Cagliari vs Sassuolo
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Sardegna Arena.
Neither Cagliari nor Sassuolo have been pulling up any trees going into their Gameweek 20 tie on Sunday afternoon at Sardegna Arena.
The hosts are in a much tougher position, though. They lost seven on the bounce across competitions. They dropped down to the danger zone as a consequence.
Eusebio Di Francesco is thus in huge troubles and he desperately needs to arrest this slump in form if he wants to keep his job.
Unlike their rivals, Sassuolo have collected enough points at the start of the season. They thus do not have to worry about the relegation zone despite losing three of the last four games in all competitions.
Neroverdi’s dismal streak began with an unexpected cup exit after a 0-2 loss to SPAL on the home ground. It was followed by a 1-1 draw to Parma and a 2-1 loss to Lazio in the previous round.
Cagliari vs Sassuolo Head-to-head
- The draw has been by far the most common of the outcomes in the history of this match-up.
- It occurred on eight occasions in fourteen matches. Teams have snatched three wins apiece in the process.
- As many as five of the last six head to head meetings ended in a draw, including this season’s tie played in September last year at MAPEI Stadium (1-1).
- Both teams scored in four of the last five head to head matches.
Cagliari vs Sassuolo Prediction
Neither of the two sides looked capable of keeping things tight at the back in the recent head to head outings.
Since both teams have generally been struggling for clean sheets of late, we can hardly go past backing goals at both ends. The odds of 1.50 are kind of putting us away, though.
Rossoblu conceded 18 goals in 9 league matches on the home patch this season, while Sassuolo have a 19-17 goal difference in 10 away games in this Serie A term.
The 1-1 draw looks like a decent correct score shout. We are against goals galore here because of the importance of the match.
Both managers will desperately want to end their negative threads of results and we can expect a somewhat more careful approach from them here.
