7 matches in Serie A on Sunday. In this post tips and match review of Cagliari - Verona, Atalanta - Sampdoria, Cesena - Udinese.
CAGLIARI - VERONA
Cagliari - Verona sounds like a match for avoiding relegation and as we said several times, such matches in Italy usually end UNDER 2.5 because teams are really scared to concede goals,
but probably not in this case.
Verona is back with its 4-3-3, after 3 months of 3-5-2 with bad results.
Cagliari's game style is a 4-3-3 too and Sardinian team has collected 8 OVER 2.5 in the last 9 matches, while Verona's recent away trend says 6 OVER2.5 in 7 matches.
Moreover, Cagliari is the only team unable to keep its goal unbeaten in home matches among th main 5 European Leagues.
CAGLIARI: Brkic, Dessena, Rossettini, Capuano, Avelar,
Donsah, Conti, Ekdal, M’Poku, Cossu, Cop.
VERONA: Benussi, Pisano, Moras, Marquez, Brivio, Ionita, Tachtsidis, Hallfredsson, Jankovic, Toni, Christodoulopoulos.
ATALANTA - SAMPDORIA
Sampdoria hasn't won for the last 5 mathces played and that coincides with the loss of Gabbiadini, sold to Napoli.
Atalanta is a tough team when playing home and Sampdoria has collected 2 away losses in a row and has 3 players unavailable (Soriano, Obiang and mainly Eder, the topscorer with 8 goals in this season).
Baselli will play in advances position, right behind Pinilla... The young talented player as first scorer is very well paid (23.00).
POSSIBLE SCORE: 2-0
BASELLI FIRST SCORER (23.00 WilliamHill)
ATALANTA: Sportiello, Benalouane, Masiello, Stendardo,
Dramè, Emanuelson, Cigarini, Carmona, Gomez, Baselli, Pinilla.
SAMPDORIA: Viviano, De Silvestri, Silvestre, Romagnoli, Regini, Acquah, Palombo, Duncan, Correa, Okaka, Muriel.
CESENA - UDINESE
Cesena seems to be on shape. Indeed it stopped Milan and Juventus, drawing in its stadium, but has collected a negative record in this season: Cesena's goal has stayed unbeaten just once in the current season.
Udinese is not brilliant when playing away and especially his leader, Di Natale, only scores in "Friuli" Stadium.
Cesena has both central backs banned and last 6 home matches always ended OVER 2.5 .
POSSIBLE SCORE: 1-2
CESENA: Leali, Perico, Capelli, Krajnc, Renzetti, Carbonero, De Feudis, Mudingayi,
Brienza, Defrel, Djuric.
