May 1st: Wednesday’s Serie B Double – 5/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

While Borussia Dortmund and PSG’s Champions League semi-final showdown might steal most of Wednesday’s headlines, we have a full fixture list from across Italy’s second-tier.

With a string of season-defining battles at both ends of the Serie B standings, there are also plenty of intriguing betting markets that are available throughout Wednesday.

So, for those of you looking to stick on a midweek flitter, we have found a pair of Serie B betting tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

14:00 Como vs Cittadella

Only continuing on what has been a public Serie B fairytale this season, Como are inching towards what would be an iconic top-flight return. With Wednesday’s guests firing on all cylinders and opening the midweek fixtures holding a one-point buffer in the automatic promotion places, the Blues will be more than aware that they face another must-win showdown here.

Really hitting the ground running since returning from March’s international break, caretaker boss Osian Roberts should find the mood in his camp at a red-hot high.

Including an action-packed 5-2 victory away at FeralpiSalo earlier in the month, the Lombardy-based outfit have collected 13 points from their previous five Serie B appearances and they have certainly gained a reputation for their clinical performances in the final third.

It should also be highlighted, along with a 3-1 romp against play-off contenders Pisa on March 16th, Roberts’ men have won all of their previous four consecutive showdowns at the Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia by an aggregate score of 9-3.

Although Cittadella might open Wednesday’s trip to Lombardy still battling it out in the chase to clinch a play-off ticket, the Maroons have continued to struggle with their constancy since opening the New Year.

Forced to settle for a single point in six of their previous seven Serie B appearances, Edoardo Gorini’s men have also registered just a single victory from any of their last 15 straight outings – a rut that stems all the way back to January 13th.

Likewise, along with recording just a sole win on their travels since the start of December, Cittadella should also be concerned by their most recent meeting against Wednesday’s hosts.

Hit with a routine 3-0 drumming when they welcomed Como to the Pier Cesare Tombolato for their reverse Serie B battle on September 24th, Gorini’s downbeat squad should be bracing themselves for another stern examination in midweek.

17:00 Bari vs Parma

While Parma might have suffered play-off heartbreak last season as they missed out on the chance to claim a lucrative top-flight return, Wednesday’s guests have embarked on a stunning Serie B romp this time around. Receiving a string of plaudits, the Crusaders will be more than aware that three points here could be enough to officially clinch a top-two finish.

Opening up the midweek fixtures holding a five-point buffer over the chasing pack, Fabio Pecchia’s men should be smelling a golden opportunity here.

Last seen putting in another thumping performance as they stormed their way to a routine 4-0 romp against Lecco, Parma have suffered just a single loss from any of their previous 13 appearances – a purple patch that stems all the way back to January 27th.

Likewise, not shipping in over 400 minutes of Serie B action, it should also be noted that the one-time Juventus coach has seen his squad suffer just a single second-tier defeat on their travels since returning from November’s international break.

While Bari might have sprung a real upset last season as they secured a bronze medal finish, Wednesday’s hosts have come crashing back down to earth this time around.

Putting in a nightmare display last weekend as they slumped to a 4-1 drumming at the hands of Cosenza, the Cockerels have collected just a trio of points from any of their previous 10 second-tier outings.

Sat in the drop zone and tipped as a leading relegation contender over the final few weeks, Pasquale Marino’s men have also continued to show some glaring issues at the back.

Hit with a 2-1 loss when they travelled to Parma for their reverse Serie B showdown on September 27th, Bari will be bracing themselves for another stern examination here.
