Our match prediction:
Monday’s clash at Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia pits together Crotone and Atalanta, the two teams who suffered defeats in midweek. The newcomers are eager to record their first ever win in the Italian top flight and we predict that the hosts will go all guns blazing at the Orobici in Monday’s football game. Atalanta suffered a shocking loss to Palermo on Wednesday evening, but they are certainly capable of beating Davide Nicola’s troops on Matchday 6. Crotone are undisputedly the worst team in the Serie A and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered this time out. The two teams meet for the first time ever in the Italian elite division, but you should bear in mind that Atalanta emerged triumphant in two of their last three meetings in the Serie B. A man to watch in the away team will be Franck Yannick Kessie, who has been in a thrilling form this season.
