Our Free Betting Tips for Cagliari vs Verona
Cagliari continue their bid to remain in Serie A for another season with a home game against mid-table side Verona. The visitors are best placed to finish 9th this season as they have a 3pts lead over Sassuolo but remain 6pts behind Atalanta in 8th.
We're predicting goals at both ends of the pitch in this game as four of the last six meetings between Cagliari and Verona in all competitions have ended the same way. Both teams have found the back of the net in two of Cagliari'slast four league games and the host shave only failed to score in one of those fixtures. Four of Verona's last six outings in Serie A have also ended with both teams scoring and the visitors have only failed to score in one of those games.
In terms of a final scoreline, we're backing this game to end in a 1-1 draw. Two of the last three league meetings between the pair have ended in stalemates and both have produced under 2.5 goals. Cagliari picked up a win in their last home game and haven't scored more than one goal in any of their last six fixtures, while Verona have played out two 1-1 draws in their last five matches and have only scored more than one goal in one of their last six outings.
