Teams Comparison.

Perhaps surprisingly, Roma and Cagliari are divided by just one point after six rounds of Serie A (SA) action. But with Roma winning the last four H2Hs held here, while keeping a clean sheet even in the last five (D1), Cagliari will do well to even maintain that points gap. At all venues the ‘Giallorossi’ haven’t lost to Cagliari in ten consecutive SA meetings now (W7, D3), leading at half-time in five of their wins. Yet Roma’s three SA games at home this season (W1, D1, L1) have seen them lead only once, despite scoring six of their seven goals before the break.

The visitors have found the net in five of their six SA matches this season (W3, D1, L2), including the last five in a row – a feat they achieved just once last season. Going back to May, Cagliari have now scored in ten of their last 11 competitive fixtures (W4, D2, L5). Cagliari have won their both away league games this season, opening the scoring and winning one half ‘to nil’ each time. Last season though, they won just two league road trips and failed to score on nine occasions (47.37%). One interesting sidenote, Cagliari haven’t scored a goal on their league travels in the opening 15 minutes in their last 30 away games!

Quick Facts.

  • Lucas Castro has scored Cagliari’s only goal in the last two games, both as the first goalscorer.
  • Edin Džeko scored a game-winning goal in last two SA games for Roma, with both arriving in the second half.
  • There have been over 5.5 total match goals in two of Roma’s three SA home games this season.
  • Both teams found the net only once in the last five league H2Hs.
  • Eleven (73.33%) of the 15 goals scored in Cagliari’s league games this season arrived after the break.
