It's the Coppa Italia: Atalanta and Cagliari face off

Perhaps a welcome break from league football as Atalanta & Cagliari face off to decide who makes it to next stage of the Coppa Italia. All the pre-match information is available here!

Best bookmaker betting odds:

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Serie A. That game, against Fiorentina, was also an away game. It's a tiring schedule for Cagliari.

It's time to recharge all electronic entertainment devices for Cagliari, who are travelling more than 900 kilometers to play this game.

Atalanta form and stats

Last season, Atalanta's Coppa Italia journey ended in the 8th finals.

16 points is a decent return from 8 Serie A games here at KKWing Stadium for Atalanta. The data says 5 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses. After failing to beat Hellas Verona here at KKWing Stadium, Atalanta has put together a very nice winning streak on their own turf with four wins in a row.

It's back home for Atalanta, who return with a good feeling about themselves after beating Benevento away with the result 4-1. Rafael Tolói, Josip Iličić, Duván Zapata and Luis Muriel found the net in that victory. Before that, Atalanta had a Serie A home game versus Parma which ended with a victory 3-0.

There's a new fixture coming up fairly quickly for Atalanta, as the Serie A home game vs Genoa is only three days away.

Atalanta are an "over 2,5 goals" team alone here at KKWing Stadium in their league games, having scored an impressive 22 goals in 8 matches. 10 goals have been conceded. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only -1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Cagliari form and stats

Cagliari's mission in Coppa Italia last season failed in the 8th finals.

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Cagliari so far with only 6 points returning home. The records show 1-3-4 (win-draw-lose). Cagliari are desperate to end a ten-game winless run, as they haven't won a game since the Sampdoria fixture. With two straight losses from their last two away games, Cagliari are hoping that it's time for some travel points again.

Cagliari are travelling again after losing away to Fiorentina in their previous match (0-1). A 1-2 loss hosting Benevento before that.

As mentioned above, the bookmakers do not believe the away team will get anything from this match. Checking Cagliari's match history for similar games we find six matches. The home team won five of these as expected, four of them by at least two goals. Cagliari managed zero draws and one surprise win.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Milan in just four days.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Cagliari have scored 11 goals in 8 league games away. For Cagliari, more than two goals on average per game end up in their own net. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only -1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.

Head 2 Head

Numbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: five wins for Atalanta, zero draws and five wins for Cagliari. Over 2,5 goals: three times; under 2,5 goals: seven games.
