Cagliari vs Empoli
After a good start under new head coach Iachini, Empoli has slowed his run losing four matches in a row, the schedule was not the easiest to be said, Fiorentina and Torino away, Sampdoria and Inter at home but but it is also at game level that the team no longer appears convincing as in the first four games matches with the new manager.
Cagliari, 3/5/1 at home and four points above guests, have lost away against Udinese in the last game,a balanced match until the red card of skipper/cb Ceppitelli in the 50th minute, since the end of October, two wins, four draws and three defeats but all of them against Juventus 1st, Lazio 4th away and Napoli 2nd at home in injury time.
About the team news, Cagliari captain Ceppitelli obviously be absent due to red card while Empoli will be without the two midfielders most used till now, 2nd scorer and best assist man Krunic 17/0 and Bennacer 14/5 both suspended.
Sardegna Arena is a tough place to play for all and Empoli are the worst team on the road W0/D3/L6, considering what I wrote above an home win should be possible as the odds in drop are suggesting.
