Match preview

The upcoming Serie A fixture between Sassuolo and Cagliari promises to be a captivating encounter at the MAPEI Stadium – Città del Tricolore on May 19, 2024. Both teams are eager to end their season on a high note, despite their challenging campaigns. Sassuolo currently sits at the bottom of the Serie A table in 19th place with just 29 points from 36 games. Their recent form has been disappointing, with only one win in their last five matches (LWLLD). Defensive frailties have plagued them, conceding 72 goals this season, the highest in the league. Sassuolo's attacking line, led by the talismanic Domenico Berardi, will be significantly weakened as he is sidelined due to an Achilles tendon injury. On the other hand, Cagliari is battling relegation worries of their own, occupying the 16th position with 33 points. The Sardinians have managed to secure only one win in their last five outings (LDLDD). Despite their poor away form (1 win in 18 away games), Cagliari will look to capitalize on Sassuolo's vulnerabilities. They will miss the services of Jakub Jankto and Antoine Makoumbou, which could impact their midfield stability. With both teams having little to play for besides pride and survival, this fixture sets up to be an intense and closely-fought contest, providing plenty of opportunities for first team vs second team bets and thrilling action for the fans.
