Verona - Cremonese forecast and analysis
On Monday night, a kind of derby will be played in the Italian Serie A.
This is the derby at the bottom between the teams of Verona and Cremonese.
Cremonese is the only team in the Calciotto still without a win this season after 16 games played.
During that time, they recorded 7 draws and 9 losses.
However, they are still in the penultimate position in the table. 1 point ahead of today's host Verona.
The Yellow-Blues have picked up just one win so far this season (1-3-12).
But it was against another team involved in the battle for salvation - Sampdoria, again as hosts.
After the point won at the visit of Torino last round, now Verona will be ambitious to reach the victory.
Especially against such a weak opponent as Cremonese .
Verona - statistics and info
Verona's new manager Marco Zaffaroni has finally ended the team's long losing streak.
That came after a hard-earned draw in Turin last Wednesday.
The Yellow-Blues took the lead almost as soon as they got the chance.
When Milan Djuric rose above everyone in the box to head in a cross from a corner by Darko Lazovic.
After the restart, Djuric again had an excellent opportunity, but his low shot was blocked.
And Fabio Depaoli couldn't quite direct his header to the edge of the goal.
But Miranchuk fired a veritable ground-to-air missile from outside the box to give Torino the equaliser.
Moments later, Verona could have regained the lead.
But Lazovic failed to get a header right from Josh Doig's cross at the back post.
The football players of Zaffaroni showed what they are capable of.
So we might see a good performance from them in this match against Cremonese as well.
Cremonese - statistics and info
Cremonese had some good chances to score in their first match of 2023, which they failed to convert.
But at least they looked to record a prestigious goalless draw at home to Juventus.
However, Arkadiusz Milik scored a great goal for the Bianconeri in stoppage time.
And so it brought another clean win for the Old Lady.
Despite the disappointment of the loss, El Cremo showed that they will not give up without a fight .
Although falling short of the lifeline seems almost overwhelming at this stage.
Because the first team over the line (Spezia) is already 7 points away.
But there is still a lot of football to be played before the end of the season. And with a positive streak of victories, the miracle can become a reality.
What better time to start this than the match against the other team mired in the limelight - Verona.
