Crotone surviving the pressure winning the Serie A Week 11 game against Spezia on Saturday 12 December 2020 at the Ezio Scida in Crotone, Italy.   Crotone being in the last position with only 2 points looking for answers to climb positions.  This is a very important home victory for Crotone because it is their first win this season in Serie A after being promoted from Serie B. Crotone reaching 5 points!

Crotone and Spezia have challenged each other 14 times in Serie B and only on one occasion has the match ended in a draw (0-0 in April 2016): four Calabrian and nine Ligurian victories complete the balance sheet.

Crotone opening the score in the 7th minute. Junior Messias, launched by Molina, jumps into Terzi speed and kicks from the edge of the area to find the lower corner to the right of Spezia goalkeeper Ivan Provedel.

Spezia equalizing for the 1-1 in the 18th minute. Zanellato’s mistake in his own penalty area. The Crotone midfielder mistakenly serves Diego Farias who kicks first to equalize. Crotone goalkeeper Alex Cordaz, helpless, sees the ball slip into the low corner to his right.

Crotone taking the lead again in the 49th minute with Reca powerfully sending the ball at the far post for the 2-1.

Motivation is high for Crotone increasing the score for the 3-1 in the 56th minute. Eduardo Henrique, the former Sporting Lisbon midfielder, left alone, easily scores the third goal!!
