Cagliari vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
The 17th placed Cagliari takes on the 15th placed Bologna in this exciting fixture. The current position for Cagliari is kind of unfortunate as they have had to take on some tough teams so far. And it should be said they performed admirably. A little careful in defence and they might have had pulled off some upsets.
Bologna comes into this game after beating Udinese but their away form is not top notch. Both teams have scoring problems to deal with. Both the teams are joint-second-worst in goals scored in Serie A so far. Four goals in seven games. Only Frosinone have a more glaring problem at hand.
Bologna have no away goals at all this season. This fixture at the Stadio Sant’Elia will be a low-scoring one. Last season both the home and return games were played to 0-0 and 1-1 draws. Cagliari is unbeaten at home this season and Bologna will have that streak to overcome, but the job just might turn out to be hard to complete.
Cagliari will have their hopes pinned on Leonardo Pavoletti while the visitors have Federico Santander to contend with.
Cagliari vs Bologna Head-to-head
- Cagliari have only lost one of their last 10 home games.
- Bologna have just three points in last 13 away games.
- The last three games at the Stadio Sant’Elia have ended with under 2.5 goals, and so have four of last five games.

Cagliari vs Bologna Prediction
Both teams are notorious for taking part in low-scoring games. Cagliari is in a streak of six games with under 2.5 goals. Four of last five games between the two have ended with under 2.5 goals.
- Expect the game to be a closely contested, low-scoring one.
Cagliari really put up impressive performances against AC Milan and Internazionale. They have just lost one of last 10 home games. And three points from last 13 away games say a lot about Bologna’s away form. Cagliari will prove a tough nut to crack at home for Bologna.
- Cagliari will walk away with at least a point.
