Cagliari Prediction

Cagliari sit in 14th place on the Serie A league ladder but hold a useful six point cushion over third from bottom club Bologna ahead of their Friday night encounter with Fiorentina, with recent results producing mixed returns for the hosts.

The hosts have won just two of their last nine matches overall in Serie A, which were both at home with victories against Parma and Inter Milan, but they’ve also lost six matches within this nine-match sequence, so there’s no guarantees that Cagliari will pick up all three points on Friday night.

Cagliari have been fairly solid at home though in recent times as they’ve lost just once in their last five matches on home soil within an overall record of 5-6-2 16/12, but the high occurrence of the draw when Cagliari play at home also needs to be factored in here.

In addition, recent history is against Cagliari as the hosts have lost their last three encounters at home to Fiorentina, losing 1-0, 5-3 and 4-0 respectively as the visitors have held the upper hand in recent meetings.

 

Key-Facts – Cagliari v Fiorentina

  • Cagliari have lost just 1 of their last 5 home matches in Serie A
  • Fiorentina have won the last 3 away meetings at Cagliari
  • Fiorentina have lost just 1 of their last 10 away matches in Serie A

 

Fiorentina Prediction

Onto Fiorentina then, and the visitors occupy a safe mid-table position in 10th place in Serie A but all three points in this clash would see the visitors swap places with 9th placed Sampdoria, and with just one defeat from their last nine matches overall, Fiorentina look well placed to get something out of this encounter at the Sardegna Arena.

However, a note of caution; six of Fiorentina’s last nine matches have ended up in draws with just two wins during this sequence, these being a 4-3 win at Chievo and a 4-1 romp away at SPAL which will be encouraging for Fiorentina as these were both away from home.

An away record of 3-7-4 18/18 doesn’t look too impressive at first glance but this includes just one defeat from their last 10 matches on their travels, which was a 3-1 loss at 7th placed Atalanta.

After losing three of their first four away matches within an eight match run without an away win in Serie A, Fiorentina have certainly picked up their game on the road and they’ve become a hard nut to crack on their travels.

Betting Tips Verdict

Cagliari have shown reasonable form at home but Fiorentina’s solid results away from home and previous dominance over Cagliari make them worth backing with the draw no bet option here.
