AC Milan vs Cagliari
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio San Siro (Milano).
It’s been a roller-coaster campaign for Milan so far in the season, but Gennaro Gattuso looks to have finally found the winning formula coming into this weekend’s home tie with Cagliari.
Rossoneri go into it unbeaten in four straight games in all competitions. It’s a superb run if we know they played the likes of Napoli (twice) and Roma in last three matches in the process.
Milan signed talismanic Krzysztof Piatek from Genoa this winter. The Polish striker scored two goals in an impressive 2-0 victory over Napoli in Coppa Italia quarter-final. He was also on the scoreline seven days ago when Milan drew 1-1 to Roma in the derby of the Matchday at Olimpico. He will fancy his chances of keeping such an incredible form going here against I Rossoblu who allowed as many as 21 goals in 11 away fixtures in this term of Serie A.
Milan vs Cagliari: Head-to-head
Milan completely dominated this match-up over the course of history.
Rossoneri won 25, drew 11 and lost only 3 of 39 encounters with I Rossoblu.
Milan were particularly impressive in H2H games at San Siro where they won 16, drew 2 and lost just 1 of 19 fixtures against Cagliari.
Milan vs Cagliari: Prediction
On top of having the red-hot Piatek in their ranks, Milan significantly improved their defensive displays of late. The team shipped only two goals in last six matches in all competitions. It is an amazing record if we know they battled the likes of Sampdoria, Juventus, Napoli (twice) and Roma in the process.
Cagliari dropped down to 15th in the league ladder after a streak of four defeats and a draw in last five games in all competitions. They failed to find the back of the net in four of last five matches and we just can’t see them causing damage against an inspired and in-form opposition.
