Cagliari vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A
Date: Monday, 4 February 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
Atalanta are flying high at the moment. They joined the battle for positions which lead to European competitions next season thanks to a fabulous attacking form in recent weeks.
La Dea scored three or more goals on four separate occasions in last five matches in all competitions. The streak started with a demolishing 2-6 win over Sassuolo away at MAPEI Stadium. They then eased past Cagliari 0-2 in Coppa Italia last 16 round and demolished Frosinone 0-5 on the road.
Last weekend saw Gianpiero Gasperini’s men come back from three goals behind to save a point against Roma at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. The good form reached the summit on Wednesday evening when Atalanta ended Juventus’ dominance in Coppa Italia. They did it in some fashion, claiming a 3-0 victory against Cristiano Ronaldo & company to advance into cup semis.
La Dea will have a fantastic opportunity to keep the amazing spell of form going on Monday evening when they are set to drop the curtain on Matchday No 22 against out-of-form Cagliari away at Sardegna Arena.
Cagliari vs Atalanta: Head-to-head
Atalanta lead the head to head tie by a single win, but they did not have much luck in the history of away fixtures against I Rossoblu.
Cagliari won 10, drew 3 and lost only 3 of 16 home outings against La Dea.
Atalanta, however, broke the negative tradition three weeks ago when they saw off Cagliari 0-2 in R16 of Coppa Italia.
Cagliari vs Atalanta: Prediction
The hosts will enter the game in a completely opposite mood. They lost three and drew one of past four fixtures across competitions. Rolando Maran has reasons to be worried ahead of the visit of free-scoring Atalanta as his men showed a clear lack of meticulousness at the back in recent weeks.
I Rossoblu shipped at least two goals in each of last four matches and they will come into this off the back of a tough 3-0 defeat to the likes of Sassuolo in the previous round. The away win is a must-take pick at 1.66, while we also believe Atalanta should have no troubles scoring two or more goals on the evening.
