Our football match prediction:
Crotone will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over the likes of Fiorentina and Bologna when they square off against Genoa at their Stadio Ezio Scida on Matchday 13. Crotone are six points clear of the relegation zone and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of Sunday’s football match against Genoa. Davide Nicola’s troops have found their form of late and they are definitely capable of beating the Rossoblu at home ground as Davide Ballardini’s men are not regarded as good travelers. Genoa are on a three-match losing run in the Italian top flight and seeing that they suffered a heart-breaking loss to their local rivals Sampdoria before the international break, we are tempted to put our money on Crotone this time out. The hosts have been in a much better form than the visitors in recent weeks and we predict that the Stadio Ezio Scida outfit will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s clash.
