The Serie B fixture at Stadio Benito Stirpe on Saturday sees home side Frosinone prepare for the visit of Cittadella.
All Frosinone v Cittadella game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below (plus the best game odds).
Frosinone will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 1-0 Serie B loss in their previous game against Salernitana.
In that match, Frosinone managed 58% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 1 on target. For their opponents, Salernitana had 9 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Emanuele Cicerelli (55') scored for Salernitana.
An interesting aspect of more recent Frosinone games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their prior 6 clashes leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on BTTS would have lost.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Frosinone:
- have not beaten Cittadella in their previous 3 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 10 league games. No joy for the home fans.
In their previous fixture, Cittadella drew 1-1 in the Serie B match with Reggina.
In that game, Cittadella managed 45% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Cittadella was Giacomo Beretta (46'). On the other side, Reggina got 14 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Niccolò Bianchi (59') scored for Reggina.
The forward players for Cittadella have suffered from a shortage of goals over their previous six clashes, contributing the poor return of only 4. In those fixtures, Granata have also seen the collective goal aggregate of their opponents equal 4. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, of course.
Coming into this contest, Cittadella have not won away from home in their last 4 league games.
Head to head
Looking at their past head to head clashes dating back to 06/06/2018 shows us that Frosinone have won 1 of these and Cittadella 2, with the tally of draws being 3.
An aggregate of 12 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 5 for Canarini and 7 created by Granata. That’s an average goals per game of 2.
The previous league contest between the two was Serie B match day 14 on 22/12/2020 when it ended Cittadella 1-0 Frosinone.
That day, Cittadella had 54% possession and 20 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. Their only player to score was Roberto Ogunseye (45').
Frosinone got 8 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.
The referee was Valerio Marini.
Team News: Frosinone
Riccardo Baroni (Knee Surgery) and Luigi Vitale (Biceps femoris muscle injury) won’t be playing for Frosinone gaffer Fabio Grosso.
Team News: Cittadella
Cittadella boss Roberto Venturato has some current player fitness concerns. Tommaso Cassandro (Unknown Injury) and Enrico Baldini (Muscle Fatigue) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Davide Adorni is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Cittadella may well find it hard to put one past this Frosinone lineup who we think might well score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore anticipating a highly competitive game with a 1-0 winning score for Frosinone when the full-time whistle blows.
