Cagliari vs Fiorentina: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Cagliari didn't win in the last four head-to-head matches. Can the hosts break this streak and beat Fiorentina on January 23? Our prediction is in the article below.
Cagliari performed poorly in the first half of the season and failed to climb out of the relegation zone before the winter break. However,Walter Mazzarri's team hasn't lost all hope yet: the Islanders are only two points behind the safe 17th line. This week, Cagliari suffered a 0:1 defeat to Sassuolo and got knocked out of Coppa Italia.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, are enjoying success this season. Currently, Vincenzo Italiano's charges are in the 6th posotion in the Serie A standings with a total of 35 points in the asset. The Violets are losing seven points to the top-4, and it is still possible to close that gap and get Champions League. In the last round of games, Fiorentina crushed Genoa with a score of 6:0.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 8 matches of Cagliari.
In the last 2 games of Fiorentina, this bet won.
The striker scored in the last 2 games.
Cagliari are in poor form and too many of their players are currently in covid protocol. Fiorentina won't waste this chance to earn three points and come closer to the Champions League zone. The Violets should get the upper hand here.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) to Fiorentina
Fiorentina have been playing aggressively on the offensive of late, and in the last two games they scored 11 goals. Cagliari will be without their main defenders, so we doubt they will be able to stop the attack of the Violets.
Second bet - total over 2.5 goals
