Promoted Crotone managed only three wins in their first 29 games but 10 points from their last four has seen them move up to 18th, five points behind Empoli and safety. Milan, on the other hand, aren’t in the best form as they lost 2-1 at home to Empoli last time out, meaning they’ve won just two of their last six and so they remain in 6th.
Crotone’s sudden burst of form has come despite the fact that three of their last four have been on the road. All three of their previous wins had come at home and they won their only home game during their current unbeaten run, beating Milan’s city rivals 2-1 at the Stadio Ezio Scida. As a result, it’s somewhat surprising to see Milan odds-on for the three points here, especially given the respective form of these sides in recent weeks.
Milan have won only two of their last nine on the road and were held to a draw at bottom of the league Pescara in their penultimate away game. They’ve scored more than once in just one of their last seven on the road, whilst they’ve kept a clean sheet in just two of their last 13 on their travels. We’re backing Crotone to maintain their unbeaten run and pick up at least a point here by siding with them on the double chance.
