THE TEAM NEWS

CAGLIARI

  • Cagliari’s troubles in front of goal came to a head in their game with Sampdoria as they made it four matches without scoring and unlike their previous two where they had kept their opponents scoreless, they conceded three against Sampdoria.
  • Two first half goals for the hosts left Cagliari for a mountain to climb at the break and when Sampdoria struck again just eight minutes into the second half, that proved to be enough to really kill the game off.
  • They now come into this game with in-form Sassuolo as they look to end their winless run but they will be without the suspended Artur Ionita while Radja Nainggolan has collected a calf strain which is set to rule him out for the season.

SASSUOLO

  • Sassuolo have achieved some eye-catching results since Serie A got back underway and they did so again as they earned a valiant point from their game with league leaders Juventus, although they will fell they could have collected all three.
  • A slow start saw Juve take a two-goal lead within the opening 15 minutes but Sassuolo responded superbly as Filip Duricic pulled one back and they struck twice in the first 10 minutes of the second half thanks to efforts from Domenico Berardi and Francesco Caputo.
  • Despite overcoming their two-goal deficit to lead, Sassuolo could not keep hold of the lead as Juve levelled but they will still be content with that point, although they come into this clash without suspended trio Berardi, Mehdi Bouabia and Francesco Magnanelli.

THE PREDICTION

Sassuolo earned another strong point to maintain their impressive form in Serie A as they fought back from two goals down to earn a point with title-chasing Juventus. They are now unbeaten in their last seven and will be confident of improving that run as they head to Cagliari. The hosts have failed to win any of their last five and with Sassuolo performing to such a high standard, particularly in front of goal, the visitors should be able to earn the three points here.
