Cagliari Calcio, which was still relegated in Serie A, sold an extent to the reigning master Inter. Apart from a few pressure phases with too few top -class carets, a surprise success against the Milanese could not be seriously worked on, when the meantime of Lykogiannis (53rd minute) did not help.
In short: The individual quality of the Nerazzurri, which had been under victory pressure due to the 2-0 win by leader Milan against Atalanta, was simply too high. With more consistent exploitation of opportunities, especially Lautaro Martinez, more than a 3-1 would have been in the end.
Lautaro executed twice class
In the end, however, it was also enough that the defense in the crucial moments kept the access and that Darmian scored after an initially revealed hit by Skriniar (11th, handball after VAR intervention) after Perisic flank to 1: 0.
As a result, Lautaro was then on the spot twice in front of the Sardinian box and thus in front of keeper Crago. The Argentinian initially executed an interim 2-0 (51st) after a long blow and after good physical effort against altar, before the striker in the final phase with a lifter after a beautiful assist by Joker Gagliardini recorded his 21st goal of the season (84.).
The championship decision was also postponed to the coming week if Inter was definitely against the already saved club Sampdoria Genoa on the 38th and last Series A game day and at the same time on a slip from Rival Milan
Sassuolo Calcio has to hope. For the club from Cagliari standing on a relegation zone, the rescue is still possible.
