Cagliari vs Parma Match Preview – Last chance saloon

by | May 9, 2021 11:23

This could be one of the biggest relegation battles of the season, because the loser may well say goodbye to hope of avoiding the drop, and they are both Serie A regulars.

There are just two points separating these sides going into the match, with Cagliari on 22 points and Parma 20. Both could well end up going down, as Torino are five in front with a game in hand, to be played against Lazio.

Looking at the squads, it seems impossible that either of them should be in this position, but changes of management, confusion over transfer strategy and damaging injuries left them fighting for survival.
