Defending champions Inter Milan will look to go top of the Serie A table with a win over Cagliari at the San Siro on Sunday night.
INTER MILAN RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Inter Milan saw their 11-game unbeaten run in all competitions come to an end when they lost 2-0 to Spanish giants Real Madrid midweek in the Champions League. The result saw them settle for second place in Group H. However, they are going strong in their pursuit of a second Serie A title in a row. Inter Milan have won their last four Serie A games, the last three of them to nil, and are unbeaten in eight league games. Inter Milan are the highest scoring side this Serie A season with 39 goals – an average of 2.4 per game. They are unbeaten on home ground this Serie A season conceding just four times so far. Simone Inzaghi’s men have won eight of the last ten Serie A meetings against Cagliari. Joaquin Correa, Matteo Darmian, and Andrea Ranocchia are ruled out with injuries. Veteran striker Edin Dzeko is Inter’s joint-leading Serie A scorer this season will partner Lautaro Martinez up front in attack.
CAGLIARI RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Cagliari has just one win to their name this season. Although they have drawn their last four games, the Sardinian outfit has now gone eight Serie A games without a win. Cagliari has failed to score in four of their last five away matches. They now face a tough battle to save their Serie A season and are now four points worse off than this stage of last season. Cagliari’s away form is nothing to write home about as they possess the worst away record (D3 L4) in Serie A this season. They have scored an average of just 0.4 goals per game across their last five away Serie A games. Midfielders Marko Rog and Riccardo Ladinetti are ruled out with injuries. Kevin Strootman is a major doubt.
PREDICTION: INTER MILAN WIN 2-0/2-1/3-0/3-1
