Competition: Serie B play-off

Market: Venezia win

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Simply looking to finish off the job in midweek, Venezia will welcome Cittadella to the Stadio Pierluigi Penzo holding a marginal advantage on Thursday night.

Starting with the hosts, managing to pick up what could turn out to be a crucial advantage from their trip to Cittadella over the weekend, the mood in Venezia’s camp should be at a high. Landing that 1-0 win on Sunday, The Winged Lions now find themselves tipped as a landslide pick to be mixing it with Italy’s elite next season. Booking yet another play-off spot this year and desperate to go one step further, Head Coach Paolo Zanetti has seen his side largely impress over the past six weeks. Eventually coming past Chievo to book this week’s finale, Venezia are unbeaten in each of their last eight straight contests, a run that stems back to April 17th. Gaining a reputation for their continued performances at the Stadio Pierluigi Penzo, there is no doubt that Zanetti’s men will be looking to finish off the job in midweek.

As for the visitors, knowing they’re in a real uphill battle after they welcomed Venezia to the Stadio Pier Cesare Tombolato on Sunday, Cittadella appear to be a side having a wobble. Eventually managing to sneak their way past Monza, despite that 2-0 second-leg defeat on the road last week, Head Coach Roberto Venturato has seen his side suffer back-to-back defeats for the first time since returning from March’s international break. It should also be noted, including a pair of losses at Monza and Ascoli this month, Cittadella have recorded just a single Serie B victory on their travels in any of their last eight attempts, a run that stems back to February 13th. Suffering that 1-0 loss when they hosted Thursday’s opponent over the weekend, we’re backing what should be another tough test for the Veneto-based outfit in midweek.
