US Sassuolo will face Cagliari on Sunday- Serie A

The international break is now over and club football is set to make its return this weekend. Sassuolo will host Cagliari at the Mapei Stadium on Sunday in Serie A action.

Sassuolo are on a run of back-to-back defeats in Serie A at the moment. After losing 2-1 to Empoli last month, they then lost 3-2 to Udinese in the last game. The two losses further emphasized the hosts' sluggish start to the season.

I Neroverdi sit 13th in the league table with just 14 points from 12 games. They have a difficult run of games ahead and will be looking to begin as strongly as possible.

Cagliari lost 2-1 at home to Atalanta last time out and were fortunate not to lose by a higher margin as they never really got close to their visitors. The loss to Atalanta extended their losing streak in the league to four games.

Gli Isolani sit bottom of Serie A with six points from 12 games. They have won one game all season and will be looking to rectify that at the weekend.

Sassuolo have lost their last two games both times, taking the lead and then squandering it. While they are having a disappointing league campaign, their form in front of goal has not wavered as they have scored in all but one of their last 10 games.

Cagliari are on a four-game losing streak and have already conceded 26 goals in 12 games so far, the joint-most in the league. Their losing streak should continue on Sunday.

Prediction: Sassuolo 2-1 Cagliari
