Cagliari vs Atalanta Match Preview
Atalanta are scoring goals for fun away from home this season and will aim to make it a second triumphant visit to Sardinia within three weeks.
The team from Bergamo are far and away the highest scorers on the road in Serie A this term, their 29 goals putting them eight clear of runaway leaders Juventus. And just for good measure, they added 12 more in just two Europa League qualifiers before failing to reach the group stage!
It was 2-0 when Atalanta beat Cagliari at the Sardegna Arena in the Coppa Italia last month and they have subsequently enjoyed a fantastic 3-0 victory at home to Juventus to reach the semi-finals of that competition along with AC Milan, Fiorentina and Lazio.
But in fairness to Cagliari, they have been difficult to score goals against at home in the league this season and Napoli are the only team to have beaten them on their own pitch.
The Sardinians have won only one of their last eight games, however, and whereas Atalanta are in the running for European football again next term, Cagliari need to ensure they do not drop too close to the relegation zone.
With Atalanta substantially odds-on here, there is not much betting value to be had but backing a clean sheet to be kept does appeal – especially based upon these clubs’ recent meetings (see stats above).
