Cittadella vs Palermo Prediction

We have the best team in the competition as the visitors against Cittadella. The one thing that stands out when we analyze these teams’ past performances is that, despite their poor overall displays, Cittadella holds well at their home, and Palermo gives their best be it at home or on the road.

Both teams won’t be ready to risk much in this game and will be keen to avoid the loss. The game will lack pace in the first half as Cittadella as well as Palermo will be looking to pounce upon the mistakes of the other side rather than create chances of their own. In the second half, the game will become a little more lively.

Palermo holds a three-point lead at the top of the table and is an almost-sure candidate for promotion next season. The match will be evenly fought and most probably the first half will be goalless. Brave bettors can go for the Correct Score at Half Time option with 0-0 as their choice.

Either team will feel each other out in the first half and go in for the kill in the next 45 minutes. Expect a much calmer first half and a comparatively explosive one after halftime.
