Cagliari started their new Serie A campaign with an away 1–3 lost to Genoa CFC, as the goals from Olivier Ntcham, Diego Laxalt, and Luca Rigoni canceled Marco Borriello 45th minute header. As for team news, Joao Pedro and Daniele Dessena miss out for the hosts, making their task even tougher in this fixture.
Meantime, Luciano Spalletti’s side crashed Udinese, 4–0, courtesy of goals from Dzeko, Salah and Perrotti’s double right at their courtyard of Stadio Olimpico in Rome last Saturday to kick off their title challenge this campaign. But there was a moment of huge disappointment in midweek, with Roma’s 3–0 sweeping out at home to Porto kicking them out of the Champions League at the group stage. Centre-back Antonio Rudiger will be absent for Roma in this match, with a knee injury.
