Our football match prediction:
Napoli are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League qualifiers, but they are capable of securing automatic qualification for the elite competition as well. The Neapolitans sit in third place in the Serie A standings ahead of the visit of Cagliari and they are only one point behind second-placed Roma. Maurizio Sarri’s men are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Rossoblu and they will be looking to build on a hard-fought victory over Inter. Napoli are after their 12th home win of the season and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Matchday 35. Cagliari defeated rock-bottom Pescara (1-0) at the weekend, but they face an uphill task in Saturday’s football match against the Partenopei. Napoli have turned their Stadio San Paolo into a real fortress and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon.
