Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Crotone were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Inter in Milano, but they eventually conceded three late goals in the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza clash (0-3). The newcomers remained in last position in the standings, but they are just five points behind the “safe zone”. Sunday’s football match against Torino is of big importance for the rock-bottom team and we predict that the hosts will fight tooth and nail in order to return to winning ways in the national championship. Torino proved their worth in a 5-1 win over Cagliari at the weekend and thanks to the triumph they moved a little closer to the Europa League places. Il Toro are just three points behind top five in the Serie A standings and they are likely to go for a win in Sunday’s football match against Crotone. The newcomers have been struggling at the back this season and we predict that fans will see goals galore at Stadio Ezio Scida.
