Serie A Midfielder Club Review – Cagliari

Cagliari finished the Serie A in the 11th spot which was quite an achievement considering they had just won promotion to the top tier of Italian football.

Cagliari had suffered relegation following the 2014-15 Serie A season, but they managed to bounce straight back into the Italian top tier after winning the Serie B title.

The team from Sardinia was plagued with a leaky defence all throughout the season and conceded 76 goals. However, going forward, they managed to score 55 goals.

In midfield, Joao Pedro and Mauricio Isla were the standout performers for Cagliari. Let’s take a look at how Cagliari midfielders performed over the course of the season.

Pedro missed a sizeable part of the season with a fibula fracture, but he did manage a total of 22 appearances, including five appearances from the bench. He scored seven goals and provided five assists for a total of 34 points. The 25-year-old, who was available for 6m in the market, also picked up a red card in the January defeat to AS Roma. He ended the season with a P/P score of 5.5

Isla was a regular fixture in Cagliari’s side and picked up 34 appearances. He scored one goal and provided seven assists for a point total of 15. The Chilean midfielder, who was available for 6.5m in the market, also picked up nine yellow cards during the season. At the end of the season, his P/P score reads 2.2.
