Cagliari Prediction

Cagliari now sit in 15th place on the Serie A league ladder and are just four points above the relegation zone as they prepare for the visit of high-flying Atalanta to their Sardegna Arena, having gained just one win from their last 11 league matches overall.

That rare win came in a 1-0 home win over Genoa but aside from that success, there’s been very little to cheer about for the Cagliari fans in recent times. True, they possess a stubborn looking home record that stands at 3-6-1 12/9, but again, they’ve managed just one win from their last five matches on home soil.

Cagliari started the season in positive fashion as they strung together a solid seven match run which included early season wins over Bologna and Chievo, but the victories have dried up in recent weeks which has left the hosts down in the lower reaches of the division.


Key-Facts – Cagliari v Atalanta

  • Cagliari have won just 1 of their last 11 matches overall
  • Atalanta are unbeaten in their last 4 matches overrall
  • Atalanta have won 3 of their last 4 away matches


Atalanta Prediction

Atalanta are unbeaten in their last four matches overall in the Italian top flight having secured wins against Sassuolo and Frosinone, both away from home and both in emphatic fashion as the visitors ran out comfortable 6-2 and 5-0 winners respectively.

The visitors also drew 2-2 and 3-3 with Juventus and Roma respectively at their Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia in Bergamo as the goals have been fairly flying in in recent times.

Atalanta’s ability to score goals could well be the key difference between these two sides on Monday night, and with the likes of midfielders Ilicic (6 goals) and Gomez (5 goals) along with forward and leading goalscorer, Zapata (15 goals) up front, the visitors stand a good chance of claiming the spoils here.

Atalanta’s away record stands at 5-2-4 29/20 with again goals featuring prominently on their travels too, and although they’ve lost four matches away from home already, they know how to win on the road as recent results indicate, having won three of their last four on their travels at Udinese, Sassuolo and Frosinone.

Betting Tips Verdict

Cagliari have been a stubborn unit to shift on home turf, but Atalanta can outscore them here.
