Italian Serie A match preview - Crotone vs Atalanta

Italian Serie A match preview – Crotone vs Atalanta. Saturday October 31, 2020 at 14.00 BST time at Stadio Ezio Scida.

Atalanta need to get back on track after two consecutive Serie A defeats, while Crotone crashed out of the Coppa Italia midweek.

La Dea are finding the balance of domestic competition and the Champions League more difficult to handle this time around, as coach Gian Piero Gasperini took responsibility for excessive squad rotation in the home loss to Sampdoria.

A fightback from 2-0 down to hold Ajax 2-2 on Tuesday boosted confidence to a degree, but they continue to look rusty.

Crotone were also in action on Wednesday in the Coppa Italia Third Round, going to extra time with SPAL before losing on penalties. It wasn’t the result they needed after a 4-2 Serie A defeat to Cagliari.
