Cagliari hosts Torino in round 23 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Friday, February 19th at Sardegna Arena (Cagliari)
Cagliari was able to make several unexpected transfers during the winter window. Naingollan returned, as he was not in demand from Antonio Conte in Inter. Rugani, who was once considered mega-talented, came from Juventus to reanimate his career. Finally, the Islanders signed a contract with the experienced Kwadwo Asamoah, who was a free agent. But at the same time, the management of the club does not dare to change the coach for some reason. Under Di Francesco, the team has not managed to win in Serie A since November 7th. In the last nine rounds, Cagliari gained only one point due to a draw with Sassuolo. And it was the only goal scored in the last five matches. Not surprisingly, Cagliari is in the relegation zone and fights for survival (only 18 points scored).

Torino became a draw specialist. The Bulls can neither lose nor win for already six games in a row. Moreover, the outcome of 9 of their last 11 meetings was peaceful. Gaining points in each game, Marco Giampaolo's charges were still able to gradually get out of the relegation zone. Sometimes they seemed to be able to achieve more - for example, with Fiorentina, which played out with nine men (but Belotti equalized only in the 88th minute). But losing 3:0 to Atalanta in Bergamo by the 21st minute, the Bulls managed to arrange a full-fledged “comeback” and gained one point. And Belotti got to a figure of 11 goals - not bad for a striker who plays in the team from the bottom of the standings. Taking into account his five assists, the striker was involved in exactly half of his club's goals (16 out of 32). It is hard to imagine what would have happened to the Bulls if Andrea had not been able to play due to injury, or if he had been sold in the winter.
Torino has not beaten Cagliari for five matches in a row, and both of the last matches even ended with victories of the Islanders. In October, Belotti's double did not help the Bulls either - Simeone Jr. scored the same amount, and the visitors' top scorer, Joao Pedro, scored another goal. Although Cagliari has become an unpleasant rival for Torino, now things can be diametrically different. Let's risk betting on the Bulls’ victory with a zero handicap.
Prediction for the match: Torino to win with 0.0 handicap
