Looking at the pre-match facts, Cittadella:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Venezia in their last 3 matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
Venezia come into this game following a 1-0 Serie B win as they beat Juve Stabia in their previous match.

Over the course of 6 of the past 6 games featuring Venezia, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and their opposition. The overall average number of goals per game in that period comes to a paltry 1.67, with the number of goals averaged by Arancioneroverdi standing at 1. That kind of trend isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, though.
Coming into this fixture, Venezia are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches away from home.

Team News: Cittadella
Cittadella boss Roberto Venturato will be thankful to have no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go.
Team News: Venezia
Owing to an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only the lone fitness issue for the Venezia boss Alessio Dionisi to be concerned about. Alexandre Pimenta (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
In our view, Venezia will do well to hit the back of the net against this Cittadella side who will likely end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’ve gone for a good tussle with a 1-0 advantage for Cittadella at the end of this one.
Let’s see how it plays out.
