Team News

Cagliari
Genoa
  • With every forward available, Massimo Rastelli will have to leave at least one out. Marco Sau is the favourite to start on the bench.
  • Diego Farias and Leonardo Pavoletti will play in attack, supported by João Pedro, as a result.
  • Ivan Juric will have three players back from suspension here.
  • Armando Izzo will be back in defence after serving his long ban related to match-fixing.

Prediction

  • Defeat to Napoli was easy to predict, but Cagliari have now lost three in a row and they will have to regain their confidence before the situation worsens.
  • Genoa have obtained only two points from their first seven games of the season, and with a loss here, are at risk of being leapfrogged by Benevento or left behind by Verona.
  • In recent home games, Cagliari lacked their usual strength when playing in Sardinia as they adapt to the new stadium. However, the trip to Cagliari may not be the best opportunity for Genoa to try and end their negative run.
