Inter vs Cagliari by JerryDrake

Big news from Italy: Inter won two games in a row. It did not happen since November 2013 when Inter defeated Udinese 3-0 and Livorno 2-0. Now, after a series of 1-5-4 since November, Inter succeeded in defeating Sassuolo 1-0 and Fiorentina 2-1.


Internazionale are now 5th with 39 points and if the league finished now they would qualify to Europa League. Cagliari have 24 points and are placed 15th. Lets compare their home and away results. Inter lost only one game at home (6-5-1, 18/12), Cagliari have never been able to win on the road and scored only 4 goals out of 11 games (0-5-6, 4/13).


Although Cagliari still have a good advantage on the relegation, I must underline the fact they have lost 5 games out of their last 6 defeating only Fiorentina 1-0 on February 2nd. They have lost to Juventus, Atalanta, Milan, Sampdoria and even at home with Livorno 1-2.


Let me be sincere: it has never been so boring to write a preview on a match like this one. I write about statistics, results, possible line-ups and still can not see the light, a little detail that can motivate me in watching this game.


I can notice only that the return of Samuel was a big help for Inter defense which regained some solidity. On the other side, Cagliari conceded only 2 goals in their last 5 away games (3 times 0-0, 2 defeats both 1-0). Inter must be cynic and get three points, the only thing that counts now for Mazzarri and Thohir. Correct score: 1-0 Palacio

Very nice call on the under! Betting on an Inter or Milan win is very risky this season...glad I stayed away today.
