Cagliari overwhelmed 4-1, the adventure in the Italian Cup starts well


All easy and almost perfect for Inter, that starts as best the adventure in the Italian Cup could not overwhelm Cagliari with a dry 4-1 in the race valid for the round of 16. The game for the nerazzurri starts immediately with the goal after 23 seconds of Romelu Lukaku who takes advantage of a wrong backpass of Christian Oliva and skewers Robin Olsen for the first time. From now on, Inter enter bulldozer mode, demolishing the fragile certainties of the formation of Rolando Maran: doubles Borja Valero at 22 ‘, in the second half the music does not change and still Lukaku finds the brace on the 49th after having been canceled by an offside goal in the first half. After the third goal, Cagliari shakes a little, finds the net of hope with Oliva but after a few minutes Andrea Ranocchia stands out above all and finds the poker that closes the accounts. In the final, even a few chances for the five, but in the end it’s fine. Now the Nerazzurri of Antonio Conte await the winner of the match between Fiorentina and Atalanta.
