Cittadella arrive at Stadio Giovanni Zini on Sunday for the Serie B fixture with home team Cremonese.
All Cremonese v Cittadella match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below (including the best match odds).
Cremonese won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 1-0 Serie B losing effort in their last game against Monza.
In that game, Cremonese managed 54% possession and 16 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. At the other end, Monza had 8 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Christian Gytkjær (65') was the scorer for Monza.
Their more recent scorelines shine a light on the fact that things are going according to plan in the Cremonese rearguard. Cremonese have kept it tight, resulting in the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past six games standing at 3. That trend won’t necessarily be continued here, of course.
Their prior results show that Cremonese:
- have not emerged victorious against Cittadella in their last 4 league games.
- are undefeated in their previous 6 home league matches.
Cittadella will go into this encounter after a 4-2 Serie B win with the downing of Crotone in their most recent game.
In that match, Cittadella managed 41% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 11 of them on target. For Cittadella, the scorers were Orji Okwonkwo (19'), Enrico Baldini (62', 66') and Davide Adorni (74'). Crotone got 13 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Ionuţ Nedelcearu (29') and Samuele Mulattieri (68') scored for Crotone.
The stats tell the story, and Cittadella have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. At the back, Cittadella have been far from perfect.

Team News: Cremonese
The Cremonese boss Fabio Pecchia will be grateful to have no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Cittadella
From a largely available squad, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Cittadella gaffer Edoardo Gorini to be concerned with. Luigi Cuppone (Ulnar fracture) won’t be playing here.
In our opinion, Cittadella might need a bit of good fortune to put one past this Cremonese side who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re therefore seeing a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 win for Cremonese at the conclusion of the game.
Should be a close one.
