Our football match prediction:
Genoa will be looking to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Serie A when they square off against Cagliari at Stadio Sant’Elia in the opening match of Sunday’s program. Ivan Juric’s men are desperate to get back on course, but beating Cagliari on the road is easier said than done. Massimo Rastelli’s charges are eyeing their seventh home win of the season and you should know that they scored 2+ goals in eight of their previous nine home fixtures in the national championship. Cagliari were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Milan at Stadio San Siro at the weekend, but Colombian attacker Carlos Bacca eventually scored a late winner for the Rossoneri. Anyhow, Massimo Rastelli’s team have been in a much better form of late than Genoa and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football match at Stadio Sant’Elia.
