Trapani vs Crotone
Italy – Serie B
Date: Friday, 31 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Polisportivo Provinciale.
The Maroons are placed 19th in the table, and if they hope to extend their stay in the Serie B for one more season, they need a win at any cost in this final match-day.
Teams placed 18th to 20th are relegated to the Serie C, while the 16th and 17th placed squads are given chance to compete in the relegation playoffs. As such, Fabrizio Castori’s men need to make sure that they finish 17th.
It helps that the two teams just above them are taking on each other in this final game week, and thus, at least one of them are expected to drop points. As such, a win this Friday will in all probability let the Maroons stay in the Serie B.
But unfortunately, they are pitted against the runners-up of the season, the Grecians. The in-form guests of the day will easily take advantage of the desperation of Castori’s men, and record a win this weekend.
Trapani vs Crotone: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 3-0 win for the Grecians.

Trapani vs Crotone: Prediction
Castori’s men are desperate for the three points this Friday, and this mentality will be mercilessly be exploited by their opposite number. In fact, the Grecians are on a 13-game unbeaten run, and nine of these were wins as well.
With playoffs around the corner, the team will definitely not let go of their invincible run now. Moreover, they had also won the reverse fixture with a 3-0 scoreline, and they also had scored a total of eight goals from their past two road trips this campaign.
Likely, expect a Crotone win this weekend.
However, the Maroons are in form at the moment, and especially so at this venue. They are desperate to avoid relegation, and will keep attacking till the final whistle. Expectedly, this will leave a lot of spaces behind for the visitors to take advantage of.
Likely, expect goals in plenty this weekend.
