After a solid start to the season, Cagliari have gone into meltdown, failing to win any of their last 10 games across all competitions, including a recent run of five consecutive defeats. Their most recent setback was a Coppa Italia exit at the hands of Atalanta, while Eusebio Di Francesco’s men have been dragged into the relegation dog-fight.
To make matters worse, Cagliari have failed to win 15 of their last 16 home matches against AC Milan and another slip-up here could land them in serious trouble with the teams around them in the Serie A table.
Even disregarding their record on the road at Cagliari, Milan will make the trip to Sardinia in confident mood. The Rossoneri have recovered well from their first Serie A defeat of the season (3-1 vs Juventus) to beat Torino 2-0, while they defeated the same opposition on penalties last time out to reach the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.
Pioli’s side have the third-best defensive record and the fourth-most prolific attack in the Italian top-flight this season, showing their proficiency at both ends of the pitch. They’ll be an incredible test of Cagliari’s mettle with both sides needing the points for very different reasons.
- Cagliari (vs Atalanta): Vicario; Zappa, Walukiewicz, Ceppitelli, Tripaldelli; Nandez, Marin, Caligara; Sottil, Tramoni; Pavoletti.
- AC Milan (vs Torino): Tătărușanu; Kalulu, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Dalot; Calabria, Tonali; Castillejo, Diaz, Leao*; Ibrahimovic.
Marko Rog, Ragnar Klavan and Paolo Farago are all injured while Nahitan Nandez is suspended, but Radja Nainggolan is expected to return to the starting XI.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his first start since mid-November against Torino in the cup last time out and should retain his place here. Pioli will be without Ismael Bennacer, Alexis Saelemaekers, Rade Krunic and Matteo Gabbia through injury, while Rafael Leao is suspended.

After being out since mid-November with a hamstring injury, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to action over the past week, first coming off the bench for the final few minutes in Milan’s 2-0 Serie A win over Torino before coming off the bench against the Turin club in the Coppa Italia on Tuesday. He, of course, entered the pitch in the former in true Zlatan style, too, showing off his athleticism:

Ibrahimovic was withdrawn early in the second half in the midweek cup match, and one can only assume that Pioli had this trip to Cagliari and his need for the Swedish veteran to stay healthy in mind.
Despite spending just 534 minutes on the pitch, Ibrahimovic has scored 10 Serie A goals so far this season, behind only Cristiano Ronaldo (15), Romelu Lukaku and Ciro Immobile (both 12), while his record of six goals and three assists in 12 career appearances against Cagliari is bound to strike fear into the opposition defence.
Ibrahimovic has made a career out of proving doubters wrong and even at 39 years old, he’ll thrive on doing that once more as he returns to full fitness.Serie A 2020/21 recent form:
