Match Preview

Cagliari have never lost to Spal in a Serie A (SA) home match (W3, D1), keeping three clean sheets along the way, and another positive result will help move them further from the bottom three.
Ahead of this round only six points separate the teams from 12th to 18th, as Cagliari look to extend their run of three wins in five SA games (W3, L2). The hosts have scored only 28 SA goals this season, but nearly a third of those (nine) have arrived in their last seven matches.
Home form has been Cagliari’s best bet, with the Sardinian outfit picking up 72.73% of their SA point haul at home. Considering their last two home wins have come against top-ten opposition, home fans can be confident here.
Spal have picked up three consecutive SA victories, pushing them five points above the relegation zone. They have scored the joint-third lowest number of SA goals (27), although they have managed to score in ten of their last 12 SA games.
However with only four wins in their 15 SA trips (W4, D2, L9), Spal are yet to win consecutive away league matches this campaign. In fact, they haven’t won two SA away games in a row over the last two seasons.
Players to watchLeonardo Pavoletti (CAG) has scored eight of his ten SA goals in home fixtures, while Andrea Petagna (SPA) has netted five goals in his last seven SA away games.
Stat attack: Cagliari have conceded 40% of their SA home goals (six of 15) after the 75th minute.
There have been over 2.5 match goals in 13 of Cagliari’s 30 SA games.
Cagliari have failed to score in 13 of their 30 SA games.
Spal have scored first in seven of their 15 SA away fixtures, but went on lose three of those (W3, D1, L3).
