Cittadella vs Bari Match Analysis & Prediction
08/12/2022 5:00 pm
Cittadella will look to make it back-to-back victories on the bounce in Serie B when they welcome Bari to Stadio Pier Cesare in their Matchday 16 tie on Thursday evening.
Cittadella picked up a hard-fought 1-0 win win over Genoa at way last time out in Serie B. They showed resilience in that fixture as despite having only 32% of the ball and one attempt on goal, they managed to walk away with maximum points over Genoa who registered 14 attempts with five on a goal.
The victory saw them bounce back form a three-match winless run in the league and have now climbed to 13th place in the standings. They are just one point off the top-half of the table, while four points separate them and the playoff places.
Therefore, Edoardo Gorini’s side will be looking to make back-to-back victories in the league, as they hope to continue climbing closer to the coveted top six places. They face Bari who they haven’t lost to in their last three home fixtures and will look to draw confidence from that.
Bari picked up a 0-0 draw at home against Pisa last time out in Serie B, making it their fifth consecutive draw in the league while extending their winless run to eight games across all competition.
The run has seen them drop to third place in the league standings, six points now behind Reggina and level on points with Parma, Genoa and Brescia, who sit fourth, fifth and sixth respectively, while they are now just one point above eighth-placed Sudtirol.
Therefore, another draw on Thursday or setback could leave them as low as eighth, something they will be desperate to avoid. They have the edge in this fixture, although, they have failed to win at Pier Cesare in their last three visits and will need to take their up a notch.
