Cagliari vs Juventus - Competition: Italian Serie A

Cagliari team are an unpredictable team with an offensive way of play, imposed by their new coach Zeman, that demands a lot of movement from his team. Considering only the away matches of this season, Cagliari would be on the 9th place with 2 wins gained in Milan against Inter Milan (4-1) and in Empoli (4-0), 3 draws and 3 defeats. But Zeman‘s team didn’t win at home this season yet and are the worst home team in the entire Calcio, even Parma and Cesena won at least once at home. All the soccer experts know the battle that Zeman fought against the old style Juventus with their corruption issues, and for him and his fans, a win on Thursday evening would feel like a Scudetto.
Juventus are once again the Serie A leader in all categories after 15 rounds: points, goals scored and clean sheets, even though they are coming from two consecutive draws, what has never happened in the last couple of years. In fact, Massimiliano Allegri and his team were not able to defeat Fiorentina (0-0) and Sampdoria (1-1) in the last two Italian Serie A matches. On Thursday, they will face Cagliari where they didn’t lose since 2009. After that match, the Bianconeri will travel to Doha to clash SSC Napoli on Monday for the Italian Super Cup Trophy. In Cagliari, Bonucci will miss the match due to suspension and Allegri hopes to recover Caceres and Baragli.

Probable lineups:
Cagliari: Cragno – Balzano, Ceppitelli, Rossettini, Avelar – Crisetig, Conti, Ekdal – Farias, Ibarbo, Cossu.
Juventus: Buffon – Lichtsteiner, Ogbonna, Chiellini, Evra – Marchisio, Pirlo, Pogba – Vidal – Llorente, Tevez.
