Cagliari vs Bologna: Prediction
Cagliari, sitting at 7th position with four wins, three draws and two losses, extended their unbeaten run to seven games after a 1-1 draw away to Torino. Former Boca Juniors midfielder Nahitan Nandez opened his Cagliari account five minutes before the break, but Torino’s super-sub Simone Zaza levelled the score half an hour later. The Sardinians will be aiming to continue their good run of form when they take on Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team.
Bologna snapped their five-game winless streak with a 2-1 win over last-placed Sampdoria on Sunday. After a goalless first half, veteran striker Rodrigo Palacio gave Veltri the lead, Blucerchiati fought back through Gabbiadini, but defender Mattia Bani made all the difference in 78′. Currently 10th with the win-draw-loss record of 3-3-3, the Veltri will look to build on this win on Wednesday at Sardegna Arena.
Dijks, Tomiyasu, Destro and Medel are all out for the guests.
The Sardinians have 2-1-2 record at home. Rolando Maran’s men have an average of 1.40 goals scored per game at this venue, whilst conceding one per tie. Joao Pedro’s is Cagliari’s leading goal scorer with three goals, Castro and Simeone added two each.
The guests have one win, two draws and two losses away from Renato Dall’Ara this season. They are scoring 1.20 goals per game on their travels, whilst conceding bit more – 1.40 per bout. With Destro on the sidelines, Palacio stepped in with two goals in last three games.
Both teams have quality players, especially in midfield, and I rate them highly. I think we will see goals on both ends here and perhaps a Draw at full-time.
Cagliari let SPAL control the game for a while in their latest home fixture and Bologna regained their confidence with a win on Sunday. I have a 1-1 hunch here and I have to follow it with juicy odds.
