Predictions for Serie B Qual: Monza vs Cittadella
- Title : Predictions for Serie B Qual: Monza vs Cittadella
Monza will be having the huge pressure to reduce the goals aggregate as they host citadella after first leg defeat to the visitors
Monza will come out all guns blazing in an attempt to overturn a 3-0 deficit. They can beat Cittadella at home, but can they win by enough goals to save their season?
Then it was time for the return meeting in the qualifiers. The first match ended surprisingly with a big victory for Cittadella with the whole 3-0! All goals were scored by striker Enrico Baldini, who made life worse for the Monza players. But the ball is round and bigger miracles have happened around the football world. If we analyze the home team, which is investing heavily in the past year, Monza are newcomers in Serie B and they have already during their first year been close to reaching a direct place in Serie A.
The home team may not succeed in reaching Serie A this year, but maybe next season. Monza currently has experienced players such as Kevin-Prince Boateng and Mario Balotelli, both former Milan players. I'm not sure if Monza can turn around the 0-3 deficit, but a victory, with experienced players, should be fixed at home in the return.
Cittadella makes a strong finish in the Serie B league where they win 4 of 6 last league rounds and it saves a qualifier for the visitors. The away team ended up in 6th place in the league with 57 points. That is 7 points less than Monza, who took 3rd place in the league. The guests of course have more confidence today after the first match, but I do not think that Cittadella will make two perfect matches against Monza. Away games are not Cittadella's strongest side this season as they have 6 wins, 5 crosses and 8 losses in the league game.
The clubs also met in the league game twice this season. Monza won away with 2-1 and 0-0 ended the match in the U-Power stadium in Monza. I predict a home win for Monza
- Monza have won 4 of their last 6 matches
- Monza have won 3 of their last 5 home matches against Cittadella
- Cittadella have lost 3 of their last 5 away matches
Over 2,5 goals
