Napoli hosts Cagliari in round 6 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, September 26th at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona (Naples)
Napoli is the sole leader of the top division of Italian football. The team won all five starting matches of the 2021/2022 season in Serie A. If we look at the official games of different tournaments, the Neapolitans’ unbeaten streak has been going on since last season, and today it has 15 matches. Some analysts say that this year, given the instability of Milan, Inter, Juventus, and Atalanta, the Neapolitans have a chance to compete for the Scudetto. The distance will show whether the Parthenopeans will be able to achieve success. So far, everything is fine, and only two conceded goals speak of the reliability of the defense. Let’s note that in the two previous rounds, Luciano Spalletti’s charges defeated Udinese and Sampdoria with the same score of 4-0.

Leonardo Semplici could not bring Cagliari to a new level. In the previous season, the club barely retained its place in the top division of Italian football. The management decided to shake up the players. The new coaching staff is headed by Walter Mazzarri, who previously worked with many Serie A clubs. However, nothing has changed so far. The Sardinians have not yet won a single match of the Italian championship and, as a result, they are in the relegation zone with only two points. We will add that in the previous round, which took place in the middle of the week, the Islanders lost at home to the newcomer Empoli (0-2), having inflicted only one shot on the opponent’s goal.
The teams are in different situations. Napoli is the leader with excellent results (five victories in five games). Cagliari players are one of the underdogs from the relegation zone who have not won a single match yet. The rosters cannot be compared. The hosts have a stellar lineup, while the visitors have only a few well-known names, and even then experienced players warm the bench for the substitutes. Joao Pedro alone cannot nerf the whole team. We expect that the favorite will gain a confident victory at home.
