Italy- Serie A.
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore (Reggio Emilia).
The hosts are winless in their previous 4 matches in the league. They are 12th in the table conceding 32 goals, 2 more than what they scored till now. From their previous 5 games in all competition, they are winless and lost 3 of them as well. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their previous 6 matches in both the Cup and league.
Majority of their home matches in the recent past have been drawn, with the latest in that spell being a loss against Atalanta. That 2-6 home defeat has been disappointing for a team who have been unbeaten in 6 matches on the trot. More than 2.5 goals were score din 3fo their latest home games and both sides scored in 4 matches too.
Sardinians are just below their opponents for Saturday. There are 5 points between them and much more differences in terms of scoring goals as well. Three of the last 5 matches were lost by the Red and Blues. They have conceded 2 or more goals in 4 of those 5 games and only 1 was a win.
Rolando Maran’s team are on a 2 game losing streak away from home. They have only a win in the last 5 outings in all competitions. Both teams scored in 4 of those games and over 2.5 goals were recorded in 3 matches as well.
Like most of the recent home games of Sassuolo, this one has all the features of a draw written all over it. Maybe the hosts can get 3 points accounting to the losing streak of the visitors.

- The Black and Greens have won 2 and lost one in the last 5 h2h matches against this opposition.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 games across all venues.
- Both teams have a win each in their last 5 meetings at this ground.

Sassuolo vs Cagliari: Prediction
The previous h2h matches do not give any team a significant advantage over the other. The hosts are unable to win games at home due to poor scoring form. On the other hand, the visitors have had only a win that was against the bottom side of Serie A. Thus I will go with Sassuolo to win this match and recommend to bet on the same with 2.10 odds.
Cagliari managed to score in 4 of their previous 5 matches on the road independent of the result. The hosts have also scored in 9 of their previous 10 matches in front of the home fans. So we can make a bet on both the teams scoring with 1.95 odds.
