Lazio v Cagliari: the perfect opponent
23/07/2020, 19:45 GTM
The positive handicap of guests should come easily: the team looks good in recent matches, while Lazio has accumulated big problems.
Lazio was great in the first round. Simone Inzaghi's team smashed rivals one after another, won the Italian Super Cup, pursued Juventus. Nevertheless, the quarantine introduced a serious imbalance in the team's play and after the restart of the championship, the Eagles' play is seriously different from that, which they demonstrated in the first round.
There is no point in talking about the championship race. Lazio is fourth in the table and is 11 points behind Juventus, but the team is still capable of competing for bronze. Inter is three points ahead. However, the Romans need to end an unsuccessful series that lasts for five matches in order to achieve this. The 1: 2 defeat to Juventus in the last round was the fourth in the last five meetings.

Cagliari were also impressive in the first round, but then the team fell into crisis. They have changed their mentor, but could not return to their previous level. By the 35th round "Rossoblu" are coming up in 11th place in the table, having a gap of 13 points from the relegation zone. It will be unrealistic to lose such a handicap.
In the last round, Cagliari snatched a 1: 1 draw from Sassuolo, failing to win in the sixth match in a row.
Lazio is far from being in the best shape and has not won for five matches, but the game of the Romans cannot be called hopeless. Today the Eagles have the crisis Cagliari as rival, which does not win in six matches in a row and has no longer any motivation. The thing, what the Sardinians played with Sassuolo in the last round can only be called football with a big stretch. Hosts are capable of taking three points with such opponent.
