Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Cagliari and Lecce, the two teams from the south, take on each other in a highly-anticipated game at Sardegna Arena. The Sardinians did well to hold Fiorentina to a goalless draw in midweek, with the team retaining their spot in top ten. Cagliari aim to move a little closer to the Europa League berth, and the good news for the hosts is that defender Andrea Carboni returns from suspension.
Lecce, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Lazio, and they managed to get one. The Giallorossi proved their worth in the triumph over the title-chasing side, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. However, Lecce are not regarded as good travelers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Cagliari’s party at Sardegna Arena. Lecce midfielder Panagiotis Tachtsidis returns to contention after missing the Lazio game through suspension.
