After furious start of this season Inter dropped their form and are out of title race, again Juventus proved that are strongest team in league and will probably defend a title once again, Inter are at 4th position and they must show something much better until the end to climb up to a position which leads into Champions league group stage, tonight will host Cagliari and only victory will count.
In last three rounds Inter failed to score, they earned only two points after two goalless draw against Atalanta and Milan while in duel with Torino suffered narrow defeat, then they met with Cagliari in first half of the season achieved routine victory on the road and here i'm quiet sure that can take all three points, however they must show much more in attack than in recent games.
Inter conceded only 22 goals in 32 rounds and were really good in defense, they suffered only four defeats but 12 times took only one point, they have quality to end up among top four teams in Italy, just must find the right form, victory in this game is their only option but at this moment it seems that Cagliari won't be some difficult obstacle to overcome. Good news for Inter are that they have no absent players for this game.
Cagliari occupies 14th position at the table in Serie A and most important for them is to avoid relegation battle, at this moment are out of that but to keep their spot must show some improving, in last round they achieved victory over Udinese, they had initiative in that game and despite fall behind early they managed to come back and score two goals until the end, that victory ended streak of three consecutive defeats but now are facing with Inter and i don't believe that can do something tonight.
Cagliari had a lot of problems in defense, this team conceded 52 goals, despite Inter failed to impress with their goal scoring skills i still don't believe that will manage to keep a clean sheet. Guests suffered 18 defeats in this season and it's hard to expect that will manage to avoid 19th tonight against strong Inter, guests defeated Inter only once in last five encounters but i just doubt that here can avoid defeat.
Cagliari are now fighting only to remain safe and this team should avoid dropping under the line but as we already said in front of them are much stronger opponents and to achieve positive result must show something really special. Midfielder Daniele Desena (17/1) and forward Diego Farias (26/1) are both injured and will miss this match, midfielder Luca Cigarini (24/2), offensive midfielders Joao Pedro (23/6) and Nicolo Barella (30/6) are suspended.
Inter are huge favorites for this duel but they weren't so impressive in recent matches, guests neither are in some great form, victory of Inter seems inevitable here but i doubt that we'll see a lot of goals, under 2.5 seems like a perfect option.
