Cittadella is a strong team and has had a stable performance in Serie B, evidenced by their entry into the promotion playoff group in 5 of the last 6 seasons. Unfortunately, they lacked a bit of luck and courage to secure a spot in the top tier. After failing to make it to the top group last season, it seems that Cittadella is willing to give up this season. After 31 rounds, they have gained 36 points (8 wins, 12 draws, 11 losses) and stand at 15th place, very close to the danger zone.
On the other hand, Parma has been moving up and down between the top two tiers and is striving to earn a spot in Serie A after failing last season. Currently, Buffon's team is ranked 8th, just enough to play in the playoffs.
In terms of this match, both sides have motivation to win, with the home team needing to avoid relegation and the away team needing to earn promotion. In terms of form, Cittadella has a disadvantage, having just experienced 5 consecutive winless matches (3 draws, 2 losses). Meanwhile, Parma has won 3 of their last 6 matches. We should place our trust in the away team.
Prediction: Parma Total goals prediction for Cittadella vs Parma Cittadella has one of the worst attacking lines in the league, having only scored 28 goals after 31 rounds, an average of less than 1 goal per game.

The total number of goals conceded by this team since the beginning of the season is 34, ranking 7th in the league. It is likely that Parma will make this match a tight one, with few goals.
