Juventus is welcoming Cagliari to Allianz Stadium in round 8 in the Italian Serie A.
Juventus is still undefeated in Serie A this season, but they have 4 draws already. With 13 points, 15 scored goals, and only 6 conceded goals, Juventus is in 5th place in the Serie A standings. Ronaldo is the leading goalscorer for Juventus with 6 goals, while Morata and Kulusevski have added 2 goals each. Chiesa and Morata have added 2 assists each. Sandro, Ramsey, Chiesa, Chiellini, and Bonucci are all injured, and they will miss this game for Juventus. Juventus was playing against Lazio on the road in their last Serie A game, and they have had 46% of ball possession in that game, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Juventus was leading from the 15th minute of the game, but they weren’t able to hold all the attacks from Lazio, and they have conceded a goal in the 95th minute of the game. The final score of this match was 1-1. Juventus will be playing in the Champions League next week, and with a win, they will most likely secure their spot in the next stage. The defense is currently Juventus’ biggest problem as a lot of their defenders are injured, but Juventus does have a good offense which allows them to make a mistake on the defensive end every now and then.
Cagliari is having a solid season, and they are in 11th place with 10 points, 14 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals so far this season. Cagliari’s offense is working well, but their defense is in terrible shape. Simeone and Pedro have each scored 5 goals for Cagliari this season, while Pedro and Zappa each added 2 assists. Pinna, Zito, Ceppitelli, Farago, Lykogiannis, and Tripaldelli are all injured for Cagliari. In their last Serie A match, Cagliari was hosting Sampdoria, and they were the better team in that game with 55% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. This was probably the best game of the season for Cagliari, and they have deservedly won this game 2-0. Cagliari is the defensive team, at least they are trying to be but it’s not working out for them. The good news for Cagliari is that their offense is good enough to compensate for bad defense, at least for now. I don’t think Cagliari will have any problems staying outside the relegation zone, but for them to try and reach the Europa League, their defense will need to be a lot better a lot.
When playing at home, Juventus has not lost to Cagliari in their last 11 games, and they are still undefeated this season. Cagliari is not a bad team, and Juventus certainly has more quality, but they also have a lot of important injuries. I will pick something on goal here.
