In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (5 out of 12 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 8 of the last 12 for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 23 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Delfino Pescara 1936 arrives at this match after a 2-0 defeat, while traveling to Virtus, in a match for the 23rd round of the second Italian league. In a game in which the visitors had more possession of the ball and more offensive flow, but failed to give the best follow-up to the opportunities created, with the visitors reaching both goals through two penalties. With this result, the home team added the ninth defeat in the championship, where they occupy the tenth place with thirty-two points, one less than their opponent in this round.
Unsurprisingly, Nicola Legrottaglie's men are expected to play in 3-5-2, with Cristian Galano and Riccardo Maniero being the home team's offensive references. In turn, the center of the field should be formed by Luca Palmiero - who returns after a suspension game - Filippo Melegoni, Ledian Memushaj, Gabriele Zappa and Cristiano Del Grosso. For this match, the Pescara Calcio helmsman will have all the units available.

Confirmed Lineup: V. Fiorillo, C. Del Grosso, L. Crecco, D. Bettella, M. Drudi, G. Zappa, L. Memushaj, L. Palmiero, F. Melegoni, C. Galano, M. Bocic.
Coach: N. Legrottaglie.

Cittadella embark on this challenge after a 1-2 loss against Empoli FC. Meonardo Mancuso, with a head goal, opened the "hostilities" in favor of the visitors, but before half-time, after some confusion in the penalty area Davide Adorni established the tie at halftime. In the second half, after a good start like in the first half, Nedim Bajrami materialized the visitors' second goal and the last of the match. With this defeat, the visiting team has thirty-three points and the place of access to the play-offs is at risk.
For this game, away from home, coach Roberto Venturado should keep the team in the usual tactical design, the 4-3-3, with Francesco Stanco, Christian D'Urso and Davide Diaw. It should be noted that the last man mentioned is the best finisher of the group with ten goals scored. As far as the midfield is concerned, it should consist of Mário Gargiulo, Manuel Iori and Federico Proia. Apparently, the coach of "Citta" will be able to play with all the players for this match against Pescara.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Paleari, L. Ghiringhelli, R. Perticone, D. Frare, A. Rizzo, M. Iori, F. Proia, C. D'Urso, M. Rosafio, S. Branca, D. Diaw.
Coach: R. Venturato.

Betting suggestion:

We are facing two teams that are separated by a point and at Pescara's home, we expect a well-played game with both teams looking for the three points and thus achieving the goals set for this season, the promotion. It should be remembered that in the last five games between these two teams, which ended with a record 100% victorious for the visiting team, we had very open meetings with several goals on the scoreboard. Having said that and considering these factors, betting on “Over 2.5 goals” is a worthwhile option for this match.
