Juventus will do battle with visiting team Crotone at Allianz Stadium in the Serie A meeting on Monday.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Juventus v Crotone are shown below (including the best match odds).
Juventus won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 2-1 Champions League loss in their previous game against Porto.
In that game, Juventus managed 66% possession and 12 shots at goal with 5 on target. The only player to score for Juventus was Federico Chiesa (82'). FC Porto had 8 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Mehdi Taremi (1') and Moussa Marega (46') scored for Porto.
Their most recent results reveal that things are going according to plan in the Juventus defence. Juve have kept it tight, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their last six clashes standing at 4.
A look at their previous results shows us that Juventus:
- have not registered a win against Crotone in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- have not been beaten in their last 4 home league matches.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Sassuolo in Serie A competition, Crotone will be aiming to make amends here.
In that game, Crotone had 36% possession and 6 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Crotone was Adam Ounas (26'). Sassuolo had 23 attempts at goal with 4 on target. Domenico Berardi (14') and Francesco Caputo (49') scored for Sassuolo.
In a total of 6 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Crotone, three or more goals have been struck. The overall average goals scored per game in that spell is 3.5, with the number of goals averaged by Crotone standing at 1.17. Such a trend isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, however.
Coming into this contest, Crotone haven’t won away from home in the past 12 league games. It's not a good run at all.
Head to head
Looking at past results between these clubs stretching back to 17/02/2007 tells us that these encounters have been disappointments for Crotone. They’ve not managed to register any wins at all whereas Juventus have dominated them, getting wins in 67 per cent of those games played.
In all, 17 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 15 of them for Juve and 2 coming from Crotone. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.83.
The previous league game featuring the two was Serie A match day 4 on 17/10/2020 when it finished Crotone 1-1 Juventus.
On that occasion, Crotone managed 46% possession and 10 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. The scorer was Simeon Nwankwo (12').
At the other end, Juventus had 11 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Álvaro Morata (21') scored.
The referee was Francesco Fourneau.
Team News: Juventus
Giorgio Chiellini (Calf Problems), Paulo Dybala (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury), Leonardo Bonucci (Muscular problems), Arthur (Leg Injury) and Juan Cuadrado (Biceps femoris muscle injury) won’t be playing for Juve gaffer Andrea Pirlo. Adrien Rabiot is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Crotone
Crotone boss Giovanni Stroppa has to choose a team with limited availability. Koffi Djidji (Unknown Injury), Giuseppe Cuomo (Thigh Problems) and Ahmad Benali (Adductor problems) are not ready for selection. Aristóteles Romero will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
In this match, Juventus will probably dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
However, Crotone are also probably going to find it difficult to get shooting opportunities but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be being dangerous at times.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 3-1 margin for Juventus at the conclusion of the game.
