Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Palermo play host to Cittadella at their Stadio Renzo Barbera in the Serie B round 13 on Sunday afternoon. The Sicilians defeated Brescia 1-0 at the weekend, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run and a triumph over La Citta could see them climb to automatic promotion berth. Even though all Ceccaroni, Di Francesco, and Vasic remain in the recovery room, home win should be considered as Palermo footballers have regained a much-needed confidence.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been struggling on the travels this term and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Palermo’s party in Sicilia. Alessio Rizza remains in the recovery room, while all Andrea Tessiore, Enrico Baldini, and Edoardo Sottini are major doubts and the trio will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Last time out the two sides played out a boring goalless draw at “Renzo Barbera”.
