Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a routine 2-0 win over Frosinone, Roma will look to keep on climbing the standings when they take on Cagliari in the Serie A round 8. The Giallorossi quickly bounced back from a 4-1 loss to Genoa, with the team helping Jose Mourinho keep his job and the Romans are seen as favourites to beat Cagliari in Sardinia as well. The attacking partnership of Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala seem to be in a fine working order at the weekend and we predict that the duo will prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
The likes of Chris Smalling, Diego Llorente, Renato Sanchez, and Tammy Abraham are out of contention with injuries. The Rossoblu, on the other hand, are seen as one of the main candidates for relegation and given their three-game losing run in the Italian elite division, away win should definitely be considered. Both Gianluca Lapadula and Marko Rog are sidelined with injuries, while Jakub Jankto and Gaston Pereiro are major doubts.
