Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s Serie A game at Unipol Domus pits together Cagliari and Inter, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. The Rossoblu are fighting hard to secure the elite division survival, while the Nerazzurri aim to keep their Scudetto hopes alive. Cagliari showed character in a 1-1 draw with Salernitana, with defender Giorgio Altare scoring the equalizer in the stoppage time.
First-choice goalkeeper Boris Radunovic is banned for the match, while Nandez continues to miss out with injury. Simone Inzaghi’s troops, on the other hand, aim to build on a come-from-behind 4-2 win over Empoli. A lively contest is on the cards in Sardinia, but we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing visitors who are more of a team than Cagliari. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of Sunday’s showdown.
Highlighted Player (Kevin Strootman):
After starting his senior career at Sparta Rotterdam, Kevin Strootman joined fellow Dutch side Utrecht in 2011. The defensive midfielder, who was born on February 13, 1990 in Ridderkerk, Netherlands, then moved to PSV where he established himself as a first-team regular. Strootman was then spotted by AS Roma scouts and in 2013 he decided to take a step forward in his career by joining the Giallorossi.
On March 9, 2014, the Dutch footballer sustained a serious knee injury that made him miss the remainder of the 2013/2014 Serie A season. He missed the 2014 FIFA World Cup as well, but he returned to contention on November 9, 2014. Kevin Strootman played for Roma until August 28 when he signed a five-year contract with Olympique Marseille.
Speaking of his international career, Strootman made his Netherlands debut against Austria in 2011 and he scored his first ever goal for the Dutch national team in Euro 2012 qualifier against Finland. Kevin Strootman’s preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Inter):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
