These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Serie A. This match was also played here at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. With two consecutive home games the intense schedule is somewhat softened. Still, Cagliari have had more rest.

These teams have little in common geographically as Cagliari have to travel 800 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

Cagliari form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Cagliari so far with only 10 points returning home. The records show 2-4-8 (win-draw-lose). Recent form does not give Cagliari much hope, as the visitors have lost three games in a row. Inter will be a tough nut to crack.

The manager L. Semplici was unhappy after their last game, a Serie A match played at their home ground Sardegna Arena. Cagliari suffered a 0-2 loss to Hellas Verona (placed 8th). It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Spezia wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.

With the home team given a winning probability of about 80% by the bookmakers, any positive result for the visitors would be a surprise. Checking earlier matches with similar odds with Cagliari as the away team, we found seven results. Statistics from these were one away win, zero draws and six defeats. The outsiders lost five of these games by at least two goals.

The visiting Cagliari have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 16 goals from 14 games. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Cagliari have conceded 24 goals on the road. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
