Tip Reasoning

  • Salernitana have won four and drawn one of their last five games to escape the relegation zone.
  • Cagliari, on the other hand, have lost seven of their last eight contests and sacked coach Walter Mazzarri earlier this week.
  • The visitors have shipped 10 goals in their last five outings.

Salernitana approach monumental contest in great form

Having looked destined for an immediate return to Serie B all season, Salernitana have embarked on a five-match unbeaten run under Davide Nicola, winning four of those games, to escape the bottom three. Should Salernitana beat managerless Cagliari at the weekend, they would open up a four-point cushion with two games remaining and all but complete their great escape.

Cagliari will be coached by Alessandro Agostini, who has no previous managerial experience, after dispensing with the experienced Walter Mazzarri this week after a 2-1 loss to Verona. Cagliari have now lost seven of their last eight matches, conceding 10 goals in their last five outings and creating less than one expected goal (xG) in six of their last eight. Things are looking bleak for the Sardinians.

Nicola’s hosts, on the other hand, have produced the most remarkable of turnarounds. After spending almost the entire season with Serie A’s worst attacking record, Salernitana have scored eight goals in their last five, failing to score in just three of their last 15 outings. Although playing Venezia on Thursday means Salernitana may have heavy legs, they have generated momentum with their fantastic turnaround and will approach Sunday’s clash in great spirits.

Hosts can continue incredible form to all but relegate Cagliari

Given Salernitana’s terrific run of form, backing the hosts for a vital win which would all but seal Cagliari’s relegation looks by far the strongest bet for this encounter.

However, both teams have netted in five of the last six games to feature Salernitana, and given the stakes at play, Cagliari will put up a fight. A nervy 2-1 home win looks a strong correct score prediction.
