Crotone vs Pescara Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The newcomers Crotone and Pescara will square off on Saturday evening, with both sides looking to return to winning ways in the Serie A. Our SBAT preview will bring you a form guide, team news and our betting tips and predictions. Crotone were beaten 2-1 on the road at AC Milan last time out, while Pescara managed a 1-1 home draw against Cagliari.

Crotone Preview

Crotone’s record in this 2016/2017 competitive season has been awful, as they have only won once in their 16 games in all competitions. This sole victory was a 2-0 home triumph over ChievoVerona towards the end of October, but they have failed to win a single game since then. Crotone come into this tie off the back of a four-game winless streak in the Serie A, including a 2-1 away defeat at AC Milan last weekend. Crotone took the lead in the 26th minute through Diego Falcinelli, but Milan levelled the game with just four minutes before the break. M’Baye Niang missed a penalty for AC Milan in the 53rd minute, but Gianluca Lapadula managed to score the winner with just four minutes to go. This leaves Crotone in 19th position in the Serie A table tied on six points with Saturday’s opponents, and are already four points behind safety. Crotone have struggled to keep the ball out of the net throughout this Serie A campaign as they have one of the leakiest defences in the division, conceding 29 goals in 15 league fixtures. The good news is that Crotone have been slightly better at home of late, losing just once in their last three games in the Serie A. A player to watch here is Diego Falcinelli, as the 25-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with five goals and two assists in his 13 league appearances.

Pescara Preview

Pescara were handed a 3-0 victory at Sassuolo, after the NeroVerdi won that game 2-1, but this was their sole victory in this Serie A campaign. The Delfini enter the fray off the back of a 14-game winless streak in all competitions, losing ten and drawing four in the process. However, Pescara managed a good point against 10-man Cagliari last weekend thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Gianluca Caprari. Despite this result, the Delfini still sit in bottom place of the Serie A table tied on 6 points with the 19th-placed Crotone, and four points behind safety. They have struggled at both ends of the field so far this season, but their biggest problems has been in the final third. The Delfini hold the second worst offensive record in the division, scoring just 11 goals in 15 league fixtures. Gianluca Caprari has been Pescara’s most in-form player in front of goal throughout this Serie A campaign, helping the team with 3 goals and one assist in his 15 appearances in the Serie A. Their away form has been awful as Pescara are currently on a five-game losing streak in all competitions, conceding at least three goals in four of these. The good news is that Pescara picked up wins in three of their last five visits to the Stadio Ezio Scida.

Crotone Team News

Claiton Dos Santos and Aleksandar Tonev are both missing through injury, while Djamel Mesbah is a doubt. In addition, Aleandro Rosi and Lorenzo Crisetig are both missing through suspension.

Pescara Team News

Jean-Christophe Bahebeck, Hugo Armando Campagnaro and Andrea Coda are all out through injury, but Alessio Di massimo is back in training.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams have been struggling for consistency throughout this Serie A campaign and both had problems in finding the back of the net. This having been said, I’m expecting a tight affair with few goals scored.
