Reason For Parma vs Cagliari Predictions

It’s been an underwhelming return to action for Cagliari, who had looked strong after a busy summer. They haven’t followed up on their transfer business in the opening clashes, with back to back home defeats. Now they’re on the road this weekend, with things looking even tougher for the Sardinians ahead of this meeting with Parma.

The hosts have three points from two games, which is understandable after starting off at home to Juve. Parma haven’t disappointed across their first two outings, while they have steadied the ship following a terrible finish to last season. The hosts dropped into the relegation battle late last term, something they’ll be aiming to avoid with a stronger start this time around.

Cagliari put up the money for some decent additions this summer, but they failed to land the high profile striker they wanted. Leonardo Pavoletti was their main man up top, but his recent injury makes Cagliari’s lack of movement there seem like a mistake. To make matters worse, their big summer signing, Radja Nainggolan, will miss this clash through injury too.

Without their star names, Cagliari are vulnerable here. They’ve already kicked off with two defeats from two, which means they have now lost six of their last seven Serie A games after a poor finish last term. The hope around them has all but gone, with pressure starting to grow following their slip into Serie A’s bottom three.

The visitors had a terrible away record last season, losing 12 of their 19 away trips. They have lost eight of their last 11 overall ahead of their first away game of the new season. Following back to back losses to start the new season, it is easy to see why we are opposing a weakened Cagliari here.

The meetings between these two last season brought two home wins and we’re backing a third. Parma were in complete control in their 3-1 win at Udinese last time out, while they look good to follow up on that with a victory on Sunday. Parma to win is our tip, with the hosts well priced despite winning two of their three competitive games so far.

Parma were able to win their clashes with struggling sides to nil last term, with a 2-0 victory over Cagliari among five clean sheets at home to the lowest placed ix teams who they faced. That solid return has us backing a clean sheet this weekend, so we are going with a 1-0 home win to settle this clash.
