Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sassuolo will be looking to build on a 4-1 win over Spezia when they host Crotone at their Mapei Stadium – Citta del Tricolore. The Neroverdi want to continue where they left last season when they were scoring goals for fun, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the newcomers. Experienced attacker Francesco Caputo, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend, is likely to lead the line for the hosts, while Magnanelli, Romero, and Romagna should miss the game with injury.
Crotone, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Milan and Genoa. The Rossoblu do not seem to be competitive at this level at the start of the season, and given Sassuolo’s attacking potential, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. In their last meeting in the Serie A, back in 2018, Crotone crushed Sassuolo 4-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
