Match Info

When: Sunday, March 5th, 9:00am ET/ 3:00pm CET

Where: Stadio Sant'Elia, Cagliari, Sardinia

On Sunday, Inter will face Cagliari in Southern Sardinia in the club’s 27th league match of the season. Massimo Rastelli’s Cagliari are in 12th place in Serie A, despite having a staggeringly poor goal differential of -17.

In this match, Inter will try to avenge what has to be one of the most embarrassing home defeats in recent memory. Of course, the last time these two sides met, Cagliari stunned Frank de Boer’s Inter with a 2-1 upset victory at the San Siro.

After a troubling loss to AS Roma last weekend, Inter will surely be eager to recapture the winning form that saw the club win 9 of its last 11 league matches. Cagliari are in poor form at the moment. The Sardinian side recently lost to Empoli, were thrashed 5-0 by Napoli, and dropped points to lowly Pescara. Simply put, Inter are a better team than Cagliari, and anything less than three points will be a massive disappointment.
