Tip Reasoning

Can Roma carry on their midweek form, after tearing apart Fiorentina 4-0 on Wednesday night? That was a thumping win and it also helped them get over their last away outing, after slipping up away to Sampdoria two weeks ago. They need to toughen up on the road in order to have any chance of catching Juventus, which is still their ambition. However, with seven points separating the top two, it’s hard to see much of a title race, unless the challengers can kick start an incredible run of form.

The Giallorossi have a chance to boost their away form this weekend, as they travel to a Crotone side who aren’t playing that well at their own ground. They’ve lost 55% of their outings at the Enzo Scida, winning just three of their home games. All of those victories came against struggling teams. The hosts have lost five of their last seven league games ahead of this clash, while all of those defeats have been to nil.

Crotone’s struggles should continue when they host the second placed side. The hosts were beaten here by Juventus in midweek, a game which saw fans attempting to check in to the hospital beside the Enzo Scida in order to watch from the windows. It’s worth trying again, as this visiting Roma side are pretty impressive. They’ve won five of their last six league games, and they’re now the second highest scorers after their 4-0 thrashing of Fiorentina. They could add a few goals to that tally this weekend, with Crotone conceding two or more goals in 45% of their home league games.

The gulf between these two sides should ring through in the final score. A big margin is likely on Sunday morning, especially with Crotone looking destined for a swift drop to Serie B. Roma have won by two or more goals in 60% of their away victories, while 67% of the home side’s defeats have been by a two goal margin. That has us backing the visitors to win with a -1.25 Asian Handicap, which is priced at 9/10 with bet365.

After their high scoring midweek exploits, we’re also backing the Giallorossi to rack up a few goals here. We’re backing a 3-1 win for Roma as our correct score prediction, that’s priced at 10/1 with bet365.
