Cagliari vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
Roma will hope to end a dismal streak of three consecutive games without a win across competitions to an end on Saturday evening when they travel to Sardegna Arena to take on Cagliari in the Matchday No 15 tie. The Romans are having an underwhelming campaign in this term of Serie A. They only hold the 7th place in the league ladder after 14 rounds and are already as many as 20 points shy of table-toppers and defending champions Juventus at the very top.
Can the visitors rebound and finally pick up a three-pointer here? They will likely have to do it without talisman Edin Dzeko who skipped the last couple of fixtures through injury. Giallorossi failed it hard to create in the final third without the Bosnian striker on the pitch lately. They failed to score a goal in two consecutive games (1-0 loss to Udinese and 0-2 defeat to real Madrid). Nonetheless, Eusebio Di Francesco’s men somehow managed to bag two goals and save a point last weekend when they played Inter Milan in the derby of the round.
Cagliari vs Roma: Head-to-head
Roma dominated this match-up in the most recent history.
They won six and drew one of past seven encounters against Rossoblu.
Each of last three H2H meetings ended in Roma’s 1-0 wins.
Cagliari vs Roma: Prediction
The visitors could face hard times breaking the deadlock on Saturday at Sardegna Arena. Cagliari only conceded four goals in six home matches so far in the season. They are yet to suffer a defeat in front of the home crowd this term even though they sit as low as 13th in the league table. Rolando Maran’s men shipped only one goal in past four league affairs at Sardegna Arena.
Knowing that none of past three head to head encounters saw two or more goals scored, the Under 2.5 goals FT clearly pops up as the best of betting options for this match. You can back it at the odds of 2.10.
