Still looking to secure an immediate return to Serie A, Benevento will travel to the Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while few would have expected Cittadella to come past Spezia in last weeks one-off match for a spot in the semi-finals, Gabriele Moncini’s brace secured another impressive performance for Roberto Venturato’s men. Heading into the playoffs with some real momentum, a huge part of their play-off push at the back end of the season has come down to their continued performances on home soil. Cittadella have lost just one match in front of their own supporters since the start of February, an eight-match run. Fans around the Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato will be most impressed by their sides’ performances in the final third. Tuesday’s hosts have now scored two or more goals in each of their last three outings.

As for the visitors, while Benevento may have gone about it the hard way with a dramatic 3-2 win away at Brescia last week, they’re still dreaming of an immediate return to Italy’s top-tier. Losing just a pair of matchups since the middle of March, a huge part of Cristian Bucchi’s play-off push has been his sides’ continued form in the final third. Led by leading goalscorer Massimo Coda who bagged 22 Serie B goals this campaign, no team remaining in the play-offs holds a better-attacking record than Benevento. Given both sides very eye-catching form in the final third, we’re backing a lively encounter on Tuesday night.
