Crotone vs Benevento Match Prediction

By William Hall

Serie A sees the two bottom teams go head to head this weekend as Crotone welcome Benevento to Stadio Ezio Scida. With the two clubs having one point between them this season, I can't see this being one of the most entertaining games of the weekend. Crotone come into this one of the back of a 5-1 thumping away to Atalanta which made it three defeats in a row whereas Benevento made it five straight defeats with a 4-0 loss at home to Roma. Even at this stage, things aren't looking good for either club, meaning three points here will be huge. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With both sides out of form, I can't see there being much joy in front of goal for either side. The strikers for both sides will be feeling sorry for themselves and with both sides without a win, losing may be becoming a habit for some players. Although a lot of experts say winning is a habit, losing can be too, and for both sides, it is essential to get out of that as quickly as they can.

Crotone and Benevento need a win to get their season's underway, and for both teams, it is a great chance to do so. This game will be down to the side who wants the win more. Although they have had a shocking start, a win in this one could take them out the bottom three which is a confidence booster for the players which could turn either sides season around.

Crotone Preview

There is not much positive to say about the start to the season Crotone have had. THey have lost four out of five games, drawing the other one. That one draw came at home to Hellas Verona in the second game of the season. After that point, many thought they would start to push on but three defeats later, they will be desperate for a win. It's scoring goals that is proving the biggest factor with Crotone managing to score just once in five matches, and even that would have come easily with Atalanta already 4-0 up. This is a massive opportunity for Crotone to get three points on the board, but it is also a big chance for their opponents.

Crotone Team News

Crotone have just the two players out this weekend with Andrea Nalini (fitness) and Aleksander Tonec (ill) sidelined.

Benevento Preview

I think it's fair to say Benevento are finding life hard in the top flight of Italian football very hard, losing five on the bounce and conceding ten in the last two games. Confidence will not be high at all at the moment, but they must pick themselves up and win games like these if they are to give themselves any chance of staying in the league come the end of the season. Benevento have also scored just one goal this season, but have conceded a lot more than their opponents which is a worrying sign. They will need to try and keep their opponents out this weekend and catch them on the break as I can't see there being many goals in this one.

Benevento Team News

Benevento will be without just one player this weekend with Amato Ciciretti recovering from a muscle injury.
