In Italy, the eight games of the fourth round are completed before then intervene in January in the round of 16, the top eight of the previous Serie A season in the competition. One of these eight duels is the match on Tuesday evening between Fiorentina and Cittadella!
Thus, the second division from Cittadella must compete on Tuesday evening in Tuscany. Although the ambitious viola so far completed a season to forget, the team of head coach Vincenzo Montella is considered a big favorite.
Fiorentina – Statistics & Current Form
The short intermediate high after the horror spring has long been forgotten. After the Fast relegation last year, the ambitions this season were international business. Demand and reality, however, divide miles apart and the Tuscan side is again in the bottom half of the table.
Vincenzo Montella, who worked for Viola between 2012 and 2015, has a catastrophic record in his second term. Fiorentina has played 22 competitive games since his return in April and only four games have been won. Currently there is an underground point cut of 0.82 points per game.
Between matchday three and eight, the Viola remained without defeat, since four of the six Serie A games were lost. Last weekend, home side Lecce lost 1-0 to their third defeats en suite.
In addition to the bankruptcy also had the injury-related failure of Altstar Franck Ribery be accepted. The 36-year-old injured after a hard entry at the ankle. Meanwhile, some media report even from the season-off for the former Bayern player.
According to the latest results, the viola urgently needs a sense of achievement. Accordingly, the appearance is important in the cup. Another defeat would result in an extremely unpleasant pre-Christmas season. However, given the recent performances, we do not see any value between the Fiorentina and Cittadella in predicting on the home side. The risk is significantly greater than the earnings opportunities.
In addition to Ribery also captain German Pezzella and winger Federico Chiesa will fail due to injuries. Thus a bear strong trio is missing. In addition, Montella is still a little spin the rotary machine.

Cittadella – Statistics & Current Form
Due to the turbulence around the US Palermo AS Cittadella moved in the past season as a table screen in the play-offs. The team managed by head coach Roberto Venturato almost the greatest success of the club’s history.
After wins against Spezia Calcio and the witches of Benevento Calcio, the team stood in the promotion final against Brescia Calcio. After the 2-0 home win, the dream of Serie A seemed to be palpable, but in the return game Cittadella gambled the lead actually and with a 0-3 defeat the dream burst.
After the disappointing end of the season, the current season did not begin as desired. Cittadella had only three points on the credit side after three matchdays, but since then, the shape curve is clearly upwards and after 14 games now, the dream of Serie A is a reality again. Cittadella ranks second. However, the deficit on championship leader Benevento Calcio is already a proud nine points.
Cittadella is currently leading the dense pursuit field. There are only six points between second and first relegation places (rank 16). Series B is extremely balanced. The great strength of Cittadella in recent weeks was the defensive. In the last eleven league games goalkeeper Alberto Paleari had to accept only six goals.

As an underdog, the second division will certainly want to exploit the existing defensive strength and act accordingly destructive. Between the Fiorentina and Cittadella could be a tip on a maximum of two hits accordingly also offer.

➱ Paleari – Benedetti, Adorni, Perticone, Ghiringhelli – Branca, Iori, Vita – D’Urso – Diaw, de Marchi
