Teams Status

Cagliari Form and Team News

The hosts find themselves in the bottom three of the Serie A table, managing to scoop only 29 points all season. They trail Salernitana by one point, and they must avoid defeat against Inter to stay alive heading into the next round when they meet with bottom-placed Venezia. They needed an all-important last-minute leveler to secure a draw at Salernitana last week.

Cagliari have only won six matches all season, with only three of those coming at home, where they have also lost nine times and six times as outsiders. For injuries and suspensions, goalkeeper Boris Radunovic is suspended after picking up a red card, and midfielder Nahitan Nandez may not feature as he is still injured.

Inter Milan Form and Team News

Inter Milan capped off a beautiful Coppa Italia showing with a 4-2 comeback win against Juventus. However, they needed extra time and the individual brilliance of Ivan Perisic to get their winning goals. The Nerazzurri can now turn to their thrilling Scudetto race and must keep winning to have any chance to defend their crown successfully.

Their heroics in extra time may pile more fatigue on the team, which may be concerning if Cagliari mount a spirited effort. Inter Milan have recovered an average of 2.20 points from losing positions away from home this season, thanks to in-form stars like Perisic, Edin Dzeko, and Lautaro Martinez. Mattias Vecino is the only name on the absentee list for Inter, and he will not make the trip to Cagliari due to an injury.

Tipster’s Angle

Inter Milan have lost only once in their last 13 away games in Serie A, winning seven and drawing five. They face a Cagliari team that have won only twice in their last ten matches, losing seven and drawing one. Inter also have a great head-to-head record against Cagliari, winning eight of their last ten meetings and only losing once to Cagliari in 2019, which, coincidentally, was an away match. Here are our thoughts on Cagliari vs. Inter Milan.

Tip: Inter Milan to Win @ 1.41

Cagliari have only won once in all the home games they played as the underdogs/outsiders. Inter have only one loss in their last 13 matches away from home and will most likely seize this opportunity to go top of the table, ahead of AC Milan’s match. Inter Milan to win is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.41 odds.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.132

Inter have scored the most goals in the league this season, and although Cagliari have scored less than half of Inter’s total goal haul, this fixture has produced some high-scoring results in the past few years. Nine of the last ten meetings between Cagliari and Inter Milan have had at least two goals, and we expect a similar outcome this weekend. The odds for over 1.5 goals are available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.132.


Cagliari must avoid losing to an Inter side desperate to defend their Serie A title and retain the crown. The threat of relegation looms on the home side, while, for Inter, this match is all about staying in pole position to take advantage of any slip-ups by AC Milan. We expect an exciting football match at Unipol Domus, Cagliari.
