The Cagliari enters the field for this game a little less pressured, after having managed to win again for the Italian league, thus enclosing a fast that lasted five days, period in which he suffered three defeats.

Another problem of the club has been the lack of precision in the change of passes, making it difficult to create good scoring opportunities. The 3-5-1-1 or the 4-3-1-2 must be the tactical formation adopted by the coach, who can not count on Miangue, expelled on the last day.
