Inter will play their first away fixture of Serie A vs Cagliari tonight. The Nerazzurri got a comfortable 2-0 win over Monza at home. Meanwhile, their hosts had to settle for a point on their return to the Italian top flight. Inter will be hoping for a better Serie A campaign this season with a more experienced squad. They finished third last campaign, and Inzaghi would like to go for the title in his third season at the helm.
Lautaro Martinez’s brace helped Inter to register three points in their first game. Arnautovic impressed after coming from the bench, as he set up the goal for his captain. Meanwhile, Cagliari achieved a dramatic comeback to Serie A under Claudio Ranieri. The veteran manager also won against Palermo in Coppa Italia and has managed to get a point against Torino in the away fixture.
Cagliari vs Inter Serie A team news, tactics, and prediction
The Nerazzurri have signed a couple of brilliant players that elevate their squad. Frattesi and Thuram are exciting prospects, and Cuadrado adds flair to the right flank. However, Inter needs a couple of more acquisitions to cover all their bases. Skriniar left on a free transfer and Inter have not signed a replacement for him yet. Also, Acerbi is struggling with injury, so Inter are thin at the back. Inter will have an unchanged eleven, with Cuadrado, Frattesi, Bisseck, and Arnautovic making way in the second half.
Meanwhile, Ranieri will miss Marco Mancosu, Gianluca Lapadula, and Marko Rog. Inter will have to think of ways to break down the rigid defense of Cagliari.
The Nerazzurri should get three points as their record is excellent against the hosts. Cagliari will face an uphill task, something they are familiar with, and can get a goal in transition.
Cagliari 1-3 Inter Milan.
