Cagliari vs Lazio
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 11th March 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Cagliari Stadium (Cagliari).
Following a surprise 2-2 draw with Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev, Lazio will have to get back on track in Serie A as they take on Cagliari. They’ll be aiming to maintain their grip on a top four berth as they face the struggling Sardinians, but come into this game having lost narrowly 1-0 to Juventus.
It was a frustrating result for the Biancocelesti, who certainly were hoping to a scoreless draw. They had won two straight meetings with Juventus, the first in a Supercoppa Italiana match at the start of the season and the second was in Turin, but Paulo Dybala’s late, late goal ended any chances of salvaging a point. The defeat was following a hard fought result against AC Milan in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, which went to 120 minutes, then spot-kicks, and ultimately saw the Aquile end up losing on penalties.
Nonetheless, despite being out of the Coppa Italia, Lazio can still secure a Champions League berth thanks to their overall solid form in Serie A. Cagliari have been quite poor overall, with losses in eight of their last 13 home games and have lost all seven of their games against teams in the top five.
Simply put, this is a great chance to Lazio to get back on track.
Cagliari vs Lazio: Head-to-head
- Lazio have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches against Cagliari in all competitions.
- Lazio have won 6 of their last 7 matches against Cagliari in all competitions
- Cagliari have lost nine of their last 11 games against Lazio in Serie A (W1, D1)
Cagliari vs Lazio: Prediction
Although Lazio will be disappointed with the results from their last two games, they have a great record against Cagliari and should be able to bounce back here.
The Biancocelesti have seen over 2.5 goals in the majority of their away games (18 of their last 19) and scored at least two goals in six of their last seven games against Cagliari across all competitions. So a higher scoring contest is certainly on the cards.
Ciro Immobile could also add a goal or more to his tally as he has netted twice in each of their last two wins against the Sardinian outfit.
