The Top Two Tips for Cagliari vs Lazio
Cagliari are in the midst of a relegation battle in Serie A, while this weekend's guests, Lazio, are challenging for the European places. The visitors have a great recent record against Cagliari and head into the game as the bookmaker's favourites to secure all 3pts.
Lazio to Win
Lazio have won six of their last seven games against Cagliari and we're backing the away side to end the weekend victorious once again. Cagliari are in the midst of an unbeaten run though, so we are still expecting the game to be closely fought. Lazio have played a lot of tricky games of late and aren't the form favourites ahead of their trip to Cagliari but we're still backing Immobile and co to get a result.
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven league meetings between Cagliari and Lazio, including the 2-2 draw the pair played out in Rome back in September. Both teams have found the back of the net in each of Cagliari's last five fixtures, all in Serie A, while Lazio's last four games n all competitions have produced goals at both ends of the pitch.

Bellanova handed Cagliari the lead in the 21st-minute after good work from Grassi and the visitors lead 1-0 at the break. Belotti, a Torino hero, equalised in the 54th-minute and many expected the hosts to go on and win the game.
