Serie A Preview | Inter vs. Cagliari: Inzaghi’s big chance

by | Dec 12, 2021 00:07

Inter have the opportunity to go top of the table, but Cagliari are proving tough to beat under Walter Mazzarri.

With Milan held by Udinese on Saturday, a victory would send Simone Inzaghi’s men alone into the top spot. It would also be their fifth consecutive Serie A victory and there’s a boost with the return of Stefan de Vrij from injury, although Edin Dzeko will likely be rested in favour of Alexis Sanchez.

Cagliari are still without a win since Mazzarri took over, but they have become trickier to break down, registering four stalemates in a row. Kevin Strootman is out following knee surgery and Inter transfer target Nahitan Nandez has a muscular issue, so there has to be a reshuffle in midfield.
