Cagliari vs Salernitana: prediction for the Serie A game
Cagliari haven't won for five games in a row, but will the Rossoblu be able to break this streak on Friday, November 26? What to expect from this game? Our answers are in the prediction below.
Cagliari are having a poor season. Leonardo Semplici was sacked after the first three rounds, but Walter Mazzarri hasn't been able to improve the team's performance. In the first game under the new manager, Cagliari came close to defeating Lazio away, but they only got a 2:2 draw.
Currently the Rossoblu are second-to-last in the Serie A standings, with only 7 points from 13 games, which is the same as the last Salernitana and four points behind the safety of the 17th line. In the last round, Cagliari got a hard-fought draw with Sassuolo (2:2). The hosts are on a winless streak of five games, which they will be looking to interrupt today.
Salernitana were considered one of the main outsiders from the start of the season. In the first rounds, the team looked very disappointing, and the club management made a decision to replace Fabrizio Castori with Stefano Colantuono as head coach. The Garnets, however, were beaten 2:4 by Empoli at home in the first game under Colantuono.
Salernitana played one high-quality match back in October, when they beat Venezia with a score of 2:1. In the last round, Salernitana lost 0:2 to Sampdoria, thus suffering their third defeat in a row and dropped to the bottom of the table.
Cagliari recorded the last 2 victories with this score.
Salernitana conceded in the first half in their last 2 games.
Cagliari conceded in the first half in the last 2 games.
Cagliari gave a quality performance in the last round and got an important draw with a tough opponent. Today the Rossoblu will strive to collect three points. Salernitana struggle to stay competitive in Serie A and have practically no chance of defeating the hosts.
Our prediction - Cagliari to win
Cagliari have quite a powerful team and should be doing much better than 19th place in the table. In the last match of the Rossoblu, we witnessed some improvement, and we believe the Islanders will be able to confidently defeat the weakest team in Serie A.
Second bet - Cagliari to win by 2 goals
