Fiorentina to Win

Reason for tip

Cagliari secured survival last weekend and may struggle to get themselves up for this game, while Fiorentina are still looking to guarantee a place in Europe for next season. La Viola won the reverse fixture 3-0 and can complete a league double over their hosts.

Fiorentina 2-1

Reason for tip

Fiorentina have scored at least two goals in four of their last six games, and exactly two in each of their last two, while Cagliari have scored in nine straight home games and the away side have gone seven games without a clean sheet so a 2-1 win for Fiorentina looks a reasonable correct score prediction.

M'Bala Nzola To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

M’Bala Nzola started in attack for Fiorentina against Napoli last time and managed his second goal in five games since returning from injury. The Angolan should keep his starting spot here and he can add to his haul against Cagliari.

M’Bala Nzola To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

M’Bala Nzola started in attack for Fiorentina against Napoli last time and managed his second goal in five games since returning from injury. The Angolan should keep his starting spot here and he can add to his haul against Cagliari.

Alessandro Deiola To be Shown A Card

Reason for tip

Cagliari defender Alessandro Deiola has seven bookings in 27 Serie A appearances this season and four of them have come in his last seven games. Deiola has committed fouls in 10 of his last 11 league appearances and multiple fouls in five of those, so he looks a good value pick for a card on Thursday.

Eldor Shomurodov To Have 1+ Shots On Target

Reason for tip

Cagliari’s Eldor Shomurodov has managed at least two attempts on goal in five of his last 10 games, with 17 attempts in total across that period. The Uzbekistani forward tends to be fairly accurate with exactly half of his attempts either on target or blocked, so he can at least test the keeper when Fiorentina visit Sardinia.

Cagliari vs Fiorentina Predictions

  • Cagliari guaranteed survival last time out.
  • La Viola won the reverse fixture 3-0.

Europe the goal for Fiorentina

Fiorentina will qualify for the Europa League if they beat Olympiacos in the Europa Conference League final next week, but they can ensure they leave nothing to chance by overcoming Cagliari on Thursday.

La Viola currently hold eighth place and that comes with an ECL spot. A win will secure the spot they currently occupy and they should be able to overcome a Cagliari outfit who are now safe from the drop thanks to last weekend’s win at Sassuolo and their superior head-to-head record with Empoli.

Cagliari largely adopt a defence first approach but the fact they are now safe means they can play with a bit more freedom in their season finale. However, Fiorentina are the team with a target to play for and they should be able to overcome the Sardinians, despite the fact they will have one league game remaining after this one as well as their European final.

Cagliari’s win over Sassuolo ended a five-game winless run and Fiorentina come into the game on the back of a strong performance themselves, having held key rivals Napoli to a 2-2 draw last time out.

Gli Isolani have been in good form at home and they’re unbeaten in six at this venue, winning two of those games, but they were scrapping for survival during that period and may ease up this week. La Viola won the reverse fixture 3-0 and can complete a league double over Cagliari, but the scoreline may not be quite so empathic.

A 2-1 win for the visitors is the correct score prediction as Fiorentina have scored at least two goals in four of their last six games, and exactly two in each of their last two, while Cagliari have scored in nine straight home games and the away side have gone seven games without a clean sheet.

M’Bala Nzola started in attack for Fiorentina against Napoli and managed his second goal in five games since returning from injury. The Angolan should keep his starting spot here and he can add to his haul against Cagliari.
