A late goal gave Cagliari a shock victory over Napoli (1-0) last time out, and presented them with a third consecutive Serie A (SA) victory in the process, with each win seeing them score at least once in the last 15 minutes. The home side are favourites in this one, but the last time they won four SA games in a row was nearly seven years ago (Oct-Nov 2012). However, Cagliari have lost three of the last four H2Hs, conceding the opener in all four. The first goal could be crucial again here, especially as all of their SA matches this season have been won by the team that opened the scoring. Notably though, the opener has been scored in the first half just twice so far.
After a promising start, Hellas Verona have picked up just one point from their last three matches, whilst scoring only one goal. Their fixtures have been tight low-scoring affairs, with four of their five producing under 2.5 goals, which has also been the case in three of the previous five H2Hs. On the road, Verona have won only two of their last eight league games, both via a 1-0 scoreline. The visitors netted the winner in the final half-hour both times, and three of their last four away league goals have arriving during this period.
