Competition: Italy Serie B

Match begins: 17:00 (UTC)
Venue: Stadio Ezio Scida (16108 seats)

Crotone are eager to increase their points at their own stadium in this soon-to-be-played game hosting Vicenza.

Insights:
  • Crotone have played more matches over 2,5 goals home than away.
  • Vicenza is in the worst form (0-1-5)

This could be an exciting fixture with lots of spark and bustle as both contenders are well renewed since they last played a game. Let's go!

Vicenza have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1100 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

Crotone form and stats

Crotone's results here at Stadio Ezio Scida in the Serie B have been very modest with 1 victory, 4 draws and 2 defeats.

No payout for Crotone in their previous match, an away game at Perugia that ended in defeat 0-2. Marco Sala was "man of the match" with a rating of 7.14 out of 10. The defender Sala hit two key passes and won 5 of 8 duels.

In the match before that, Crotone hosted Monza and drew the game 1-1.

This is expected to be a close game, with Crotone perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Crotone as a small favourite), we find eight games. Crotone has won three of these, drawn four and lost one.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Crotone as they are travelling to their away game against Ternana in the Serie B. That match is three days after this one.

Crotone are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 8 goals in 7 games. Crotone have conceded 12 from these games.

Vicenza form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Vicenza so far with only 3 points returning home. The records show 1-0-6 (win-draw-lose). Three has not been a lucky number for Vicenza as they have been defeated three times in a row since the Monza match.

Vicenza might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Brescia proved too strong as Vicenza slumped to a 2-3 defeat in front of their own fans at Stadio Romeo Menti. Vicenza had apparently made the football gods angry before the game against Brescia, losing the match after hitting the woodwork three times. Midfielder Filippo Ranocchia was the best performer of that match, with a rating of 7.11. Ranocchia hit the woodwork once, hit one key pass and dribled past the opponent 1 of 2 times.

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Ascoli wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Vicenza playing away and similar expectations, we found nine relevant matches. Results were four Vicenza wins, three draws and two defeats.

A quick return to home after this game, as Vicenza are hosting Benevento in the Serie B only four days away.

Vicenza find the net regularly in their away games. 8 goals from 7 away fixtures in the league. The Vicenza manager C. Brocchi has some worries about the defense as 16 goals have been conceded in these travels. When Vicenza is visiting a side on the bottom half, 3 of 4 matches have ended with three or more goals. These are matches against SPAL, Alessandria, Parma, Vicenza, Cosenza and Pordenone.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Crotone three wins, five draws and Vicenza two victories. As for goals, three matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), seven games had two or less.
