Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Cagliari and Monza square off against each other at Unipol Domus in Sunday’s matinee. The Sardinians aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Juventus and you should know that they are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground. Even though all Gaetano Oristanio, Alessandro Di Pardo, Nahitan Nandez, and Marko Rog remain in the recovery room, home win should be considered as the Rossoblu have been producing fine performances at home of late.
The Biancorossi, on the other hand, aim to extend their unbeaten run to four games, but home win should be considered as Cagliari are desperate to escape the relegation zone. Monza midfielder Dario Gomez misses out through suspension, while all Lorenzo Colombo, Armando Izzo, Gianluca Caprari, and Marco D’Alessandro remain on the sidelines with injuries. In their last meeting in Sardinia Cagliari defeated Monza 2-1 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Team (Cagliari):
Cagliari are a professional football club based in Cagliari, Sardinia. I Rossoblu (The Red and Blues) compete in Italian Serie A and the club’s biggest success came in 1970, when they won the national championship.
Cagliari finished the season in top position in the standings, four points clear of Juventus and it has to be noted that Luigi Riva led Cagliari to their first Serie A trophy.
I Rossoblu welcome their rivals at Stadio Sant’Elia and the capacity of the stadium is 16,000. In the 1993/1994 season Cagliari made it to the UEFA Cup semis, with the team suffering a loss to fellow Italian club Inter in the two-legged tie.
Giuseppe Pancaro helped Cagliari record a 3-2 win over Inter in the first leg, but I Rossoblu were hammered by the Nerazzurri in the second leg (3-0). Palermo are regarded as Cagliari’s main rivals and the two teams square off against each other in the Derby delle Isole.
