Match Preview

  • Bologna enter this clash winless in three Serie A (SA) home fixtures (D1, L2). Those two losses remain Bologna’s only SA home games won/lost not to produce a one-goal margin, and four of those seven such games have seen the deciding goal arrive beyond the 80th minute.
  • Three-quarters (21) of Bologna’s 28 SA matches have seen both teams score, with a significant 29.42% (25) of match goals scored/conceded arriving beyond the 70th minute. History implies that this will work in Bologna’s favour, as they have won five of the last six SA H2Hs held here (W5, D1).
  • After a 4-2 win in the last round, to notch their first back-to-back SA wins since November, Cagliari have now returned over 3.5 total match goals in 42.86% (12) of their 28 games. Including three of their last four SA games, Cagliari have opened the scoring in 16 of 28 games, with eight arriving between the 16th-30th minutes of play.
  • Each of Cagliari’s last three SA away games (W1, L2) have been decided by a single-goal margin. Cagliari have landed six ‘score draws’ in their last 12 SA road trips, but scoring first could be crucial all the same, as Cagliari are unbeaten on the road when doing so in this league campaign (W4, D4).
  • Players to watch: Riccardo Orsolini has netted Bologna’s first goal in five of his last six goalscoring SA games. Meanwhile, João Pedro has been Cagliari’s last scorer in four of the last five SA games to see him score.
  • Stat attack: Before the start of this league round, Bologna (84) had collected the highest number of SA yellow cards.
  • Eleven of Bologna’s 14 SA home matches have witnessed both teams score.
  • Cagliari have conceded 26.32% (five) of their 19 SA away ‘goals against’ beyond the 80th minute.
