With one win in their last five league fixtures, Crotone will face a tough challenge when they host Roma at the Stadio Ezio Scida in the 24th round of the Italian Serie A.
Tough Game For The Hosts
The hosts have been struggling in the relegation zone for quite some time now. The team have won only one game in their last five league matches. Crotone have collected a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Juventus at home where they lost 2-0.
Crotone are currently sitting in the 19th place in the league table. They have 13 points from 3 wins, 4 draws and 16 losses. The team scored 20 goals and conceded 40 since the start of the season.
Coach Davide Nicola has Lorenzo Crisetig back from his suspension, but has lost Marcus Rohden to injury. Andrea Nalini struggled for game time in the first half of the season but that has changed in 2017 and he is set to start here.
Roma to Grab 2nd Place
The visitors have been in good form lately as they have won four of their last five games. They need to get closed to the flying Juventus so there will be no room for error till the end of the season. Roma have collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Fiorentina at home where they won 4-0.
Roma are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 50 points from 16 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 48 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Luciano Spalletti is expected to revert the team back to the 4-2-3-1 formation they used at the start of the season with both Mohamed Salah and Diego Perotti back available to play.
Head To Head
The time the two teams met was in September 2016 when the final score was 4-0 to Roma at home.
