SPAL are third from the bottom and are serious danger of dropping back down to Serie B. It’s been a rough Serie A campaign for them, who are making their first top flight appearance in nearly 50 years. Meanwhile, Cagliari managed to avoid the drop despite their awful defense thanks to the even worse performances of Pescara, Empoli, and Palermo, and they could at least count on their home showings.

However, this time, their home form has been not so great and they can’t even count on that this time around. They are playing at a temp ground and it’s cost them dearly. Overall, Cagliari have won just three of their 11 home fixtures and it’s again defensive displays that are costing them valuable points.

SPAL, meanwhile, since their impressive 0-0 draw with Lazio have been unable to keep a clean sheet on the road. However, they have managed to score in 12 of their last 13 games and seven of their last eight away games, so they could manage to trouble Cagliari’s poor defense here.

SPAL did manage to stop Inter last week and earn a point, but they couldn’t celebrate that one too much as other bottom ranked sides like Hellas Verona and Crotone also picked up points. However, that could give them some confidence heading into this fixture.

Cagliari vs SPAL: Head-to-head statistics

  • SPAL have failed to win 10 of their last 11 away matches.
  • Cagliari have lost their last 3 home matches.
  • Cagliari have won only once in their last nine Serie A fixtures (D3 L5).
  • That’s after claiming victory in three of the past four beforehand (L1).
  • Cagliari are unbeaten at home against SPAL in the top-flight (W2 D1).

Cagliari vs SPAL: Prediction

SPAL and Cagliari both have some bad problems at the back, meaning that both teams should be able to score here. Backing both teams to score is a pretty safe bet here and their efforts could led to everyone cancelling each other out.
