Crotone are likely to have given up on staying in the division after a fifth straight loss during the weekend. The defeat puts the team 15 points away from safety. Sampdoria remain a strong outfit at home and their last away victory came back in January. Despite such a poor record, Sampdoria would have the extra bit of quality that can help them get over the line with all three points.
Total goals over 2.5
A stunning return of 14 goals in the last six matches provided confidence for Crotone in their fight against relegation, but the team ended up conceding 17 goals during the same period. Such has been the nature of Crotone matches that four out of the last five matches have witnessed figures. There is unlikely to be any changes on this front even if Crotone will be disappointed following five straight defeats.
Both teams to score – yes
Even though Crotone remain at the bottom of the Italian Serie A table, and the team did put up a fight over the last few weeks by coming up with strong performances against the likes of Lazio, Napoli, and Udinese. The form of Simy has been a crucial factor behind this run. Meanwhile, Sampdoria have a habit of scoring in away matches with Lazio and Roma being the only opponents to stop Claudio Ranieri’s men in 2021 away games.
Crotone vs Sampdoria: Team News and Match Preview
The push to avoid the drop created under the regime of Serse Cosmi looks like a failed mission even if the club became extremely close to creating an unlikely story. The 62-year-old is unlikely to give up on trying to discover a winning touch from Crotone, who are a whopping 15 points away from safety. Yet, Serse Cosmi will be able to proudly show off that Crotone have scored more goals than the likes of Juventus and Napoli in the last six matches. Ahmad Benali is the only doubt for this match.
Sampdoria and Claudio Ranieri remain under pressure, but the team has a great opportunity of jumping past Verona – if other results are favourable – by the end of the midweek action. Apart from the mediocre performance against Napoli, Ranieri has been able to extract a decent amount of performance from his players. The former Leicester City boss, though, will be without Albin Ekdal and Ernesto Torregrossa for this game.
