Reason For Fiorentina vs Cittadella Betting Tips

  • Fiorentina enter the Coppa Italia fourth round, but can they repeat their run to the last four?
  • Cittadella chasing a top-flight place in Serie B.
  • Under 2.5 goals has landed in 86% of Cittadella’s away league games.
  • Fiorentina have failed to score in their last two – both against newly promoted teams.

Hope for the hosts

Fiorentina return to cup action on Tuesday with plenty of optimisim. They are hoping for another run at winning this competition after their semi-final exit earlier this year. However, the hosts are also looking towards Tuesday’s meeting with lower-tier opposition as they try to change a dreadful run of form. La Viola are in a slump, but is this their chance to change things?

Visitors on the up

While Fiorentina have high hopes here, this is a crucial moment for the away side. Cittadella have aims of making the top flight, following their play-off defeat to Hellas Verona last term. The visitors are looking for a first crack at the top flight, so meeting a midtable Serie A side like Fiorentina is the perfect test for them right now.

Cittadella have moved into the promotion mix again, sitting in second place and on their way to an automatic promotion place. Given that Citta are currently unbeaten in six matches in Serie B, we think they’ll be a tough nut to crack here. The visitors should come here looking to make things difficult, especially if they’ve caught any of Fiorentina’s last few games.

Goal-shy Viola

The hosts have lost back-to-back games 1-0 in Serie A. Those defeats came against Lecce and Hellas Verona, two sides who Cittadella met in Serie B last season. La Viola have struggled for goals of late, which is a major concern if Citta head here looking to frustrate Fiorentina and push to condemn them to another 1-0 loss.

The away side have got some previous on that front. They head into this clash having seen under 2.5 goals in 86% of their away trips in the league this term. None of their last six have seen over 2.5 goals, while only two of their last 12 have finished with three goals scored. Given Fiorentina have seen the majority of their home league games finish with under 2.5 goals, we expect them to go the same way here.

Under 2.5 goals is our pick for this clash, while we are backing Fiorentina to see off a side who have failed to beat their fellow top four sides in Serie B this term. The hosts have won four of their last five home clashes in this competition, so we are backing a 1-0 victory for the home side on Tuesday.
