In full confidence now and worn by a huge Radja Nainggolan, Cagliari corrected the Fiorentina (5-2) Sunday at the 12th day of Serie A, whose Sardis temporarily occupy the third place.
Cagliari remains on three consecutive victories and has been on an infernal pace for two months. The Sardinian team had indeed lost the first two games of the season, but since then, it has played ten matches without defeat, including seven successes.
The win on Sunday allows him to overtake Atalanta Bergamo and the two teams in Rome, three clubs that have yet to play this Sunday and can settle on the podium and continue to dream of Europe.
Faced with Fiorentina, in trouble in the absence of Franck Ribery, the great man of the match was Radja Nainggolan. Back in Sardinia after a tough season at Inter Milan, the former Red Devil handed out three assists and scored a goal with a fantastic strike.
Cagliari led 5-0 and was just relaxed late in the game, allowing the Fiorentina (8th) to limit the damage.
At 3 pm, Atalanta Bergamo will be in Genoa to face Sampdoria, while Lazio will host Lecce. At 18h, Roma will play in Parma and this 12th day will end in the evening with the match Juventus-AC Milan. Juve must prevail to regain control of the championship at the expense of Inter.
