Crotone hosts Brescia in round 23 of Italian Serie B. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 16th at Stadio Ezio Scida (Crotone)
Crotone spent last season in the top division of Italian football. However, the Pythagoreans turned out to be uncompetitive at this level and scored only 23 points, outranking only crisis-ridden Parma. And worst of all, now Crotone risks falling even lower. But having failed the first part of the championship, the team is trying to improve the situation and catch up with its more successful competitors. After a black streak with one draw and nine defeats, the Sharks managed to beat Pordenone and tied against Como, Parma, and Cittadella. But in the last round, they suffered an away defeat from Reggina (1-0).

In the 2019/2020 season, Brescia managed to return to Serie A. But the Little Swallows stayed there for only one season and dropped to a more familiar level (although they sold the young talent, Tonali, to Milan). Last year was not good enough and brought only seventh place. But now Brescia is among the leaders of Serie B. However, there were too many misfires in the winter, and not only draws (four in the last five matches) but also defeats. Cremonese, Pisa, and Lecce took advantage of this. Nevertheless, the gap to the leaders is minimal.
Brescia has not lost to Crotone since 2015. In the last six head-to-head matches, the Little Swallows gained two victories and four draws. Last year the team tied 2-2 in the cup (the Pythagoreans won a penalty shootout), and then this score was repeated in the championship match in September. The pair is considered quite equal in strength. And the clubs are not in the best shape now, so the option with Under 2.5 goals scored suggests itself.
