Cagliari vs Lazio
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 11 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
Lazio definitely gave up the battle for the Champions League football with a disappointing1-3 home defeat to direct rivals Atalanta on Sunday at Stadio Olimpico.
The Romans lost four, drew one and won two of past seven league matches. Such dreadful spell of form dropped them down to 8th place in the league ladder.
Biancocelesti are four points shy of Milan and Roma and as many as seven points behind fourth-placed Atalanta with just three matches remaining to be played.
Simone Inzaghi is thus likely counting his last days at Stadio Olimpico as we doubt the team will keep him as the head coach after such an underwhelming campaign.
The atmosphere in the dressing room is far from ideal and we can’t see Biancocelesti favourites on Saturday against Cagliari away at Sardegna Arena.
Cagliari vs Lazio: Head-to-head
We could be in for a true goal fest on Saturday afternoon in Cagliari looking at the most recent head to head record between these two likes.
Six of past seven H2H encounters saw goals scored at both ends as well as three or more goals.
Lazio were much more successful in the most recent head to head history as they won seven and drew two of past nine clashes against I Rossoblu.
Cagliari vs Lazio: Prediction
Overall, Cagliari enjoyed a fantastic run (for their standards) in the second half of the season. They escaped the relegation scrap with a run of five wins in last six league matches on the home patch.
Rolando Maran’s men became a formidable force at Sardegna Arena and they will by no means be a naïve opposition for Lazio here.
On top of this, Cagliari showed a decent performance in a narrow 2-1 defeat to Napoli six days ago away at Stadio San Paolo.
The hosts are thus well worth backing not to lose this tie against out-of-form Lazio at sky-high 1.85 odds.
