Napoli win at half-time and full-time

Napoli have had an extraordinary run when it comes to home matches. The team are unbeaten in the last eight matches at home. During this run, they have picked up a win at half-time and full-time in seven matches. Cagliari might be on a resurgent form, but they would struggle to match with the offensive threat offered by Napoli.

Both teams to score – yes

One of the primary reasons behind Cagliari getting out of the bottom three and in a position to avoid relegation would be the goals. The team has picked up three consecutive wins during which they have scored eight goals. Despite challenging for the top four, Napoli have kept only one clean sheet in the last six matches at home.

Total goals over 3.5

Napoli have been one of the top entertainers in the Italian Serie A this season. Despite being involved in a top four race, Gattuso is unlikely to change the style which has resulted in over 3.5 goals in three out of the last four home matches for Napoli. Even Cagliari have seen two out of the last three matches produce a high return.

Napoli vs Cagliari: Analysis + Team News


Napoli have been able to strengthen the position for a top four finish owing to a four-game unbeaten run. The home form has been crucial during this period with Napoli picking up points without any defeat the last eight matches. Gattuso will be delighted with his team getting goals from across the pitch. Even when many star players were rested, Napoli continued to perform at the highest level. David Ospina and Faouzi Ghoulam are unavailable for Gattuso this weekend.


Cagliari have been a remarkable story over the last few weeks with the team jumping outside the bottom three owing to 3 successive wins. Only a few weeks ago, it looked like the team might not escape relegation even after top performances. Yet, Leonardo Semplici has seen his team get out of the bottom three on goal difference. The survival story is not over yet and Cagliari still have to come up with top performances in the remainder of the season to be sure of safety. Gastón Pereiro, Marko Rog, and Riccardo Sottil are unavailable, while Răzvan Marin is suspended.
