Cagliari vs Atalanta prediction
Italy Serie A
Cagliari (15) vs Atalanta (7)
Cagliari doesn’t really impress anyone this season, and they are probably happy for the fact that the bottom teams in Serie A is as weak as they are. Total record is 4-9-8 with 19-30 in goal difference. They are coming from losing 3-0 away vs Sassuolo (11) and only managed 2-2 at home vs Empoli (17) before that. The hosts are missing players like Sau, Klavan & Castro here. Also Barella suspended.
Atalanta are considered as favourites here, and I understand why. They have been very good lately and are coming from crushing Juventus 3-0 in the Cup. They have scored in 16 straight matches in all competitions (11-2-3) and their total record in the league is 9-5-7 with 47-30 in goal difference. In fact they are the highest scoring team in Serie A, so expect them to get goals scored tonight as well. No missings reported.
* Atalanta visited Cagliari in the Cup 2 weeks ago, and they won that match by 0-2
* Atalanta with average total goals per match of 3.67 (highest in the league)
I think Atalanta will find the net quite easily once again, and they should be able to win this match without big problems imo. Cagliari isn’t really strong, but will still go for 3 points here, taking in mind that the relegation zone is only 4 points behind them. Overall I expect this to be entertaining, and specially the attacking guests will get their chances for sure. Atalanta to win in a high scoring match sounds realistic to me. 1-3?
