Cagliari earned promotion to the Serie A after finishing first in the 2015–16 Serie B. However their first match of the new season end in a disappointing 3-1 away at Genoa. After a goal-less first half the Rossoblu took the lead through Marco Borriello. But Genoa fought back brilliantly and Ntcham, Laxalt and Rigoni scored in 78, 79 and 88 minutes to mark a memorable comeback.

With an almost fully fit squad Luciano Spalletti will be looking for a positive response from his team on Sunday.
