On Saturday, Cagliari and REG played out a 1-1 draw at the Sardegna Arena. Both Cagliari and REG came from defeats in their previous league games. Cagliari were hoping to get something from this game, following defeat to Ascoli while REG were beaten 3-2 in their previous match against Perugia. Cagliari are now in 10th place, with 15 points from 11 matches, while REG sit in 4th, with 19 points from 11.

Cagliari started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, with an early goal from Lapadula in the 2nd minute. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Gagliolo equalised for REG on the 24 minute mark to see out the first half 1-1. The second half ended with little further action at either end and goalless.

Substitutions for Cagliari included Viola, Deiola, Carboni, Pereiro and Obert for Makoumbou, Millico, Barreca, Rog and Altare, respectively. REG replaced Cicerelli, Cionek, Gori, Obi and Giraudo with Rivas, Gagliolo, Ménez, Fabbian and Di Chiara.

There were bookings for Di Pardo, Viola and Lapadula from Cagliari. For REG, Hernani, Gagliolo and Obi saw yellow.

Cagliari will next travel to FC Südtirol, while REG will face Genoa at home.
