Cagliari vs Genoa
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 26 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
Cagliari are going to host Genoa in the 18th round of Italian Serie A in the clash which is going to take place on Wednesday afternoon.
Home side is sneaking around the middle of the table, however they need to be very careful not to slip down to the danger zone. Cagliari haven’t celebrated a win in the last seven rounds, but they have been involved in a lot of draw matches. The hosts tied two defeats and they want to break that poor run. Although Rolando Maran’s side has lost just once at Sardegna Arena, home fans were able to celebrate the victory of their team just twice at that venue.
After a good start of the season, Genoa entered a very poor streak which dragged them down to the verge of slipping into the relegation zone. They are just four points ahead of the red line and the visitors failed to win eleven times in a row in all competitions. Although Krzysztof Piatek has been magnificent in front of the oppositions’ goal this season with 12 goals scored so far, his teammates from the back are allowing too many goals. Genoa are putting very poor away performances as they’ve lost four times in a row at away grounds.
Cagliari vs Genoa: Head-to-head
Genoa have been more successful in their head to head clashes lately as they managed to beat their rivals four times in the last five encounters. The crowd was able to enjoy very efficient clashes as the last four matches went over 2.5 margin and none of the sides managed to keep the clean sheet in that period.
Cagliari vs Genoa: Prediction
This is going to be a very tight match as both sides want to break their winless streaks. Cagliari have the advantage of playing at home pitch, but Genoa knows how to neutralize their opponents. It wouldn’t be surprising if this one ends with a draw.
These two sides have been providing very interesting clashes lately and this one should be one of a kind. In the last 12 Genoa’s matches, one of the sides managed to keep their net intact just once and in this one we are also expecting to see goals in both nets.
