Cagliari vs Parma
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 16 February 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
Cagliari will be desperate to bring a dreadful three-loss streak to an end on Saturday afternoon when they host Parma in the second game of Matchday No 24.
Rolando Maran’s men struggled badly for goals in recent weeks. They failed to find a single in past three league matches. I Rossoblu actually only scored goals once in past six outings in all competitions. They easily fell 3-0 away at Milan last Sunday.
The hosts fell to 15th place as a consequence of such sequence of results. They are just three points adrift of the danger area. A slip up here would seriously halt their ambitions of playing the top flight football next season as well.
Nevertheless, bouncing back against the likes of Parma will be quite a big challenge as the visitors showed strength against top notch sides in past two rounds.
Cagliari vs Parma: Head-to-head
Parma lead the head to head tie by six wins ahead of teams’ 35th meeting.
The home court advantage played a massive role in the history of this match-up.
Cagliari thus won 8, drew 4 and lost 4 of 16 home outings against Crociati.
It is interesting to mention that both teams scored a goal in only one of past seven head to head matches.
Cagliari vs Parma: Prediction
Parma proved out to be a very tough nut to crack against top sides in the competition of late. They held runaway leaders Juventus to a 3-3 draw in the previous away fixture. They backed up such fine display with a strong showing at home against Inter, but were unlucky to concede a last-gasp goal and lose the game 0-1 at the end.
Knowing about Cagliari’s dreadful run of form in recent matches, we have to recognize the huge value in backing Crociati not to lose at the odds of 1.83 here. You can also choose the BTTS – NO option at 1.90 as only one of past seven head to head encounters saw goals scored at both ends.
Cagliari vs Parma: Bet Tips
Parma or Draw Double Chance @ 1.83 (5/6)
BTTS – NO @ 1.90 (9/10).
