Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Monza will be aiming to overcome a three-goal deficit in the tie against Cittadella when the two teams face each other at Brianteo on Thursday evening. The Biancorossi have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at La Citta, but they will have a mountain to climb in the return leg. Since Mario Balotelli is widely expected to return to the starting XI, we predict that the hosts will find the net in the Brianteo clash.
Cittadella, on the other hand, impressed in the first leg, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Defender Gabriel Paletta is likely to miss the game through injury for the hosts, while Domenico Frare is unlikely to feature for the visitors after suffering an injury in the defeat at Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato.
