by | Sep 21, 2021 13:59

Cagliari are still looking for their first win in Serie A 2021-22 when Empoli arrive on Wednesday night, as Andrea Pinamonti could get the nod up front for the visitors.

Diego Godin and Kevin Strootman are back in training but expected to start on the bench, as Walter Mazzarri continues his hunt for Cagliari’s first three points this week.

Newly promoted Empoli arrive without Tonelli but could have Bandinelli back in midfield. Andrea Pinamonti seems set to replace Patrick Cutrone in attack.
