Cagliari vs Juventus
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 29 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena.
The Old Lady recorded their ninth straight league title the last Sunday, and surely could sigh a breath of relief now. Not even the mighty Bavarians could boast of this kind of an achievement in Europe’s top five leagues.
But Maurizio Sarri’s job does not end here. While he definitely will rest some of his key players, the gaffer has to bring confidence back to the team’s camp, as frankly some of their performances lately have not been that impressive.
With the Champions League against Lyon around the corner, it’s important that the Serie A title-winners have to start performing at the highest level again. And the struggling Islanders are the perfect opponents for them right now.
Not only are Walter Zenga’s men going through some torrid times, but they also have consistently failed against this opponent over the years in h2h clashes.
By the looks of things, expect a Juve win this Wednesday.
Cagliari vs Juventus: Head-to-head (h2h)

Cagliari vs Juventus: Prediction
The Islanders lost 0-1 at home the last match-day, against Udinese. In the meanwhile, Sarri’s men recorded a 2-0 victory at home against Sampdoria, which confirmed them as champions for the ninth straight time.
As things stand, the Old Lady are the favorites for the day. They have been the absolute best team in Italy for the last decade, and they have mercilessly dominated this opponent over the years in h2h encounters.
In fact, they are on a seven-match winning run in overall clashes, and are on an run of eight straight wins at this venue. They also had recorded 25 of the past 28 such wins. Moreover, they had also recorded a combined scoreline of 19-1 from the past seven such meetings.
On the other hand, Zenga’s men are on a winless run of eight overall games this season, and were winless at home in nine of their last ten appearances.
Taking into account these observations, expect a Juventus win this Wednesday.
