Cagliari vs Udinese
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
Cagliari wrapped themselves up into the relegation scrap after losing three on the bounce in Serie A. Rossoblu now sit just two points above the line and they will be desperate to arrest the current slump on Saturday afternoon against Udinese. The visitors are on an even worse run having lost eight consecutive league outings ahead of this trip onto the south of the country.
However, Udinese are still in a somewhat better position being four points above in the league ladder. The latest of the failures came six days ago when Massimo Oddo’s men could not hold on to an early lead allowing Lazio to complete a comeback and grab points from Dacia Arena. Away from home, Udine lost four on the bounce without scoring more than once along the way. The efficiency in the final third is generally Oddo’s biggest issue at the moment as Udinese bagged just three goals in last eight league affairs.
Cagliari have not been any better up front recently, netting just one in last thee league games. Nonetheless, Rossoblu are well aware of a huge opportunity to escape the relegation battle with three-pointer here and we doubt they’ll fail to take advantage of it on Saturday.

Rossoblu celebrate one of rare away wins in the campaign when they shocked Udinese 0-1 in November last year at Dacia Arena.
Cagliari vs Udinese: Prediction
We expect a huge battle between fellow strugglers. The bet you can’t make a mistake with would be Over 4.5 cards at the odds of 2.20 since we expect a huge battle all over the pitch. Five yellow cards is quite a common scenario in Serie A games and we have to take such high odds offered for this bet.
Alternatively, we will go with the Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.70 since both teams have been struggling badly for goals lately.
