Last season they both were still active in Serie B, but on Sunday they face each other for a league match in Serie A. This Pescara doing a lot less than his opponent on Sunday. Cagliari had a good start of the season and is now in the middle. Cagliari can show that the difference in the ranking is justified?
Pescara: Still no time really to cheer
While there is listed a victory for Pescara, but which was made into the hands of the Italian federation. The match against Sassuolo was decided in their favor because Sassuolo had violated the rules. Separately, Pescara thus won yet this season. Well played all four times the same, but the last time the team made it a point was mid October at home against Sampdoria. Then lost six in a row and the last week was also eliminated in the Coppa Italia by Atalanta 3-0. How happy you was when it might be promoted last season, so crestfallen runs everyone at the club is now in.
Massimo Oddo has so much work to do, but the question is whether he is the right man to get back on track the team. Only the result against Napoli, when the team held to a draw, seen as a good result can, but otherwise keeps it not so. However, it must also be said that in the last two league games at AS Roma and Juventus were obviously not easy. It only lost 3-2 visiting Roma should come as a result where one can draw hope. Hugo Campagnaro is certainly absent as Alexandru Mitriţă. Alessandro Crescenzi and Ahmad Benali are still doubtful. So it will be a little puzzling for Oddo, which is never ideal. The motto at least remain the same as last week: gathering points.
Probable lineup Pescara
Bizzarri, Zampano, Župarić, Fornasier, Biraghi, Memushaj, Far, Brugman, Caprari, Benali, Pepe
Cagliari: No reason to worry
After the first three races had led to a point, then was deployed to the upward trend. Of the next five games, four were won and lost the only visiting Juventus. Then it went a little ups and downs, but overall Cagliari performs so well. This team was the best chance at self-preservation ascribed to the three newly promoted, but that the team of coach Massimo Rastelli yet it still lives up is extra pretty. After the victory last week at home against Udinese, the atmosphere is even better than it was already.
Yet there also will dominate a slight disappointment, because the team was eliminated in the Coppa Italia. Free outgunned was Sampdoria lost 3-0. The focus is now fully on the competition and self-preservation, because that remains the goal. Cagliari is indeed in the middle with nineteen points, but a series of poor results brings the team suddenly into the lower regions. So far it is fortunately not long, so you can leave with his head to Pescara. Only Nicola Murru and probably Panagiotis Tachtsidis absent. For the rest, the selection as well as fit.
Probable lineup Cagliari
Storari, Isla, Alves, Ceppitelli, Pisacane, Dessena, Barella, Padoin, Farias, Sau, Borriello
