Our football match prediction:
Lazio look unstoppable at the moment. Following a thrilling 6-1 win over Sassuolo the Biancocelesti shocked Juventus in Turin at the weekend, with the team extending their winning run in the Serie A to three games. The capital club have been impressive in the national championship of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Cagliari. Ciro Immobile, who scored a brace against Juve, will be the man to watch in the home team. Cagliari suffered a loss in each of their previous four league fixtures and they are unlikely to spoil Lazio’s party at Stadio Olimpico. Simone Inzaghi’s men have been scoring goals for fun of late and we predict that they will record a routine win over the Rossoblu in the “Eternal City”. You should bear in mind that Lazio are after their sixth consecutive win over Cagliari in the national championship.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Lukaku):
Jordan Lukaku is well known for his older brother Romelu Lukaku, who plays for Everton as a striker. Jordan began his senior career at Anderlecht, but he made no more than eight league appearances for the club. The left-footed full-back played for fellow Belgian outfit Oostende from 2013 to 2016 and at the end of the 2015/2016 season he moved to Italy. Jordan Lukaku signed a deal with Italian club Lazio for a fee of £5 million (plus £1 million in bonuses). His main position is left-back, but he is capable of playing as a left midfielder as well. Speaking of his international career, Jordan Lukaku made his Belgium debut against Andorra on 10 October, 2015. However, he has yet to find the net for the Belgian national team. Jordan was born in Antwerp on 25 July, 1994. His father Roger Lukaku was a professional footballer as well and played for the Zaire national team.
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.
