Roma’s Quest for Continuity as They Face Bottom-Dwelling Cagliari

Key Stats
– Roma have won six of their last nine away matches against Cagliari.
– Cagliari have only earned two points from their first seven top-flight matches, their worst start ever.
– Romelu Lukaku has netted three times in his first five Serie A appearances for Roma, an impressive start only surpassed by a few legends.

The skies over Rome are slowly brightening up. After enduring the bitterness of equalling their poorest start since 2010, having been humiliated 4-1 by Genoa, Roma are now witnessing a renaissance. Two consecutive wins, one in Serie A and the other in the Europa League, have injected hope into Jose Mourinho’s camp. It’s worth noting that pivotal to this turnaround have been the efforts of Romelu Lukaku and Lorenzo Pellegrini, both of whom found the back of the net in these crucial encounters.

Currently, Roma are outpacing their city rivals, Lazio, in the league and have bagged maximum points in the Europa League Group G. Their journey ahead appears less daunting, as they gear up to face Cagliari, Serie A’s bottom dwellers. Despite the favourable fixture, Roma’s away form remains a concerning stat, having not won any of their last seven away fixtures. They’ll be eager to set this right and silence critics who suggest they’re only dominant at home.

The Underdogs: Cagliari’s Struggle

Despite their rich history and experienced gaffer, Claudio Ranieri, Cagliari are going through a rough patch. Still without a win since their promotion, their journey in Serie A this season has been nothing short of a nightmare. A series of losses against top sides like Atalanta, Milan, and Fiorentina, the latter being a 3-0 setback, highlights their struggle.

With just two points from seven outings, they have equalled their worst start in the top flight. Historically, teams with such poor starts, like Crotone in 2020 and Sampdoria the following year, have faced relegation. The task is cut out for Ranieri and his men to evade this ominous precedent.

Team News and Key Players

Roma’s captain, Lorenzo Pellegrini, who recently made the net ripple against Servette, may miss out due to a hip injury. The midfield dynamo might be joining the likes of Chris Smalling and Diego Llorente on the injury list. However, there’s a silver lining for Roma as Paulo Dybala, rested previously, is likely to return, accompanied by Leonardo Spinazzola and goalkeeper Rui Patricio. Upfront, Lukaku will be the focal point; his impressive start with three goals in five Serie A matches has only been surpassed by legends like Gabriel Batistuta.

On the other side, Cagliari’s concerns are further accentuated by potential unavailability of Zito Luvumbo. Andrea Petagna, who has scored three from the spot against Roma in previous league matches, might lead the line despite not being on the scoresheet this season.

Analysing the Expected Goals and Team Stats

Cagliari’s Expected Goals and Performance:

  • Serie A Form: LLDLLL
  • Avg. BettingTips4You Expert Rating: 6.67 (Ranked 20th)
  • Goals Scored/Conceded: 2/12
  • Ball Possession: 37.7%
  • Average Corners per Match: 3.6

Roma’s Expected Goals and Performance:

  • Serie A Form: LLWDLW
  • Avg. BettingTips4You Expert Rating: 6.97 (Ranked 5th)
  • Goals Scored/Conceded: 15/11
  • Ball Possession: 58.1%
  • Average Corners per Match: 5.9

Predictions for the Encounter:

  1. Match Outcome Prediction: Given Roma’s resurgent form and Cagliari’s struggles, a Roma win seems probable, especially considering Roma’s historical dominance over Cagliari.
  2. Correct Score Prediction: Based on the recent goal scoring exploits, a 2-0 victory in favour of Roma seems a logical estimate.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: Romelu Lukaku remains the likeliest candidate to find the net, given his consistent performances and scoring record for Roma.
  4. Corner Prediction: Based on the stats, Roma are expected to dominate corners. A total of 9 corners in the game, with Roma bagging the majority, appears reasonable.
