Match Preview

  • Crotone lost 6-2 to Inter Milan upon resumption of Serie A (SA) action, with the result halting a run (W2, D1, L1) that landed 77.78% of their points this campaign. That loss saw Crotone score first and still lose, making it the third occasion on which they’ve dropped points after scoring first (W2, D1, L2).
  • Overall, Crotone have conceded 4+ goals in five SA games, which is at least two more than any other side. Only one of those has come at home venue, though, where Crotone have won their last two league matches and could win three in a row in SA for the first time ever.
  • Extending that could be a tough proposition, however, as Roma have won seven of their last ten SA games (W7, D1, L2). So too have they won the most successive SA games against promoted sides (24). Strong starts remain Roma’s overriding theme, with ‘La Lupa’ having kept a first-half clean sheet in eight of their last ten SA games.
  • Furthermore, Roma have managed to win 80% of the SA games which they’ve netted the match opener (W8, D1, L1). Overall, Roma’s road trips have averaged a league-high 4.14 total goals per game to date, with five of seven SA away games producing over 3.5 total match goals (with three yielding over 4.5!).
  • Players to watch: Junior Messias has scored a brace in each of Crotone’s last two home games, netting four of their six goals in the process. In opposition, the Armenian road warrior Henrikh Mkhitaryan has scored one and assisted two goals in Roma’s last two away fixtures.
  • Hot stat: Crotone have conceded a fifth of their SA ‘goals against’ beyond the 75th minute.
