Sampdoria vs Cagliari
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 29 April 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genoa).
Sampdoria’s lousy away form came back to haunt them again as they were crushed 4-0 by Lazio. It was hardly surprising as they have been a team of two parts all season and are largely supported by their stronger home form. Can they use that to their advantage as they take on struggling Cagliari?
The Sardinians are only four points away from the bottom three, and come into this game having lost their last three away games. That includes even losing to Hellas Verona, who sit in 19th spot, and after this they also have to take on Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Overall they have lost ten of their last 17 away games and have struggled to score whilst shipping goals left and right in their travels, so things really don’t look good for them ahead of this contest.
In fact, Cagliari have lost all but one of their last eight games against teams in the top half of the table. Sampdoria, meanwhile have a very strong home record, with 11 wins out of their last 17 at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. They have already beaten every team who sit in the bottom five on home turf and have won three out of their last four home games against Cagliari.

Sampdoria vs Cagliari: Prediction
Sampdoria’s standing in the table is built upon their strong home form, and having lost badly to Lazio on the road, they surely aren’t going to waste a great chance here to pick up a much needed three points. Furthermore, Cagliari have been quite bad on the road and are expected to struggle yet again here.
