Bari vs Cittadella
Italy Serie B Promotion Play-offs
Date: Saturday, 26th May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale San Nicola (Bari).
Bari have been in great shape in front of the home crowd and they’ve secured their 6th spot on Serie B table mainly for such performances here, last beating Carpi 2-0 and hoping to build on the success as they host Cittadella for their Promotion Play-off Quarterfinals on Saturday afternoon.
Galletti have had more troubles on the road but they’ve connected a three-game winning streak at Stadio Comunale San Nicola since late April as they beat Virtus Entella, Perugia, and Carpi and built on a nine-game unbeaten streak here. Build on such performances will be a crucial task but the visitors boast a fine form of their own and promise a great challenge in Bari as well.
Citta have thus earned four wins and four draws in their last eight outings, making the top 8 cut and sitting eight points clear of Foggia. They’ve bagged six goals on their last three trips and we’ll surely see them very motivated to build on such displays at Stadio Comunale San Nicola – but causing an upset will be a tough task.
Bari vs Cittadella Head-to-head
Bari have been more successful this term as they bagged a 4-2 home win over the rivals and snatched a point in a goalless draw at Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato.
This was their only first win in four head-to-head matchups, though.
Cittadella have snatched just one win in eight trips to this ground, which will be more worrying.
Bari vs Cittadella Prediction
We will now back Bari to build on a solid campaign and great records at this ground, making their way to the next round as we back them to win at 2.05. They’ve been scoring many goals recently and we do believe they have what it takes to outclass the in-form visitors as well.
Nonetheless, we do believe they’ll have to outgun Cittadella to do so and we do believe we’ll see both sides very motivated on the day. With that in mind, we’ll also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.30 – which has attracted many value seekers who believe we’re in for an exciting occasion in Bari.
