Crotone vs Genoa Prediction
Crotone's struggles at both ends of the pitch have continued. They are the fifth-lowest scoring side in the Italian top-flight and have shipped in 43 goals in 19 games. Only Schalke and West Bromwich Albion have conceded more across Europe's top five leagues.
Genoa are getting their campaign back on track and have kept three back-to-back clean sheets. With the hosts struggling to find their shooting boots, it seems they will keep another clean sheet here.
We predict a win for the visitors, though the game might be a low-scoring one.
Prediction: Crotone 0-2 Genoa
