After starting the year with two defeats, the Sardinian team added seven wins and three draws in the next ten days and strengthened one more week his position in the Champions League zone, momentarily surpassing Rome (plays this Sunday against Parma).
Under the rain of the Sardinia Arena stadium, Cagliari put his victory on track with three goals in the first half. The Croatian Mario Rog scored 1-0 in the 16th minute to Nainggolan's pass, Fabio Pisacane extended distances in the 26 'lead and Simeone put the 3-0 past the half hour match.
El Cholito was excited at the celebration by dedicating it to Davide Astori, his former teammate at Fiore, and who also played on his current team, who died at age 31 in March 2018. He scored it with a great cue after Nainggolan center and he scored his third goal for the Tuscan team, in which he played in the last two seasons.
He continued pushing the Sardinian team and Nainggolan, after offering his third assist of the day for the 4-0 of Joao Pedro, culminated his great day with a goal from 25 meters that determined a forceful 5-0 after the first 65 minutes.
Fiorentina's reaction came when it was too late to qualify for an insufficient benefit and had the signature of the Serbian Dusan Vlahovic, who scored a double in the quarter-hour final.
He had never scored so many points after the first twelve days the Cagliari, who dreams of returning to play a European competition that he has been missing since 1993.
