Crotone vs Napoli Preview

Crotone vs Napoli

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Ezio Scida

Date: 29th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Crotone have almost nothing going for them this season.

They have a serious relegation fight on their hands and head into this game without any points taken from the top 6 sides in the league this season.

They have lost to all 5 of the top six teams they have played this season, not scoring in any of those games and they lost heavily to both AC Milan and Udinese at home.

They face a Napoli side that has conceded fewer goals than Juventus and it is hard to see them getting more than 1 goal in this game.

Crotone have lost four of their last five meetings against Napoli.

Napoli have bounced back to winning ways and are also vying for the Scudetto once again.

The Naples based side had slipped up in the title race after some poor showings but with most of their title challengers also faltering, they are back at the top and looking to consolidate their position there.

Their fans will be hoping that they can end year 2017 with a win.

The last 12 months have seen the Partenopei rise to the top of Italian football through the help of some of their stars like Dries Mertens who is enjoying a really good year.

Juventus remain their major challengers after Inter Milan and AS Roma both suffered losses over the weekend.

Napoli have a five points cushion over third place Inter Milan.
