Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Looks like little room for the reserves today as Inter Manager Mourinho prepares to put on a good show for the islanders of Sardinia.

Noticeables in the lineup are striker Mario Balotelli, midfielders Zanetti, Cambiasso, Viera, and defenders Samuel and Cordoba. Toldo will get the run out for Julio Cesar in goal and young Santon should be seen at right-back.

Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic will also make an appearance in the starting XI as he tries to consolidate a golden shoe victory over current leader Bologna forward Marco Di Vaio.

Cagliari forward Robert Acquafresca will partner with Jeda as he faces-off against his owner-club. Aquafresca has been on loan from Inter since the beginning of the season. Acquafresca was involved in the David Suazo transfer, which saw him move to Cagliari on a co-ownership deal. There, he has played 22 games and scored nine goals.
On 25 June 2021 it was confirmed that Inter had bought Cagliari’s 50% of Acquafresca, making them his sole club, however he will be loaned back to Cagliari for the 2008–09 season.
