Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Atalanta will be looking to book their place in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals when they take on Cagliari at their Gewiss Stadium on Thursday evening. The Orobici have been scoring goals for fun of late, with the team rolling over the likes of Sassuolo (5-1), Parma (3-0), and Benevento (4-1) in the previous three league fixtures, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the Italian Cup clash.
Even though Papu Gomez is on the verge of leaving the club, we are tempted to put our money on the high-flying hosts. The Sardinians head into the match following a 1-0 loss to Fiorentina where Joao Pedro had a penalty saved on the stroke of half-time. Since Cagliari are not regarded as good travellers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Atalanta, who aim to go all the way in the Coppa Italia this season.
