Victor Osimhen proved to be a huge difference-maker in the first meeting between Napoli and Cagliari Calcio in Italian Serie A play this season. He scored the first goal of the match in the 11th minute and drew a penalty in the box early in the second half for Lorenzo Insigne to close the door on a 2-0 victory. Osimhen should be back on the pitch again on Monday when the two clubs meet again, as Napoli will try to continue challenging for its third Serie A championship this season. You can see what happens when you stream the game live on Paramount+.

Italian Serie A picks for Napoli vs. Cagliari
Before tuning into Monday’s match, you need to see the Napoli vs. Cagliari picks from European soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Napoli vs. Cagliari, Eimer is backing Napoli to win the match at -185 odds. While betting such a heavy favorite doesn’t appear to carry much value, there isn’t much to suggest Cagliari has what it takes to pull off the upset, even at home. The Islanders also may be feeling a bit of desperation to avoid relegation as the season winds down and are still in striking distance of winning Serie A, just three points behind leader AC Milan with a game in-hand.
Although Cagliari has proven to be a scrappy club since the return from the league’s holiday break, it’s difficult to see where it can carve out an advantage on the field against Napoli. Gli Azzurri didn’t press the issue much in the first leg of its UEFA Europa League playoff against Barcelona last Thursday after getting the first goal in the 29th minute, and their previous match against Inter Milan followed a similar script. However, Napoli was merciless in its prior two league matches it had against Venezia and Salernitana. In the latter, Napoli took 81 percent of the possession and outshot its opponent 24-1.
“After pulling draws against Barcelona in Europa League and Inter the week before, Napoli has been making sure everyone knows they are still in the running to finish up at the top of table,” Eimer told SportsLine. “With a multitude of capable scorers up front in [Dries] Mertens, Insigne, Osimhen and more, Napoli has had no trouble finding the net, scoring at least once in their last eight matches.”
