Cagliari Form & Team News 

Cagliari lost their opening Serie A game last weekend. They were defeated 1-0 at home by Brescia and things will not get any easier when they welcome Inter Milan to the Sardegna Arena. 

After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, Cagliari will know that they need to improve their home form if they are to compete this year. The Rossoblu have lost their last three home games. 

Manager Rolando Maran is likely to stick with a similar starting 11 to the one he played against Brescia. Leonardo Pavoletti, João Pedro Santos and Valter Birsa are likely to be their key attacking threats once again. 

Cagliari are priced out at 6.00 with bet365 to pick up their first home win of the season. This reflects the difference in quality between them and Inter Milan

Inter Milan Form & Team News

Inter Milan come into Sunday’s game after a confident 4-0 win over Lecce earlier this week. Milan looked incredibly dominant in their game against the newly-promoted side. They created 24 chances and had four different goalscorers in the match. Romelu Lukaku, Stefano Sensi, Marcelo Brozovic, and Antonio Candevra all grabbed opening day goals. 

Antonio Conte is likely to name the same 11 that picked up the victory on Monday night. Romelu Lukaku looked very impressive on his debut and will lead the line once again. New signing Alexis Sanchez will likely make an appearance in the game following his arrival from Manchester United mid-week. 

Inter Milan are clear favourites to win the game. They are priced at 1.66 to win the match with bet365, which is great value given how impressive they looked on Monday. 

Cagliari vs Inter Milan Match Analysis - Inter Milan to continue to perform

Inter Milan looked excellent on the opening day of the season against Lecce. They controlled the game and created 24 chances, with eight of those being shots on target. They also saw 60% of the posession and controlled large portions of the game. 

The former Champions League winners will want to compete at the top of the table this year and the signings of Romelu Lukaku, Diego Godin and Alexis Sanchez, as well as the appointment of Antonio Conte are all clear statements of intent. 

Cagliari look as though they are in for another season of struggle after a poor performance on their home turf on Saturday and their fans will not be expecting them to get a result against one of the strongest Inter Milan sides in recent years.
