Cagliari Prediction – Can Cagliari record back-to-back wins?

After suffering back-to-back defeats to start their new Serie A campaign in disastrous fashion, Cagliari halted a potential further slide last weekend when they registered a much needed 3-1 win away at Parma, and they’ll now be heading into this Friday night’s encounter with Genoa looking for back-to-back wins.

Early defeats on home turf at their Sardegna Arena to Brescia 1-0 and a 2-1 loss to early Serie A league leaders, Inter Milan, threatened to make it an extremely uncomfortable start to the new campaign for the hosts and manager, Rolando Maran, but last week’s win over Parma should give them renewed confidence ahead of Friday night.

However, as Cagliari have lost their last 4 home matches on the trot, the win markets should be avoided at all costs, but there’s an interesting angle on the goals market. In particular, the both teams to score option as 5 of the last 6 meetings between Cagliari and Genoa have seen both teams score.

In addition, 7 of Cagliari’s last 10 home matches have also ended in the same result with both teams hitting the back of the net.

Genoa Prediction – Can Genoa bounce back?

Genoa took 4 points from their opening 2 matches of the new Italian Serie A campaign following a 3-3 draw away at Roma and a 2-1 home win against Fiorentina, but they were handed a 2-1 loss at home in last weekend’s defeat to Atalanta.

The visitors will therefore be desperate to bounce back with a result at Cagliari on Friday night, and Genoa are further incentivised by the knowledge that if they grab all three points in this clash then they’ll jump into an early top four spot in the Italian top flight.

However, Genoa also can’t be trusted in the win markets as the visitors have picked up just 2 away wins out of their last 17 matches overall in Serie A, so a top four spot may just have to go on hold for a while.

Genoa have also suffered a lean period away from home too in Serie A as they’ve won just 1 out of their last 17 matches on their travels, but 10 of these last 17 away matches have seen both teams score.
