Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Spezia will be aiming to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Inter when they take on Cagliari in the Serie A round 28. The Bianconeri failed to win the previous five league fixtures, with the team dropping to 15th place in the standings. Since Spezia’s Serie A status could soon be in danger, we are positive that the hosts will go all guns blazing at Cagliari. All Mattiello, Krapikas, and Saponara are sidelined with injuries, while Provedel has been tested positive for coronavirus.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Juventus. The Sardinians have been having their ups and downs of late, but they are surely capable of holding Spezia to a draw behind closed doors. All Tramoni, Sottil, and Rog are out of contention through injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of the trip to Liguria.
Highlighted Player (Luca Mora):
Luca Mora began his senior career at Castellarano (2007-2009) and in 2009 he moved to fellow lower-league club Crociati Noceto. Two years later he signed for Pro Patria and after making 32 appearances in the league for the club, Mora joined Alessandria.
The Italian midfielder, who was born in Parma on May 10, 1988, quickly established himself as a first team regular at the club and you should know that he scored six goals in 86 appearances in the league for L’ Orso. In 2015 he moved to SPAL and he has been playing for the Biancazzurri ever since.
Luca Mora scored seven goals, while providing three assists for his team mates in 35 appearances for SPAL in the 2016/2017 season. Mora’s main position is central midfield, but he plays as a left midfielder as well. His contract with SPAL, who will compete in the Serie A in the 2017/2018 season, expires on June 30, 2020.
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.
