Our prediction for this Serie B match:
High-flying Frosinone will look to extend their winning run to seven games when they face Cagliari in the Serie B derby. The Canarini are eager to retain top position in the standings, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Forward Roberto Insigne, who scored the winner as a substitute against Ascoli, is pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home side.
The Sardinians, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last three league fixtures, but a win over Frosinone could see them climb to the playoffs berth. Since Cagliari will go for a win in Sunday’s encounter as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. There are no fresh selection worries in the away team.

Highlighted Team (Cagliari):
Cagliari are a professional football club based in Cagliari, Sardinia. I Rossoblu (The Red and Blues) compete in Italian Serie A and the club’s biggest success came in 1970, when they won the national championship.
Cagliari finished the season in top position in the standings, four points clear of Juventus and it has to be noted that Luigi Riva led Cagliari to their first Serie A trophy.
I Rossoblu welcome their rivals at Stadio Sant’Elia and the capacity of the stadium is 16,000. In the 1993/1994 season Cagliari made it to the UEFA Cup semis, with the team suffering a loss to fellow Italian club Inter in the two-legged tie.
Giuseppe Pancaro helped Cagliari record a 3-2 win over Inter in the first leg, but I Rossoblu were hammered by the Nerazzurri in the second leg (3-0). Palermo are regarded as Cagliari’s main rivals and the two teams square off against each other in the Derby delle Isole.
