Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Saturday’s football match at Stadio Ezio Scida pits together Crotone and Atalanta, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 season. Crotone’s main goal is to secure yet another Serie A survival, while Atalanta are eyeing a top-four finish. The Rossoblu made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only one point from possible 15, and it is no wonder bookies seem them as big underdogs in Saturday’s clash.
The Orobici, on the other hand, are eager to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Napoli and Sampdoria, and they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Considering that influential attacker Josip Ilicic has returned to contention after overcoming some personal issues, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. Dragus has been tested positive for coronavirus for the hosts, while Gollini (injury), Caldara (injury), and Carnesecchi (coronavirus) should miss out for the visitors.
