Crotone vs Benevento Prediction

Benevento are enjoying a great season in the top-flight after a gap of three years. Crotone, on the other hand, have not enjoyed the same fortune in their return to Serie A.

Though the visitors have only scored three goals more than the hosts, they have made them count and have also been better defensively.

We predict a win for the visitors thanks to their great away form this term.

Prediction: Crotone 1-2 Benevento.
