Cagliari vs. Roma Predictions and Preview
Cagliari go into the final three matches of the Serie A season just two points and two places above the drop zone, with a tricky run of fixtures to come.
With just one victory in seven, Diego Lopez’s side end their campaign with games against Roma, Fiorentina and Atalanta and will be nervously looking over their shoulder.
Roma have won only nine of their last 19 leagues matches but have won three in a row as they look to close in on a Champions League spot.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s side have a put a four-point gap between themselves and fifth-placed Inter as they look to seal a top four finish.
However, Roma have been eliminated from the Champions League after a 7-6 semi-final aggregate loss to Liverpool and may suffer from both physical and psychological fatigue.
The visitors are favourites to win this game at odds of 4/9, with a home win available at 8/1 and the draw priced at 7/2.
Under 2.5 goals is available at 5/4 while fewer than 1.5 goals is priced at 7/2.
A ‘double chance’ on Cagliari securing either a point or a win is available at 2/1, while such odds for Roma are 1/10.
If you fancy the visitors to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 23/10.
One to watch for Cagliari: Experienced forward Leonardo Pavoletti is the danger-man for the hosts – he already has 10 league goals for the campaign and four in his last nine outings. He is priced at 33/10 to score anytime in this game.
One to watch for Roma: Edin Dzeko is Roma’s top scorer this campaign with 24 goals in all competitions including 10 in his last 15. He is available at 4/6 to score at any point in this game.
Long shot: Cagliari have only four times their past seven games with just one goal conceded in their last two home games, while Roma have only let in two goals in their most recent four league games. A scoreless draw in this match is priced at 33/2.
