SPAL 2013 vs Crotone Match Prediction

By William Hall

SPAL will be looking to get end a four-game losing streak this weekend as they welcome Crotone to the Stadio Paolo Mazza in Serie A. It's been a tough run for SPAL recently, and it has shown picking up no points in their last four games. However, they showed a lot of fight last time out losing 3-2 at home to top of the league Napoli. Crotone have also been having a tough time but put it behind them last time out as they beat Benevento 2-0 on home soil. They will be hoping to back that up this weekend and put back to back wins together for the first time this season. A reaction will be wanted this weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With this being the first meeting between the two sides, it is impossible to bring you any head to head stats. However, with how both teams have started the season, I can't see this being one of the more entertaining games of the weekend. SPAL had a positive start but have dropped off massively losing all of their last four games in Serie A. They will win again at some point this season, and it could be this weekend with Crotone also not in the best of form.

Crotone do come into this game off the back of their first win of the season, but out of all the promoted teams, Benevento do look the weakest. SPAL do look quite strong and look as if they could have enough to stay in the league come the end of the season, but if they are to do that they will need to go out and win games like this. With the two teams this weekend having just eight goals between them in six games, I can't see there being many goals this weekend. With both teams desperate for points at this stage, it could be a very scrappy encounter.

SPAL 2013 Preview

SPAL had a promising start to the season drawing to Lazio and beating Udinese. However, since then they have lost all of their last four games but when you look at who they have been up against, its easy enough to cut them a bit of lack. Defeats to Inter Milan, AC Milan and Napoli would have all been expected but the 2-0 defeat to Cagliari a couple of weeks ago would have been disappointing. This looks their best chance to get a positive result possibly since the first game of the season which makes it huge. If SPAL are to keep their Serie A Status come the end of the season, they must go out and win matches against fellow strugglers. Marco Borriello scored sixteen goals last season for Cagliari but has only been able to get on the score sheet once this time around. The 35-year-old looks as if he is getting past his sell-by date but is still deadly in front of goal.

SPAL 2013 Team News

SPAL will be without three players for the visit of Crotone with Marious Oikonomou (thigh injury), Sergio Floccari (unknown) and Alex Meret (groin injury) all out.

Crotone Preview

Cagliari come into this one off the back of their first win of the season as they beat Benevento 2-0 at Salido Ezio Scida. It took two goals either side of halftime to win the match for the home side, and with another promoted team on the horizon, they will be hoping to get another three points on the board. Away from home, Cagliari have been struggling, losing all of their last three on the road. On two occasions they have been by big margins losing to Juventus 3-0 at the back end of last season before being smashed 5-1 to Atalanta last time out. A lack of goals is whats been hurting the away side this weekend, scoring just three times in six games this season. Between five strikers to have made appearances for the team this season, just one goal has been scored which is disappointing at any level.

Crotone Team News

Crotone have three players out also this weekend with Ante Budimir (knee injury), Aleksander (physical discomfort) and Marco Tumminello (ACL) all sidelined.
