Spezia prepare for this match following on from a 1-1 Serie B stalemate versus Ternana.

In that game, Spezia had 60% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The scorer for Spezia was Giuseppe Di Serio (95'). Ternana got 13 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. Filippo Distefano (89') was the scorer for Ternana.

It has been seldom in recent games where Spezia have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Spezia have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 10 goals on the way. Having said that, it remains to be seen if the trend will be maintained here in this match or not.

A look at their previous results shows us that Spezia:

  • haven't beaten Cittadella in their previous 2 league matches.
  • are without a home win in the past 3 matches in the league.

Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Parma in Serie B action, Cittadella and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

In that game, Cittadella managed 58% possession and 22 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Cittadella was Stefano Negro (45'). At the other end, Parma had 16 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Adriá Bernabé (8') and Hernani (38') scored for Parma.

Edoardo Gorini's Cittadella have converted 5 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The total of goals that have been scored against them during those same clashes comes to 9.

A look at their previous results shows us that Cittadella:

  • have not emerged victorious against Spezia when they've played them away from home in the last 6 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
  • are without an away win for the past 4 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Checking on their most recent head to head meetings stretching back to 09/02/2019 tells us that Spezia have won 3 of these and Cittadella 2, with the tally of drawn matches standing at 1.

An aggregate of 16 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 9 of them for Spezia and 7 netted by Granata. That’s an average goals per game of 2.67.

On that occasion, Cittadella managed 49% possession and 24 attempts on goal with 7 on target. Goals were scored by Giuseppe Carriero (15'), Filippo Pittarello (75', 81') and Tommy Maistrello (86').

The referee was Davide Ghersini.

ℹ️ Team News: Spezia

Arkadiusz Reca (Adductor injury) and Przemyslaw Wisniewski (Cruciate ligament injury) will not be able to play for Spezia boss Luca D'Angelo.

It’s our opinion that Spezia should use a 3-4-3 formation for this game, utilising Jeroen Zoet, Nicolò Bertola, Lukas Mühl, Dimitrios Nikolaou, Ales Matějů, Ádám Nagy, Salvatore Esposito, Filip Jagiełło, Daniele Verde, Diego Falcinelli and Francesco Cassata.

📰 Team News: Cittadella

Due to a fully healthy group to pick from, the Cittadella manager Edoardo Gorini does not have any fitness concerns to report coming into this game. Stefano Negro is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

We’re of the thinking that Granata seem likely to utilise a 4-3-1-2 lineup, going with Elhan Kastrati, Alessandro Salvi, Matteo Angeli, Domenico Frare, Lorenzo Carissoni, Alessio Vita, Simone Branca, Giuseppe Carriero, Claudio Cassano, Luca Pandolfi and Filippo Pittarello.

💡 Prediction

In this match, Cittadella are capable enough to find the back of the net against this Spezia outfit, although it may not quite be enough to avoid a loss.

We think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 win for Spezia when the full-time whistle blows. Could easily see this go either way.
