La Dea will need a good result in order to secure a Europa League spot, as they could move into the top six by the time the final matchday concludes this weekend. Cagliari, meanwhile are in danger of relegation. They come into this game in 16th spot and will need all three points in hand to make sure they don’t end up in Serie B by the time this round ends this weekend. They did end up winning the reverse fixture earlier this season 2-1, so Atalanta will also be desperate for revenge.

Atalanta come into this game having drawn AC Milan 1-1 which sees them in seventh spot. They’re only one behind the Rossoneri, who failed to win the Coppa Italia and right now will have to settle for the Europa League. Fiorentina are also desperate to force their way into that mix and Milan could drop points as they face the Viola on Sunday as well.

La Dea are unbeaten in their last seven and so are in a good spot, especially against the worse sides in the league. They have lost just one of their trips against the bottom four teams and have scored against all of them as well. Cagliari have lost ten of their home games and all but one of the top eight sides have won against Cagliari here, so Atalanta have a great shot. Nonetheless, Cagliari will be desperate to at least secure a point to inch away from the drop zone and ensure they can stay afloat for another campaign.

Cagliari vs Atalanta: Head-to-head (h2h)

Atalanta are undefeated in 11 of their last 12 away matches

Atalanta have lost just one of their last 12 league games on the road (W7 D4), this defeat coming against Juventus in March

Cagliari have won only one of their last six home league games (D2 L3), failing to find the net in four matches in this time

Cagliari vs Atalanta: Prediction

Atalanta will have rued the fact they couldn’t pick up all three points against AC Milan but they have a great chance here. Cagliari have failed to beat most of the top eight sides – all but one – and with the Rossoneri facing a tough test against Fiorentina, La Dea have a good chance to pick up a win here. That being said, Cagliari did shock Fiorentina 1-0 so Atalanta will have to be careful nonetheless.
