Hellas Verona are looking to end their six-game winless run against bottom-side Crotone

Hellas Verona visit relegated Crotone at the Stadio Ezio Scida in Serie A on Thursday, looking to confirm their survival in the top-flight.

With 43 points from 35 games, Gli Scaligeri are 11th in the standings but not mathematically safe yet. They need just one point to officially achieve that.

Ivan Juric's side haven't won in their last six games though, losing four times consecutively before drawing matches against promoted side Spezia and Torino.

Meanwhile, Crotone are desperate to close out an atrocious campaign that has yielded only five wins, but 27 losses, as they remain rooted at the foot of the table.

However, their only bright spot this season has been Simy Nwankwo, who's scored 19 times in the league. Only four players have scored more goals in Serie A so far this season, but Crotone will face a challenge in keeping hold of him.

Crotone vs Hellas Verona Head-To-Head

There have been 16 clashes between the sides, with Hellas Verona winning twice as many games (6) against Crotone as they've lost (3).

When the sides met in January for the first leg of their clash, Verona secured a 2-1 victory over Crotone.
