Crotone vs Benevento – Serie A Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Match Day 18 encounter, with Crotone taking on Benevento on Sunday the 17th of January, 2021, at Stadio Ezio Scida.

Crotone visited Hellas Verona last weekend, knowing that their mission was particularly difficult. It did prove so, as they were 2-0 down just 25 minutes into the game. They got a goal back early in the second half, but… nothing more than that; 2-1, final score. Their current form reads; LLLWL. They are on just nine points from 17 matches, at the very bottom of the table. They have 2W, 3D and no less than 12L, having now lost three games in a row. Goals, 17 scored, 40 conceded. Only Parma have scored less than them this season, and no team has done worse than them defensively. No wonder they are at the bottom of the table… Coach Giovanni Stroppa played a 3-5-2 formation in Verona, with Junior Messias and Riviere up front. It was the former, the Brazilian, who scored Crotone’s only goal, in the 55th minute. That was his sixth of the season, from 17 Serie A appearances. He had exactly as many goals last season in Serie B, but from 34 games.

Benevento hosted Atalanta last weekend, they knew they would need to play a… perfect game to even salvage a point (let alone win), but in practice, Atalanta proved too strong for them. Final score, 1-4. Having written that, it’s worth mentioning that Benevento equalized 1-1 in the 50th minute, and Atalanta did not retake the lead before the 69th minute. Still, the difference between the two was obvious on the pitch. Their current form reads; LWLWW. They are on 21 points from 17 matches, 10th in the table before Saturday’s games. They have 6W, 3D and 8L, with 20 goals scored and 30 conceded. Coach Pippo Inzaghi played a 4-5-1 formation against Atalanta, with Lapadula up front. It was Sau who scored Benevento’s only goal, his third of the season from 14 Serie A appearances (he has started in only four of those matches).

Last season’s Crotone vs Benevento (in Serie B) was a 3-0 win for the hosts. Eight months earlier, in the reverse fixture, Benevento had won 2-0 at home.

A 1-2 victory for the visitors is predicted at full-time.

Date: Sunday, 17th of January, 2021.

Venue: Stadio Ezio Scida

Kick-off time: 15:00 (GMT+2).
