Tip Reasoning

  • Roma have won six of their 11 home league games; only five Serie A teams have a better home record.
  • Cagliari have picked up just six points from their 10 away Serie A contests, conceding 22 goals.
  • Both teams have netted in each of Roma’s last four matches.

Mourinho’s men need to bounce back

Consecutive defeats to AC Milan and Juventus have left Roma nine points away from a top four place, and the Jose Mourinho project looks like unravelling in an all-too-familiar fashion, with the Portuguese lashing out at officials and questioning the quality of his squad in the aftermath of both.

However, Roma were outstanding for 70 minutes of their 4-3 loss to Juventus, producing arguably their best performance of the campaign before throwing away a two-goal lead. Roma also have a strong home record; winning six of 11 Serie A games at the Stadio Olimpico, and they will be confident of bouncing back against Cagliari, who they beat 2-1 in Sardinia earlier this season.

Cagliari have racked up crucial back-to-back wins since Christmas, moving to within one point of safety, but have only taken six points from 10 away league games. Walter Mazzarri’s team have also kept just one clean sheet in 23 outings in all competitions this season.

Roma to edge out Sardinians, but not without difficulty

Roma’s record of 28 goals conceded gives them just the seventh-strongest defensive record in the Italian top-flight, and their one and only clean sheet since November came against struggling Spezia.

Both teams have scored in each of the Romans’ last four games, and although Roma have enough about them to ease the pressure on Mourinho with a win, we’re backing that run to continue against a Cagliari team who are showing much-needed improvements.

A repeat of Roma’s earlier 2-1 win over Mazzarri’s team, meanwhile, seems a decent correct score prediction.
