Cagliari and Gianfranco Zola take on Inter Milan on Monday night with both teams in need of a win. Cagliari are really in need of a win to move out of the relegation zone. Gianfranco Zola will want his side to maximiise their point opportunities at home as in Serie A winning away from home is tricky business. In the reverse fixture way back inSeptember Cagliari actually came away from the San Siro with a 4-1 win against Inter a hattrick from Ekdal inspiring them to victory. Ekdal, Sau and Farias are the key men offensively for Cagliari who actually have a decent home record of late winning two of their last three.
Inter Milan have gone whole sale changes with Roberto Mancini coming in and bringing in a tonne of players during the trasnfer window. Shaqiri and Podolski are two of the key signings but it was holding on to Icardi that was the biggest achievement of the transfer window. Icardi and Palacio are goign to be the key strikers for Mancini and inter for the rest of the season and the two have been in fine scoring form of late. With Palacio finally waking up from a season long slumber to net three in his last two games.
Overall this one should be a dog fight. I'#m certain that Zola will set up Cagliari to not concede but given that Inter Milan have got their own defensive problems this could be a case of the best form of defence is to attack. I'm going to take the overs as I see Inter with alot of firepower here and after scoring ten in their last three I think they will look to continue that type of form. Cagliari will have to throw caution to the wind to compete but I think the home side may well be able to do just that and with Ekdal, Sau and Farias they have players capable of scoring.
