Juventus vs Cagliari Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Juventus vs Cagliari betting tips & predictions

Juventus will start their 2017/18 season at home to Cagliari on Saturday as they look to win the Serie A title for the seventh consecutive season. They, you would assume are favorites to go on and win that seventh in a row, but a whole lot has changed with the Biaconeri this season. Their opponents Cagliari come off an 11th placed finish last term after they gained promotion the year before, and they will be hoping to solidify their place in Serie A this term. Juventus have already lost a trophy this season after they fell to Lazio in the SuperCoppa Italia on Sunday to Lazio by a score of 2-3. The Old Lady had fallen two goals behind only to equalize through a late Paulo Dybala brace. However, Lazio scored just two minutes after Dybala's equalizing goal to give them the first Italian trophy of the new season. Cagliari, meanwhile, were busy in Coppa Italia action on Saturday at home to Palermo. Joao Pedro scored for them on the stroke of half time but they were pegged back and forced into extra time, were they eventually settled for, and won, on penalties. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Cagliari have just four wins all time against Juve in 35 played, and they have not beaten the Old Lady since way back in 2009. Before that, it was 1999 when they were able to beat them. So we are two years off it seems from that fate. Juve did not concede to this Cagliari side last season, winning 4-0 at home and 0-2 in the away fixture. It's hard to see them getting a goal this time around either. Juventus to win and keep a clean sheet is a 4/7, which is much better than just taking Juve to win. If you believe Juve can win by more than two, which is very much a possibility due to their squad depth and quality, you can get 6/5 odds.

Juventus Preview

Juventus have not had the kind of preseason that dreams are made of. They have been all over the world it seems, and they have played fairly well in those matches. They have since, though, fallen to Spurs at Wembley and lost in the SuperCoppa. That is a huge problem for them, but even more so considering all of the players they have lost over the course of the summer. The departure of a key veteran in Leonardo Bonucci, and the impending departure of another in Gianluigi Buffon, coupled with a rising power in the capital, means Juve will have their work cut out for them this season. Juve had brought in the likes of Douglas Costa, Federico Bernadeschi, and Mattia De Sciglio, but it's still not known whether they will be as good this term.

Juventus Team News

Max Allegri will be without left winger Marko Pjaca and young forward Lorenzo Rossetti through injuries for this match. The manager also will have some thinking to do about his central defence, as he pulled Mehdi Benatia early in favor of a shift in his bac line.

Cagliari Preview

Cagliari come off a strong season last term that saw them comfortably steer clear of the relegation zone. They've left the manager is place that helped them gain promotion and that result, and will be hoping to push on some or to at least hold their place where they were. They've made some signings this off season in an attempt to get better, bringing in promising youngsters like goalkeeper Alessio Cragno and center backs Marco Andreolli and Filipp Roagna. They've managed to do that while hanging on to a good chunk of their side from last season, so they should improve.

Cagliari Team News

Massimo Rastelli will be without forward Federico Melchiorri, who is still dealing with an injury from way back in December of last year.
