Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 20 March 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Ezio Scida (Crotone)
Crotone remains bottom of the Serie A table despite spirited fights in their last two games. The last game in the league ended in a 3-2 defeat away to Lazio. Home games remain their silver lining though, as Crotone have picked up 100% of their wins and 86.67% of their campaign points (13/15) here, whilst scoring 60% of their SA goals (18/30).
Bologna has pick up 11 points from their last seven games (W3, D2, L2) as they continue their push for a top half of the league finish this season. They will look to extend their impressive form against their host whose struggles has seen them seemingly lose the relegation battle for this season.
Bologna have picked up points in 90% of the Serie A matches in which they scored first (W6, D3, L1), however, they have been 1-0 down at HT in nearly half of their Serie A fixtures (13/27). Their form on the road will be a source of concern as they have only won just once across their last ten Serie A away trips (W1, D4, L5), conceding first in all five losses, four of which came via a two-goal margin.
Crotone’s front man, Simy has netted five of their last eight Serie A goals, with three arriving before the 30th minute mark. Roberto Soriano who netted Bologna’s last goal in their previous two matches, each time after the 65th minute will also look to be a key contributor to this game.
- Crotone’s form in last 5 matches: LWLLL.
- Bologna’s form in last 5 matches: WLLWD.
PREDICTION: Draw/Away and Over 1.5
