Inter Milan vs Cagliari 15 December: Coppa Italia Preview and Predictions
15 December 2015/ 1500ET
Inter Milan are at the top of the Italian Serie A table and they are playing some good football. This team has really turned it on this season and they will want to continue their good work midweek as they host Cagliari in their Coppa Italia round of 16 match. This is an important game for both clubs since winning this tournament is now a real possibility.
Inter Milan had a big win this weekend as the smashed Udinese 4-0 away from home. This performance showed what they are capable of and they will want to keep it up midweek. Inter are reliant on their midfield as players such as Perisic set up great opportunities for their striker, Icardi and Jovetic. This team is working like a well-oiled machine and they are going to be tough to stop.
Cagliari are also playing well but being in Serie B means that they are not used to facing teams like Inter Milan. The away side will know as they come to the San Siro that they are nowhere near as good as their opposition and I think that Cagliari might look to play very defensively.
Overall I think that Inter Milan will win this match with a lot of ease. They are a great side and they have found a winning rhythm. If Cagliari want to stand a chance they will need to shut down Icardi but this is very unlikely considering how well he is playing at the moment. I see this being a very one sided affair and honestly the handicap is set too low. Inter Milan take one is paying over 2.00 which is a great price so that is where my money will be on.
