Crotone vs Inter Milan
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ezio Scida, Crotone.
Antonio Conte and his men can already open champagne as Inter Milan are all but new Serie A champions.
The Nerazzurri are 11 points clear at the top of the standings with just five games left to play. To add to the party, they travel to Stadio Ezio Scida to play the rock-bottomed and already relegated Crotone on Saturday afternoon. It will be the team’s 19th Scudetto trophy, the maiden since 2009/10 season.
Inter ended a two-draw run with a narrow 1-0 victory over Hellas Verona last weekend. I Nerazzurri struggled badly to break the deadlock on the occasion, but eventually made it count when Matteo Darmian found the back of the net 16 minutes from time.
Conte’s troops did not score two or more goals in any of the last four league outings. This trip to Crotone will give them a fantastic opportunity to change it as I Pitagorici have by far the worst defence in the entre division.
Crotone vs Inter Milan Head-to-head
- Inter bagged as many as six goals when these two sides met each other in the first part of the season at the start of this year at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
- Nerazzurri won three of five clashes against I Pitagorici.
- Interestingly, three of the last four heads to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Crotone vs Inter Milan Prediction
Crotone celebrated their fifth victory of the season seven days ago when they dispatched Parma 3-4 at Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Simeon Nwankwo completed a brace on the occasion to take his league tally to 19 goals this season. The Nigerian forward has been unstoppable in the second part of the season.
Crotone thus have one of the deadliest strikers in the competition and yet there are by far at the foot of the league standings. This statement should say enough about their back line.
We expect a dominant display from the visitors in a festive atmosphere. Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez should have plenty of room to punish the worst defence in the league and exploit its holes. They should both find a way to score at least a goal here.
The main bet is Inter to win by at least three goals difference at the odds of 2.45, while we will also back the Over 3.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 1.90.
