Inter to set up Milan derby title decider 

Inter are closing in on their 20th Serie A title and they could seal the deal in the Milan derby next weekend.

Simone Inzaghi’s side currently sit 14 points clear at the top of the Serie A table and it is more of a question of when they are going to win the scudetto this season. If they beat Cagliari this weekend, then it sets up the opportunity to rub their fiercest rivals’ noses in their triumph and be crowned champions against Milan a week on Monday, in an away game on their own ground.

They have collected have collected 82 points in Serie A this season (W26 D4 L1), dropping just 11 points all campaing and another win this weekend would see them become the first ever team to reach 85 points after 32 games in a Serie A season in the three points for a win era. Not only that, but if they find the back of the net, they will set a new club record for consecutive games with a goal in Serie A (40). Furthermore, Simone Inzaghi could become just the third manager to see a side score in 40 matches in a row in the history of the Italian top-flight, after Antonio Conte (43 with Juventus between February 2013 and March 2014) and Massimiliano Allegri (44 with Juventus between October 2016 and December 2017).

Standing in their way are Cagliari, who have picked up a bit of form in the league recently, winning three and drawing three of their last seven league games (L1). However, only Frosinone (four) have collected fewer points than Cagliari away from home (seven) in Serie A this season (W1 D4 L10) and they have a terrible recent record against Inter, losing each of their last five Serie A matches against them by an aggregate score of 13-2.
