SPAL vs Cagliari
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday 10 November 2018
Kick-Off: 17:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).
Just one point and one place separate SPAL and Cagliari ahead of their crunch clash at the Stadio Paolo Mazza on Saturday evening. Both teams are desperate for a win, but who will get it?
SPAL come into this game having won just one of their last five games. At one point, they were actually in the top four, with some momentum behind them after surviving the drop last term. However, things have since gone awry and they have started sliding back down the table.
No one really expected them to be able to keep pace with the likes of Juventus, Inter, and Napoli for long and now they sit in 15th place. Whilst they are not in danger of relegation just yet, they will want to try and improve – quickly as they are not too far out from that region, either.
As for Cagliari, they sit in 14th spot, on 13 points, and in an odd way, they appear a lot closer towards the congested middle of the pack than the relegation zone. A positive result here could really help their standing, and the Sardinians will want to avoid a second straight loss and get back on track after a 3-1 defeat to Juventus. Prior that, they had gone three games sans a loss, beating both relegation candidates Chievo and Bologna and picking up an impressive road draw against Fiorentina.
SPAL vs Cagliari: Head-to-head statistics
- SPAL have lost six of their last seven Serie A games
- SPAL have lost their last three home games

- Cagliari have won their last 3 matches against SPAL in all competitions
SPAL vs Cagliari: Prediction
With SPAL struggling so badly recently, and Cagliari picking up an impressive 1-1 draw against a Fiorentina side who pride themselves on their strong home form, the Rossoblu should be able to at least get a point here. SPAL have lost all but one of their last seven games, and are in freefall at the moment after a bright start to the season, unfortunately.
