Crotone head into this match following on from a 0-0 Serie B draw against Reggina.
In that game, Crotone had 56% possession and 4 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. For their opponents, Reggina had 2 shots on goal with 0 on target.
Crotone have been conceding pretty frequently of late, although they have also managed to hit the back of the net themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Crotone have been punished defensively in 5 of them in addition to managing to get on the scoresheet in 5 of those games. That pattern isn’t assured to be sustained here, however.
Leading up to this clash, Crotone:
- have not been beaten in the league by Reggina in their last 8 games. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
- are unbeaten in their previous 3 league matches at home.
- have not won at home in their last 2 league games.
The numbers tell their own story, and Reggina have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 12 goals overall. In defence, Reggina certainly have room for improvement.
Their past results show that Reggina:
- have not registered a win against Crotone when having played them away from home in the previous 5 league games. They really have not been travelling well at all.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 4 league matches away from home.
- are without an away win for the past 3 league games.
