Tip Reasoning

  • Cagliari have conceded a league-high 26 goals this term, and haven’t kept a single clean sheet.
  • The visitors remain winless on the road, have one win in total in Serie A this season, and have lost 4 in a row.
  • Both teams have scored in 11 of the teams’ 15 head-to-head meetings.

Rock-Bottom Cagliari Face Tough Assignment

Cagliari boss Walter Mazzarri has only been in the job since mid-September, but faces increasing scrutiny after failing to turn around the Sardinians’ horrendous start to the Serie A campaign. Cagliari have won just once in their first 12 matches, against 18th-placed Sampdoria, while 2 of their 3 draws came at home to fellow strugglers Venezia and Spezia. Things are unlikely to get much easier this Sunday, as they travel to Sassuolo.

Also Sassuolo have been inconsistent, winning 4 and drawing 2 of their 12 games since the departure of highly rated boss Roberto De Zerbi, Alessio Dionisi has maintained their commitment to a progressive brand of football, and the hosts should certainly be expected to set the tempo on Sunday.

Their average possession figure of 56.7% is the league’s third-highest, behind only Napoli and Atalanta, while Cagliari average the second-lowest share of possession in Serie A, with 41.8%. The Sardinian visitors have also mustered the fewest shots on target in the whole of Serie A, while only Inter have bettered Sassuolo on that front.

Back Hosts for an Entertaining Win

Sassuolo have had highs and lows as they find their feet under new management, but should fare well against their struggling visitors. Cagliari’s 26 goals conceded this season is the joint-worst in Serie A, and Sassuolo should add to the misery of Mazzarri’s men on Sunday.

Having said that, both teams have scored in 75% of the hosts’ league matches this campaign, and in 67% of those featuring Cagliari. Both teams have also netted in 11 of the 15 meetings between the two sides, a run which I’m backing to continue here. I’m tipping a 2-1 Sassuolo victory for my correct score prediction, while a Sassuolo win with both teams netting seems a good bet.
