Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 7-0 win over Torino, Milan will be aiming to extend their winning run to four games when they take on Cagliari in the Serie A round 37. The Rossoneri are determined to book their place in the Champions League, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Sardinians. Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains in the recovery room, and, in his absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Croatia international Ante Rebic, who scored a hat-trick in the midweek triumph.
The good news for the hosts is that Alexis Saelemaekers returns from suspension. The Rossoblu, on the other hand, have yet to secure the Serie A survival, but seeing that they are five points clear of the relegation zone, the hosts want this win more than the visitors. All Sottil, Walukiewicz, Calabresi, Perreiro, and Rog are sidelined with injuries, while Gaston Pereiro has been tested positive for coronavirus.
