Inter look to continue their quest for Champions League action next season as they travel to take on Cagliari.

The Nerazzurri are in incredible form as of late, winning 12 of their last 15 Serie A matches. Inter currently sit 2 points behind Napoli for the top of the league.

Luciano Spalletti has found a way to get a contribution from every player on the squad. Mauro Icardi bagged a brace in his last match, and looks completely unstoppable at the moment. Ivan Perisic, Antonio Candreva, Milan Skriniar and Samir Handanovic are among a few that have been in brilliant form as of late.

Cagliari haven’t had the hottest of seasons, but manger Diego Lopez has been able to turn things around. They’re currently six points from the bottom in the Serie A while placing 13th on the table.


Icardi will have to find his way around defender Luca Ceppitelli, who leads Cagliari in match rating with 7.40, according to WhoScored. The 28-year-old averages 2.4 tackles and 6.6 clearances per contest.

Cagliari might be seen in a defensive 3-5-2, but their 2.5 goals against in their last 3 matches might indicate their defensive struggles. What might help is that regular starter Alessio Cragno could regain his place in goal for the match against Inter.

I wouldn’t expect a blowout from Internazionale in this contest, but they should walk out with the three points. Look for big days from Icardi, Perisic and Candreva.
