Against All Odds: Pescara to get a result at quiet Cagliari

Things haven't been going too well for Massimo Ficcadenti

Newly promoted, Pescara, travel to Cagliari this afternoon in Italy's Serie A and the Betfair market suggests that they aren't going to take anything from the game. Paul Robinson has other ideas though...

"The Dolphins picked up a point at Bologna in their last away game and they will be full of confidence going into this one after a late Vladimir Weiss winner saw off Palermo on Wednesday night."

Lay Cagliari against Pescara @ 1.768/11

Our good run continued yesterday as Kilmarnock hammered Hearts by three goals to one, meaning it's now 13 winners from the last 16 selections.

Cagliari have made a poor start to their season and are down in 19th with just two points from their opening five fixtures. Manager, Massimo Ficcadenti, is having his second spell in charge of the side and it would appear that he's not getting anything more from his players than he did the first time around.

A defeat to Genoa was followed up with a pair of draws, but it's now two losses in a row for them, although the one against Roma was awarded to the away side after the club broke Italian Football Federation rules by allowing fans into the ground.

Cagliari will be allowed a small number of home support into the stadium today, but they will be without suspended captain, Daniele Conti, and the injured, Andrea Cossu.

Pescara have made a solid start to life in the top flight; four points from five games after losing their opening three. After conceding a trio of goals in each of their first three, Giovanni Stroppa, has tightened up his backline and results have improved.

The Dolphins picked up a point at Bologna in their last away game and they will be full of confidence going into this one after a late Vladimir Weiss winner saw off Palermo on Wednesday night.

I'd have Cagliari as marginal favourites for this clash, but I certainly wouldn't have them as odds-on, so with their price trading around the 1.768/11 mark I have to make them my lay of the day.
