Cagliari – Inter, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CAGLIARI - INTER
Despite the comeback two rounds ago against Parma, we should not forget that Cagliari is a team in very bad shape and coach Maran is under serious pressure. Cagliari has only 2 wins in the last 15 Serie A matches, with 4 of the last five losses. However, they showed a slight improvement in past matches, and Despodov, who was bought in the winter, could start in the first eleven.
Inter had an awful draw against Fiorentina in the last round after leading with 3-1 and eventually taking only 1 point. The important thing that happens with Nerazzurri is their strong performance without Ircardi, which is confirmed with every passing match. This only proves how influential a team’s attitude and psyche is in each game. As there is no such pressure, and Inter plays with freedom and enjoyment, that’s why they get things done. Separately, they are much more creative in attack without him.
We are not sure if there will be goals in the first half. Usually Inter is much stronger in the second half. Certainly the guests are favorites in the match and their victory is too valuable, as they are only 3 points ahead of Roma and are in danger of getting out from the top 4 at the end. Cagliari concede a goal in the second half almost always. Spalletti, however, has class players on the bench, who can influence, when it is needed. Prediction – Inter to score in the second half at 1.56.
- Inter scored in the second half against Cagliari in seven consecutive games
- Inter did not score in the second half as a guest in just 4 away games
