Away Team Stats
Faring slightly better than its opponent, Crotone is still a slip away from Serie B. The highlight of this season for Nicola’s team was represented by the two consecutive wins against Bologna and Fiorentina. However, Genoa and Juventus quickly put Crotona down with two consecutive defeats. On top of the lacking defense, Crotone’s attack is also on the rocks, since the team wasn’t able to find the net of either one of its last two opponents.
On the road so far in the cup, Genoa managed to secure a win against Cesena. Similarly, Crotone got past Piacenza with a 2-1 victory to show for it. However, the biggest challenge is yet to come. Whoever wins tomorrow’s showdown will have to go against one of the biggest names in Serie A – Juventus.
With both teams’ defense seriously hindered, lots of goals are to be expected. Moreover, both are fighting to avoid experiencing one of their worst seasons yet in this competition. Also, Crotone , as well as Genoa will leave their hearts on the field in order to pick up the pace and advance as much as possible in the cup competition.
