Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Cittadella and Palermo square off against each other at Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato in what is expected to be a close encounter. La Citta are a real force to be reckoned with at home, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive win in front of home fans. As boss Edoardo Gorini should have a full squad to choose from, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side.
The Sicilians, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-2 win over Cremonese. Palermo were involved in some high-scoring games in December and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals as well. Anyhow, the in-form hosts are closer to picking up all three points from the match than the visitors. To make things even worse for the away team, midfielder Ivan Marconi is banned for the match.
