Cagliari vs Inter Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: Friday, 1 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
Inter seem to have recovered form big crisis in the second part of January. They grew in form significantly in February making it four wins and a draw in last five games in all competitions.
They deserved to keep the winning streak going on Sunday against Fiorentina, but Viola managed to save a point after coming back from two behind with the help of VAR.
Nerazzurri showed how confident they are by clawing their way back into the contest at Artemio Franchi in spite of conceding the first-minute opener on the evening.
Luciano Spalletti’s men will thus travel to Sardegna Arena to play Cagliari in the highest of spirits. They need a win here being just two points above fierce city rivals Milan and three ahead of Roma in fifth.
This is a completely winnable affair for Inter as they are up against an out-of-form bottom half opposition in the first match of 26th Serie A round.
Cagliari vs Inter Milan: Head-to-head
Cagliari did not represent a serious threat to Nerazzurri in the most recent head to head history.
Inter Milan won six of last seven ties with I Rossoblu.
Each of last four H2H games saw Inter winning by at least two goals difference.
The streak includes September’s 2-0 victory for Nerazzurri at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Cagliari vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Cagliari dropped down to 14th place after losing four of last five league outings. They are just six points adrift of Cagliari the red zone at the moment. Scoring goals was a significant issue for Rolando Maran’s squad in recent weeks. They failed to find the back of the net in four of last five league affairs.
Inter were also super tough to break down all up until last weekend’s 3-3 draw to Fiorentina at Stadio Artemio Franchi. They are huge form favourites, they’ve dominated the head to head match-up and they need points to stay on top of Milan and Roma in the battle for the top-four finish.
