Cagliari vs Juventus – Preview and betting prediction

Walter Zenga’s Cagliari have slipped in the Serie A since the restart but will be looking to give the champions a tough fight in their domestic fixture.

Cagliari had an impressive start to Serie A season and were fighting for European slots before the coronavirus lockdown. 

They have since faltered in their ambitions and are winless (D4, L4) in their last eight domestic fixtures. With a paltry three games scored during this run, their problems go deep. 

To cap of their misery, they welcome recently crowned Serie A champions Juventus to the Sardegna Arena. 

However, they should count their blessings as Juve are on the worst slump of their season. The Old Lady have registered only two wins in their last six Serie A matches (W2, D2, L2). 

What to bet on?

Juventus to win

Despite this, Juventus remain favorites for winning the fixture. Cagliari have only scored once in their last four matches at home, while Juve have scored 2 or more goals in 9 of their 10 recent outings.

Over 2.5

An interesting anecdote for the Rossoblu’s four-match winless streak at home is that all of those matches were under 2.5.

While Juventus’ away matches have resulted in over 2.5 in 11 of their 12 games, expect another over 2.5 result even if Cagliari fail to score.

Anytime goalscorer: Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo is chasing Ciro Immobile for the Capocannoniere title. The prolific Portuguese forward has hit the back of the net nine times in Juventus’ Serie A travels.

According to Oddschecker, Ronaldo is priced at -175 to score against Cagliari.
