Odds: 4/5 odds taken 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December

Roma will be aiming to keep up their charge for a top-four finish this season in the Italian top flight with three points in this one.

It will be a recovery result if they get it as well after having lost on the weekend away at Atalanta.

Cagliari have failed to get a win on the board in any of their last six league games so will be expected to struggle.

Roma Preview – Can Roma take the three home points on offer?

Roma finished last weekend’s action in fourth place in the table, despite a heavy 4-1 away loss at Atalanta.

So they will be looking to recover from that and their home form suggests that they can.

Roma are undefeated with a W4 D2 record at home in this league campaign.

The goals have been flowing very well from them on home turf too.

Roma have averaged 2.5 goals per home fixture.

Roma are the 2/7 odds-on favourites for three points out of this fixture* (odds taken 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December).

It has been five goals only that they have conceded in their six home games, banking a clean sheet in half of those.

So the stats do look to be in their favour and Roma are W3 D1 in their last four home games against Cagliari.

In that sequence, Roma have conceded just one goal, a 1-1 draw between the two sides in Rome last season.

But they are looking strong enough at the moment to go better than that and record a home win.

For football betting, we need to look around for some better odds than the match outright, however.

Our betting prediction:
Roma To Win To Nil

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December)


Roma have scored 67% of their home goals in the first half of games this season.

So that can lead us to a Roma/Roma HT/FT betting option at 4/5 which looks reasonable* (odds taken 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December).

Inter are the only team in the league with a better home record this season than that of Roma’s.

Only Inter and AC Milan have scored more top-flight goals in this campaign than Roma have done.

So we do see this all playing out as a home win and given their consistent scoring, Roma to win by a 2 goal margin has appeal also at 10/3* (odds taken 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December).


Cagliari Preview – Tough road game for Calgiari

It is six matches in Serie A now for Calgiari without a win, but they have drawn four of their last five.

So they have been hard to knock over. Away from home, they are W1 D3 L3 this season.

Calgiara are winless in four on the road, drawing their last two at Hellas Verona and Parma.

They have managed to come up with just the one goal in their last three away games as well.

The one victory they Cagliari have produced on their travels happened at Torino who are currently a bottom-three side.

The problem for them is that they have been conceding a lot of goals.

Calgiaria have conceded an average of 2 goals per away game this season.

The bulk of those (64%) have gone against them in the first half of matches, again lending a bit of credence to Roma getting a first-half lead.

Cagliari have only scored the opening goal in 2 of their 7 away games this season.

Cagliari have failed to score in five of their last six league visits to Roma now.

A Roma to win to nil betting option is at 6/4 with that in mind* (odds recorded 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December).

Adding a bit more weight to that is the fact that Cagliari have netted once in their last three league fixtures only.

They have played four games this season against teams who are currently in the top half of the table and have taken a D2 L2 record from that.

We expect them to come up short in midweek.


Roma vs Cagliari Betting Advice

The defence of Cagliari is not likely to hold up in this one. Not with them having conceded an average of 2 goals per road game.

Roma are above that average in terms of average goals scored at home, so we can get to the home win easily enough.

We would jump on the trend of Roma to win to nil at 6/4 for some extended odds* (odds taken 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December).


Key Facts – Roma vs Cagliari Betting Tip

  • Roma are unbeaten at home in the league this season
  • Roma average 2.5 goals per home game in this campaign
  • Cagliari have scored 1 goal only in their last six trips to Roma


The other reasonable option is the Roma/Roma HT/FT for the game at 4/5* (odds recorded 2027 GMT Tuesday, 22nd December).

That’s because Roma have been scoring consistently well in the first shelf of matches.

On the flip side, Cagliari have given up most of their away goals in the first 45 minutes of fixtures.
