Palermo vs Crotone Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Crotone will be aiming to build on their recent victory in the Serie A when they travel to the Stadio Renzo Barbera to take on Palermo on Sunday evening. Palermo were held to a 1-1 draw on the road at SSC Napoli, despite they took the lead after just six minutes through Ilija Nestorovski. On the flip side, Crotone managed an impressive 4-0 home victory over Empoli last time out thanks to a hat-trick from Diego Falcinelli and an excellent strike from Adrian Stoian. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Palermo Preview

Palermo have been one of the worst side in the Serie A in 2016 and they kicked the new year in a similar manner. The Rosanero enter the fray on the back of a five-game winless streak in the Serie A, losing three and drawing twice in the process. However, they looked pretty solid against Napoli last time out and managed to snatch a point from their trip to San Paolo. Ilija Nestorovski got on the scoresheet once again to increase his tally to 8 goals this season. Palermo’s last victory in the Serie A was a 3-4 triumph on the road at Genoa back in the middle of December 2016. The Rosanero find themselves second from the bottom with just 11 points to their name after 22 rounds, already 14 points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Palermo’s main issue throughout this Serie A campaign, as they hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with 42 goals conceded in 22 league fixtures. They also struggled at the other end of the field, as they only managed 18 goals in 22 rounds. Their home form has been awful, as Palermo are winless in twelve competitive fixtures this season, losing eight and drawing four in the process.

Crotone Preview

On the other hand, Crotone have finally returned to winning ways in the Serie A last weekend thanks to an impressive 4-1 home victory against Empoli. Overall, Crotone have only won three of their 21 league fixtures so far this season. The Pitagorici currently sit in 18th spot in the Serie A table with 13 points after 21 rounds, twelve points behind safety. Crotone somehow managed to score 20 goals this season, but they really struggled at the other end of the field. They allowed 37 goals in 21 rounds, which is one of the worst defensive records in the division. Their away form has also been a problem, as they are winless in eleven away league fixtures this season, losing nine and drawing two in the process. Furthermore, Crotone are winless in the last two visits to the Stadio Renzo Barbera and failed to score a single goal in this term. Head-to-head, Crotone are winless in the last four meetings with Palermo in all competitions. Diego Falcinelli is a player to watch here, as the 25-year-old striker scored a hat-trick last time out and he is now leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 8 goals in his 19 league appearances.

Palermo Team News

Roland Sallai, Slobodan Rajkovic, Andrea Fulignati and Alessandro Diamanti are all doubts, but Edoardo Goldaniga and Geancarlo Gonzalez are both missing through suspension. The good news is that Simone Giuliano is back in training following his groin injury.

Crotone Team News

Marcus Rohden, Federico Ceccherini and Claiton Dos Santos are all doubts, but Aleksandar Tonev is back in training.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Crotone head into this game on a high, while Palermo’s home record in the Serie A this season has been awful. Crotone should be able to snatch a point from this trip, but I’m also backing Palermo to get on the scoresheet as their main striker Ilija Nestorovski has enjoyed a decent Serie A campaign so far.
