Verona vs Crotone Serie A Predictions by LeagueLane

Hellas Verona vs Crotone
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi.

Hellas Verona’s progress towards the top and one of Europa League spots was suddenly interrupted in mid-December. Squad has won only one out of the last five Serie A games and slipped to 9th place on the table. There is a solid opportunity ahead to return to winning ways.

The Mastiffs welcome last placed team Crotone, hoping to take three much-needed points. Visitors share those desires though, as they don’t seem ready to give up on relegation hopes just yet. Bookmakers have labelled home team as the favorite in this clash, currently priced at 1.75 to win. Crotone are the only team in the league without one single victory on the road.

Verona vs Crotone Prediction

Verona’s biggest strength is excellent defending. This team is sharing the top spot in the league with Juve and Napoli when it comes to lowest number of conceded goals. Their back line conceded only fifteen times so far, so don’t be surprised to see Crotone held to nil’. Most recent form is also looking solid, having won four points from the last two duels.

First, Mastiffs managed to beat Spezia on the road 1-0 thanks to the goal scored by Zaccagni. The follow up game was also good vs Torino, as they were just six minutes away from taking the win when Bremer scored the equalizer.

Crotone have only nine points on their account and worst goal difference in the league. We don’t see their situation improving any time soon. We will stick with home win and low number of goals at Marc Antonio Bentegodi.
