Hellas Verona vs Cagliari
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-Off at 11.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi, Verona.
Saturday’s action in Italian Serie A is starting at Marc Antonio Bentegodi Stadium where one of the most pleasant surprise packages Hellas Verona welcomes Cagliari. The Mastiffs have caused another upset last week by beating Atalanta in Bergamo 2-0.
That’s a second scalp after snatching one point from Juventus in Torino. They are currently sitting in very solid 7th place with 15 points. Potential victory against Cagliari could temporarily move them to 3rd position! Now that could be an extra source of motivation. Visitors from Sardinia have inconsistent results lately, sitting in the middle of the table.

Hellas Verona vs Cagliari Prediction
One thing we forgot to mention above is that Hellas Verona avoided defeat at San Sirro as well. Duel against leaders AC Milan ended without winner 2-2 FT. When it comes to home performances, Ivan Juric’s boys have been very consistent at Bentegodi. They have three victories, one draw and one defeat in the last five appearances here. Antonin Barak has been the most valuable player so far with three goals and one assist. Mastiffs have the lowest 2.11 number of goals per match in Serie A this season.
Cagliari are completely the opposite, playing very aggressive football with open formations. Average number of goals scored in their domestic duels so far is 3.89. Players were so disappointed last weekend after failing to beat Spezia. They outplayed the opposition and had the lead all until 90th minute. All in all we are expecting a narrow contest with small number of goals.
