Cagliari vs Napoli by Enzo
Cagliari lost 2:0 to Genoa being however very unlucky, as in the first twenty minutes they had three shots in the bar. Anyway, with this result they are now closer than ever to Serie B. The president of Cagliari decided to isolate the team in a training camp by Monday, meanwhile the climate is even more spoiled by the invasion of the fans at the training camp on Friday, where there were threats and moves against the players.
Their coach Zdenek Zeman stated that his players do not feel well after what happened and that some of them are in shock. Key central midfielder Lorenzo Crisetig (24 games) is suspended, while sub right back Francesco Pisano (11 games), sub defender Modibo Diakite (4 games), key attacking midfielder Andrea Cossu (20 games, 2 goals) and main defensive midfielder Godfred Donsah (17 games, 2 goals) are all back in the squad.
Napoli had an amazing game in Germany on Thursday night away to Wolfsburg where they won with the score of 1:4 and with this result they essentially sealed the ticket to the semifinals of the Europa League. In their last game in Serie A they won easily 3:0 against Fiorentina in San Paolo.
After last night's defeat of Lazio from Juventus, Napoli has a chance to win at Cagliari and to reduce the distance between them in five points, while the last game of the season they have to play against Lazio at home. Rafa Benitez did not gave a press conference in view of today's match. Defensive midfielder David Lopez (26 games) is suspended, while right back Camilo Zuniga (7 games), attacking midfielder Jonathan de Guzman (23 games, 3 goals) and attacking midfielder Michu (3 games) are all injured.
The situation in Cagliari is very ugly after the attack on their players on Friday, while the situation in Napoli is exactly opposite. Napoli will exhaust their chances to pass Lazio till the end of the season, and I expect them to win today.
