Napoli – Cagliari Preview

The Serie A champion Napoli hosts Cagliari at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in a match from the 16th round of the competition. Let’s preview it in these soccer betting tips daily.

 

Napoli’s problems continue even after Rudi Garcia’s sacking and the return of Walter Mazzari. The Azzurri lost three of their last four matches in the league which made them fell to 6th place in the table. Last weekend Napoli paid a visit to Juventus in Turin, but conceded a 0-1 defeat. During the week the Azzurri showed a better face, though – they faced Sporting Braga in the Champions League and celebrated a 2-0 win. This should give Napoli a bigger confidence before facing Cagliari.

 

It remains to be seen if Mazzari makes some changes in the line-up compared to the game against Braga. Eljif Elmas could return in the line-up in midfield while Gianluca Gaetano and Jens Cajuste are options for the starting eleven.

 

Cagliari needs points – as much as they can win. The Rossoblu are 16th in the standings with 13 points, but this puts them only one point above the relegation zone.

 

Last week Claudio Ranieri’s team achieved a very important win which allowed them to escape the relegation zone. The Rossoblu hosted Sassuolo and enjoyed a dramatic 2-1 win with two goals in the injury time. Lapadula and Pavoletti put the ball in the net for Cagliari.

 

Leonardo Pavoletti could return in the starting eleven after his winning goal against Sassuolo. For him it was his third goal for the season. Let’s see if he is going to remain in the line-up against Napoli as well.

 

That’s the soccer betting tips daily for the Serie A clash between Napoli and Cagliari at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Saturday. Clearly Napoli are favorites here, so let’s see what they can do.
