          Cagliari vs Juventus: Preview & Prediction

          Cagliari host Juventus in a game which will have a big impact at both ends of the Serie A table. Three points will be crucial for either team as the season soon draws to a close.

          Date: 19/04/24

          Kick-off time: 19:45

          Venue: Sardegna Arena

          With six games remaining, Juventus will be looking over the shoulders rather than ahead. The league title is officially gone, and AC Milan are six points ahead in second. Whilst they could still catch them, they must be wary of the teams behind. Bologna trail them by four points, and Roma by eight. A win this weekend would strengthen their position in the top four, and it would be unlikely they relinquish their place. However, a defeat would give the teams below them the opportunity to capitalise.

          In contrast, Cagliari are battling to avoid relegation. They are currently 14th with 30 points, but this is just three points above the bottom three. What could perhaps be in their favour is that there are three other teams separating themselves and the relegation zone. Maximum points could see them move up a place in the table, but any dropped points could leave them in a more precarious position. They are hoping to retain their top flight status for a second consecutive season, following one campaign in Serie B.

          Goals may be hard to come by in this game, with Juventus keeping four clean sheets in their last five, but only scoring four goals in this period. This includes two 0-0 draws and two 1-0 results. However, they still have plenty of attacking talent that can cause some issues for the opposition defence. Dusan Vlahovic has scored 15 goals this season, whilst Federico Chiesa has found the back of the net seven times. Cagliari’s goals have been spread out with four different players leading the charts with four goals. No other players have netted more than twice.

          Since 2020, these two teams have met six times in the league. It is a matchup that has been dominated by Juventus, with five victories to Cagliari’s one. The hosts’ only win came in 2020, as they won 2-0 at home. Luca Gagliano and Giovanni Simeone got the goals in the first half. This means that Juventus are winners of five in a row, looking to extend that to six. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended 2-1, with Bremer and Daniele Rugani scoring before Alberto Dossena pulled one back.

          Form Guide

          Cagliari

          In their last five games, Cagliari have won two, drawn two and lost one. It has been an inconsistent stretch for the team as they have struggled to record consecutive wins. However, the first game in this run resulted in victory as they beat bottom of the league Salernitana 4-2 at home. Gianluca Lapadula and Gianluca Gateano gave them a first half 2-0 lead before Eldor Shomurodov added a third. However, the visitors scored twice in as many minutes to get right back in the game. Shomurodov put the game to bed with 14 minutes to go.

          They followed this with a 1-0 defeat at Monza. They failed to get a single shot on target from 10 attempts, whilst their opponents dominated possession. The decisive goal came in the 42nd minute through Daniel Maldini. They dropped more points at home against Hellas Verona as they drew 1-1. The away side took the lead on the half hour mark with a goal from Federico Bonazzoli, though Cagliari cancelled it out thanks to Ibrahim Sulemana.

          Their only victory was at home to Atalanta. Gianluca Scammaca broke the deadlock 13 minutes in, but goals from Tommaso Augello and Nicolas Viola turning it around. The winner came late on with two minutes to go. Their most recent game was maybe their most impressive result, a 2-2 draw at league leaders Inter Milan. Marcus Thuram scored early, but Shomurodov equalised in the second half. Hakan Calhanoglu scored from the spot to regain the lead, before Viola levelled it once more.

          Juventus

          In their last five games, Juventus have won two, drawn two and lost one. It has been an inconsistent run for the Italian giants as they competed across two different competitions. This stretch began with a 0-0 draw at home to Genoa. The hosts dominated possession and shot attempts, but they could not find a breakthrough with just two shots on target. Their opponents offered little threat as the game ended goalless. They dropped even more points in the next game as they lost 1-0 away at Lazio. This defeat came in heartbreaking fashion with the Lazio winner coming in the 93rd minute from Adam Marusic. However, they faced the same opponents a couple of days later in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg. They were 2-0 winners as Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic got on the scoresheet.

          They returned to league action with a win which came at home against Fiorentina. It was a tight game in which they won 1-0, with Federico Gatti scoring the decisive goal. Their most recent game was another stalemate, this time at Torino. It was an even game with neither able to create many opportunities. Juventus had just eight total attempts with three on target.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          A lack of goals may be expected due to the rigid defensive displays by Juventus of late, as well as their difficulties in scoring goals. Cagliari are fighting for survival so will make it a tough game, but the superior quality of the visitors should prevail – Cagliari 0-1 Juventus
