Cagliari are back in Serie A action on Saturday as they entertain ninth-placed Sassuolo at the Sardegna Arena.

The hosts suffered their fifth league defeat in a row as they gave up a one-goal lead against Juventus to succumb to a 1-2 defeat at home last week. They are still three points above the relegation zone in 17th-place in the standings but 18th-placed Venezia have a game in hand.

Sassuolo returned to winning ways as Hamed Traorรจ's brace helped them secure a 2-1 win against Atalanta. They still have bleak hopes for a spot in the European competitions next season but will have to avoid losses in their last six games of the campaign.

Cagliari vs Sassuolo Head-to-Head

The two sides have squared off 17 times across all competitions, with the first meeting between the two teams coming in 2013. The visitors are undefeated in their last 11 encounters against the hosts, securing four wins in that period.

The hosts have just three wins to their name, while as many as 10 games have ended in stalemates. This will be the third meeting of the season between the two sides, with the last one coming in the round of 16 Coppa Italia fixture at the Mapei Stadium in January.

The then hosts secured a 1-0 win in that game while the last five Serie A meetings between the two sides have ended in draws.

Cagliari vs Sassuolo Prediction

Sassuolo are undefeated in their last 11 games against the Isolani. The hosts have just two wins at home this season and it is unlikely that they will be able to break their five-game losing streak here.

The visitors have scored in all but one of their away games, while 14 of their 16 away games have seen more than 2.5 goals scored. We predict that Sassuolo will be able to triumph against the islanders.

Prediction: Cagliari 1-2 Sassuolo
