Cagliari vs Atalanta Bergamo / Coppa Italia – This is one of duels in the round of sixteen of Coppa Italia, which does not have a specific favourite.

Cagliari has celebrated in their mutual duel in Bergamo with 1-0.
Cagliari vs Atalanta Bergamo begins 14.01.2019 at 17:30 CET
Cagliari has spent the entire first part of the season in the lower part of the table and they had a series of seven matches without defeat, which ended with a triumph against Genoa. By the end of the year, they lost again against Udinese with 2-0, and it should be said that Cagliari has only celebrated once at home, and that was against Atalanta. In the Cup they eliminated Palermo and Chievo with identical result of 2-1, and they played in the changed compositions. That will also be the case now, with the proviso that they cannot count on Lykogiannis and Castra due to injuries.
Probable lineups Cagliari: Rafael – Pisacane, Romagna, Andreolli, Pajac – Dessena, Cigarini, Farago – Barella – Cerri, Farias
Atalanta has played badly at the beginning of the season, but they are looking much better now and they managed to get in the top of the table. They had a series of four triumphs in a row, and they were only defeated once in the previous five rounds. They have ended this year with one of their best performances this season when they defeated Sassuolo with 6-2. They are playing offensive football and we should point out that they are the most efficient team in Serie A with 39 goals scored. This is their first duel in the Cup and they will probably perform with a combined team, while Varnier, Ali Adnan and de Roon are all absent.
Probable lineups Atalanta Bergamo: Gollini – del Prato, Djimsiti, Masiello – Castagne, Pessina, Pasalic. Gosens – Ilicic, Barow – Tumminello
Cagliari vs Atalanta Bergamo PICK
Cagliari has only lost once at home and it speaks enough about how they are playing in front of their supporters, but it should also be noted that the guests from Bergamo are in a better shape and very efficient. That is why we expect both teams to score in this match.
