Inter Milan and Cagliari will lock horns with each other in Serie A next weekend. The match between Simone Inzaghi’s side and Claudio Ranieri’s team will be held at San Siro in Milan and is scheduled to kick off at 7:45 pm UK time next Sunday.

Inter Milan

Inter Milan are one of the biggest clubs in the world and are a major force in Italy. Things are going extremely well for Inter in Serie A this season, and it is only a matter of time before they win the Scudetto. It is hard to see the Nerazzurri collapse in the final weeks of the campaign for AC Milan or Juventus to take advantage of.

Simone Inzaghi’s side are at the top of the Serie A table at the moment with 79 points from 30 matches. Inter are as many as 11 points ahead of city rivals and second-placed AC Milan, who have played 31 games. Juventus are third with 62 points from 31 games.

Inter will take on Udinese away from home in Serie A on Monday evening. On April 1, the Nerazzurri beat Empoli 2-0 at San Siro in the league. It followed a 1-1 draw with Napoli in Milan in the league.

Team News:

Inter Milan are likely to line up in a 3-5-2 formation. Emil Audero will be in goal for the home team. Benjamin Pavard, Francesco Acerbi and Alessandro Bastoni will be the three defenders. Matteo Darmian, Nicolo Barella, Hakan Calhanoglu, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Federico Dimarco will be the midfield-five. Marcus Thuram and Lautaro Martinez will be the two forwards.

Cagliari

Cagliari finished fifth in the Serie B table last season and won promotion to Serie A via the playoffs. Claudio Ranieri’s side were expected to fight for survival in the top flight of Italian football, but they are doing much better and are exceeding expectations at the moment.

Gli Isolani are as high as 13th in the Serie A table at the moment with 30 points from 31 matches. Cagliari are four points above the relegation zone. They are above the likes of Lecce, Udinese and Hellas Verona, which shows just how good they are doing.

Cagliari will head into the Serie A match against Inter Milan on the back of a 2-1 victory over Atalanta at home in the league. It followed a 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona in front of their fans which came after a 1-0 defeat to Cagliari in the league.

Team News:

Cagliari are likely to line up in a 4-3-3 formation against Inter Milan. Simone Scuffet will be in goal for the visiting team. Nahitan Nandez, Yerry Mina, Alberto Dossena and Tommaso Augello will be the four defenders. Sulemana, Alessandro Deiola and Antoine Makoumbou will be the three midfielders. Gaetano Oristanio, Eldor Shomurodov and Gianluca Gaetano will be the three forwards.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Lautaro Martinez has scored 23 goals and given 2 assists in 27 Serie A matches for Inter Milan this season.
  • Cagliari have won 3 of their last 5 Serie A matches.
  • Cagliari have conceded 52 goals in 31 Serie A matches this season.
  • Inter Milan have lost just 1 Serie A game all season.
  • Inter Milan have conceded only 14 goals in 30 Serie A matches this season.

Conclusion

Cagliari are doing relatively well at the moment and are in decent form. However, it is hard to see Claudio Ranieri’s side take anything from the match against Inter Milan. The Nerazzurri have been the best team in Serie A this season and have been a force to be reckoned with. It should be a comfortable win for Simone Inzaghi’s team.
