Atalanta v Cagliari Betting Tips and Predictions

Atalanta v Cagliari will be a great one to watch in the third round of Italian Serie A. It seems that Atalanta is having a great run of results and should continue to score many goals in upcoming games.

Our Prediction For This Game:

Atalanta is playing very well, whilst Cagliari seems to be on bad form at the moment. Atalanta is scoring an impressive number of goals this season, whilst Cagliari is conceding too many goals. As a result, the odds on Atalanta to win are too low and have kept dropping since the start of this week; therefore, we choose to bet on Atalanta scoring two or more goals, which 888sport values at 1.60.

Atalanta:

Atalanta is the clear favorite in this match. The squad has played really well and out of seven official games this season, only once have they not scored two or more goals; when friendlies are included, they scored twice or more in 11 out of 12 games. In the previous round the team drew 3-3 away at Roma in a visually spectacular game.

Cagliari:

In first two rounds Cagliari have got only one point. It was in a 2-2 draw at home against Sassuolo, while they lost 2-0 away at Empoli. The team went through to the second round of the Italian Cup by winning 2-1 over second-tier side Palermo. Their defence is very bad at the moment and their run of games in which they concede goals should be continued.

Reasons For and Against The Tip:

– Atalanta may rest some key players because they played in the Europa League qualifications and had too many games in a short period of time
