Cagliari coach Walter Mazzari wants his team to play a proactive and aggressive style of football against Inter tomorrow even though he knows that they are a top side.

Speaking in a press conference, as reported by FCInterNews, the Italian tactician emphasized that his team will look to press the Nerazzurri high up the pitch and play attacking football when they visit the San Siro tomorrow.

The Rossoblu sit second from bottom of the table, with Mazzari having been unable to reverse the team’s poor form and get consistent results, especially wins, since replacing Leonardo Semplici early in the season.

However, there have been some encouraging signs for the Sardinian team, with recent draws showing that they are capable of taking the game to even strong opposition and can get a result that way.

Mazzari knows that facing the defending Italian champions in Milan will not be an easy match in which to pick up a much-needed win, but he is also confident that his team will make a point to push for the result that they need.

“We know that we are facing a massive side, one of the best, we’ll see how they play,” he stated.

“We will do everything to make life difficult for them,” he added. “we must have courage. We will attack them high up, press them and see if we can get anything that way.”

“The match is ninety minutes and they are very good at everything,” he acknowledged about Inter, “we will try to put make it hard for them with and without the ball.”

He added that “It will be difficult to win the ball against Inter, they are good at everything. I want to see my players press well and make fewer mistakes in transition, against a team like this you pay dearly for mistakes.”

Mazzarri stated that “Inter have the best squad in Serie A, they have few weaknesses. Brozovic, Barella, and Calhanoglu are used to having a a lot of possession so if we can make them run it will be difficult for them.”

And of Inter-linked midfielder Nahitan Nandez, the coach stated that “I hope that he will stay with us January, I hope that I can get him back for the match against Udinese.”

“Whoever plays in his place tomorrow will be less fast and less technically skilled,” he acknowledged. “We’ll see, it’s not easy to replace Nandez but I am confident in my team.”
