Virtus Entella vs Cittadella
Italy – Serie B
Date: Friday, 31 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale.
Citta have made sure of a playoff spot, but they still could make a shot to get into the semifinals directly. In order for that to happen, they have to finish at least in the fourth position, and they are two points below the fourth-placed Pordenone.
As such, they have to secure the three points this weekend, and have to hope that Pordenone lose against Cremonese.
Meanwhile, the Black Devils are placed 11th in the table, and have no chance of catching up to the European zone. Considering their struggles recently, and the impressive performances of their counterparts on the road, it’s expected that Cittadella will win this upcoming fixture.

Virtus Entella vs Cittadella: Prediction
The Black Devils were winless in six of the previous seven overall fixtures, and they have a total of just three wins at this venue from their last ten appearances. On the other hand, their opposite number had won five of their preceding eight road trips.
Going on, Citta have failed to score against this rival just once in the past six years, and not even once at this stadium in all of their visits. They had also won the latest such encounter at this venue, and that too while keeping a clean sheet.
Also note that the Devils have not scored any goal in their past two matches as well.
Taking into account these stats, expect Cittadella to record a win this Friday.
