Cagliari take on the visitors Inter in the round 37 match of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, May 15th at Unipol Domus (Cagliari).
Cagliari have been constantly fighting for survival in recent years. Last season they finished in the “saving” 16th place. Recently there were 7 defeats in 8 fights, and even a pleasant exception in the form of a victory over Sassuolo did not save the club from sliding into the relegation zone, and the mentor from being fired. In early May, he was replaced by Alessandro Agostini, a local legend as a football player: 266 matches in 2004-2012. He has no independent coaching experience, but the 42-year-old began as an “acting” with relative success, in the form of an away draw against Salernitana. But this is the case when only competitors are happy, and the status quo is maintained between the teams. However, there are chances to get around the “seahorses” and escape, the gap is minimal, 29 points against 30.

Inter this week was able to replenish their collection of trophies. On Wednesday evening, they put the squeeze on the opponent in extra time. This time Barella opened the scoring already in the 6th minute. But it seemed that the “Old Signora” turned the tide of the fight when, after the break, Alex Sandro and Vlahovic managed to score twice with an interval of a couple of minutes. But still, the Nerazzurri had the last word – Calhanoglu scored 2-2 from the penalty spot in regular time, and the most experienced Perisic scored a double in extra time. Immediately after moving to Milan, Simone Inzaghi took 2 trophies with his charges! But still close to losing the main dispute to a neighbor. Good results in April allowed us to come close to Milan, but the chance to become 1st was missed – in the rescheduled match with Bologna, the favorite made an unexpected misfire, 1-2. After that, the “black and blue” only won – but the neighbor also answered the same. There are 2 points between the contenders, so far, the chances of success remain.
Cagliari have 1 draw in their last 6 head-to-head matches – and that one in 2020. This season, the Nerazzurri completely defeated the outsider with a score of 4-0. Cagliari cannot count on Fiorillo, Ranieri and Mousse. Inter lost only Vecino. Bookmakers consider the visitors as clear favorite of a couple. Cagliari does not look like a serious rival for Inter – we are waiting for the champion to win in the 1st half and the match.
