New Cagliari boss Davide Ballardini will probably be without key man Andrea Cossu for the Week 12 trip to Inter.
The attacking midfielder, who has played in all 10 of the club’s Serie A games so far this term, has picked up a slight muscle problem.
The Sardinian outfit will attempt to get him fit for the San Siro tie, but, as it stands, he seems unlikely to recover in time.
Cossu will thus probably return to first team action in Week 13 when the Rossoblu entertain Bologna at the Stadio Sant’Elia.
Cossu, an Italian international, is expected to be a vital cog in the plans of Ballardini after he replaced Massimo Ficcadenti on the bench this week.
