Roma vs Cagliari
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma regained the much-needed confidence thanks to a pair of separate 1-0 wins over Sampdoria and Udinese. They backed up these successes with a generally fine display in a 1-1 draw to Inter Milan seven days ago away at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. La Lupa are now back in contention for the top-four finish. They are just one point short of Milan in fourth place.
Claudio Ranieri’s men will be looking to build on mentioned performances to see off id-table Cagliari on Saturday afternoon at Stadio Olimpico. I Rossoblu have all but secured survival in the elite class of Italian football as they sit 11 points above the red zone line with only five games left to play.
Cagliari thus practically have nothing but pride to play for until the end of the season. They generally played much better in front of the home crowd so far. Rolando Maran’s troops seem to be a completely different team on travels where they have a dreadful record of 2 wins, draws and 10 losses in 16 matches.
Roma vs Cagliari: Head-to-head
Roma rarely had problems with Cagliari in the history of their meetings at Stadio Olimpico.
La Lupa won 13, drew 4 and lost just 2 of 19 home clashes against I Rossoblu.
Roma won six and drew two of last eight encounters with Cagliari.
Roma vs Cagliari: Prediction
Cagliari grew in both form and confidence significantly in the last couple of months. They head into this on a high after winning two and drawing one of last three league outings. Nevertheless, they will be up against a much more motivated opposition here.
I Rossoblu also had very little success in most recent head to head affairs with Roma. They have a horrendous away record in this term of Serie A. This is why we’ll shoot for the home win to nil as the main betting prediction for this one.
