Crotone vs Hellas Verona Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Two teams that will have been favored to be relegated come season's end meet on week two of the new season after each saw defeat in the opening weekend. It might be too early to call it a six-pointer, but this match between Crotone and Hellas Verona could be telling when the points are tallied. Crotone began with a 3-0 loss away to AC Milan. A fifth minute red card for Federico Ceccherini did no help for them as they ended up keeping the ball just 24% of the time in the end. Hellas Verona faced another title hopeful in Napoli. They ended up losing that match 1-3 at home. Giampaolo Pazzini registered their goal from the spot after 83 minutes, but they were never a true threat to last season's third place finishers. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hellas Verona have lost just twice out of the 11 times these teams have played to date, and they have won their two most recent meetings, though they came in 2016 and 2013, respectively. The teams have changed a lot since then, though, so take them for what they are worth. Hellas might just have the advantage in this match as they have a proven commodity up front in Pazzini. Even at his advanced age, he knows how to find the back of the net. Crotone found goals hard to come by last season, and they might do so again here. Hellas Verona to win is a good punt, and they are at 2/1 to do that away from home to Crotone. A scoreless draw is also in with a good shout, and that can be wagered on at 15/2 odds.

Crotone Preview

No one at Crotone will be happy with what happened last week. Before they were even out of the gate, they were reduced to ten men and it was already damage limitation for them. They had to make a tactical change right away, and all plans to actually combat Milan were over right then and there. Milan never had to get into high gear in the match, and Crotone never got a hold of the ball. So, for all intents and purposes, this is going to be their debut match of the season. And it's a big one, as they could just need these points come the end of the season when the relegation battle has heated up.

Crotone Team News

Crotone will be without center back Federico Ceccherini after the red card against Milan last week.

Hellas Verona Preview

Hellas Verona had a tough home match against Napoli last weekend, and it went about as well as expected. The Naples side's front line and midfield is just way too strong to be dealt with by many top clubs, so freshly promoted Hellas Verona were always going to find it nearly impossible to get anything from the match. What they did get was goal from veteran Giampaolo Pazzini. The 33 year old, it will be hoped, can go the same direction that Luca Toni did toward the end of his career by contending for the top scoring honors and helping the team score vital goals throughout the entire campaign.

Hellas Verona Team News

Hellas Verona have lost just twice out of the 11 times these teams have played to date, and they have won their two most recent meetings, though they came in 2016 and 2013, respectively. The teams have changed a lot since then, though, so take them for what they are worth.
