Cagliari vs. AC Milan Match Analysis and Prediction

With a step closer to clinching a cup of success in their midweek endeavors, AC Milan will turn their attention to struggling Cagliari this week. The match schedules for Monday at Sardegna Arena, with a kickoff at 10:45 pm.

The Sardinian side currently sit two points off relegation battles while leading a ten winless streak in Serie A. The side currently suffers five defeats across all competitions. AC Milan comes off a 0-0 draw to Torino in the Coppa Italia.

Milan jumped from their disappoint loss to their Scudetto challengers, Juventus with consecutive wins over Torino in Serie A and league cup. Zlatan Ibramohivic made a historic win after two months of no action to secure a spot in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals against rivals Inter Milan.

Zlatan hopes to pick up from where he left before the injury after netting ten goals after seven matches. There seems to be a plot to return Mario Mandzukic to the club after an unsuccessful spell overseas.

Hakan Calhanoglu is expected to make a comeback to the starting XI after a recent ankle problem. He has one goal and six assists so far this season but his contract situation continues to linger.

The poor run of form for Cagliari plunged the side to 16th on the table with threats of facing a relegation battle. Their defensive woes continue to be a major pain for Eusebio Di Francesco.
