Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Spal will be aiming to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Pisa when they take on Cittadella on Matchday 30. March has been a mixed bag for Spal, who are eager to secure a top-eight finish, and, no doubt, the Gli Spallini need to start winning on a regular basis if they are to book their place in the playoffs. La Citta, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Salernitana.
Cittadella are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, and given Spal’s anything but good display in the midweek defeat, a close encounter is on the cards at Stadio Paolo Mazza. Paloschi remains on the sidelined with injury, while Strefezza is banned for the hosts. As for the visiting team, both Cisse and Vita are likely to miss the match through injuries.
