With only one win in their last five league games, Cagliari will be looking to put in a shift in their performance when they host the league leaders Juventus at the Sant’Elia in the 24th round of the Italian Serie A.
Difficutlt Game For The Hosts
The hosts have won only one game in their last five league fixtures. The team lacks sharpness and consistency. They should change that in order to get a result against the in-form Juventus. Cagliari have collected a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Atalanta away from home where they lost 2-0.
Cagliari are currently sitting in the 14th place in the league table. They have 27 points from 8 wins, 3 draws and 12 losses. The team scored 32 goals and conceded 48 since the start of the season.
Cagliari will be without three attacking players since João Pedro picked up a suspension and added himself to the list of absentees. For this reason coach Massimo Rastelli could even think of switching to a 4-4-1-1 formation.
Juventus To Make It Five Wins In A Row
The visitors have been in top form in recent weeks. The team have won their last four games straight in Serie A. Juventus have collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Crotone away from home where they won 2-0.
Juventus are currently sitting in the 1st place in the league table. They have 57 points from 19 wins, 0 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 47 goals and conceded 16 since the start of the season.
The 4-2-3-1 formation seems to be Juventus’ best formation and Max Allegri is doing a great job of rotating his players while performances remain good. Some more changes are expected to the team that beat Crotone 2-0 in midweek, but Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain are undroppable at the moment.
Head To Head
Juventus have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 4-0 to Juventus in the reverse fixture.
