Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato will host Saturday’s football game between Cittadella and Sudtirol, the two mid-table sides. La Citta aim to build on back-to-back wins over Brescia and Palermo and a triumph over Sudtirol should see them climb to the playoffs berth. Simone Branca misses out through suspension, while fellow midfielders Andrea Tessiore and Edoardo Sottini are major doubts and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The visitors, meanwhile, failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Parma and Pisa and given Cittadella’s signs of improvement, home win should be considered. Kevin Vinetot limped off with injury in the last league match, with Giuseppe Cuomo likely to step up. As for the away team, all Nicholas Siega, Cristian Shiba, and Gabriel Lunetta are rated doubtful for the match. Talented forward Emanuele Pecorino should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the 2-1 loss to Pisa.
