The 2019/20 Coppa Italia continues this week with the remaining round of 16 games. On Tuesday the 14th of January we have a match to look forward to between Inter Milan and Cagliari. The game will be played at the San Siro in Milan and the winner will progress to the quarter-final of the competition.

This will be the first match played by Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia this season having automatically qualified for this stage of the competition. You must go back to 2010/11 to find the last time Inter Milan lifted this trophy, which was also the last time they managed to reach the final. The priority may be Serie A this season but the Coppa Italia presents a great chance to win some silverware.

Inter Milan are on a run of 4 undefeated matches all of which have come in Serie A. In fact, you must go back to the 6th of October to find the last time Inter Milan lost a domestic game and that was against Juventus in Serie A.

Inter Milan reached the quarter final of the Coppa Italia last season only to lose via a penalty shootout at home against Lazio. Trends show they have won only one of their last 8 matches in the Coppa Italia without requiring extra time or penalties. Inter Milan lost five of those 8 games and will be hoping for a longer run in the Cup this season.

Cagliari come into the game having lost 2-0 at home against AC Milan on the weekend in Serie A. That was their 4th straight defeat, all of which have come in the league and despite having made a very good start to the season, Cagliari are beginning to find things tough. Having defeated Sampdoria 2-1 at home in the previous round of this competition, Cagliari have failed to win a game since, drawing one and losing 4.

They have won only one of their last 7 away matches and have failed to win any of the last 4 on the road. Cagliari have lost each of the last 2 away games at Udinese and Juventus, conceding 6 goals and scoring only one themselves. Cagliari have conceded 2 or more goals in each of their last 4 away matches and have kept just one clean sheet in their last 7 away games.

Team news and Inter Milan could be without Kwadwo Asamoah and Danilo D'Ambrosio who are working their way back from injury. Antonio Conte may decide to rest some first team players but will be keen to win his first trophy as manager.

Cagliari are definitely without Leonardo Pavoletti and Luca Ceppitelli who have a knee and foot injury respectively. There are also doubts over the fitness of Alessio Cragno, Daniele Ragatzu and Federico Mattiello.

Recent games between the two teams show Inter Milan have had the upper hand, winning 5 of the previous 6 meetings. The hosts should come out on top in this game and score at least 2 goals in the process.
