Cagliari – Atalanta, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CAGLIARI - ATALANTA
Cagliari has recently lost to Atalanta for the Cup, so now they can fix this mistake with a good result. They are currently in a weak form, because they only have 1 win in the last 11 league matches, but now have no other tournaments to worry about, respectively they are concentrated in Serie A and their position is relatively far from the relegation zone.
Atalanta did something sensationally, defeating Juventus 3-0 for the Cup and once again proved how serious they are, especially, when it comes to home games. However, Atalanta should not be forgotten, because the top 4 fight is cruel and they are still lagging behind in this area with few points. They have 2 wins and 2 draws in the last 4 games in the league.
Cagliari defeated Atalanta with 1-0 in the last game here in Serie A, and earlier in the season also won by 1-0 as a guest of this team. Overall Cagliari scored against Atalanta in 7 consecutive Serie A games at home, the last one they failed to do so in 2009. Also, Cagliari are quite stable hosts and at home they only have 1 loss of 10 matches that has come very hard against Napoli in the last minutes. Atalanta has just 1 clean sheet as a guest this season and they also had a heavy game this week, so it’s only logical to expect Atalanta to concede a goal of 1.53.
