Crotone hosts Milan in a first-round match of the A Series. The duel is Sunday at 21:45 at Ezio Shida stadium.
Milan's transfer policy paid much attention this summer as they want to return to the top of the A Series. Can they move Juventus from the summit in Calcio this season is the main question that all fans ask themselves before the start of the season. It will probably take some time to move from sixth to first, but they have spent over 200m euros on new players so far. Milan is preparing a deal for Nicola Kalinic to decide his last remaining question. Although they now have excellent defense and many opportunities in the Halvotha line, they have a weaker offensive line. Signing with Fabio Borini and Andrea Silva is not enough for the Rosoner if they want to attack the throne of Juventus.
Krotones had a very different summer after the end of last season was saved miraculously in their first season in Serie A. They lost the key striker Diego Falcinielli, who scored 38% of last year's goals. Considering that they are facing the very strong team in Milan, the hosts will have a difficult task to score and it is possible to see a game with a few hits.
Milan scored an impressive 6-0 victory over Europa League's Shkendia on Thursday, but now they will have trouble doing the same in Kroton. The hosts lost nine times in the league last season, but were never defeated by more than two goals in their own field. Given that they have improved in the last few weeks of last season, we believe that this will be a small game with a few goals in mind and the busy Milan schedule in August.
Prediction: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 2.05 at Bet365
