Inter Milan vs Cagliari: Match Preview

The Nerazzurri take on Sardinians less than two weeks on from the Coppa Italia encounter between the two sides.

Antonio Conte’s men smashed Cagliari 4-1 at the Giuseppe Meazza, but failed to transfer their form to the Serie A as they recorded their second draw on the trot, fourth in the last six league matches.

Inter Milan are now four points off of the top spot and two points ahead of Lazio, who also have a game in hand.

Inter have recorded six wins, two draws and one defeat at home this season, avearging 1.80 goals scored per bout and conceding 0.70 in return. They’ve earned eleven points from last five home fixtures (3-2-0).

Il Sardi finally snapped their five-game winless run with a feisty 2-2 draw against Brescia at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti. After some dreadful performances over the last month, Rolando Maran’s side looked dangerous again as they recorded eighteen shots, ten on target, and generated nine goal-scoring opportunities.

Joao Pedro ended his three-game goal drought by netting a brace.With the W-D-L record of 8-6-6, they’re sitting at 6th position, two points clear of Parma and AC Milan.

Cagliari have collected fourteen points from ten games away from Sardegna Arena, scoring and conceding goals at the same rate – 1.50 goals per match. The Islanders have lost two of their last three away matches.

Inter Milan vs Cagliari: Prediction

Cagliari are on the way of recovery, but I can’t see them stopping Inter on Sunday. They are not there yet.

I’m confident that hosts will end their drawing spell and get back on winning ways, but I won’t touch them at 1.37. Instead, with a 3-1 or 2-1 hunch, I will take over 2.5 goals.

As for my second bet, I’ll pick the Nerazzurri to lead at half-time. This is a must-win game for them and I’m sure Lukaku and Martinez will go for the jugular from the first whistle.
