Frosinone narrowly missed out on automatic promotion despite ending up on same points as second placed Parma. This is exactly the same as last season as they were level with Verona, eventually ending the campaign with a defeat to Carpi in the semifinals. Moreno Longo will be keen on a different fortune this time. Interestingly, Cittadella was the team Carpi beaten in the quarterfinal last year.

Cittadella vs Frosinone Head-to-head

Frosinone won both league meetings of the 2017/18 season by the same 2-1 full-time score line.

Moreover, Frosinone are unbeaten in their last 12 meetings with Cittadella in the Serie B; 6 wins and 6 draws.

Their last 8 meetings in the second tier saw both teams scoring.

The most common ft score line is 1-1 that occurred in 5 of their last 8 meetings.

Cittadella also lost their last two home games against Frosinone; and drew and lost 3 each of the last 6.

Cittadella vs Frosinone Predictions

Both teams finished the regular season on a high note, Cittadella are 9 games unbeaten and Frosinone are without a defeat in four. So, there is little to separate on the basis of form.

However, the head-to-head clearly indicates that Frosinone are slight favorites here. This is backed up by their sterile away form this season, earning points in 15 of their 21 outings so far.

We have also seen that Cittadella have serious problems in defense, letting a team like Bari to score twice at their home turf. Therefore, we can back the away side to remain unbeaten here.

Cittadella vs Frosinone Betting Tips

Double Chance – draw or away win @ 1.53 odd is the most likely full-time outcome of this Italian Serie B play-off match.

I consider ‘Both Teams to Score’ priced at 2.00 odd as a value bet, we have seen the same happening in each of their last 8 duels.
