as possible.
Can Cesare Prandelli find the way to lift his team’s spirits and guide them to the win after such a dreadful performance?
The story is completely opposite with Crotone who should go into the tie in much higher spirits following a demolishing 4-1 victory over Benevento. It was only the third win of the season for Giovanni Stroppa and his troops who have thus ended a dismal three-loss streak on the occasion.
Crotone are now just two points shy of the safe zone. Can they take advantage of the momentum and pull off an upset at Dacia Arena?
Fiorentina vs Crotone Head-to-head
The two teams have met each other only four times so far. Fiorentina won two, drew one, and lost one match so far.
It’s been three years since these two sides have last locked horns. Back then, Viola claimed a 2-0 victory on the home patch.
Fiorentina vs Crotone Prediction
Despite the last weekend’s demolishing win over Benevento, Crotone still enter this game as underdogs. They have a dreadful away record. The team took only two points in nine league matches on the road this term.
Crotone also have by far the weakest defensive record in the entire league. They shipped 41 goals in 18 games so far in the season.
Fiorentina will be highly motivated to wash their hands from a terrible display in the aforementioned loss to Napoli. We would not be surprised to see them net multiple goals on Saturday evening.
Crotone conceded 11 goals in the last three away losses to Sampdoria, Inter, and Verona. Viola’s win by two or more goals difference looks tempting at the odds of 2.85, while you can also take advantage of the massive 1.95 odds offered on the Over 2.5 goals FT pick.
