Bologna vs Crotone (By: Enzo)
Bologna is now in problems, coming from a 4:1 defeat away to Sampdoria. They actually weren't as poor as the final result shows, but the effectivity in front of opponents goal should be improved. They are on a run of seven matches with no win dropping down to the 18th position with just two points behind safely placed Empoli.
Crotone was an underdog in a game away to Cremonese and the things got worse since the end of the first half when they stood playing with a man less. Their hosts completely took control since then and sealed the deserved victory in second. This was now sixth consecutive game with no win for them in Serie B, being at play-out position for the moment.
Home team continues to miss midfielder Barreto (10/0), while the guests continue to miss midfielders Nalini (7/1) and Benali (7/1). Both teams are set to rotate the starting eleven for this one.
Neither of the teams is in a good form ahead of this one, but I still see Bologna as far more competitive side. They are both inside the relegation zone in their leagues, but lack of effectivity should only make it worse for Crotone. Bologna not to concede inside ninety minutes in probably an ugly game is my first call here.
