The matches between the Salernitana and Cagliari teams last season ended in a draw, which indicates a certain balance in the confrontation between these teams. Historically, their head-to-head matches have been fairly even, but both teams have struggled recently. The date of the match suggests that neither team had a busy schedule leading up to this match, so fatigue should not be a determining factor.
Both teams are at the bottom of the standings, with Salernitana yet to win a single game. Salernitana cannot win. She concedes 17 goals in 8 matches. However, despite the weak defense, the team manages to deliver targeted shots and even dominate possession of the ball in some matches. This suggests they may just be missing the finishing touch. On the contrary, Cagliari, also in a precarious position, have two wins and tend to have fewer goals in their matches. But they have problems with attack: in the last eight matches they managed to score only three times.
Both Salernitana and Cagliari are having difficulty getting shots on target consistently. If you look at their recent matches, it becomes obvious that they tend to participate in low-scoring games. For example, Salernitana scored only four goals in the last eight matches, and Cagliari scored only three. Their defense, while not the tightest, appears to be in better shape than their attack. When two teams with these statistics meet, often neither team wants to overload themselves and risk losing, leading to cautious play. The odds of 1.70 are quite a decent profit for such a bet, and given the recent history of the teams, a bet on a total of less than 2.5 goals is a very likely outcome.
If we analyze their past meetings, we can note the balance. The last two direct matches ended in a draw, which hints at balance in the confrontation between the teams. Despite the fact that both teams are on a losing streak, their struggles are of a similar nature. Neither team was able to significantly outperform the other in either form or performance. With both teams looking to avoid defeat, it can be assumed that they will be more restrained in their actions. Ties often carry higher odds, and a bet at odds of 3.20 offers a lot of potential profit, especially when you consider their past experience playing against each other.
