Our football match prediction:
Despite being regarded as underdogs in Sunday’s football match against Inter, Sassuolo did well to beat the Nerazzurri at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The Neroverdi produced one of their best performances of the season, with the team extending their unbeaten run in the league to six games. Sassuolo are likely to finish the season in the bottom half of the standings, but they have been in a fine form of late. Eusebio Di Francesco’s men play host to Cagliari on Matchday 37 and seeing that the Rossoblu’s displays on the road leave a lot to be desired, we predict that the hosts will have a reason for celebration this weekend. Cagliari outplayed Empoli at home at the weekend, but they are unlikely to grab something from Sunday’s game against the high-flying Neroverdi. You should bear in mind that the Rossoblu were beaten by the likes of Udinese and Napoli in previous two away matches.
Highligted Player (Diego Falcinelli):
Diego Falcinelli is an Italian footballer who plays for Sassuolo as a striker. He joined the Neroverdi in 2009, but spent several seasons on loan at Foligno, Juve Stabia, Lanciano and Perugia. Falcinelli score 14 goals in 38 league appearances for Perugia and, as a result, Sasuolo chiefs wanted his back. The 186-cm-tall attacker returned to the club in 2015 and he scored two goals in 26 appearances for the Neroverdi in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign. Falcinelli was born in Marsciano, Italy on 26 June, 1991 and he has yet to make his debut for the Italy national team. However, it has to be noted that he received a call-up to Italy U19 team. The left-footed striker, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, has a contract with Sassuolo which expires on 30 June, 2020. Falcinelli wears number nine on his shirt and he is represented by PB sports management.
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.
