Jose Mourinho’s Roma and Walter Mazzarri’s Cagliari meet at the Stadio Olimpico in Serie A action on Sunday.

Roma Preview – Comfortable home win for Giallorossi?

Jose Mourinho has had an up and down kind of time since taking over at Roma. The club from the Italian capital have blown hot and cold all season, picking up ten wins, suffering nine defeats and drawing two of 21 Serie A fixtures.

Roma have started 2022 in poor style, losing their opening two Serie A games. After a 3-1 loss to leaders Inter Milan, the Magic One were beaten 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller against Juventus last time out. Roma head into this one having taken just one point from their last three league matches.

Our betting prediction:
Roma to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1420 GMT, Saturday 15 January)

After the poor run, a home game against a struggling side could be just what Roma need right now. The hosts are the clear favourites at 4/11.

Cagliari Preview – Can the Islanders continue their revival with shock away win?

Cagliari, who finished 16th and survived by the skin of their teeth last year, are embroiled in another relegation battle right now. Walter Mazzarri’s side are in 18th position after collecting 16 points from 21 games.

Cagliari have shown signs of life at the start of 2022, picking up back-to-back wins over Sampdoria and Bologna. The victory over Sampdoria on 6th January was their first Serie A success since beating the same side 3-1 at home way back on 17th October.

Roma vs Cagliari Betting Advice

The reverse Serie A fixture between the two at Unipol Domus was an entertaining encounter back in October. Roma had to come form behind to secure a 2-1 win, with Ibanez and Lorenzo Pellegrini getting the goals.

Last season, the pair played out two five-goal thrillers. Roma won 3-2 at the Olimpico in December 2020, but Cagliari got revenge with a 3-2 victory of their own in Sardinia in April.


Key Facts – Roma vs Cagliari Betting Tip
