Napoli vs Cagliari Match Preview

Napoli’s recent home form has been disappointing, but they are fancied to get back on track with a comfortable win against Cagliari that could effectively clinch second place in Serie A.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been left trailing in Juventus’ wake in the Italian league over the last couple of months and a 3-0 aggregate Europa League quarter-final exit to Arsenal left them with very little to play for over the final five weeks of the season.

In their last three home games the Partenopei have lost to the Gunners and Atalanta and drawn with Genoa, comprising part of a slump that before last weekend had left them vulnerable to a challenge from Inter Milan for the runner’s-up berth behind champions Juve.

But a straightforward 2-0 win at Frosinone has steadied the ship, put them eight points clear of Inter with only 12 more to play for and ought to have given Napoli the confidence to finish the campaign on a positive note.

Cagliari, meanwhile, have been in decent order since mid-February, safely ensconced in mid-table, and their manager Rolando Maran has just been rewarded with a two-year contract extension taking him through to 2022.

However, the Sardinians do not score many goals on their travels (see stats above) and Napoli are backed to gain a first victory in four attempts in front of their home fans.
