Genoa vs Cagliari prediction and betting tips - April 29, 2024

Tournament: Seria A
Location: Luigi Ferraris
Match date: 29.04.2024

In the 34th round of Serie A on April 29, 2024, Genoa will face Cagliari. The home team is trailing by more than 10 points from the European qualification zone and has a comfortable lead over the best of the bottom teams. While it wouldn't hurt the guests to gather a few points, they are not under immediate threat of relegation.

Key statistics and trends:

The most common result in Genoa is a 2-0 victory for the hosts (four times). Cagliari's last away win against this opponent was in 2014. Genoa has scored 34% of their goals between the 31st and 45th minutes, the best percentage in Serie A. Cagliari has scored 36% of their goals between the 76th and 90th minutes.

Genoa - form analysis: The club hasn't been playing entertaining football recently.

The "Grifoni" are difficult to criticize as they have long since solved their tournament tasks. Moreover, even after returning from Serie B and securing their place, Gilardino's charges are still fighting for points. They played a 0-0 draw against Juventus in Turin in March. They nearly repeated this in the last round against Lazio, but the latter scored from their only shot on target. There were also 1-1 draws against Fiorentina and a 2-1 away win against Verona. On the flip side, they lacked motivation against Frosinone, finishing 1-1 at home against the newcomer-outsider.

Cagliari - form analysis: The team has successfully moved away from the danger zone.

The "Islanders" returned to Serie A immediately after relegation, finishing fifth through a tough playoff after just one year. They struggled at the start of this season but managed to improve under the experienced coach Ranieri. After four consecutive losses in January-February, they only lost once in 9 rounds, against Monza. They secured victories against Empoli, Salernitana, and Atalanta, and in the last two matches, they drew 2-2 against Inter and Juventus.
