Our football match prediction:
Cagliari did not kick off the new Serie A campaign in style, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to the likes of Juventus and Milan at the start of the season, but they quickly return to winning ways. The Rossoblu recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Crotone on Matchday 3 and they head into Wednesday’s football game against Sassuolo following a 2-0 victory at SPAL. Cagliari are tough to beat at home and seeing that a win over Sassuolo would see them climb to the top half of the standings, we are tempted to put our money on Massimo Rastelli’s men. The Neroverdi failed to upset star-studded Juventus at the weekend, with the team suffering their third consecutive defeat in the Serie A and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Cagliari’s party at Sardegna Arena. In their last meeting in the Italian top flight Sassuolo outclassed Cagliari 6-2, meaning that the islanders are hungry for revenge.
