Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Cagliari and Venezia take on each other at Sardegna Arena in the opening match of the Serie A day 7. The Rossoblu aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Napoli, with the team still eyeing their first win of the season. The Sardinians are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. All Dalbert, Rog, and Ceter are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Venezia, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Torino. The newcomers aim to escape the relegation zone, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we predict that Paolo Zanetti’s troops are going to return to Venice empty-handed. All Haps, Vacca, Lezzerini, and Sigurdsson are out of contention for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Diego Godin):
Diego Godin is considered one of the best defenders in the history of Uruguayan football. The Atletico Madrid centre back played for Cerro and Nacional in the Uruguayan national championship between 2003 and 2007 and in August, 2017 he signed a deal with La Liga side Villarreal.
Godin made 91 league appearances for the Yellow Submarine and on 4 August he made probably the best decision of his career as he signed a contract with Atletico Madrid. The Uruguayan defender won the 2013/2014 La Liga trophy with los Rojiblancos, while making it to the Champions League final on two occasions (2014, 2016). He won the Europa League trophy in the 2011/2012 season with Atletico Madrid as well.
Speaking of his international career, Godin clinched the 2011 Copa America trophy with Uruguay. Despite playing as a centre back, Diego Godin often scores after set pieces and you should have in mind that he scored eight goals for Diego Simeone’s team in the 2013/2014 season (all competitions).
