Cagliari vs Torino
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 19 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Sardegna Arena, Cagliari.
Friday’s match between Cagliari and Torino has all the ingredients of a genuine relegation six-pointer at this stage. The two sides sit next to each other in the Serie A standings, right on the brink of the danger area.
Cagliari are in a somewhat tougher position being two points shy of their Friday counterparts. They are third from bottom after clinching just one point from the last nine league matches.
This is by far the worst form of any team in the division. I Rossoblu are winless in 15 consecutive games in all competitions.
The team led by Eusebio Di Francesco scored just one goal in the last six league fixtures. They now have the third-worst attacking record in the league with just 24 goals scored in 22 outings.
On the bright side, Eusebio Di Francesco can see improvements in his men’s defensive displays. I Rossoblu did not concede more than one goal in any of the last four league matches despite playing the likes of Lazio and Atalanta in the last two games in the process.
Cagliari vs Torino Head-to-head
- Torino lead the head to head tie by four wins coming into the 36th meeting with I Rossoblu.
- Cagliari have, however, won each of the last two meetings with Il Toro, scoring as many as seven goals along the way.
- I Rossoblu are unbeaten in the last five matches against Cagliari (three draws and two wins).
Cagliari vs Torino Prediction
Il Toro are also winless in the last eight outings in all competitions. Nevertheless, they played five subsequent draws in Serie A. Four of these five draws came with Davide Nicola at the helm.
Can the new manager pick up his maiden victory with Torino against such an out-of-form opposition? It is hard to say knowing that Il Toro won just 2 of 22 league matches so far in the season.
Torino are also winless in the last five clashes against Cagliari. They will travel to Sardegna Arena after a goalless draw to Genoa in the previous round.
Given the importance of the game and the fact that both sides failed to find the back of the net last weekend, we will go with the Under 2.5 goals FT as the main betting pick at the odds of 1.90 here.
