Cagliari and Fiorentina face off, in a match for the 12 th round of the Serie A TIM. The recent head ‑ to ‑ head history favors the away team, which has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the last 6 matches. The last head ‑ to ‑ head between these two teams was played on 15‑03‑2019, and ended in a (2‑1) win by Cagliari. The home advantage may play an important role in this match, since Fiorentina presents significant differences between home and away results.
The home team is currently in the 6 th position of the league, with 21 points won, after 6 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against Bologna by (3‑2). In the last match, they won in an away match against Atalanta, by (0‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since they have a record of 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in the last 30 matches, with 19 goals scored and 19 conceded, against 8 wins , 3 draws and 4 losses at home, with 24 goals scored and 17 conceded. In the last 6 home league matches Cagliari has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 18 possible.
In this competition, they haven't lost in 9 matches. Defensive consistency hasn't been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition.
Cagliari comes for this match after a 0-2 win against Atalanta, adding to the excellent series of nine consecutive unbeaten matches in the Italian championship: the goals of the team were scored by Mario Pasalic and Oliva. In this round against Fiorentina, we believe that coach Roland Maran favors a low block, defending organized and going into attack through quick transitions. Offensive João Pedro is Cagliari's top scorer with 5 goals. For this match, they will be without Pavoletti, Cragno, Birsa and Ceppitelli, who are all injured.
After 4 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses, the visiting team is in the 8th position, having won 16 points. In the last match, they tied in a home match against Parma, by (1‑1), after in the previous match they have won (1‑2) an away match against Sassuolo. This is a home team, which is strongest when playing with the support of their fans, as they have a record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in the last 30 matches, with 19 goals scored and 23 conceded. Already at home, they have won 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses, with 19 goals scored and 15 conceded. In the last 5 away league matches Fiorentina has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, having won 8 points out of 15 possible.
For this competition, they have not lost any of the last 4 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn't been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1.
Fiorentina comes for this match after a draw by 1-1 against Parma, adding the second straight match without a win in this Italian championship: the only goal of the team was scored by Castrovilli. Despite playing away from home, coach Vincenzo Montella should benefit from ball circulation and organized attacks, especially through the right wing: Federico Chiesa is very competent in driving the ball into the offense. Castrovilli, Pulgar and Milenkovic are Fiorentina's top scorers with 3 goals each. Out of this game is Franck Ribéry, a suspended player.
