Our prediction for this Serie B match:
A place in the Serie A will be at stake when Venezia and Cittadella face each other at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo on Thursday evening. Venezia won the first leg thanks to Francesco Di Mariano’s goal, with the team moving one step closer to securing the promotion. I Lagunari are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the return leg, and we are positive that they are going to defend their slim lead.
La Citta did well to beat Monza in the playoffs semis, but they failed to impress in the 1-0 defeat to Venezia. Seeing that Roberto Venturato’s troops are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on Venezia, who impressed in the double-header against Lecce. When the two teams met at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo earlier this season I Lagunari defeated la Citta thanks to Francesco Forte’s goal.
