Venezia vs Cagliari: prediction for the Serie A match
Venezia have shown sparks of brilliance in this Serie A season, but they were extremely inconsistent, and soon got a ticket back to Serie B. The caretaker of the club Andrea Sonchin tried to save Venezia in spring, but they lost too many points along the way. In the previous two matches, the Winged Lions beat Bologna (4:3) in a very dramatic battle and drew against Roma (1:1).
Cagliari are currently in 18th place in the standings, two points behind Salernitana. The team hopes for a last-minute miracle - if they win in Venice today, and Salernitana lose at home, they can stay in Serie A. Alessandro Agostini's team is in poor form and has earned only one point in the previous four games - they drew against the same Salernitana (1:1).
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 8 home games of Venezia.
In the last 3 home games, the club has consistently scored after halftime.
This bet played in 4 of the last 5 outings of Cagliari.
Venezia are definitely getting relegated to Serie B, but at the moment they are in good form and might just slam the door on the way out. Cagliari have looked terrible in recent games, but they still have a chance to retain their residence in the Italian elite. Cagliari have tons of motivation, but we will be backing the hosts.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (+1) to Venezia
We do not expect a high-scoring game here. The Islanders will try to keep a clean sheet, so probably just one or two goals will be scored in this fixture. Take the under.
Second bet - total under 2.5 goals
