Tips & Predictions For Today, December 15, 2020.
League: ITALY: Serie A – Round 12
Match: 18:30 Udinese – Crotone
Tip: Over 1.5 Goals
Match Result: 0:0 LOST
- Udinese scored the opener for the third straight Serie A (SA) game in their 3-2 weekend win at Torino. That’s somewhat of a turnaround for them after they conceded the opening goal in each of their first six league matches, winning just once (L5). As well as being unbeaten in four consecutive league matches for the first time since March (W3, D1), a win here could actually see Udinese register four straight league wins in a single season since December 2017.
- In fact, there should be a winner one way or another, as Udinese are one of just four SA sides yet to draw at home (W2, L3). However, four of those five matches all saw a slim one-goal margin, with the team leading at HT registering a FT win on three occasions (W1, L2).
- Crotone beat Spezia 4-1 last match for their first win this season (D2, L8) in what was their first game in five to see both teams score. Crotone won the second half 3-0 and scored their first SA goals (two) beyond the 50th minute this term, the first time in 13 competitive matches to see them net over 2.5 team goals (W1, D3, L9 – in 90 mins).
- However, the visitors have lost four of their five SA away matches (D1), failing to score in the last two, whilst conceding exactly four in the first three. Expect a quick start though, as eleven (64.71%) of the 17 goals in Crotone’s away league matches arrived before HT.
- Players to watch: Rodrigo De Paul (UDI) scored his three SA goals inside the 31st-60th minute period. Meanwhile, Junior Messias (CRO) netted a brace last time out with two of his three SA goals this term arriving before HT.
- Hot stat: Each of Crotone’s eight SA losses this term have seen the Calabrian side trailing at HT, while they conceded the opener in seven.
