Cagliari vs Pescara Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Cagliari and Pescara will square off at the Stadio Sant’Elia on Sunday afternoon, with both sides aiming to return to winning ways in the Serie A. Cagliari suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat on the road at Udinese last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Marco Borriello with just four minutes to go. On the flip side, Pescara lost 1-4 at home at the hands of Roma, with Ahmad Benali scoring Zdenek Zeman’s men sole goal with just seven minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

With Pescara already relegated into the Serie B, I’m expecting Cagliari to bounce back to winning ways here and build on their recent 4-0 home win over ChievoVerona. Furthermore, Cagliari have won four of their last five home meetings with Pescara across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. 

Cagliari to win at 8/13

Cagliari Preview

Cagliari have endured a mixed run of form over the past two months, losing five, winning three and drawing two of their last ten games in the Serie A. The Rossoblu managed an impressive 4-0 home win over ChievoVerona a fortnight ago, but succumbed to a 2-1 away defeat at Udinese last weekend. Despite their recent run of form, Cagliari sit comfortably in 13th spot in the league table tied on 38 points with the 12th-placed ChievoVerona, already 14 points clear of the bottom three. Cagliari have been scoring goals for fun throughout the season as they managed an impressive tally of 46 goals in 33 rounds, which is the best-attacking record in the bottom half of the table. However, the Rossoblu haven’t been that strong at the back as they have one of the most leakiest defences in the division, conceding 64 goals in 33 rounds. Marco Borriello has enjoyed an excellent Serie A campaign despite this age, as the 34-year-old striker is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 16 goals in his 34 league appearances. At home, Cagliari were on a five-game winless streak in the Serie A prior to their 4-0 victory over Chievo in their most recent home league fixture.

Pescara Preview

On the contrary, Pescara’s abysmal run in the Serie A continued on Monday as they were beaten 1-4 at home by Roma. They are currently on an eight-game winless streak in the Serie A since an unexpected 5-0 home victory over Genoa back in the middle of February. The Delfini are rock bottom of the league table with just 14 points to their name after 33 rounds, which means they are already relegated to the Serie B. Their terrible defence has been the main reason for Pescara’s relegation as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 74 goals in 33 league games. Actually, they have conceded at least two goals in ten of their last 15 games across all competitions and have only kept one clean sheet in the process. Away from home, Pescara have only collected six points from their 16 league trips so far this season. Furthermore, Pescara have only won once in their five visits to the Stadio Sant’Elia and conceded at least two goals in four of these. Gianluca Caprari has been Pescara’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as the 23-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with eight goals and two assists in his 30 league appearances.
