Our football match prediction:
Crotone were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Lazio at Stadio Olimpico at the weekend, but Ciro Immobile eventually scored a late winner for the capital club. The newcomers do not seem capable of escaping the relegation zone, but Saturday’s football match against Bologna could be the turning point for the rock-bottom team. Crotone defeated Pescara in their last home game in the Serie A and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Bologna. Roberto Donadoni’s men failed to upset Juventus in Turin in their last league fixture, but the visitors are widely expected to grab something from Saturday’s clash against Crotone. Both teams are likely to go for a win and we predict that fans will see a real football festival at Stadio Ezio Scida. It has to be noted, though, that Bologna recorded a 1-0 win over Crotone in the reverse fixture.
