Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Cagliari will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 defeat to Fiorentina when they take on Milan at Sardegna Arena on Matchday 18. The Sardinians made a slow start to the year, with the team suffering a loss in each of their previous three league fixtures. Cagliari obviously struggle at the back, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Monday’s clash against the league leaders. The Rossoneri, on the other hand, did well to bounce back from the loss to Juve, with the team beating Torino 2-0 without any difficulties.
Since both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Hakan Calhanoglu have recovered from their respective injuries, we are tempted to put our money on Stefano Pioli’s men, who are eager to put an end to Juventus’ dominance in the Italian top flight. Nahitan Nandez remains on the sidelines through suspension for the hosts, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
