Tip Reasoning

Chievo were beaten 4-1 by Roma last weekend, which left them in the drop zone with only three matches to play. That loss pushed them to sack Rolando Maran as they try to avoid the drop to Serie B. They’re in awful form, but will they be able to turn things around with a victory over Crotone on Sunday? The visitors are up to 15th as they aim to pull off a really impressive comeback from the edge of relegation. It took a huge effort for them to come back from the brink last term, and that experience could fire up the Calabrians ahead of a crucial trip.

Meanwhile, Chievo have three matches to climb out of the bottom three. They’re only a point shy of SPAL, but the nature of this round of fixtures means this is make or break time for both sides. The hosts are without a victory in their last six matches, which probably influenced their decision to make a change. They will be hoping for a new manager bounce, but can these players get around their mental block against Crotone?

The home side are the only team in Serie A to fail to claim a point against Crotone across last season and this season. They’ve suffered three defeats in encounters since the Calabrians jumped in to the top flight last season, and that’s got to worry the Flying Donkeys, who are already in a tough battle to stay up. Given that they’re trying to punch above their weight in terms of resources or stature, there’s every chance that they’ll be rooted in the bottom three for the rest of the campaign.

Things aren’t likely to improve for the Verona-based side, as they’ve got some awful form behind them going in to this one. Two victories in their last 22 matches has put Chievo in this situation, and we see that run continuing. After all, Crotone have lost one of their last five matches, which has seen them win on three occasions and claim a point against champions Juventus.

Chievo seemed to start a turnaround after Sampdoria and Cagliari lost here earlier this year, but that’s been their only two victories at this ground since November. We can see in form Crotone coming away from here with a result, given that the Flying Donkeys have failed to win in 12 of their 17 home matches so far. We’re backing Crotone on the Double Chance market, along with a 2-1 victory for the visitors.
