Cagliari come into this Serie A match against Lazio desperate for victory as they fight to avoid relegation this season.
Five players are out injured for Cagliari heading into this game, with Marko Rog, Kevin Strootman, Damir Ceter, Sebastian Walukiewicz and Nahitan Nandez all unavailable.
The Sardinian side have not lost in the league since 16th January, when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Roma. Since then, they’ve drawn with Fiorentina, beaten Atalanta, drawn with Empoli, drawn with Napoli and beaten Torino.
They now sit 17th in the Serie A table, three points ahead of relegation candidates Venezia, who have a game in hand. Picking up a victory in Rome tomorrow would be incredibly vital in their battle to avoid relegation.
Expected Starting Lineup
The biggest doubts surround Gaston Pereiro and Alessandro Deiola, with Keita Balde and Charalampos Lykogiannis both ready to take their spots in the starting squad. Coach Walter Mazzarri still needs to make some final choices ahead of tomorrow’s match.
- Cagliari (3-5-1-1): Cragno; Goldaniga, Altare, Lovato; Dalbert, Deiola, Marin, Grassi, Bellanova; Pereiro; Joao Pedro.
