Roma vs Cagliari

, KO: 19:45 Feb 5, 2024, Stadio Olimpico

Roma will be looking to maintain their resurgence under the new manager as they host Cagliari in a Monday night Serie A fixture. Cagliari have struggled in recent weeks and should be no match for a confident Roma side, who are expected to claim a comfortable win.

Roma appear to be fully in the new manager's bounce as they have won their two matches since appointing Danielle De Rossi. They triumphed 2-1 over Verona before claiming a similar result against Salernitana last time out.

Both results have now revived Roma’s European hopes as they are up to fifth on the standings. The capital club are also in with a chance for a Champions League place as they sit just one point behind fourth placed Atalanta.

Despite their slight issues this season, Roma have been near perfect at the Stadio Olimpico where they are unbeaten in their last 13 matches. They have picked 11 wins in that run but are without a clean sheet in the last three matches.

In contrast to Roma’s recent resurgence, Cagliari continue to struggle having picked up two wins from their 12 matches across all competitions. They have suffered seven defeats in that run and remain mired in the relegation zone.

Cagliari travel to the Stadio Olimpico off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Torino in their previous Seri4 A fixture. They fell two goals down at the break and despite pulling one back through Nicolas Viola late in the contest, could not complete the comeback.

One of the major problems for Cagliari is a poor record on their travels as they are yet to secure a single win away from home this season. Claudio Ranieri’s men have lost eight defeats in 11 matches on the road.

Roma are considered overwhelming favourites on the bookies with a home win priced at 12/25 by 10bet. An unlikely victory for Cagliari is valued at 13/2 by BetVictor while a draw is set at odds of 7/2 by William Hill.

Head to head

Roma have a 25-11 advantage with 14 draws from 50 previous matches against Cagliari. The capital club have won the last three meetings and claimed a 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in October.
