Genoa vs Cagliari
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).
Genoa is hanging above the relegation line by a thread. They are 17th in the table and have a buffer of a single point. The situation becomes graver when it’s noted that Empoli, the team just below them, and who’s in the relegation zone, won their last two games. Genoa will have to be on their toes in the next two match-days to secure safety.
Despite their mid-table position, Cagliari has been one of the worst teams in the competition on the road. All through their campaign, the team managed just two wins away from home, and scored just a single away goal more than the dead-last and already relegated Chievo.
Genoa vs Cagliari Head-to-head (h2h)
- Five of the last six matches saw home wins.
- 21 of the last 27 wins were recorded by the teams at home.
- Nine of the last eleven wins at this venue went to the hosts.
- 11 of the last 14 encounters at this venue had the home team scoring two or more goals.
Genoa vs Cagliari Prediction
In the last eight months, only twice has Cagliari managed to win an away tie, and both were against Chievo, who is without a doubt the worst team in Serie A. Cagliari could record just two league wins on the road this whole season. They were winless in 15 of their last 17 road matches and had a six-game losing run away from home.
Genoa, meanwhile, was unbeaten in 19 of their last 24 home ties and has performed very well against this opponent at this venue in the past. They recorded nine of the last eleven h2h wins at this stadium, and scored two or more goals in 11 of the last 14 appearances against Genoa, at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
Finally, home teams have always had the upper hand whenever these two sides locked horns. Five of the last six games saw the hosts taking the win, while 21 of the last 27 wins also went to the home teams. Expect Genoa to deliver as their future in the top division is in doubt.
