Cagliari – Atalanta

Cagliari hosts Atalanta in a game from the last 38th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s have a look at this match and see what’s going on.

 

For Cagliari this match is crucial. The Rossoblu are still not safe from relegation. Right now Cagliari are 16th in the league standings, but being just one point above the 18th Crotone and the relegation zone. This means that a negative result against Atalanta could send Cagliari to the Serie B.

 

Of course, Cagliari will hope that Napoli will do the job against Crotone. In this case, the result between Cagliari and Atalanta won’t matter. But it would be better if they do their job as well.

 

So far Cagliari have 36 points and a record of 10 wins, 6 draws and 21 losses. For sure this season was not successful for the Rossoblu. They are flirting with relegation more than they’d like to.

 

In their last five matches Cagliari won once against Fiorentina, made one draw and suffered three defeats. The win against Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi could be the one which is going to save Cagliari from relegation.

 

Atalanta are 7th in the Calcio with 60 points. They are just one point behind the 6th Milan, so for Atalanta this game is also very important. A win here could send them into the Top 6.

 

Atalanta have a record of 16 wins, 12 draws and 9 defeats. Last season Atalanta were doing better, but even now they remain a solid team to be reckoned with. In their last five matches Gian Piero Gasperini’s boys are unbeaten – three wins and two draws.

 

These are our thoughts about the Serie A game between Cagliari and Atalanta. The match is important for both teams and we expect to see a solid fight.
