Torino vs Cagliari
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 April 2019
Kick-Off 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Torino played hot and cold throughout the entire season, but they can still be in contention for a place in European competitions next year with a winning thread in the next couple of weeks. Il Toro currently hold the 8th place in the league ladder and are only three points shy of fourth-placed Milan, meaning they can reach position which leads to Champions League theoretically.
Walter Mazzarri’s men are looking at a winnable affair on Sunday morning when they welcome bottom-half Cagliari in the first game of the day at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino. Il Toro enjoyed a fabulous home form lately with six wins in past seven clashes in their own backyard. They dispatched the likes of Inter, Atalanta and Sampdoria in the process and we have to see them favourites here against Cagliari.
Torino vs Cagliari: Head-to-head
Torino were the dominant force in the most recent head to head history of this match-up.
They won four and drew one of past five ties against I Rossoblu who are winless in eight subsequent clashes against Torino.
This term’s meeting at Sardegna Arena ended in a goalless draw back in late-November last year.
Torino vs Cagliari: Prediction
Cagliari escaped the relegation scrap thanks to a massive rise in form in March. They won three of past four league outings and are now as many as eight points above the red zone line. Nevertheless, Rolando Maran’s men generally play much better on the home patch which might be a big problem in terms of their potential success here in Turin.
I Rossoblu have a poor away record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 defeats in 15 league games on the road this season. They are up against a highly-motivated opposition which won six of last seven home outings and four of last five head to head meetings.
The home win is the only logical betting option, while braver tipsters can back Torino to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 2.87 odds.
