Bologna make the long trip south to the Stadio Ezio Scida to take on Crotone in a round 28 Serie A clash.

The hosts sit rock-bottom of the league, eight points from 17th place. Meanwhile, the Felsinei are 12th in the table, with 31 points so far.

Crotone ended their seven-game losing streak with a 4-2 win over Torino a fortnight ago.

They followed that up with an impressive performance against Lazio last week, only for Felipe Caicedo's 84th-minute goal to give Lazio a 3-2 win at home.

Bologna went undefeated in February but began March with two losses to Cagliari (0-1) and Napoli (1-3).

They faced Sampdoria at home last week, and a 3-1 win was inevitable given the Blucerchiati hadn't won at the Dall'Ara in 17 years.

Crotone vs Bologna Head-to-Head

Bologna have won six of their last nine games against Crotone, with the Calabrians winning the other three. Bologna's last win away to Crotone came in the 2016-17 season, a 1-0 victory at the Stazio Ezio Scida.

The two teams last met in November, with Roberto Soriano's goal earning the Felsinei a 1-0 win at home.

Crotone vs Bologna Predicted XI

Crotone Predicted XI (3-5-2): Alex Cordaz (GK), Lisandro Magallan, Vladimir Golemic, Koffi Djidji; Pedro Pereira, Salvatore Molina, Eduardo Henrique, Jacopo Petriccione, Arkadiusz Reca; Junior Messias, Simy

Bologna Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Skorupski (GK); Takehiro Tomiyasu, Adama Soumaora, Danilo, Mitchell Dijks; Mattias Svanberg, Jerdy Schouten; Riccardo Orsolini, Roberto Soriano, Nicola Sansone; Musa Barrow

Crotone vs Bologna Prediction

Bologna have only one win in their last 10 away games, which should encourage a resurgent Crotone. Serse Cosmi's side have troubled the big teams of late, with Simy in excellent goalscoring form.

Musa Barrow provides a threat as well, with Crotone's defense likely to keep him out. We expect a high-scoring game, with Crotone pulling off a draw.

Prediction: Crotone 2-2 Bologna
