Reason For Cagliari vs Napoli Predictions

  • Napoli have won 4 of their last 5 games.
  • Cagliari have failed to win any of their last 10 games.
  • Cagliari have conceded 2+ goals in 8 of their last 10.
  • The Sardinians have let in 2+ goals in 6 consecutive home games.

Signs of Recovery for Napoli

When you’re in need of a result, a cup semi-final win away to the current league leaders isn’t a bad boost to get. Napoli are ahead after the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final, while they are hoping that they can deliver after their 1-0 success at Inter.

The cup has galvanised this Napoli side, with four victories in five including wins over Lazio and Inter in recent weeks. On top of that, Napoli have recently beaten Juventus, so 2020 is working out pretty well for them. Now they’re hoping to boost hopes of a European finish with a result in this trip to Cagliari.

Cagliari Collapse

While Napoli are on the up, Cagliari are heading in the opposite direction. The hosts have failed to win in 2020, while they are now 10 matches without a victory. Having started the campaign on a high note, the Sardinians are really suffering after their great run of form was ended. That’s left them on a low note ahead of this clash.

Cagliari’s strong start means they are still ahead of Napoli in the table, with the hosts in eighth place. However, Napoli can leapfrog them with a win here, while the Partenopei would also claim a little revenge with a victory, having lost at home to Cagliari earlier in the season.

Partenopei Shooting Practice

A big part of Cagliari’s struggles this term has been their defensive woes. The visitors have conceded twice or more in eight of their last 10 matches in all competitions. At home they’ve been incredibly leaky. Against sides outside the relegation zone, Cagliari have conceded twice or more in seven of their eight games.

That’s likely to offer plenty of chances to Napoli, a side who haven’t been shy in terms of their scoring record this season. They may have struggled for results, but on the road, Napoli have scored 21 times in 11 away trips. We see them scoring another couple here, after bagging 14 goals in six meetings with Cagliari. Given that the hosts have shipped two goals or more in six straight home games, over 1.5 Napoli goals is our tip.

Meanwhile, with Napoli winning four out of five and Cagliari losing six of their last 10, we are backing Napoli to continue a four-game winning streak away to the Sardinians. We’re backing a 2-1 success for Gattuso and his men, with both teams scoring in 70% of the pairs’ Serie A games this season.
