Crotone face Juventus at Ezio Scida Stadium on Wednesday, April 18. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
With six games remaining, Juventus are closing in on a seventh straight Serie A title. Napoli’s draw over the weekend extended the Black and Whites lead to six points. On Wednesday, Juventus travel to Crotone, who are in a relegation battle. Crotone are 18th, one point from the safety zone.
Crotone fell 1-0 to Genoa, their six loss in their last eight games. The Sharks have been offensively challenged this season. The club has scored only 29 goals in 32 games, the fifth fewest in Serie A. With leading scorer Ante Budimir sidelined with a broken foot, Crotone will look to Marcello Trotta to break down the vaunted Juventus defense.
Juventus extended their lead atop Serie A, defeating Sampdoria 3-0. Massimiliano Allegri’s side have been incredible this season, scoring the most goals in Serie A and allowing the fewest amount of goals. Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain have combined for 36 goals. However, with Juventus playing Napoli on Saturday, Allegri might decide to rest the Argentina duo and start Mario Mandzukic. The Croatian striker has been on fire lately, scoring twice against Real Madrid in Champions League and against Sampdoria on Sunday. Defensively, the Black and Whites have allowed only 18 goals this season, including only three goals in Serie A since the calenders changed to 2018.
