Cittadella vs Bari Preview and Predictions

Cittadella vs Bari 1908
Italian Serie B Promotional Play-offs
Date: Sunday, 3rd June 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato, Cittadella.

Cittadella are aiming to improve the last term’s record when they were stopped in the quarterfinal of the promotional play-offs in Serie B. The head coach Roberto Venturato led the team towards the new top-eight finish in the regular season and Cittadella will once again have the home court advantage when they take on the seventh-placed Bari 1908 in a single-leg contest to determine the play-offs semi-finalists.

The hosts fell 1-2 to Carpi art hiss stage of the competition in the previous term and such experience will certainly be helpful for Venturato and his men here. They are generally on a strong sequence of results being undefeated in last eight games of the regular season. Such thread helped the team book the sixth-place finish at the end of the campaign after all.

Cittadella vs Bari Predictions

The visitors also enjoyed the fine spell of form in the finish of the season having lost just one of last ten Serie B fixtures. The problem for Fabio Grosso and his squad might lie in their somewhat slower form on travels given they’ll come into this winless in four subsequent games on the road in the competition. Moving forward, they won just one of last seven away outings and only two of eight H2H games with Cittadella on the road in spite of the dominant H2H record overall.

Venturato’s men bagged an impressive seven-goal tally (for league standards) in last three home ties in the league and they simply have to take advantage of the momentum to pick up the victory. You can have the home win at the 2.40 odds. Under 2.5 goals FT has to be the alternative betting option as we expect a tight affair with very few goal-scoring chances at both ends due to the huge importance of the game.
