CAGLIARI v TERNANA – ITALY SERIE B
January 23 2016, Sant Ellia stadium, 15:00 GMT+0
Today Ternana will visit Sant Ellia stadium in hopes to win and get their 4th win in last 11 away matches, but that won’t be easy, especially when your opponent is undefeated at their home stadium this season and taking into account Ternana is missing their 2nd best scorer (Ceravolo) the hunt for points at Cagliary home pitch becomes much harder. Other than Ceravolo Valjent, Dianda, Lo Porto and Palumbo will all miss the upcoming match.
Ternaria has a poor home record, with only 3 wins in 11 matches. I must mention Trenaria has recorded a surprising win against Pescara, which is a top 3 team in Serie B, but looking at the match it all becomes clear why the match ended in Trenaria’s favor, as Pescara defender Fornasier received a red card in 35′ because of that Pescara had to play with only 10 men and received a late goal in 88′.
The home team Cagliari has dropped from a top spot when they lost against Crotone (3:1) and are currently 2 points behind them in the league table. Cagliari is not happy loosing a top spot, so they will surely want to get their 3 points today and possibly 1st spot in the league if Crotone fails to win against Novara, which arguably can happen as Novara can be lethal when it comes to defending their home stadium.
The Sardinians are the best team when it comes to playing at home, where they have not yet suffered a loss this season and it does not look like they will in the near future. The home team will be missing some players coming into today’s match; Capuano suffered an injury, whereas Dessena is still sidelined. Balzano, Krajnc and Murru are all out of this match due to a suspension. On the bright side one of the best Cagliari scorers Melchiorri is ready to step back on the pitch today, aswell as defender Ceppitelli.
In conclusion this match is a great opportunity for Cagliari to climb back on top of the league and we can expect them to give their best to do so.
Prediction: Cagliari -1
Odds: 2.02 Pinancle
