Cagliari vs Bologna: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Cagliari failed the first half of the season. The Sardinians were losing points in every game, and soon the club board decided it was time to change the manager. However, Cagliari didn't really improve their performance under Walter Mazzarri. Before the winter break, the hosts had an 11-game winless streak.
For the first match of the new year, Cagliari travelled to Genoa, where the Sardinians recorded a strong-willed victory over Sampdoria with a score of 2:1. Currently, Cagliari are 18th in the Serie A table, four points shy of reaching the safe 17th line.
Bologna, unlike their current hosts, had a successful start to the season. At a certain point, Sinisa Mikhajlovic's team was even considered one of the contenders for the European club competition, but they failed to keep up with the other teams and soon dropped out. Before the winter break, Bologna sat in 11th place in the table.
The Rossoblu ended a three-game losing streak in the last match in 2021. They unexpectedly defeated Sassuolo (3:0) away. Theoretically, Bologna still have a chance for European football as they are losing only five points to the 6th Fiorentina.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 5 games between the clubs.
In 3 of Cagliari's last 4 home games, this bet won.
Bologna scored in the second half in their last 4 away games.
In the last round of Serie A games, Cagliari ended their long losing streak. Today they will be looking to build on that success and strengthen their standings. They have a good chance to beat Bologna, who are weakened by the pandemic and will be playing without some of their key players.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Cagliari
The hosts aren't in great from, but they desperately need a win. We believe they will be able to defeat Bologna by a narrow margin.
Second wager - Cagliari to win by 1 goal
