Lecce vs Cagliari: Prediction

The Salentini were no match for an in-form Lazio side as they fell to a 2-4 defeat at Stadio Olimpico in the previous round. Favio Liverani’s team are on a seven-game winless streak and they’ve picked up four points during that span.

Sixteenth-placed Lecce have claimed only two points from five games at home and they will try to snap their bad run and get their first victory at Via Del Mare, but it won’t be easy, not at all – high-flying Sardinians are coming to town.

Farias, Tabanelli and Falco are set to miss out; Lapadula is doubtful.

Caglari’s fantastic run doesn’t seem to have an end. They’re on a ten-game unbeaten run at the moment. A year ago, they had 14pts to their name after 12 rounds, now they’re sitting at 4th position, levelled with Lazio and two points ahead of Atalanta and Roma.

‘Il Sardi’ completely demolished Fiorentina 5-2 in their latest league outing – Radja Nainggolan scored a goal and provided three assists.

Cragno, Ceppitelli, Birsa, Pavoletti are on the treatment table for the visiting side; Pellegrini and Nandez are questionable.

Lecce, 0-2-3 at home, have an average of 0.80 goals scored per game, whilst conceding 1.80 per bout. They’ve played out an entertaining 2-2 draw vs Sassuolo in their most recent fixture at this venue.

Cagliari are yet to lose on their travels – they’ve picked up 11pts from five games on the road, scoring an average of 1.60 goals per match, whilst shipping at the rate of 0.60.

The Sardinians are in great form and I’m willing to back them, albeit in a safer, draw-no-bet market, and also take both teams to score – Yes.

Both sides have found the back of the net in Lecce’s last six Serie A games and Cagliari have scored in each of their last 11 league matches.

Cagliari to win 2-1? Sounds plausible to me.
