Atalanta vs Crotone Match Prediction

By William Hall

Atalanta come into this match with Crotone on Wednesday night knowing that nothing but victory is acceptable at home. Crotone lost 0-2 at home to Inter Milan on Saturday as they were held scoreless for the fourth time running. On Sunday, Atalanta drew 1-1 away to Chievo Verona. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Atalanta took all six points last season from Crotone, and they have not lost to them in the last five meetings, though some of them date back in Serie B matches from back in 2006. Atalanta will be big favorites at home, and also because they have a good squad available to them, and will likely get the win over a side that will just be happy to be among the teams included in next season's Serie A. Crotone have yet to score a goal, and that makes winning impossible to do. That's just one thing they need to fix.

Atalanta to win is at 2/7

Atalanta to win and keep a clean sheet is at 10/11

Atalanta scored over 2.5 goals in 6 out of their last 10 games played

Crotone saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta have had to fight for every inch this season, and they will enter Wednesday's match with four points from the four matches. They have had some very tough fixtures to begin their campaign, and even in the more winnable games they have toiled a little. They lost early in Serie against the likes of Roma at home and Napoli away, but those were not poor results by any means. And they looked to have turned it all around with a 2-1 win against Sassuolo two weekend back and then a 3-0 win at home over Everton in the Europa League on Thursday. However, they were once again frustrated on Sunday in a 1-1 draw away to Chievo. Chievo are not a great side, though they are far from awful, and it will be very annoying to Atalanta and its supporters that they were not able to get a victory in that match. In fact, they were forced to fight very hard just to get a point from the match in Verona. Samuel Bastien got them their goal in the 52nd minute, and it looked like a winning goal for some time for Chievo. However, Atalanta would send on Alejandro Gomez, who has been their live wire this season, as a substitute. He would end up taking and scoring a penalty in the 85th minute to ensure they got a point in the end. That goal was Gomez's first of the Serie A season, but he also has two assists in the league to help push hi side forward.

Atalanta Team News

Atalanta will be without left midfielder Leonardo Spinazzola for another few days, while center midfielder Joao Schmidt will be missing until October. Left back Robin Gosens also is out with an injury.

Crotone Preview

Crotone have now played four matches in this Serie A season, and they have earned one point. But the absolute most depressing thing about their season has been the fact that they have scored no goals as of yet. There isn't much a team can do to stay alive in a league when they simply can't score goals. You can only possibly have so many 0-0 draws before you get the sack as a manager, and that is only if things are going right. When they aren't, it could be curtains much quicker than you would want to see them. So, the first priority for this side, who did stay alive last season in the league, will be to find a goal from somewhere. The good news is that they have played fairly good defence of late. They returned from the the international break and they lost 1-0 away to Cagliari. It's not a great result, but they aren't being hammered. They looked to be heading for a second point on Saturday as they hosted Inter Milan, but it was not meant to be. They had held firm at home despite immense pressure from the perfect Milanese side, but they just weren't able to hang on in the latter stages of the game as they tired. Milan Skriniar scored after 82 minutes, and then Ivan Perisic made it two ten minutes later to send all the points back to the San Siro.

Crotone Team News

Defensive midfielder Marcus Rhoden went off injured on Saturday, and he looks set to miss out alongside right winger Andrea Nalini.
