Date: Sunday, 22 April 2018
Kick-Off: 11:30 UK/ 12:30 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).

Cagliari were humiliated 4-0 by Inter Milan in their last fixture and they will be hoping to pick up a result on home turf as they welcome Bologna on Sunday. It was just another bad result for the Sardinians, who have struggled on the road all season.

They only have a four point lead over 18th-placed Crotone, meaning that any slip-ups could be costly. At this juncture, all they need are a v Meanwhile, Bologna are already secure in their top-flight status as they sit in 11th and are 10 points clear of the drop. However, they don’t have much of a chance of really breaking into the top half of the table as Torino boast nine point lead, and barring a surprise collapse from the Granata, Bologna will be firmly rooted into the bottom half of the table.

Could that complacency come back to haunt them? They come into this game having lost to Sampdoria. They have won only five of their last 16 away games and that includes six of their last seven on the road. That includes losses to SPAL and Crotone – two teams who are fighting relegation and they could just take another relaxed approach here as they have nothing much to play for.
