Suspended for three games after pushing a referee-assistant at the end of the match lost by Fiorentina against Lazio Rome (2-1) on October 27, Franck Ribery was serving this Saturday his last match suspension. The Frenchman could do nothing to avoid the heavy defeat (5-2) of his team on the field of a Cagliari in good shape, on behalf of the 12th day of Serie A.
On fire, the Sardis scored five goals in 65 minutes, thanks to Rog, Pisacane, Simeone, Joao Pedro and finally Nainggolan, before Vlahovic reduced the mark twice. Thanks to this new success, Rolando Maran's men climb onto the podium of calcio with 24 points, pending the results of the two Roman formations in particular. The Viola remains 8th with 16 units on the clock.
