On Matchday 26 of Italian Serie A, there will be a match between Juventus and SSC Napoli. Champions against vice champions, league leaders against “pursuers”. However, tension is not guaranteed given the table situation (Juventus are 13 points clear of the Ancelotti team).
However, Napoli also has a comfortable lead over the competition. While the top match decides the 26th matchday, the third in the table opens the matchday on Friday evening. In Sardinia there is a duel between Cagliari vs Inter Milan!
Today’s Betting Tips Cagliari vs Inter Milan
The Nerazzurri have been within striking distance of Napoli for a long time, but in recent weeks things have not really worked out. Instead of fighting for the vice-championship, the focus is now to defend a top four place. Missing the Champions League would probably mean the final Spalletti off. The hosts from Sardinia are currently ranked 14th in the table with 24 points and six points clear of the first relegation zone. Points against Inter Milan could undoubtedly be called “bonus points”. Between Cagliari vs Inter Milan are offered on the tip 1 / X odds of over 2.00. The start of the match at the Sardegna Arena is on Friday at 20:30.
Cagliari – Statistics & Current Form
For the Elf from Sardinia, relegation has the highest priority. Accordingly, the club management with the current 14th place in the table can be quite satisfied. The advantage of six points is not big, but quite comfortable. Cagliari Calcio was able to lay the foundation for the current situation on the table at home in the Sardegna Arena. In twelve home games, 18 of the 24 counters were collected. Only the SSC Napoli and Atalanta Bergamo celebrated a close success in Sardinia (each 1: 0). In the remaining games the Maran-Elf scored points. While the services at home are quite impressive, Cagliari is a welcome guest on the Italian mainland. The only away win Cagliari celebrated on Matchday 3 against Atalanta Bergamo. In the twelve remaining games remained the 14th Away victory denied.
Given the good home record in the game between Cagliari and Inter Milan is a prediction on a point win the home side quite obvious. Above all, the odds of over 2.00 appear to be extremely interesting. However, it must be mentioned that the services in the calendar year 2019 are anything but convincing. Two weeks ago, Cagliari Calcio celebrated the first – and so far only – competitive victory in 2019. The home game against promoted Parma Calcio was won 2-1. In the six remaining competitive games this year, the Maran-Elf reached only a draw against FC Empoli and suffered five defeats – all without their own goal.
On the basis of these statistics, a tip on a point win by the home side is a bit risky. The game is made more difficult by the failures of a strong trio. Ragnar Klavan, Lucas Castro and Valter Birsa will all be unavailable. Three veterans who stand for a lot of quality. Although the trio has been missing for some time, these players can not be adequately replaced.
Expected formation of Cagliari:
Cragno – Pellegrini, Ceppitelli, Pisacane, Padoin – Deiola, Cigarini, Ionita – Barella – Pavoletti, Doratiotto

Inter Milan – Statistics & Current Form
In the season 2010/11 Inter Milan celebrated the triumph in Coppa Italia. For the successful Nerazzurri this was actually the last title in the club’s history. The wait will probably but in all likelihood find in this season no end. The UEFA Europa League is the last chance for the Spalletti team. The Nerazzurri finally started again in the premier class, but had to compete in spite of two victories to kick off finally the transition to the Europa League. As the next opponent of Eintracht Frankfurt, Inter Milan has become the focus of attention in the German media.
The Milanese have written enough headlines in recent weeks. Sporty positive but these were rather rare. Currently dominated ex-captain and top scorer Mauro Icardi these headlines. The Argentinean top striker delivers a public mud fight regarding his contract extension. His counselor – and wife – Wanda wanted a doubling of salary. Icardi has since been deprived of the captaincy and was missing in the last games entirely. Officially, because of an “injury”, but nobody really believes that. His compatriot Lautaro Martinez is now required to score the necessary goals for the CL qualification. With only two wins in the last six league games, the lead on the competition melted. The table-fifth AS Roma has now only three points less than the Nerazzurri.
“But we still have to acknowledge our performance against a Fiorentina team that is currently in good shape. We’re on the right track, but we have to keep the players focused. ” – Luciano Spalletti
Although a victory was missed in Fiorentina last weekend in Tuscany, a rise in form is to be seen. Only in the 101st minute (!) The Viola could compensate for a highly controversial hand penalty. Inter showed a pleasing offensive football and was not discouraged by setbacks (unfortunate own goal after a few seconds). The Icardi headlines currently have no negative impact on athletic performance. Nevertheless, Spalletti mourned two lost points, the more important will be the victory on Sardinia on Friday. For an away win in the game between Cagliari and Inter Milan, odds of 1.78 are offered.

Handanovic – Dalbert, Skriniar, de Vrij, D’Ambrosio – Vecino, Brozovic – Perisic, Nainggolan, Politano – Lautaro Martinez
