Roma vs Cagliari
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Roma.
Roma’s progress towards the top of the table was stopped once again. La Lupa was defeated last weekend quite convincingly in Bergamo last weekend, losing to Atalanta 1-4 FT. Now they will try to bounce back in the last Serie A match in 2020 on Wednesday night versus Cagliari.
Their opponents have been underperforming as well, sitting in 13th place with 14 points. Squad from Sardegna is winless for five domestic games in a row, so 1.28 odds offered on home win doesn’t really surprise anyone. Anything but a victory for Fonseca’s boys would be considered as disappointment.

Roma vs Cagliari Prediction
AS Roma had high spirits ahead of match versus Atalanta in Bergamo. Their confidence sky-rocketed after demolishing Bologna 5-1 and Torino 3-1. Edin Dzeko scored an early goal at Gewiss which was the result of the first half. Everything fallen apart in the last 45 minutes as La Lupa conceded four goals within 25 minutes.
They are now 4th on the table with 24 points, and it will be hard to catch up with AC Milan unless there is some big winning streak in upcoming months.
Cagliari are masters of draws lately. Four out of their last five matches ended without winner, despite the fact they haven’t faced any top tier team. The only loss happened versus Inter Milan at home 1-3.
This team has been consistent when it comes to scoring (bagged 19 goals), but their defenders are in poor shape (conceded 24). We expect Cagliari to go down at Olimpico but also fire at least one bullet.
