Italy: Serie A
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
According to the results of the 5th round of the group stage of the Champions League three representatives of the Italian football – Juevtus, Roma and Napoli still have great chances to get into the first round of play-off.
This fact is very important for the continuous battle of Serie A and German Bundesliga and UEFA club ranking. Now is quite obvious that in the final TOP 16 of the best European clubs only Bayern Munich will be included.
Shadow position of Nerazzurri
While Juventus, Roma and Napoli are solving their Champions League’s tasks, the shadow favorite of the current Calcio’s race is Inter Milan.
Napoli – 35, Inter – 33, Juventus – 31, Roma – 30, Lazio – 28 …
Two main challengers of Napoli once again have changed their places during the previous round. The champion has lost in Genoa to local Sampdoria (3:2) and Inter at home arena San Siro had scored two unanswered goals to Atalanta (2:0) and once again became the main rival for Napoli.
The visit to Sardinia
It is quite natural that now the team of Luciano Spalletti will try to strengthen its current tournament position with another easily predictable victory. The closest away match rival for Nerazzurri will become the main team from Sardinia – Cagliari.
According to the results of 13th rounds the Red and Blue team of Diego Lopez is taking now the 13th place and only 6 points separate it from the 18th position that is taken by Genoa.
Second Italian championship’s season in a row has determined very quickly the quartet of the main underdogs and this time these are Benevento, Verona, Genoa and SPAL. And that is why, the teams like Cagliari are really confident in their success.
Will Cagliari be able to fight against serious and super motivated rival? We doubt that the answer can be yes…
Cagliari – 5.25, draw – 4.00, Inter – 1.60;
