Juventus vs Crotone predictions-Juventus played out a 0-0 draw with Barcelona in midweek, which left them in a little spot of trouble in the Champions League. Sporting Lisbon are level on points with the Italian champions, who would have expected to be through by now. The Old Lady now need to win in Greece against Olympiakos to secure their place in the last 16, which is poor for the side who were beaten in the European Cup final less than six months ago.
Juve have been struggling on both fronts, as they try to become a more attacking, dominant side rather than relying entirely on their defence. They’ve certainly succeeded in being more attacking, as their 37 goal haul in Serie A is higher than free-flowing leaders Napoli. However, the champions aren’t happy with the fact that they’re third, and they could drop as low as fifth if the two sides behind them win their games in hand.That puts a lot of pressure on them to see off Crotone on Sunday night.
Given that the visitors have lost four out of six away games so far, we can’t see them pulling off an upset against the champions. However, they’ll be confident of scoring after grabbing three goals in their win over Bologna in their last away game. Juventus do have an issue at the back, thanks to their chance in approach. The hosts have conceded in three straight home matches, slipping up in six of their last seven league matches.
Juventus vs Crotone predictions
While Juve are at risk of conceding, they should be confident going forward. This is a Crotone side who have conceded five times in two separate away trips this term, leaking 15 goals across their six away trips. The visitors have seen over 4.5 goals in half of their away games, while there have been at least four goals in 54% of Juve’s league games so far this season. That has us thinking that backing over 3.5 goals in the best way to go here, given how poor the Calabrians are at the back on their travels. Our Juventus vs Crotone predictions offer the most insightful information concerning this game.

With Juve looking to commit more men forward, they could be caught out once again here. It seems like the aura around them is slipping, and that gives Crotone a chance to grab a goal here. After all, newly promoted sides SPAL and Benevento have come away from Turin having scored against the champions in the last two Serie A games at this ground. We think you can get great value on Crotone to strike here, as we’re backing a Juve win and both teams to score.
