SPAL 2013 vs Cagliari Match Prediction

By William Hall

SPAL and Cagliari each look to pull as far away as possible from the relegation zone at this earliest stage of the season when they meet on Sunday in Serie A play. SPAL lost 2-0 away to Inter Milan last weekend, while Cagliari got their first win at home to Crotone 1-0. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These teams' only previous meeting was in last year's Coppa Italia in August. That match saw Cagliari walk away with a dominant 5-1 win thanks to four goals from Marco Borriello on the day. Interestingly enough, he now plays for the team that he struck all of those goals against! This new team bounce from SPAL is surely set to end at some point, and it should do so here against Cagliari, who are somehow outsiders for this match.

SPAL 2013 Preview

SPAL have gotten off to a very good start to the season after gaining promotion from Serie B for the very first time in their history as a club- albeit a very short one. SPAL got that 0-0 away draw at Lazio to begin the season, and though it took them riding their luck, it is looking way more impressive after they demolished Milan last weekend. They then got a 3-2 home win against Udinese before this past weekend's 2-0 defeat at Inter Milan. The loss wasn't really a bad one at all, though, as SPAL weren't made to be embarrassed. They actually played pretty well in the match, and they were ultimately beaten by a Mauro Icardi penalty and a wonder goal from Ivan Perisic. Had they not made the mistake on the penalty, they would have been very narrow losers in the end. It's been a good start for them, and they are well on their way toward respectability.

SPAL 2013 Team News

Young goalkeeper Alex Meret continues to be out with muscular problems, while center back Marios Oikonomou is also out with a muscle injury of his own. The latter should return next week, however.

Cagliari Preview

Cagliari had one of the tougher starts to the season that any team in Serie A possibly could have faced. They were asked to go to Juventus and then to go to the San Siro to face AC Milan on the opening two weekends. Coming away with no goals scored and zero points was expected, but they actually ran Milan closer than many thought that they would in a 2-1 loss there. That did breed some confidence, and it showed through in a tangible way when they got a 1-0 win at home over Crotone last Sunday. In what was a fairly even game, Crotone were punished by the intelligent running and finishing of Marco Sau on the day.

Cagliari Team News

Striker Federico Melchiorri remains out after his knee injury that happened way back in December of last year.
