Pescara vs Cittadella Prediction
Pescara failed to keep up their winning momentum last week and were subsequently taken down by Entella on the road with a 2-0 scorecard. Nevertheless, the hosts have stumbled just twice in their past seven games in the second division.
With a total of thirty-two points to their name, Pescara are currently sitting tenth on the ladder, one point behind their foes for the week.
On the other hand, Cittadella have not been able to ensure consistency in their respective campaign. Their most recent clash at home saw them lose 2-1 to Empoli. While on the road, they pulled off a thumping 3-0 win over Trapani.
To be frank, the visitors have been coping a lot better in their outings than at home this season. In fact, the guests are sporting the second-best away statistics on the table, as of now.
Furthermore, Pescara have picked up the win just once in their past six games here. To make matters worse, the hosts have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous four meetings with this opponent at home.
As such, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Cittadella this week. Be that as it may, the hosts have shared the spoils in half of their last four h2h clashes here. Considering that Cittadella have also been held a draw three times on the road this term, it will be safer to back a double chance.
Additionally, Cittadella have been at their defensive best on the road so far. Admirably, they have kept a clean sheet in half of their past ten outings.
Meanwhile, the hosts have conceded just seven goals in their last eight games here. Taking into account that seven of their previous eight h2h encounters at this stadium have also been low scoring affairs, expect goals to be scarce in this one as well.
