Reason For Fiorentina vs Cagliari Predictions

  • Fiorentina have conceded in 77% of their Serie A games
  • The Viola have seen both teams score in their last four home matches
  • Cagliari have conceded in 12 of 15 away trips
  • The hosts have seen both teams score in seven of their last eight league matches

Fiorentina back on form

A 2-1 victory over Parma last time out has put Fiorentina a little closer to safety. The Italian giants were facing a relegation battle for the second season on the bounce, but they are edging towards safety after their much-needed win. It was their first success since a 5-1 victory over Sampdoria, the Viola had gone five matches without a win since.

With rumours about Danielle Di Rossi taking over in the hot seat swirling around Fiorentina, the hosts have rallied at the right time. However, can they follow that up with a victory in this home meeting with Cagliari? After a tough season at their own ground, there’s reason to believe that the Sardinians can cause problems here.

Viola’s home woes

Fiorentina have won only three times in 15 home matches so far this season. They are without a victory in their last five matches here in Serie A, which has contributed to their poor campaign. However, the Viola have deeper problems, with their defence a clear issue. The hosts have conceded far too many goals this term, with 77% of their league matches seeing them fail to keep a clean sheet.

Each of the last four Serie A games played at the Artemio Franchi have seen both sides score. Meanwhile, each of their four games since the restart have seen both teams score. Following that run, it is little surprise that we’re backing goals once again at the Franchi, with the visitors looking sharp on the road all season.

Little case for the defence

Cagliari have failed to score only twice on the road all season, while they have found the net in six of their last seven matches away from home. That’s led to 10 of their 15 away trips finishing with both teams finding the net. The Sardinians aren’t quite as sharp at the back, having shipped 1.3 goals per away match, shipping a goal in 12 of their 15 outings on the road in Serie A this season.

Meanwhile, seven of Fiorentina’s last eight matches have all seen both teams find the net. With Cagliari showing an attacking mentality in their Serie A campaign, we expect the goals to keep coming for the hosts. Neither side look all that solid at the back, while a pulsating Serie A restart has us focusing on both teams to score as our opening prediction in this clash.

We do see Fiorentina picking up a crucial home victory, as Cagliari haven’t been great on the road this season. On top of that, Cagliari boss Walter Zenga has lost each of his five Serie A meetings against Fiorentina in his managerial career. We see him on the losing side once again, as a 2-1 victory for the hosts is our correct score prediction.
