    No joking.

    1. one of the back 3 must have a rest. Andreolli should be given a chance.
    2. Guarin needs a dickslap on bench.
    3. Kovacic to start.
    4. Icardi for Palacio.

    That's the least.

    A clean sheet on the road would be nice. Also, this gives us the opportunity to further scout Nainggolan.

    I thought that was a one year thing to play in Trieste. They still have to play near Slovenia?

    --- Campagnaro --------- Rano ------- Andreolli --------
    Jonathan ------- Taider -------- Cuchu -------- Pereira
    -------------- Kovacic --------- Belfodil ---------------
    ----------------------- Icardi -------------------------

    Juan needs to be benched for his stupid defending against Fiorentina. He often let Rano facing Joaquin on his left side. Either Mazzarri holds trust. Or rests him and let Andreolli play a game. Also no Guarin. Awfull performance and time to give Kova his shot. Same for Pereira.
    Also Ricky and Palacio seemed a bit fatigue. So time for Icardi and Belfodil to start.

    Predict a 0-2 though (Taider, Palacio [sub])

    Andreolli? I don't trust him...he is a walking brainfart

    We have a draw and a loss to Cagliari in Trieste...hopefully this time it will be different

    I remember going to the first one when Strama took over...mixed memories

    edit: Mazza confirmed Kova will start the match...

    One thing I learned from watching inter games is that they really struggle in sardenia, we should go with the best XI imho

    Can someone confirm if we're playing in Trieste or on the Sardenia island? I thought they were at a temporary stadium on the island after spending 2011/2013 in Trieste. I'm getting mixed reports when I google this match.

    Looking forward to seeing Kova start. Wonder who he'll replace? The logical choice seems Taider or Guarin but one wonders how much energy will be in Cambiasso's legs come Sunday. He's played 90 minutes in every game since the first week of the season. Fatigue will be an issue with him unless Mazzarri rotates him.

    We still have Kuzmanovic on the bench...

    Even though I dont see it happening, but if Cambiasso is tired, we will have to throw both Kuzmanovic and Kovacic into the starting.

    Still sweating from Fiorentina match, aye guys? That really was one hell of a match, a hard-fought victory. However, one trial done, coming another. The team should quickly leave the euphoria of the previous game, keeping the winning momentum by treating any match as final.

    This time we are playing another tricky away game against Cagliari. I’ve been following the team since last season, so I can say that I’m quite familiar with their way of playing. Here’s my analysis.


    Playing Style

    Basically, Cagliari are a team playing with one-touch-passing (sometime combined with quick counter), hence you should not expect seeing their players hold the ball more than five second. In another words, they rely on team movement rather than individual brilliance of certain players.

    At the beginning of the match, they usually field Pinilla as a prime target for direct passes from the midfield/back. But, as the game goes on, you can expect Ibarbo will replace his position, resulting their passing more concentrated on wide areas. Ibarbo himself is a player who can make catastrophe for any tiring defenders with his burst of speed, so our defense need to be concentrated for the whole 90 minutes (I have feeling Nagatomo will be his main prey, due to considerable difference in body size and power).


    Preferred Formation

    They usually use 4-3-1-2 formation. But when against a stronger team, they may switch to a more defensive variant of 4-3-2-1.


    Strengths

    Any opponents should have difficulties to win midfield battles against Cagliari, since they have a set of combative midfielders, consisting of Nainggolan-Conti-Ekdal. To make things worse, they are not only good at retrieving the ball, but each of them is a quality when it comes to deliver the ball forward or score the goal.

    Before the match against Fiorentina, I’d rather to fight them with our own version of fighter midfielders (Taider-Cambiasso-Guarin). But then I realized that this is a good opportunity for Kovacic to prove his quality in the team. As Guarin was having relatively poor performance in the previous match, Kova should start to take his place in first line-up.


    Weaknesses

    Their defense is nothing particularly special. I’ve always thought that their best defender, Davide Astori is poorer version of Ranocchia. Thus, maybe Palacio could exploit his speed advantages to create something out of it.


    Notable Players

    Marco Sau. There have not been players who are alike in characteristic. But, for the purpose of giving an impression, Sau is basically their Palacio. A striker with good mobility, but with lesser speed and stamina than his Argentinian compatriot. Not only that, as showed in the match against Milan this season, he has actually good curling shot ability from outside the area, meaning he’s as lethal in any area near the box.

    Radja Nainggolan. As I observed their game this season, I realized that this guy is being more and more influential in Cagliari’s passing game. Not surprising actually, since Nainggolan’s main strength lies on his accurate forward and diagonal pass. I picked him over Daniele Conti as my second choice due to his longer longevity, making him a more dangerous player across 90 minutes. Beware of his first time shot, it’s a top notch.

    Daniele Conti. Their Il Capitano. Whenever watching him plays, I’ve always thought to myself,”Man, this guy, had he reached his peaked in younger age; he might have been a starting material in a big team”. Playing as a deep-lying playmaker, Conti is their poorer version of Pirlo, as well as Cagliari’s central reference when it comes to spraying passes to wide areas. He’s also their main set-piece taker. His well-placed freekick goal against Sampdoria is a proof of his quality in this aspect.

    Very difficult this one.. I think Cagliari will be the Catania of last season, gotta keep an eye on Sau.

    This is going to be a real test, I am quite fearful of Sau.

    And we are probably quite drained from our last game. Some rotation is probably needed.
