Our football match prediction:
Stadio Sant’Elia will host Sunday’s football game between Cagliari and Torino. Six points separate the two teams in the Serie A standings and a close encounter appears on the horizon. Cagliari did well to beat Palermo in Sicilia at the weekend and thanks to the triumph they almost secured yet another elite division survival. The Rossoblu are tough to beat at home and we predict that they will grab something from Sunday’s game against Torino, who often struggle on the road. Il Toro are on a three-game winless run in the league ahead of the trip to Sardinia and, taking everything into account, share of spoils would suit Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops. You should bear in mind that Torino came from two goals behind to play out a draw with Udinese on Matchday 30. Andrea Belotti found the net in the 2-2 draw with the Zebrette and he will be the man to watch in the away team.
