Spezia vs Crotone Prediction & Match Preview

Spezia vs Crotone
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco, La Spezia.

Spezia have a match point on Saturday afternoon when they host the rock-bottomed Crotone in the 30th round of Serie A.

The Aquilotti are seven points above the red zone line at the moment and can make a massive step towards securing another top-flight campaign with a victory here against Crotone.

Vincenzo Italiano’s men have already done a lot by beating Cagliari in a direct relegation six-pointer 2-1 in their previous home game.

The hosts backed up such win with a decent display last weekend away at Champions League hopefuls Lazio, but were unlucky to concede an 89th-minute penalty and eventually lose 2-1 at Stadio Olimpico. Their rivals have a mission impossible to annul a nine-point deficit and save themselves in the remaining nine rounds of the season.

Spezia vs Crotone Head-to-head

  • Spezia lead the head to head tie by four wins ahead of their 16th encounter with I Pitagorici.
  • Nonetheless, Crotone claimed a demolishing 4-1 victory when the two sides met each other in the first part of the season.
  • The Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score landed in each of the last three head to head encounters.

Spezia vs Crotone Prediction

Crotone are by far the weakest travellers in the entire division and backing their rivals is always a good idea when they play outside of Stadio Ezio Scida. They took only 2 points from 15 league games on the road this term.

Also, they have by far the worst defensive record in the league as well, having shipped 74 goals in 29 matches so far in the season. Crotone conceded at least three goals in four of the last five Serie A affairs. They allowed two or more goals in eleven consecutive league games.

Since Spezia notched two goals in three of the last four league fixtures on the home patch (two wins and draws apiece in the process), we have no other option but to back the home win at the odds of 1.75 here.

We will alternatively go with the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score bet at the 2.00 odds knowing that such a scenario has happened in all of the last three H2H games between the two outfits.

Spezia vs Crotone Bet Tips

  • Spezia to win @ 1.75
  • Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score @ 2.00.
