Cagliari’s Visit to Spark Sampdoria Back to Winning Ways

February 22, 2019


Sampdoria v Cagliari – 24th February – 11:30 BST

Sampdoria has lost three Italian Serie A matches on the spin but it is very attractively priced to return to winning ways when it entertains lower ranked Cagliari on Sunday.

Three Italian Serie A defeats in a row would be a concern for any team but, while Sampdoria’s recent run includes a 0-1 home loss to Frosinone – and, according to expected goals data, it was not an undeserved result – Samp have tackled away trips to Napoli and Internazionale as well. Twenty-four rounds into the Italian Serie A season and one is confident one has a good handle on each of the 20 sides and, consequently, one is going to place one’s faith in Sampdoria being much better than Cagliari when both teams perform at their best. According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Sampdoria enjoys a 14-2-3 lead over Cagliari, including progressive counts of 4-0-0, 6-0-1 and 9-0-3. September’s reverse Italian Serie A fixture ended in a 1-1 draw so that results favours Sampdoria, which is another tick for Samp, who are not much below even money.

Karol Linetty is suspended for Sampdoria, who has lost only two of its last 19 home games against Cagliari across all competitions. Cagliari is missing more players than its Sunday opponent, including Joao Pedro because of his ban. Cagliari has been losing at both half time and full time of its last four Italian Serie A away matches and just once have the Red and Blues won on the road in the division.

Roma v Frosinone – 23rd February – 19:30 BST

TOP TIP! – Roma to beat Frosinone @ 1.51

Roma romped to a 4-0 Italian Serie A home victory over Frosinone when the teams clashed in September and one is backing the Yellow and Reds to do the business when they travel to face the relegation candidate on Saturday at 1.51  with 188Bet.

Frosinone has not won an Italian Serie A home game this season and, remarkably, it has failed to score a goal in its 10 league matches versus the division’s top seven sides, losing nine of those games. According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Roma holds a 15-1-3 edge over Frosinone, including progressive counts of 3-0-0 and 13-1-0. Roma has won each of its last three matches against Frosinone across all tournaments and one thinks the Yellow and Reds will post another success this weekend.

Juventus v Bologna – 24th February – 14:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Juventus to beat Bologna @ 1.50

Italian Serie A collateral form data does not get much more one-sided than that pertaining to Sunday’s game between Bologna and Juventus at 1.50  with Betway. According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Juventus boasts a 16-3-0 lead over Bologna, including progressive counts of 4-0-0 and 10-1-0, plus a 2-0 home triumph in September’s reverse fixture.

Emre Can, Sami Khedira and Juan Cuadrado are out for Juventus but the Old Lady’s squad has the depth to cover for their absences. Bologna’s problems are greater, though, especially in defence and they are missing for the visit of Italian Serie A’s champion outfit. One’s only concern about picking Juventus is its UEFA Champions League rescue mission against Atletico Madrid but one thinks the Old Lady will want to go into that clash with a win under their belt.


Milan 14-4-1

Torino 9-1-9

Frosinone 3-1-15

Sampdoria 14-2-3

Bologna 0-3-16

Chievo 4-2-13

Sassuolo 9-3-7

Parma 5-1-13

Fiorentina 5-2-12
