Cagliari’s recent form hasn’t been something to write home about. The Sardinians lost four out of their last five league games and are currently sitting in 14th place. Cagliari are six points away from the relegation zone and they need to start picking up points if they want to avoid entering the relegation battle. Unfortunately for them, Inter are one of their bogey teams recently. Cagliari have lost the last four times these two sides met and they’ll have to produce something special to avoid defeat on Friday.
On the other hand, Inter have been on the rise lately. They won four out of their last games in all competitions, and the only draw was against Fiorentina after a controversial penalty deep in added time. The battle for Champions League places this season is going to be between Inter, Milan, and Roma. One of these teams will probably have to miss out on playing in the Champions League next season unless Napoli collapse. Inter are currently 3rd in the league and they seem to play better after the whole Icardi debacle.

Cagliari have had a lot of injury problems recently, and there are a lot of questions over who will play against Inter. Ragnar Klavan and Lucas Castro will certainly miss the game due to injuries. Valter Birsa, Alberto Cerri, Kiril Despodov, Fabrizio Cacciatore, and Cyril Thereau are all doubts for the match and their involvement will probably depend on late fitness tests.
Inter haven’t got any new injuries to their side since their last match against Fiorentina. Sime Vrsaljko is still out with a knee injury, while Mauro Icardi’s situation is still unknown. However, even if the Argentinian striker isn’t really injured, it’s unlikely he’ll start after the recent controversy.
Cagliari are usually a tough side to beat, especially at home. They’ve lost only two times at home this season, but their form has worsened and they don’t play with the same confidence as they did at the start of the season. In addition, the injuries also played a big role in their recent misfortunes. Inter are determined to qualify for the Champions League but to do that they need to beat teams like Cagliari. Inter won six of the last seven fixtures against this opposition and are the third-best team in the league when playing away from home. The most reasonable thing to do here seems to bet on an Inter win at Bet365.Prediction: Inter to win @ 4/5 at Bet365
