Cagliari vs Juventus

Juventus continue their quest to secure Champions League football for next season on Friday night (19:45 on TNT Sports 1) when they travel to Cagliari.

The hosts caught the eye last time out as they held the league leaders Inter Milan to a 2-2 draw, while Juve come into this game off the back of a goalless stalemate with Torino. Below you can find our Cagliari vs Juventus prediction, as well as team news and match odds.

Cagliari vs Juventus Prediction

  • Double Chance - Cagliari Win or Draw @ 21/20
  • Dusan Vlahovic to score anytime @ 11/8

Team News

Claudio Ranieri may have to do without the services of Gaetano Oristanio, Andrea Petagna, Marco Mancosu and Leonardo Pavoletti, who are all expected to miss out on Friday due to injury.

As for the visitors, Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli are still suspended and remain unavailable for Massimiliano Allegri's side, while Moise Kean and Arkadiusz Milik will face late fitness tests ahead of Friday's encounter.

Match Odds

The home side are 4/1 - or a theoretical chance of 20% - to claim a rare victory against their opponents on Friday, while Juventus are heavily favoured for this contest at 8/11 - or a 57.9% chance.

The draw can be backed at 13/5, while both teams to score is also odds-on at 8/11.

Juventus were 2-1 winners in the reverse fixture against Ranieri's side back in November, and a repeat of that scoreline is available at 7/1.

Double Chance - Cagliari Win or Draw @ 21/20

Despite Cagliari heading into Friday's game having lost 12 of the previous 13 matches against Juventus in Serie A, this week's encounter represents their best opportunity of getting some joy against Allegri's men.

The hosts have lost just one of their last eight matches and, as mentioned above, earned a respectable point at the San Siro against the league leaders last time out.

Juve were held to a 0-0 draw by midtable Torino in the Turin derby last weekend, and the visitors have failed to win any of their last five away matches, so backing double chance - Cagliari win or draw looks a reasonable punt here.

Cagliari win or draw - double chance at 21-20

Dusan Vlahovic to score anytime @ 11/8

Despite Juventus' recent woes away from home, the Serbian still represents their best chance of getting on the scoresheet, as the 24-year-old has netted 16 goals in 30 appearances across all competitions for The Old Lady so far this term.

Vlahovic tends to carry the offensive burden for Juventus, as nobody else in the squad has reached double figures in terms of scoring output - the closest is Federico Chiesa with eight.

He spurned the best chances in Juve's goalless draw with Torino, so he'll be desperate to make amends here.
