Next Match: at home to Genoa, December 08
Cagliari coach Diego Lopez was delighted with his team's reaction in last weekend's 2-2 draw against Sassuolo. The Sardinian outfit were 2-0 down after 19 minutes but battled back to earn a point. The outcome lifted the islanders to 14th position, three points clear of the drop zone. "I liked how my team responded in the second half," Lopez said. "It's an important point because not only did we come back from what looked to be a certain defeat but we did it against a team that like us is battling to avoid the drop this season." Cagliari have not lost in their last three league games and host Genoa on Sunday.
