Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Crotone play host to Pisa at their Stadio Ezio Scida in the Serie B round 8. Crotone are still eyeing their first win of the season, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. Defender Simone Canestrelli, who scored a brace in the 2-2 draw with Ascoli, is sidelined through suspension, with Romania international Vasile Mogos pushing for a start. Pisa, on the other hand, aim to retain top position in the standings.
The league leaders made a flying start to the season, and given Crotone’s shaky defence, we believe that away win should be considered. In their last meeting in the Italian second tier Crotone defeated Pisa thanks to Simy’s late goal, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. A man to watch in the away team will be Lorenzo Lucca, who has netted six goals so far this season.
Highlighted Player (Alex Cordaz):
Alex Cordaz is an Italian goalkeeper who plays for Crotone, who returned to the Serie A at the end of the 2015/2016 season. Cordaz was born in Vittorio Veneto on 1 January 1983 and he started his youth career at Inter. He played one game for the Nerazzurri in the Serie A and in 2006 he joined Treviso.
After making 18 league appearances for the club from 2006 to 2009, he joined with Swiss side Lugano on a free transfer. The 188-cm-tall goalkeeper played 56 league games for Lugano and in 2011 he returned to Italy as he signed a contract with Cittadella. As expected, he established himself as a first-choice goalkeeper and he made no less than 80 league appearances for the club between 2011 and 2013.
Alex Cordaz currently plays for Crotone and it has to be noted that he made 42 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Serie B campaign.
