Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Olimpico will host Sunday’s Serie A game between Lazio and Cagliari, the two teams who have always been playing high-scoring games. The Biancocelesti are on a five-game winning run in the Italian top flight, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Cagliari. The capital club impressed in a 3-1 win over Atalanta in Bergamo, and it is no wonder they are considered favourites to win Sunday’s game.
Patric is sidelined through suspension, while both Strakosha and Luiz Felipe are out of contention with injuries. The Sardinians, on the other hand, are not enjoying a season to remember. Cagliari have yet to record a win in 2021, and given their anything but good away record in the Italian elite division, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Simone Inzaghi’s troops. The likes of Luvumbo, Duncan, and Rog are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.

Davide Di Gennaro is an Italian footballer who was born in Milan on 16 June, 1988. The attacking midfielder played for his home-town club AC Milan during his youth career and he made one appearance for the Rossoneri in the Serie A.

The Italian footballer scored nine goals in 34 league appearances for the club in the 2012/2013 season and at the end of the season he joined Palermo. Davide di Gennaro signed a three-year deal with the Sicilian outfit, but he made no more than 14 league appearances for the club between 2013 and 2015.
On 8 September 2014 he was sent to Vicenza on loan. Finally, in the summer of 2015 he signed a contract with Cagliari. It has to be noted that Davide di Gennaro has 5 caps for Italy U21. The Cagliari midfielder is capable of playing as a left winger as well.
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.
