Match Preview

  • Having dropped points in four of their last six Serie A (SA) matches (W2, D4), Inter Milan have fallen four points behind leaders Juventus. Any hopes of a revival will have to override their recent home league form, with Inter dropping points in four of their last seven SA home games (W3, D3, L1).
  • Inter’s penchant for scoring first remains intact, with the ‘Nerazzurri’ having done so in 16 of 20 SA games, going on to win 12 and lose none. Inter have managed 15 SA first-half clean sheets this season, with 64.71% of their SA goals against (11 of 17) coming during the second half. Inter also remain top of the SA first-half table with a W13, D5, L2 record.
  • Expected to lose heavily, Cagliari are in freefall, losing four of their last five SA fixtures (D1, L4) and remaining without a win since matchday 14. Six of Cagliari’s last nine SA matches saw over 3.5 total match goals, which has been the case with 45% of their SA matches overall (nine of 20).
  • Cagliari’s struggles continue on the road, but they have scored exactly two goals in four of their last six SA away matches, with three finishing 2-2. Furthermore, Cagliari have conceded at least twice in each of their last nine SA games and exactly twice in seven.
  • Players to watch: Romelu Lukaku has been Inter’s last scorer in seven of the last nine SA games where he has scored. Meanwhile, Cagliari have won four of five SA games to see Giovanni Simeoneget on the scoresheet.
  • Stat attack: Inter are yet to concede a set-piece goal this league season.
  • Ten of Cagliari’s 31 SA goals against have been conceded beyond the 80th minute.
  • The last six SA H2Hs have seen the winner leading at the break.
