Crotone is hosting Lazio at Stadio Ezio Scida in round 8 in the Italian Serie A.
Crotone is the newcomer to Serie A, and they are not having a good time. Crotone hasn’t won any of their last 8 games, and they have conceded 17 goals in their first 7 games of the season. Crotone is in the last place with only 2 points, and they are still winless this season. In their last Serie A game, Crotone was playing against Torino on the road, and they have had 52% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and 83% of the correct passes. Crotone was solid in this game, and they managed to get a point out of it. This game ended in a 0-0 draw. Nwankwo is the leading goalscorer for Crotone with 3 goals, while Molina, Reca, and Vulic added 1 assist each. Molina will miss this game because of the Coronavirus, while Luperto, Mustacchio, Mazzotta, Gomlet, and Romero are all suspended because of the red and yellow cards. Crotone is not doing well, but there is still plenty of time for them to get out of the relegation zone, and they are only 3 points away.
Lazio is on a 6-game streak without a loss, and they are slowly climbing the standings. Lazio is in 9th place with 11 points, 11 scored goals, and 13 conceded goals. Lazio is doing better in the Champions League, and they are in 2nd place with 5 points. Caicedo and Immobile have each scored 3 goals for Lazio, while Milinkovic-Savic added 2 goals. Adam Marusic has added 2 assists. Proto and Escalante are injured, while Strakosha and Milinkovic-Savic are in quarantine because of the Covid. Di Gennaro, Lulic, Durmisi, Kiyine, and Bari are all suspended. In their last game, Lazio was hosting Juventus, and they were a slightly better team with 54% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Juventus got ahead in the 15th minute, and they were defending well, but fortunately for Lazio, they were able to score a goal in the 95th minute, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Lazio is still far away from their form from the last season, and injuries and suspensions have had a huge impact on that, but I think Lazio will get back on track soon, especially if they advance past the group stage in the Champions League.
Crotone hasn’t won any of their last 9 games, and they haven’t won any of their last 4 home games. Crotone and Lazio have played 4 times against each other, and Lazio has won 2 games, while Crotone won 1 game. I can’t side with Crotone in this game despite Lazio playing in the Champions League next week. We are getting Lazio at a good price, and I’m taking it.
