Saturday's Serie A predictions including Crotone vs. Inter Milan

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Serie A fixtures, including Crotone vs. Inter Milan.

In danger of sinking into the bottom half of the table after a terrible run, Hellas Verona welcome relegation-threatened Spezia to Stadio Bentegodi on Saturday.

While the hosts have now lost five of their last six following defeat to unstoppable Inter last time out, a streak of one point from a possible nine has seen the Aquilotti's drop fears renewed.

We say: Hellas Verona 1-1 Spezia

Either side has found finishing a problem of late - with both scoring just twice in their last three games - and the pair are sinking fast down the Serie A standings.

A close-fought encounter should be expected, then, as even though a point apiece does little to satisfy either manager, it would at least keep their teams in contention to reach their respective aims of a top-half finish and staying in the top flight.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Inter Milan could strike the decisive blow in their quest for the Scudetto on Saturday, as they visit Serie B-bound Crotone, seeking three points to inch them closer to glory.

While Inter would be confirmed as champions should they win and nearest rivals Atalanta fail to take maximum points on Sunday, their hosts may see their inevitable return to the second tier formalised at Stadio Ezio Scida.

We say: Crotone 1-3 Inter Milan

Inter have not always sought to dominate proceedings of late, as they have steadily accumulated enough points by any means necessary, but their far-superior midfield unit can take charge against lowly Crotone.

Though the Squali have hit the net with greater regularity than the champions-elect in recent weeks, they have not faced a teak-tough back line like the Nerazzurri's and will find themselves outgunned at the Scida on Saturday - sending them back down to Serie B.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

AC Milan vs. Benevento (Saturday, 7.45pm)

Having clung onto second place for several months, a disastrous dip in form sees AC Milan at risk of missing out on a return to Europe, as they prepare to meet relegation battlers Benevento on Saturday.

The fast-fading Rossoneri have now lost back-to-back games, while their visitors have accrued just two wins from 18 outings this calendar year.

We say: AC Milan 2-1 Benevento

As both sides are approaching desperation in their current plight at either end of the Serie A standings, this may not be a game for the purists, as the home side can overcome their San Siro troubles to pick up maximum points.

The much-anticipated return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic should galvanise a Milan team that looks back to full strength in terms of personnel - if not in confidence and fluidity - and take a step towards salvaging a fine season from the scrapheap.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
