The Isolani face their last chance to avoid relegation ahead of Sunday evening’s Venezia vs. Cagliari predictions. The hosts are already guaranteed to drop down to Serie B despite a recent sharp uptake in form.
Venezia vs. Cagliari odds
1 – Cagliari to win – 3/4
2 – Over 3.5 goals scored– 19/10
3 – Both teams to score – 3/4
4 – Joao Pedro to score anytime – Evens
5 – A penalty in the match – 6/4
Two sides within the bottom three face off in the final game of the Serie A calendar on Sunday. The home side, Venezia are already doomed to relegation, however, Cagliari could potentially survive should they win and Salernitana lose.
The Rossoblu are without a win in their last four games, although put in a spirited performance against Inter at the weekend. With Walter Mazzarri gone, club legend Andrea Agostini has taken charge and will hope to leverage his reputation to bring some positivity to the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo.
Fortunately for the visitors they come up against a side in disarray with three first team members suspended for Sunday’s match including second top-scorer David Okereke. This, and the fact that they have little to play for should give Cagliari the vital boost needed to secure a vital seventh win of the season.
This having been said, Venezia have been playing with a new lease of life since Andrea Soncin took over. The Arancianeroverdi have won one and drawn one in their last two games and have seen Thomas Henry find his shooting boosts. With the pressure off the Frenchman has bagged two in his last four.
Both sides have struggled defensively this season with the third and fourth worst records on the league. Furthermore, given that only a win will do for Cagliari, fans may be in for an open match this weekend. A bet on both teams to score could well pay off, as would a bet on over 3.5 goals scored in the fixture.
If anyone is to score at the Pier Luigi Penzo it is likely to be Joao Pedro, with the Cagliari man doing his utmost to drag the team to safety. The forward has come off the boil recently without a goal in his last two games but remains our tip to score this weekend.
Finally, with emotions running high and with Venezia at the bottom of the Serie A fair-play table, it would come as no surprise to see a penalty for either side on Sunday evening.
