Ahead of the clash between Cagliari and Roma on October 8, a stark contrast in the form of both teams is evident. Host Cagliari are without a win in their last seven Serie A matches. During this time, he scored only two goals, while conceding 12. The team's lack of efficiency in front of goal is also evidenced by expected goals (xG) in previous matches. Roma demonstrates a somewhat inconsistent game. However, they managed to score 15 goals, which indicates an effective attack. Defeat against Genoa, despite 71% possession, suggests Roma may be prone to counter-attacks.
Historically, Roma has an advantage in head-to-head matches: in the last 4 meetings with Cagliari, they won 3 times. An important factor that is often overlooked is fatigue from a busy match schedule. For example, Roma played on October 1, and just three days earlier, on September 28, they played another match. This can lead to team fatigue.
Analysis of detailed statistics shows that Roma have more possession of the ball in most matches. However, possession of the ball does not always lead to results, as was shown in the match with Genoa. In Roma matches there is often a flurry of shots on goal, with many of them hitting the target. This attacking power coupled with Cagliari's weak defense hints at potential scoring opportunities for Roma. Cagliari, despite their poor form, demonstrate persistence in fouls and the number of yellow cards, which indicates the combativeness of the midfield.
The upcoming clash between Cagliari and Roma shows a noticeable difference in form. Cagliari's defensive weakness has been exposed in recent weeks, with the team conceding 12 goals in their last seven Serie A matches. Roma, on the other hand, boast an impressive 15 goals in the same period, indicating that they have an effective attack. Moreover, an analysis of the meetings between the teams shows the dominance of Roma, which won three victories in the last four meetings with Cagliari. Given Roma's aggressive attack and Cagliari's defensive vulnerabilities, it is safe to say that the game could be a high-scoring one. Statistics, especially the number of goals scored by both teams in recent matches, suggest that more than 2.5 goals will be scored in this match.
Roma enter this match with a historic lead against Cagliari, having won three of their last four meetings. This, combined with a powerful attack, makes Roma the favorite in the upcoming match. 15 goals scored in recent matches highlight their attacking prowess. Conversely, despite Cagliari's poor form, they are showing signs of resilience and given the instability of Roma's defence, Cagliari could take a few chances. Thus, the likelihood that both teams will score a goal during the match is quite high. Therefore, betting on Roma to win while expecting goals from both sides is an interesting option with potentially profitable odds.
