Serie A: Inter strikes four over Cagliari to move on top of Roma

Inter Milan moved up to third in Serie A over Roma with a thumping 4-0 win over Cagliari.

Inter — who had failed to register a single goal in their last three matches — netted within three minutes when Joao Cancelo’s inswinging free kick went straight in.

Team captain Mauro Icardi then scored his 25th league goal of the season before setting up Marcelo Brozovic for Inter’s third and Ivan Perisic scored late on from another well-worked free-kick.

The hosts were barely tested, with Cagliari not registering a single shot.

The only sour note for Inter was an injury to midfielder Roberto Gagliardini, who was taken off on a stretcher off before half-time with a muscle problem.

Internazionale moved above Roma in the Serie A table as they look to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 2011.
