Cagliari vs Bologna (By: Saconex)
Italy Serie A
Cagliari (7) vs Bologna (10)
Cagliari are for sure one of the big positive surprises of Serie A so far. As it stands there is only 2 points up to Napoli (4) and the last CL spot, so the start for Cagliari is impressive for sure. Total record is 4-3-2 with 13-8 in goal difference. 5 straight matches ended under 2.5 goals total (2-3-0) and I think chances is big for this one to be tight as well, because they are probably facing a team that is mainly focusing on their defence here.
Bologna are placed 3 points behind tonights opponent with total record of 3-3-3 and 12-12 in goal difference. They are coming from winning 2-1 at home vs Sampdoria (20), for sure important taking in mind that they were without a win in 5 matches before that. I guess the guests are happy enough with a point tonight, and thats a factor for my bet here.
* 5 straight meetings ended under 2.5 goals total
Altough I was considering backing the hosts to win this, I think the best value is on expecting the match to be tight overall. Both teams are probably happy enough with 1 point. Also taking in mind the historical record between these two, backing this one to be a classic low scoring Serie A match without many goals looks realistic. Im not getting surprised if this ends 0-0 or a tight 1-0 victory for the hosts so I give it a shot.
