Inter Milan needs an away win against mid-table Cagliari Calcio to solidify their hold on a Serie A top four place, in the Round 26 opening match.

Coming off of last weekend’s deflating draw with Fiorentina, which saw Inter Milan dropping points despite building a commanding 3-1 lead after 52 minutes, per Soccerway, the Nerazzurri cannot afford anything less than the full three points against mid-table Cagliari Calcio, if Inter wants to secure their third-place position. Or if they want to hold on to a top four UEFA Champions League qualification spot at all. AC Milan and SSC Napoli sit just two and three points behind them, respectively. That puts Inter in a must-win position when they travel to Sardinia for the match that will live stream to open Serie A Round 26.

Once again, Inter’s Argentine striker, Mauro Icardi, will remain on the bench with a knee injury — though it appears that the greater injury may be to Icardi’s bruised ego. The team’s goal leader has been in a prolonged contract dispute with Inter Milan management, as The World Game reported.

“I do not know at this moment if there is love and respect towards Inter and towards me by some who make the decisions,” Icardi wrote on his Instagram account on Thursday, in his first public statements on the dispute. “I do not know if there is somebody’s desire to act and resolve things only and exclusively for the sake of Inter.”
