Sassuolo vs Cagliari: prediction for the Coppa Italia match
Sassuolohave been disappointing so far. Alessio Dionisi's team clearly was intent to join the competition for European football, but at the moment the Neroverdi are only in 12th place in the table. Sassuolo are losing 7 points to the 6th Fiorentina, and it will be extremely hard to catch up with the Violets. Moreover, Sassuolo are inconsistent of late - a defeat to Verona (2:4) in the last match extended the winless home streak to three games.
Cagliari's season is an absolute disaster. Walter Mazzarri's men are currently occupying the 18th line in the standings. The Rossoblu are trying to climb out of the relegation zone, and they even recorded two victories in January, over Sampdoria (2:1) and Bologna (2:1). But in the last round of Serie A games, the Sardinians suffered a defeat to Roma (0:1).
This score was recorded in 2 of Cagliari's last 3 games.
In the last 2 games of Sassuolo, this bet won.
This bet played in the last 5 head-to-head matches.
Sassuolo are inconsistent this season, but they are demonstrating quality football nevertheless. Cagliari are too busy fighting for survival, and we think they will not prioritize the cup game. Sassuolo should get the upper hand here.
Our prediction - Sassuolo to win
Sassuolo are showing a bright attacking style of football, and we expect them to create a large number of scoring chances. However, the Neroverdi rarely keep a clean sheet due to regular mistakes on the defensive. We are predicting at least three goals in the upcoming fixture.
Second bet - total over 2.5 goals
