Our prediction for this Serie B match:
After restarting the season with a goalless draw with Trapani, Frosinone will be looking to start a new winning run when they host Cittadella at Stadio Benito Stirpe. The Canarini are only two points behind automatic promotion places, meaning that Friday’s football match is of big importance for the home side. Even though defender Marco Capuano is sidelined through suspension, we believe that home win should be considered.
Cittadella, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over rock-bottom Livorno, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the Canarini. Both De Marchi (injury) and Branca (suspension) are out of contention for the visitors, and given Frosinone’s home record in the Serie B, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. A man to keep an eye in the home team will be experienced attacker Federico Dionisi, who has netted nine goals so far this term.

Highlighted Team (Frosinone):
Back in 1912 Frosinone were founded as Unione Sportiva Frusinate and it has to be noted that the colors of the team were originally red and blue. They were later changed to the current yellow and blue and the Canarini have been wearing those kits ever since. Frosinone made their first ever appearance in the Serie A in the 2015/2016 season, but they failed to secure the promotion.
The Canarini finished the season in 19th place in the standings, eight points behind Udinese, who eventually avoided relegation to Serie B. However, two years later Frosinone returned to the Italian top flight as they defeated Palermo 3-2 on aggregate in the play-offs final.
The club play their home games at Stadio Benito Stirpe, the stadium that was opened in 2017. The venue can hold 16,227 spectators and it is owned by the Municipality of Frosinone. The construction cost €20 million.
