Crotone – Atalanta

Crotone hosts Atalanta in a match from the 24th round of the Italian Serie A.

After making a true miracle by surviving in the last season of the league, now Crotone will try to do it again. The team is currently 17th in the Serie A standings, being on just 3 points above the 18th SPAL and the relegation zone. Right now Crotone’s position is better than it was last year, but they still have to fight in order to survive.

Right now Crotone has 20 points from 23 games played. Their record in the league is 5 wins, 5 draws and 13 losses. In their last five matches, they won once, made two draws and lost twice. Right now Crotone is in a run of three consecutive games without losing, which is really positive for them.

In their last match, Crotone made a 1-1 draw against Inter at the Stadio San Siro, which was a really great result for the club.

Now have a look at Atalanta.

Last season Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta qualified for Europa League and now they will try to do it again. Right now Atalanta is 7th in the Serie A, trailing on just two points behind the 6th Sampdoria and the Europa League zone. Atalanta’s record since the start of the season is 10 wins, 6 draws and 7 defeats. In their last five games, they have won three times and lost twice. They beat Chievo in the last round, which was a second consecutive win for the Nerrazurri.

Despite being the away team, Atalanta is a slight favourite here. But have in mind that Crotone are in a good shape at the moment, being in a run of three consecutive games without a loss. Can they make it four in a row?
