Crotone is welcoming Inter to Stadio Ezio Scida in round 34 in the Italian Serie A.
After 6 straight losses, Crotone has won a game, but they will still get relegated. Crotone is in last place in the Serie A standings with 18 points, 42 scored goals, and 83 conceded goals, which is an average of more than 2 conceded goals per game. Crotone was playing against Parma on the road in their last game, and they have had 43% of ball possession in that match, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4n big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. With an outstanding first half and 3 scored goals, Crotone has almost gambled everything away when Parma tied the score in the 54th minute. With another scored goal in the 69th minute from the penalty spot, Crotone has won this match 3-4. Nwankwo is the leading goalscorer for Crotone with 19 goals, while Messias added 8 goals and 5 assists. Di Carmine is the only injured player for Crotone as of right now. Crotone has displayed some solid offense this season, but their defense simply wasn’t even close to being good enough for Serie A, and we will not be seeing them in this league next season.
After bringing some excitement to Serie A with 2 draws in a row, Inter has won their last game, and now the title race is truly over. With 79 points, 72 scored goals, and only 29 conceded goals, Inter is at the top of the table, and Atalanta is now closest to them with 11 points less. Inter is undefeated in their last 14 games while winning 11 of those 14 games. Lukaku is the leading goalscorer for Inter with 21 goals and 9 assists, but he has been in a goalscoring slump lately. Martinez has 15 goals. Kolarov is still injured for Inter. In their latest Serie A game, Inter was playing against Verona at home, and they have had 49% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. We knew Verona is a good defensive team, but I expected more from Inter in this match. It took a while for Inter to score, but they did in the 76th minute, and that was enough for a 1-0 win. Even though Inter has a massive advantage, they still have a few tough games to play, and they need to remain focused because everything could change. If they win it, this would be the first title for Inter in over a decade, and it would be a big one because they would end Juventus’ reign.
Inter is in great form, at least score-wise, and they have lost only 1 game on the road so far this season. Crotone is on a 3-game losing streak at home, and their defense is just terrible. If Lukaku doesn’t get back into the goalscoring form here, I’m not sure when he will. I see Inter getting another win, and considering Crotone’s defense, I see Inter scoring more than one goal here.
