Juventus vs Cagliari
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Torino.
Reigning Serie A champions Juventus are returning to domestic action this Saturday night at home venue.
Opponent on the other side of pitch will be Cagliari, in-form squad that has four victories in the last five appearances.
We are surely going to see an interesting match as the Old Lady is in desperate need of points.
Juve are currently 5th with 13 points, four less than the table leaders AC Milan.
Fans were not happy with a couple of performances in October, especially at home against Barcelona which puts Andrea Pirlo under a lot of pressure.
As expected, hosts are big favorites for the win at 1.33 odds.
Juventus vs Cagliari Head-to-head
Cagliari have caused a massive upset in the previous edition of Serie A by beating Juventus at Sardinia 2-0 FT. That game was played in late July this year.
Before that, Juve defeated this opponent seven times in a row. Many of those victories were with big goal difference.
All-time stats say that 26 out of 41 games so far ended in Old Lady’s favour. Juve lost only five times to Cagliari in history.
Juventus vs Cagliari Prediction
Huge mistake made by Paulo Dybala has allowed Lazio to score a late equalizer against Juventus in the last round, just before the international break.
That was the third draw in the last four matches for Pirlo’s squad.
Two previous ones against Crotone and Hellas Verona were even more surprising. The only time team shown a spark of form from previous season was in 4-1 win against Spezia.
That was the match where Cristiano Ronaldo recovered from illness and made his first post-recovery appearance.
Portuguese star scored two key goals. Did international break leave a mark on his fitness though?
A big majority of Cagliari’s games so far were very attractive to watch.
They were defeated in Bergamo 2-5 and in Bologna 2-3 for example, but there are also high-scoring affairs that ended as victories.
Squad from Sardinia defeated Torino 3-2, Crotone 4-2 and Sampdoria 2-0. We don’t think they will escape Torino with a draw or a win though.
