Our football match prediction:
Sunday’s football game at Sardegna Arena pits together Calgiari and Genoa. Cagliari aim to put an end to their three-match losing run in the Serie A, whilst Genoa are eyeing their first win of the season. Massimo Rastelli’s men were not capable of matching Napoli at Stadio San Paolo in their last league fixture, but they are definitely capable of matching the Rossoblu in front of home fans. Cagliari are tough to beat at home and despite the fact that they suffered back-to-back losses to the likes of Sassuolo and Chievo in previous two home games in the Serie A, we are tempted to put our money on the Sardegna Arena outfit. Genoa made a very slow start to the season and considering that they failed to score in previous two league games, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed from the trip to Sardinia.
