Reason For Bologna vs Cagliari Predictions

  • Cagliari have failed to score only twice away from home this term.
  • Bologna have scored in 12 of their last 14 at home.
  • The hosts are without a clean sheet in their last 23 Serie A games.
  • Bologna have won 2-1 on three occasions at home already this season.

Both sides pushing for Europe

Bologna and Cagliari are on the fringes of the fight for Europe, which marks an impressive rise by both. Bologna have been transformed in 18 months under Sinisa Mihajlovic, who has taken them from the drop zone to within five points of the Europa League.

Meanwhile, back-to-back wins have shot Cagliari into the fight for Europe. They’ve moved within four points of Milan, which is impressive given that they’d failed to win their last 12 games before that. Walter Zenga has started to turn things around for the Sardinians, but will that continue in this visit to Bologna?

Expect goals from the two entertainers

Both of these sides have thrilled with their displays this term, having put together some excellent attacking displays in their bid for Europe. Bologna’s win at Sampdoria took them to 40 goals for the season, while Cagliari have 47 to their name. They’ve each got strength across the frontline, which is fueling their bid for a Europa League place. We can expect to see more of that here, with Cagliari scoring in all but two of their away trips and Bologna hitting the target in 12 of 14 at home.

However, their attacking principles are hurting them at the back. Neither side has much of a defensive record this term. Cagliari have managed a single clean sheet in their last 19 games in all competitions. Meanwhile, Bologna have conceded in each of their last 13 home games in the league – an all-time negative record for them in the top-flight. They are without a clean sheet in their last 23 matches in the league, so the Rossoblu can’t be relied on defensively.

Given that form, we are going with both teams to score as our first prediction here. We see another thrilling clash following up the 3-2 win Cagliari produced when they met earlier this season.

Edge for Rossoblu

Historically, this fixture has been kind to the hosts. Bologna and Cagliari have met 29 times at the Dall’Ara, with the hosts leading by 15 wins to six. They’ve been excellent in recent clashes, as Bologna are unbeaten in their last seven home games against Cagliari (W5 D2). Can they extend that fantastic return on Wednesday night?

Sinisa Mihajlovic has a managerial record of eight wins, two draws and two defeats against Cagliari so far – only against Chievo (9) he has won more games as a manager in the top-flight. We expect him to edge this meeting with Zenga, especially coming off the back of their win at Samp. Our correct score prediction is a fourth 2-1 home victory of the season for Bologna.
