TIP OF THE DAY: Cagliari – Sassuolo: Cagliari shines in Sardinia lately, but the Neroverdi are not a welcome guest!

On Monday, the betting offer is somewhat weaker than it has been in the past few days, and this time we have analyzed the last match of the 15th round of Serie A, in which Cagliari will host Sassuolo at their home ground. The match between these two teams is scheduled to start at 20:45.

Cagliari: Impressive performances in Sardinia lately!

This season, Cagliari has returned to the top tier of Italian football, after the team from Sardinia celebrated a victory in the playoff final away at Bari (0:1), all thanks to Pavoletti’s goal in the fourth minute of injury time. As a reminder, the first duel between these two teams ended with a 1:1 score, and it seemed that there would be no winner in the rematch either. However, Pavoletti then stepped up and proved that he has been one of the best Italian strikers for years.

After that match, there was a huge celebration among Cagliari fans, and it was truly emotional to see coach Ranieri being carried in the arms of his players. Of course, the primary goal this time is to stay in Serie A, and at this moment, the team from Sardinia is in the penultimate place on the table with only ten points earned. It’s certain that the popular Sards are facing a fierce battle for survival, possibly until the last round.

So far, the team led by the legendary Claudio Ranieri has played fourteen league matches and achieved only two victories, four draws, and as many as eight losses. In their last five matches, Cagliari has achieved two victories, the same number of losses, and one draw at their stadium against the quite formidable Monza, which is playing quite well this season too.

In the last round, the team from Sardinia was defeated away at Lazio, with the match ending 1:0. This is not so bad considering that the Romans played with one more player for a whole seventy minutes, after Makumbu was sent off in the middle of the first half. Regarding performances at home, Ranieri’s pupils have played seven matches at their stadium, achieving two victories and draws each, along with three losses.

The only two wins in the current championship for the returnee to the top tier of Italian football were achieved at home against Frosinone and Genoa. Particularly noteworthy is the duel against Frosinone, where we saw seven goals (4:3), with the victory for the Sards being secured by Pavoletti in the seventh minute of injury time, even though the guests were leading 0:3 until the 72nd minute of the match.

The last head-to-head encounter between Cagliari and Sassuolo was played in April last year, where the team from Sardinia celebrated a 1:0 victory at their stadium.

Sassuolo: What are the ultimate limits of this team?

If we look back a bit, we find that it has been exactly ten years since Sassuolo achieved their inaugural promotion to the top tier of Italian football. What is most important is that the popular Neroverdi, in those ten seasons, have never had major problems with staying in the top league. We must also mention their qualification for the group stage of the Europa League in 2016, which the Italian representative achieved after a victory in a two-legged tie against Red Star Belgrade.

Regarding last season, the team from Reggio Emilia played several truly brilliant matches, but as in previous years, Sassuolo was not consistent and ultimately had to settle for thirteenth place in the table, but with a fourteen-point advantage over the teams that unfortunately got relegated. So, it’s fair to say that their survival was never really in doubt.

This will, of course, be the primary goal again, with the observation that the Neroverdi, for the first time in a while, managed to keep the team from last season, and on top of that, several very interesting reinforcements arrived at the club before the start of this season.

Currently, Alessio Dionisi’s charges are in fourteenth place in the table with fifteen points, which is four points more than the teams in the relegation zone. In their last five matches, the team from Reggio Emilia has achieved only one victory, with two losses and two draws. In the last round, Sassuolo experienced another defeat in the match against Roma, ending 1:2.

The host did not disgrace themselves in that encounter, leading 1:0 until the 76th minute, but the Romans showed character and secured an important victory in the Champions League race with goals from Dybala and Christensen. Before that, the club from Reggio Emilia played a fantastic match away at Empoli and achieved a victory. That match in Tuscany saw seven goals, ending 3:4, with the guests securing the win with a goal from Berardi in injury time.

An interesting fact is that Sassuolo is the team that managed to defeat Inter and Juventus, who are currently in first and second place, respectively. It’s noteworthy that these were the only defeats for both teams so far, and it goes without saying that these two teams have shown the most in this year’s edition of the Italian Serie A.
