Cagliari are struggling for form at the moment and are set to battle for survival in the final weeks of the league campaign. After their impressive 1-0 victory over Sassuolo, they lost 1-0 to fellow relegation battlers Genoa in their next game.
Cagliari sit 17th in the league table with 28 points from 34 games. They are just three points above the drop zone and will look to widen that gap with a victory on Saturday.
Hellas Verona, meanwhile, have had mixed results of late, picking up two wins, two draws and two losses in their last six games. They played out a 1-1 draw against Sampdoria last time out, with Gianluca Caprari scoring a second-half equaliser against his parent club.
The visitors sit ninth in the Serie A standings with 49 points. They are seven points behind the European spots and will look to return to winning ways this weekend to keep their continental ambitions alive.
