Cagliari vs Lazio
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Sardegna Arena.
The second part of previous Serie A season was a pure disappointment for Cagliari’s fans. After very high rankings in the early stages, the squad’s form declined and eventually slipped to 14th place, miles away from desired Europa League spot.
Team from Sardinia started the new campaign with a solid 1-1 draw in Reggio Emilia against Sassuolo, while having a home debut this Saturday.
Opponent is going to be much tougher than last week – Lazio are coming for their first points in season 2020/21. Hopefully Sky Blues can repeat results from last year so we can once again have an interesting title race.

Cagliari vs Lazio Prediction
Cagliari decided to play only two pre-season games. They were victorious against Olbia 1-0 FT, while the last test against Roma also went well 2-2 FT. There were no many changes when it comes to transfers.
The attack is once again going to be led by Giovanni Simeone’s whose contract was bought off from Fiorentina. He bagged 12 goals for Cagliari in the previous season. He secured a point in abovementioned match against Sassuolo last week.
Lazio were the only team chasing Juventus in late stages of previous campaign. The core of the team is still there. Milinkovic-Savic decided to stay in Rome for at least one more year, as well as Ciro Immobile.
Laziali looked solid in pre-season games, winning three out of five, while losing none. We are expecting an open duel and a lot of goals. Lazio to win at 1.72 is going to be our secondary betting choice.
