Cagliari Vs. Pescara, Preview: Let's all hope for a surprise

Cagliari are languishing second from bottom and Pescara aren't faring much better in Serie A. Is there a reason to watch this match?

Unless you're a rabid fan of either Cagliari or Pescara -- and if you are, we'd like to hear from you -- don't bother watching this match. The two sides have scored just six goals between them, with Cagliari notching just two. Two! Only Palermo is more pathetic. In fact, it's only by virtue of the rosanero free-fall that Cagliari aren't sitting dead last in the table. Pescara, at least, have managed a win, but at who's expense? Oh, that's right, it's Palermo again. God help these two clubs once Gian Piero Gasperini saves the Sicily side.

At least Cagliari supporters can watch their boys at home. Well, sort of. Season ticket holders will be allowed into the Is Arenas. But will they want to see what's being played out?
