Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Roma continued their impressive form with a 1-0 win away at Torino. Coming on the back of an impressive 3-3 draw at Chelsea in midweek the Champions League game, Roma earned a priceless win at a stadium where they haven’t won in previous four attempts.
On the other hand, Crotone’s mini recovery came to and with a 5-0 humbling defeat at Sampdoria. The team picked up a win and two draws from the previous three games prior to the defeat. However, they managed just 6 points from the 9 games so far and are struggling to move away from the relegation zone.
In the Serie A, Roma picked 6 wins from their 8 matches so far. The two defeats in the period came at home, to Napoli and Inter Milan, the teams occupying the top two spots in the league table.
Crotone are yet to win an away game this season. The drew in one of the four games against the newly promoted Spal, while the three defeats came by conceding 11 goals.

Roma vs Crotone: Prediction
AS Roma are yet to find their rhythm under Eusebio Di Francesco. But they have what it take to see off a side like Crotone, especially with the match being playing in their home turf.
However, I doubt if they can blow off Crotone as Eusebio is expected to rotate the squad as this is the Roma’s fourth game in the space of ten days.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 Roma for 7.00 odd.
