Our football match prediction:
Cagliari and Sassuolo, the two teams who have been totally out of form of late, face each other at Stadio Sant’Elia on Thursday evening. Both sides aim to escape the danger zone, meaning that a lively contest appears on the cards. Cagliari were hammered by Napoli (0-5) in their last home game in the league, but the Rossobly have already recorded five wins in front of home fans this term and that is the main reason why we predict the Icelanders will pick up all three points from Thursday’s football match. Sassuolo failed to make it to the Europa League last 32 and they head into the game against Cagliari following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Fiorentina and Inter. The Neroverdi are on an eight-match winless run on the road and, taking everything into account, they are likely to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in Cagliari the hosts emerged triumphant.
