Cagliari vs Spezia
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Sardegna Arena, Cagliari.
Cagliari host Spezia for their Matchday 9 clash on Sunday in a good mood after turning a narrow contest their way against Verona (2-1), making their way to the next round of Coppa Italia with a last-gasp winner from Riccardo Sottil. They bounced to the winning ways again and will now want to build on their mid-table spot.
Isolani have been confident at this ground, though, and while they struggled for points on the road – this was their fourth home win in a row. They beat Crotone (4-2) and Sampdoria (2-0) in Serie A since late October and we do see them building on such records now, despite a tough challenge in the making.
We have seen Spezia show off as a tough side to beat on many occasions this term already and they have a three-match unbeaten streak to build on. They beat Benevento (0-3) and held Atalanta to a goalless draw in Serie A while beating Bologna (2-4) in a six-goal Coppa Italia thriller this week. We do see them making an impact in an attempt to jump the rivals to the mid-table rather than drop down into the danger zone.
Cagliari vs Spezia Head-to-head
The sides last met in Serie B back in 2016, when Spezia snatched a 1-2 win at this ground.
Cagliari bagged two wins over the rivals beforehand, earning a Coppa Italia win in 2012 and thrashing Spezia (0-3) in Serie B.
We’ve been used to exciting occasions, seeing three goals each on all of those occasions.
Cagliari vs Spezia Prediction
We will go for Cagliari to turn an exciting game their way and outgun Spezia to secure all three points on Sunday afternoon. They’ve got ground to build on and we do see them making it happen, having proven themselves at Sardegna Arena already and looking very motivated to build on their spot.
Still, they’re in for a great challenge and we feel they’ll have to score an extra goal in order to grab the points. With that in mind, we’re going for goals and backing a YES on Both teams to score, which comes at 1.57 and has seen many big hitters lumping already.
