Verona vs Crotone
Italy – Serie B
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
The Mastiffs have been concentrating extra hard in their home-ties to get themselves involved in the playoff mix, and the approach has been fruitful. They have put a three-point gap below them, to make it hard for rivals to climb through, and now have got an opportunity to extend it even further.
The Sharks have been a constant presence in the bottom tier since the beginning of the season and looks set to get the boot this summer to Serie C. Their away games have been really off the mark, with their eight-match losing streak coming to an end just the last match-day.
The hosts should look to capitalize on this favorable draw and keep on working with their ‘home-wins’ strategy.
Verona vs Crotone Head-to-head (h2h)
- Five of the last seven wins belonged to I Gialloblu.

- Every game at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi in the last ten years had three or more goals.
- Three of the last four fixtures at this venue saw the hosts scoring two or more times.
Verona vs Crotone Prediction
Hellas is one of the teams in contention for promotion next season, while their opposite number is a frontrunner for relegation. Also, the Scaligers are one of the best home-teams, while their visitors for this tie are one of the weakest groups on the road. Moreover, I Mastini have recorded three of the last four wins and five of the last seven.
I expect the hosts to win this tie on basis of these observations.
Four of the last five matches of the Yellow and Blues had three or more goals, and so did their last three home-ties. In case of the Pythagoreans, three of the last six overall games, and four of the last six away ties had the same stat. And finally, and most importantly, seven of the last eight h2h ties and the last four at this venue had over 2.5 goals each.
Bank on them to repeat the feat.
