Nerazzurri are in need of points and vital victory. Andrea Stramaccioni’s team has won just 2 of their last 7 matches, so they must pick up all three points not to lose battle for the last Champions League spot.
Cagliari stands 11th in the Italian Serie A league table with 39 points from 31 games, having 10 wins, 9 draws and 12 losses so far this season. Their present form has seen 1 loss, 2 wins and 2 draws from last five games. Last five home matches the Islanders have finished with 2 draws and 3 straight wins. Last weekend they drew 0-0 away with Catania. The Rossoblu picked up a point at San Siro when they drew 2-2 with Inter earlier this season.
Inter stands 6th in Serie A league table with 50 points from 31 games, having won 15, drawn 5 and lost 11 so far this season. The Nerazzurri are 2 points behind 4th-paced Fiorentina and 8 points behind 3rd-placed Milan. Inter must gain points if they want to play in Euro competitions next season. Their present form has seen 2 wins and 3 losses. Last five away from home matches the Nerazzurri have finished with 2 defetas and 3 wins. Last weekend they were beaten at home 3-4 by Atalanta.
The hosts will play without injured Francesco Pisano and suspended Radja Nainggolan. Gabriele Perico is doubt for this game, while Albin Ekdal will play the starting line-up.
Andrea Stramaccioni can’t count on Antonio Cassano who leaved the previous game early due to injury, while Yuto Nagatomo is a doubt. Ezequiel Schelotto will miss this match after picking up a red card last weekend.
