A pedestrian start to the match was interrupted when Alessandro Matri opened for Cagliari after 22 minutes but the goal was controversial as the scorer looked offside. The hosts doubled their lead minutes after the restart when Robert Acquafresca swept in a corner at the back post. The Sicilians got themselves back in contention two minutes later through yet another fine strike from playmaker Javier Pastore, but Cagliari reestablished their 2-goal cushion in whirlwind start to the second half as Davide Biondini struck a winner which took a slight deflection en route to goal.
