Crotone will be wanting a better result here following a 4-1 Serie A defeat in their last game at the hands of Sassuolo.
In that match, Crotone had 46% possession and 15 attempts at goal with 6 on target. The only player to score for Crotone was Simeon Nwankwo (49'). Sassuolo got 7 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Domenico Berardi (19'), Francesco Caputo (58', 85') and Manuel Locatelli (93') scored for Sassuolo.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Crotone have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Crotone have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 13 goals on the way. Historical results aside, time will tell whether the trend will persist here in this game.

Team News: Crotone
Emmanuel Rivière (Calf Problems), Ahmad Benali (Calf Injury) and Denis Dragus (Corona virus) won’t be available for Crotone gaffer Giovanni Stroppa. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Aristóteles Romero and Mattia Mustacchio.
Team News: Juventus
Juve manager Andrea Pirlo has to choose a team with limited availability. Aaron Ramsey (Muscle Injury), Weston McKennie (Corona virus), Alex Sandro (Hamstring Injury), Cristiano Ronaldo (Corona virus) and Matthijs de Ligt (Shoulder Injury) can’t be considered.
Our thinking is that Juventus have it within them to get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the other end, Crotone might well find it difficult to score but we can see them managing to get on the scoresheet, too.
We’re predicting a comfortable 1-3 win for Juventus when all’s said and done.
