Vicenza fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being the 1-0 Serie B success against Pescara.
In that match, Vicenza had 55% possession and 17 shots on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Vicenza was Riccardo Meggiorini (59'). On the other side, Pescara got 4 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.
It has been seldom in recent games that Vicenza haven’t conceded. The reality is that Biancorossi have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 7 goals in the process. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, however.
Ahead of this clash, Vicenza have not won against Cittadella in their previous 2 matches in the league.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of SPAL in Serie B action, Cittadella and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Cittadella had 58% possession and 16 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. For their opponents, SPAL got 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Sergio Floccari (46') scored for SPAL.
Clashes featuring Cittadella have ended up being somewhat sterile ones latterly with the absence of attacking cohesion becoming the standard. During their past half dozen clashes, an uninspiring gross goal total of 6 has been yielded between both them and their opponents at an average goals per match of 1.
Their previous form shows that Cittadella:
- have not won against Vicenza when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 3 matches in the league.

Team News: Vicenza
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Vicenza boss Domenico Di Carlo to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Nicola Dalmonte (Knee Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Cittadella
Cittadella boss Roberto Venturato has some current player fitness concerns. Tommaso Cassandro (Unknown Injury), Enrico Baldini (Unknown Injury) and Domenico Frare (Unknown Injury) will miss out on this game.
When taking everything into account, Vicenza might have a difficult job to be putting a goal past this Cittadella team who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re going for a good tussle with a 0-1 victory for Cittadella at the end of the 90 minutes.
