In the last match, they lost with Sassuolo away by (2-1), after having lost at home in a game against Udinese by (0-3).

Crotone have won only three matches during this edition of the Italian Championship, and now they are in a very negative moment, coming from four consecutive defeats, when they scored only one goal, thus showing problems in the offensive sector. This has in fact been one of the team’s major hurdles so far in the competition since they have not been able to take the scoreline in nine matches and now have the third worst attack. In his last confrontation, the team finished half of the opponent’s time, and even having a good defensive performance, they ended up defeated away from home by Sassuolo. The club has been carrying horrible numbers in the league: it is the one that misses the most passes, has the worst average possession of the ball, and is also the one that ends the least. A 4-4-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Mandragora.

The team allowed their opponents’ goals in 7 of the last 10 games for this competition, so they have not been very strong defensively. In their away games there is a tendency to have goals, since 7 of their last 8 games by the competition finished with More than 1.5 goals. This is a team that scores a few times first: just opened the scoring in 4 of their last 16 games for Serie A TIM, and never reached the break in advantage.

Chievo have not been doing a great campaign in the Italian Championship, having shown a rather irregular performance so far. The club went undefeated for six games but now has only one win in the last seven games and has not scored a goal in the last two. Thus, we can see that the offensive sector has been responsible for this unsatisfactory performance of the team, since it has left to balance the adversary network in five games, and is now among the eight weakest in the competition. In the last round, the team was dominated by Roma in the home, but still managed to hold the goalless draw. Playing out of their dominions, the club has captured less than 40% of the points played thus far, and in that condition it has one of the seven defenses more leaked.
