Verona vs Cittadella
Italian Serie B
Date: Thursday, 27 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Derby match of the 18th round in Italian Serie B is going to take place on Thursday evening between Verona and Cittadella.
Home side wants to bounce back to the top flight and they are three points away from the top two and the direct promotion spot. They have been playing pretty well lately as Verona haven’t lost in the last four rounds.
Fabio Grosso’s side has been decent in front of the oppositions’ goal, while their defence is pretty tight. Although the hosts have been putting fine home performances and they’ve lost just once in front of their fans, they need to stop spilling points in draw matches.
The visitors have the same number of points as their rivals and they are also one of the most serious contenders for the promotion. They are enjoying an excellent streak of eleven straight matches in Serie B without tasting a defeat and that one pushed them up to the 4th spot.
Cittadella are playing very disciplined football and although they haven’t produced too many goals, Amadeo Benedetti and the lads allowed only 12 goals so far in the season. The visitors failed to just one defeat at away grounds, but they’ve played a lot of draw matches.
Verona vs Cittadella: Head-to-head
Both sides have been pretty successful in their head to head clashes and in the last seven encounters, both sides managed to celebrate three times each.
Away victories are rarely seen in their encounters and although they are not well-known as efficient sides, their clashes have usually been high scoring ones.
Verona vs Cittadella: Prediction
This is going to be very exciting clash and both sides have their chances of snatching a positive result from this one. Although the visitors are enjoying unbeatable streak, it should come to an end after this match as Verona should book a valuable victory.
Although the crowd was able to enjoy a lot of goals in their head to head clashes pretty often, Cittadella are very hard to crack and they are also not producing too many goals. Therefore, in this one we shouldn’t be able to see more than two goals.
