Crotone vs Fiorentina Match Prediction

By William Hall

Crotone welcome Fiorentina to Stadio Ezio Scida this weekend in Serie A. Crotone come into this game having failed to pick up maximum points in their last four outings, losing both of their previous two games. The sides most recent defeat came away to Roma, losing the game 1-0. It was a much-improved performance from their previous loss which came in a 5-0 thumping to Sampdoria, but they will need to show more this weekend if they are going to break down and beat Fiorentina. The away team this weekend have won all of their last three games with a 2-1 win over Udinese, and then back to back 3-0 wins over Benevento and Torino. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With the recent form of the last two sides, it is clear which side should go out and get the points this weekend. Crotone have been less than impressive in the last couple of the weeks and quite frankly have failed to show much fight in the matches. Fiorentina, on the other hand, have looked like they are playing with confidence once again as well as a lot of swaggers. With the side also scoring a lot of goals, I worry for Crotone as a lack of goals has been a major problem for them up to now which makes me feel they won't have a reply if they do go behind. Here are my favourite betting tips and predictions for the game.

Crotone Preview

Crotone have managed just one win so far this season and are currently out of the bottom three on goal difference only. Back to back defeats coming into this game would have taken a huge hit on the confidence of the players, but they must dust themselves off this weekend if they are to have any chance against an inform and confidence Fiorentina who won't take any prisoners this weekend. With the side scoring just six goals and conceding twenty, you can tell there is a big problem at the club at the moment when it comes to the strength of the squad.

Crotone Team News

Crotone have three players out this weekend with Aleksander Tonev (muscle injury), Oliver Kragl (thigh injury) and Marco Tumminello (ACL) all out.

Fiorentina Preview

Fiorentina have been very good of late winning all three of their matches which has left them in a good position at this stage. 34-Year-Old Thereau is showing age is not a factor in football with an impressive four goals in just eight games so far this season. His experience seems to have rubbed off on 22-year-old Argentina Simeone who has managed to score two goals after coming off the bench for the majority of the campaign. With a club the size of Fiorentina, they need to be challenging for European places, and recent form would suggest they are on the right track to do just that.

Fiorentina Team News

Fiorentina will be without just two for the trip to Crotone this weekend with Riccardo Saponara (foot injury) and Cyril Thereau (hamstring injury) sidelined.
