Match Date: 23 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Renato Della`Ara


Bologna is still licking its wounds from a disappointing loss to the 9-man Livorno. Inevitably, the unfortunate event let them sink into the relegation zone, thus, making their survival more difficult than expected.


Although, their upcoming opponent, Cagliari, has only won once against them in their previous matches, it is a bit hard to make the Rossoblu as the sports betting favorite of the match.


Unable to snatch a single win in their last 6 matches, they were also unable to score in 5 of their last 7 matches at home. Theirs situation readily makes them a vulnerable target in their upcoming encounter.


As for Cagliari, they had their taste of defeat too when they fought against Lazio. A missed penalty by Mauricio Pinilla prevented them from equalizing. It could have changed the course of the whole match, but such scenario did not materialize.


Cagliari, however, are still safe from the relegation zone. But they cannot be too complacent as any determined club could easily oust them from the 15th spot of the table. Likewise, they must be wary of their away form. So far, they were unable to win in their last 19 away matches.


Prediction: Cagliari

Equipped with a better rank, Cagliari elicits higher possibilities of winning the match. They are pegged as favorites to win at a profitable 3.20 at 12BET.
