Cittadella vs Perugia
Italian Serie B
Date: Monday, 11th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato, Cittadella.
Cittadella welcome Perugia in the last game of Serie B Round 3 at Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato. The away side will be aiming for the third victory of the season while Citadella’s primary goal is to remain undefeated.
The home side has started off a season with the 3-2 victory over Ascoli, followed by the defeat by Frosinone.
Cittadella’s play style is similar to Perugia’s – they prefer open matches with a lot of goals, which is unfamiliar in the Italian second division.
Perugia have been impressive in the first two games when it comes to scoring goals. Adding nine goals in the two rounds is stunning in the terms of Serie B.
The guests are deservedly in the third place – they obliterated Entella 1-5 on the road followed by the 4-2 triumph over Pescara.
Cittadella vs Perugia: Head-to-head
The two sides collided on four occasions so far. Perugia have won the first three duels, while Cittadella only managed to snatch a point from the 1-1 draw.
Cittadella vs Perugia: Prediction
Perugia will continue with their attractive and offensive approach as long as it yields the points. Cittadella might struggle to respond to it due to their defensive woes. Facing the side that bagged nine goals in two matches is quite scary, especially in Serie B, so the hosts will most likely sit back and defend from the start while relying on counter attacks.
