Current Form
The Little Donkeys succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Juventus FC away on 8 December and they are now winless in two matches in the Italian top-flight.
Napoli are also winless in their last four home matches in the league having recorded one draw and three defeats at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. 
Meanwhile, Cagliari suffered a 1-0 loss to SS Lazio on 2 December and they are winless in their last three games in the Serie A, and they will host US Sassuolo on 11 December.
The Islanders are also winless in their last 12 away matches in the league having recorded four draws and eight defeats as the visitors.
Team News
Napoli have no suspension concerns, but the champions will be without Mathías Olivera, Mário Rui and Jens Cajuste who are all out injured.
Cagliari, on the other hand, will be without Marko Rog, Elio Capradossi and Alessandro Di Pardo who are all out injured, and Antoine Makoumbou is suspended.
“Those who know football know that there are moments, it’s difficult to give an explanation after a match like that," Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri said after his side's loss to Juventus.
“The boys dominated, forcing Juventus into their own half for almost the entire second-half. We just made the mistake of not going on the path to the goal and finding the man in the area. 
"I think a team could do little more than Napoli. These are moments, I think that by playing like this we will be able to achieve some results.”
Napoli and Cagliari drew 1-1 in their last meeting in Serie A which was on 21 February 2022 at the Sardegna Arena.
As a result, the Little Donkeys are undefeated in their last five matches in the league against the Islanders having registered two draws and three wins.
