Italian Serie A match preview 26 Sep 2020: Cagliari vs Lazio. Serie A Week 2 – Saturday 26 Sep 2020 (17.00 BST time)
Lazio have their first competitive match of the season, as Cagliari hope to have Diego Godin join in time to make his debut.
The Aquile saw their Week 1 fixture with Atalanta postponed to September 30 because their opponents were given extra time due to Champions League commitments.
Simone Inzaghi’s team is practically unchanged, as Vedat Muriqi isn’t ready yet, while Mohamed Fares is likely to be benched in favour of Adam Marusic.
Cagliari, on the other hand, have brought in numerous new faces and thrown many of them in at the deep end during the opening 1-1 draw with Sassuolo. Godin is expected to arrive from Inter in the days before the game, but it might be too early to start him on Saturday.
