Cagliari coach Claudio Ranieri feels that this evening’s Serie A draw with Inter Milan is “worth its weight in gold” for his team.

The veteran coach spoke to Italian broadcaster DAZN, via FCInterNews, after guiding the Rossoblu to yet another impressive result in their bid to avoid relegation.

Cagliari have made a habit of getting big results when they need them most this season.

And a point away to runaway Serie A leaders Inter certainly qualifies as one of those.

That is especially the case considering that the Nerazzurri had gone ahead twice during the match.

But Cagliari showed the same thing they have throughout the season. The Sardinians were able to stay in the match the whole way through. And then they found the goals they needed in the decisive moments.

Ranieri: Point Vs Inter “Worth Its Weight In Gold” For Cagliari

Cagliari are now four points clear of the drop zone.

The Rossoblu are still undeniably very much in the relegation battle.

But having clear daylight separating themselves from the bottom three places is certainly a boost in confidence for Ranieri and his players.

Cagliari had beaten Atalanta in their previous match. And now, they have prevented the team who had previously won 26 of their 31 league matches from taking three points.

Cagliari’s next match comes against Juventus.

And few would doubt the Sardinians’ ability to get another statement result. Particularly playing on their home ground.

Ranieri remarked that “We still have to keep our foot on the gas.”

“Right away we’re facing another big team,” the Cagliari coach noted.

“This point is worth its weight in gold for us,” Ranieri said of the draw against Inter.

The veteran coach, formerly of Leicester City and Chelsea, noted that “There was a real risk of us taking zero points against Atalanta and Inter.”

“But I told the guys to fight.”

“We have to create the situations that can give us a chance.”

“The team played with motivation, but kept their heads,” Ranieri said. “They held onto the ball when they needed to, and then pushed forward when we wanted to take something more.”
