Next up for Sassuolo will be Cagliari, a team who had their problems last term. Were it not for other teams doing worse, the Rossoblu would have been relegated. Both teams will be hoping to avoid the drop at the very least, but Sassuolo could take advantage of Cagliari’s early troubles and make it two wins out of two this Sunday.

It’s early on, but Cagliari have stumbled already, as they slipped to a 2-0 loss on the road. That’s hardly surprising, as they were quite poor in their travels last season. They will hope to turn things around on home turf, which currently is a temporary ground until their new home opens in around 2021.

Sassuolo picked up a 1-0 win here and they will certainly be happy with another low-scoring result. It doesn’t matter how one wins, it’s simply picking up all three points. So far, Sassuolo have started off much better than last term, which saw them win just one out of their first nine games.

Can they follow up their hard-fought win with another positive result at Cagliari’s expense here?

Cagliari vs Sassuolo: Prediction

Sassuolo started last season off badly, but turned things around and managed to win four of their last six games en route to finishing 11th.

They also were unbeaten in five of their last six away games and are expected to continue that unbeaten run here, especially as Cagliari have been less than convincing since making the move to their temp ground last season.

It may not be the prettiest of results but the Neroverdi will be full of confidence after beating Inter.
