Inter – Cagliari Tips & Predictions For Today, April 17, 2018.
League: Italy – Serie A
Tip: 1 Half Over 0.5 Goals
Match Result: 4:0(1:0) WON!!!
|In a season where they have flattered to deceive far too many times, Inter (fifth) face an acid test of their Champions League qualification credentials when they host a Cagliari side (14th) still not a certainty in the Serie A (SA) survival race.|
|Statistics say that Inter have lost only once in their last seven matches (W3, D3, L1), but in truth they have let far too many opportunities go by this season. A side that should have been sitting pretty in third is now trying hard not to come last in a mini-race with Lazio and Roma.|
|The hosts, though, have not given anything away in those seven matches conceding just one goal and scoring ten. They have drawn blanks in four of these games and haven’t scored in three games.|
|That is not good news for the visitors who have only one win on the road in their last six trips (W1, D2, L3). Their weekend win over Udinese (2-1) helped stop a three-match losing streak, but the threat of relegation is still a distinct possibility as only five points separate them from the bottom three.|
|Cagliari have been one of the low-scoring sides with their 13 goals better than only three sides in away games. Inter will surely be anticipating another clean sheet, because they have conceded the second least goals (11) in home games.|
|Players to watch: When Inter last scored a goal, it was Ivan Perišić who had a goal and two assists. Can he spring back to life?|
|Cagliari’s Leonardo Pavoletti is scoring goals at the right time as was seen in his strike against Udinese.|
|Stat attack: Inter have lost only one of their last five (W4) encounters against Cagliari, but are winless in their last four home league encounters (D2, L2).|
|Only four sides have conceded more than Cagliari this season.|
