Empoli hosts Cagliari
Empoli hosts Cagliari in a match from the first round of the new season in the Italian Serie A. Let’s take a look at this clash. For Empoli this is the first game since they returned to the Serie A. They dominated in the Serie B and didn’t have much of a problem to return to the elite division. Of course, now it’s going to be much more difficult for them because the difference between the Serie A and the Serie B is enormous. During the summer Empoli made some improvements to their team. The club signed Palermo’s striker Antonino La Gumina for 9 million euro, while they also signed Samuel Mraz from Zilina, Jacob Rasmussen from Rosenborg and Lorenzo Lollo from Carpi. How you can suggest, Empoli’s main goal this season is going to be the survival. Aurelio Andreazzoli’s team doesn’t have the potential for something more in the Calcio. If they can stay away from the relegation zone and have a calm and comfortable campaign, this is going to be great for them. For just another season, Cagliari managed to keep their place in the Serie A. The Rossoblu had a tough campaign and finished 16th, being on just 4 points ahead of the 18th Crotone. It was a true scare for Cagliari, so now they’d try to avoid this. On the transfer market, Cagliari paid 10 million euros to Napoli for the striker Leonardo Pavoletti, while Lucas Castro from Chievo and Filip Bradaric from Rijeka were also signed. This is our look at the Serie A game between Empoli and Cagliari on Sunday afternoon. Empoli has the advantage to play at home in this one, but they are also the newcomer here, which makes Cagliari maybe a slight favourite. It shall be an interesting game. Good luck!
