Crotone is hosting Atalanta at Stadio Ezio Scida in round 6 in the Italian Serie A.
Crotone is still winless this season in Serie A, and they are in the last place in the standings with only 1 point, 5 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals. The latest loss for Crotone came against Spal in Coppa Italia. In their last Serie A game, Crotone was playing against Cagliari on the road, and they have had 57% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 3 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. This was a good game, with an eventful first half where we saw 5 scored goals. Crotone also conceded a red card in the 48th minute, and they ended up losing this match 3-2. Nwankwo is the leading goalscorer for Crotone with 2 goals, while Riviere, Messias, and Molina added 1 goal each. Reca and Molina have 1 assist each. Dragus is the only injured player for Crotone at this time. Being the newcomer is not easy, and I’m sure no one in Crotone expected this to be easy, but I believe they expected more from their team in the first 5 games. It’s still early in the season, and Crotone can turn things around, but they need to do it as soon as possible.
The dense schedule is getting the maximum out of this Atalanta team, and they have won only 1 of their last 4 games. Atalanta is on a 2-game losing streak in Serie A, and they are now in 6th place with 9 points, 15 scored goals, and 12 conceded goals. In the Champions League Atalanta is doing well, and they are in second place with 4 points, 6 scored goals, and 2 conceded goals. In their latest Serie A game against Sampdoria at home, Atalanta has had 66% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Atalanta was the dominant team in this match, but their defense was sloppy, and Atalanta has lost this match 1-3. Caldara and Carnesecchi are the only 2 injured players for Atalanta at this time. Gomez has scored 4 goals and added 2 assists for Atalanta so far this season, while Muriel, Hateboer, Zapata, and Lammers have each added 2 goals. Palomino, Gosens, and Zapata have each also added 2 assists. Atalanta is struggling a bit on the defensive end, and that is because they don’t have the depth to compete consistently in two big competitions, but Atalanta is still a good team, and it’s only a matter of time before they get back on the winning track.
Atalanta is the favorite here, and deservedly so. Crotone is not playing well, and that is what most of their season will look like. Atalanta hasn’t won their last 2 games in Serie A, but I think they get back on the winning track here.
