Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Out-of-form Crotone will be aiming to put an end to their four-game losing run in the Serie A when they welcome Chievo at their Stadio Ezio Scida on Sunday afternoon. Walter Zenga’s men are determined to secure yet another top flight survival and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail against Chievo. The Mussi Volanti did well to hold Roma to a goalless draw at the weekend, with the team bouncing back from a heavy 5-0 loss to Inter. Rolando Maran’s men have been producing fine displays in the Serie A this season and despite the fact that their performances on the road leave a lot to be desired, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors as they proved their worth in the draw with the Rossoneri. You should bear in mind that the Mussi Volanti are after their third away win of the season.
