AFTER picking another winner from Europe last weekend, Mark O'Haire (@MarkOHaire) has lined up an even-money shot from Serie A for Sunday.
Roma v Cagliari | Sunday 14.00
I’m in Italy for the first time this season for Sunday's clash between Roma and Cagliari. Anyone who saw the Romans take CSKA Moscow apart in midweek will know the capital club mean business again this season.
A raft of top-notch signings joined the club in the summer to join a squad that only lost five Serie A fixtures last season – and it’s no secret the points tally they accrued would have bagged them the title in five of the last league seasons.
The Wolves have picked up where they left off last season with two comfortable victories over Fiorentina and Empoli, both secured with clean sheets. But what’s more impressive is that the fact Roma have now been leading at half-time in the last 16 games they’ve won. Rudi Garcia’s men can repeat that trick this weekend when Cagliari visit the Olympic Stadium with a HT-FT bet at even-money with Bet365.
Cagliari are notoriously poor travellers. In fact, the islanders only collected 11 points on the road in 2013-14 and were beaten in nine of their trips to clubs sitting in 13th and above. They're unlikely to offer the hosts too much resistance with new coach Zdeněk Zeman still bedding into his new role.
