ITALY ........... SERIE B


It is very hard to see too many goals in this encounter. Hosts are in the relegation playoff zone, just three points above the drop zone and have managed a league low seven goals at home all season. Visitors are seven points from safety and only Trevisio have scored fewer away goals, than their total of nine.

I suspect that Avellino might have a go, after the break, given their position, but it is difficult to see either being too adventurous before half time and both lack much offensive threat in any case. The away side are 1-6-4 on the road in the opening 45 minutes, so are level at the break in almost 55% of all games, Cittadella are 1-10-0 at home in the first half, so draw an amazing 91%. We can take the halftime stalemate at around evens + and that looks really good value, given the stats and the goal shy nature of the two teams. Reverse meeting ended 0-0.

6 points half time draw 1.95 + ......... some 2.02 at present on the exchanges.

Good Luck.
