Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a routine 4-0 win over Lecce, Roma will be looking to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they take on Cagliari at Sardegna Arena on Matchday 26. The Giallorossi impressed in their last league fixture, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-four finish. Edin Dzeko, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, will be the man to watch in the away team, while Gianluca Mancini misses the match through suspension.
The Sardinians, on the other hand, were not in action at the weekend. Cagliari aim to put an end to their eleven-game winless run in all competitions, but we do not believe that they are capable of matching the Romans, who have been in a fine form of late. It has to be noted that Nandez is sidelined through suspension for the hosts.
