Inter begin the weekend 11 points clear at the top of Serie A. It may only be eight if Milan win earlier in the weekend, but Inter will expect three points at home to 18th placed Cagilari. Inter have won their last ten league games and are unbeaten in 13. Midweek saw them beat Sassuolo 2-1 at home with Romelu Lukaku scoring in his third straight league match. Inter have won each of their last 11 home league matches, scoring at least twice in all but two of them. 12 of their 14 home games in Serie A have been won this season with just one loss to Milan last October. The reverse fixture against Cagliari saw them come from behind to win 3-1.
Cagliari are in the relegation zone and two points from safety but from a game more. It'll be level games by the time this game begins and Cagliari will hope that Torino don't extend the gap by avoiding defeat at 12th placed Udinese who have lost their last two league games. Cagliari are in poor form with their last three league games all producing defeats. They have only won five league games this season and conceded 50 goals. On their travels, Cagliari have just two league victories and both came at sides currently in the bottom four. Six of the last eight away games have been lost, another defeat is on the way here. Back Inter to win and be ahead at both half and full time
