The Sardinians are a tough prospect at home, but their visitors have not looked back since the appointment of Claudio Ranieri.
However, the real talking point should be the return of Luca Toni to Serie A after being cleared to join Roma on loan from Bayern Munich.
The big striker has made no secret of his desire to secure a spot at the World Cup in South Africa, and he will have to hit the ground running if he wants to do so.
He certainly offers the Giallorossi a new option up front, and that could help them graduate into major players.
Toni will relish this chance after some shabby treatment in Germany.
