Cagliari vs Atalanta
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Sardegna Arena, Cagliari.
Cagliari have not been pulling up any trees lately. They took just one point in the last eight league matches and also suffered the Coppa Italia elimination in the meantime.
Their cup exit was forced by Atalanta, the team I Rossoblu will be facing this Sunday in the 22nd round of Serie A at Sardegna Arena. This is certainly not a great time for Eusebio Di Francesco’s men to take on the free-scoring Atalanta.
I Rossoblu are desperate for points as they sit third from bottom in the ladder at the moment.
To make things worse for Cagliari, their top-half rivals are also in a big need of points here. They were dropped down to the seventh position after taking no more than one point in the last two league matches.
La Dea are still just three points short of Roma and Lazio in the fourth position. However, a slip-up against such an out-of-form opposition would significantly hurt the team’s ambitions of securing yet another top-four finish in Serie A.
Cagliari vs Atalanta Head-to-head
Atalanta lead the head to head tie by four wins thanks to the fact they have won each of the last three clashes against I Rossoblu.
La Dea bagged eight goals in the last two clashes against Cagliari, both played this season (5-2 in the league and 3-1 in the cup).
La Dea also won five of the last six clashes against Cagliari.
Cagliari vs Atalanta Prediction
The hosts have really been struggling for goals lately. They managed to find the back of the net just once in the last five league outings. It is certainly not the kind of form you want to have going head to head with Atalanta who have just made their way to the Coppa Italia final by beating Napoli 3-1 in the reverse semi-final fixture on Wednesday evening.
La Dea bagged three goals in each of the last two games (they drew 3-3 at home to Torino last weekend). They also won three on the bounce against I Rossoblu. We can’t imagine any other scenario but the comprehensive away win here.
