Napoli vs Cagliari
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 5 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples).
Cagliari enjoyed a superb run of form in the last couple of months. They climbed up to 11th place in the league standings and are miles away from the relegation scrap as a consequence.
I Rossoblu were especially dominant in front of their fans at Sardegna Arena where they won five of past six league matches. It has been a completely different story on travels as Rolando Maran’s men struggled to bring points from away fixtures throughout the entire season practically.
I Rossoblu have a disastrous record of 2 wins, 4 draws and 11 defeats in 17 away matches in this term of Serie A. They thus reasonably come into this 35th round fixture against Napoli as heavy underdogs.
Nonetheless, we don’t advise you any high-stake bets for this affair as it will by no means affect the final standings as neither of two sides have anywhere to go in four remaining rounds.
Napoli vs Cagliari: Head-to-head
Napoli go into this on the back of six consecutive wins over I Rossoblu.
Partinopei kept their net untouched in five of past six meetings with Cagliari.
Napoli bagged at least three goals in seven of last eight head to head affairs with I Rossoblu.
Napoli vs Cagliari: Prediction
The lack of motivation caused some unexpected slip-ups for Napoli in recent months. They thus fell 2-1 at Empoli, drew 1-1 at home to Genoa and lost 1-2 at home to Atalanta in between wins over bottom two sides Chievo and Frosinone.
Carlo Ancelotti has no reasons to rest his star players here as Partinopei were earlier eliminated from both Coppa Italia and Europa League.
Given they scored three or more goals in seven of past eight meetings with Cagliari, we have reasons to expect a goal fest when these two likes come across each other in the last game of the Matchday No 35 at Stadio San Paolo.
