Cagliari vs Atalanta Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday, the last round of the Serie A will be on. As champion Juventus Torino has been stuck since last weekend. SSC Napoli and Roma have secured their participation in the Champions League. For the other international places, as well as for the league is still fighting on the last day. We are looking forward to the match between Cagliari Calcio, who are not yet secured, and Atalanta Bergamo, who still want to qualify directly for the group stage of the Europa League. The kick-off in the Sardegna Arena takes place at 6 pm.
For the Sardinians, it is still on the 38th matchday to the league. With 36 points they are currently in the sixteenth place and have only one point ahead of the two following teams SPAL and Crotone. The FC Crotone is thus in eighteenth on the first relegation place. Somewhat surprisingly, Cagliari Calcio got into this good position last weekend. Until then, they were still themselves on a relegation zone. But on Sunday they were then able to win 1-0 at Fiorentina. Goal scorer of the golden goal was striker Leonardo Pavoletti in the 37th minute. By this victory they have been able to outstrip the two teams ahead of them.
The victory was a very important victory for the team of the Uruguayan coach Luis Diego Lopez after a drought of four games with only one point. Cagliari now has a win in the home game against Atalanta Bergamo to help them out of the league. In a draw or defeat they must hope that the two teams behind them will not win their last game of the season. The home record of the team from the island of Sardinia is rather mixed. In the last three games in the domestic Sardegna Arena four points could be collected. Overall, they took eighteen points at home and won five games. Their top scorer is Pavoletti, who has scored eleven goals so far.
Atalanta Bergamo are currently in seventh place in the Serie A table. With this placement, they would qualify for qualifying for the Europa League group stage. The team from Lombardy is therefore one point behind AC Milan, who is in the direct Europa League place, and three points ahead of Fiorentina, who would run out of things as things stand. The special attraction is that these two teams meet directly on the last match day. By far the best goal difference of the three teams had Atalanta Bergamo.
The seventh place should therefore be able to be held in any case. In order to qualify directly for the group stage of the Europa League, they must hope for a slip-up of the Milanese and they must score themselves in Sardinia. In the home game last weekend, the team of Gian Piero Gasperini had the chance by a victory against AC Milan to overtake the opponent. It was enough but only to a 1-1 draw. From the 65th minute they had to play in a minority. Nevertheless, they succeeded in the 92nd minute, the equalizer. Atalanta Bergamo has been unbeaten for seven Serie A games. Best scorer in their ranks is the Slovenian Josip Ilicic, who has so far recorded eleven goals and eight assists in his account.
