Cagliari Vs. Pescara: Final Score 1-2, Pescara Record Second Consecutive Win

Vladimir Weiss scored the winner once again for Pescara, as the visitors pushed Cagliari even deeper into trouble.

After looking absolutely dreadful in their first three matches, Pescara are now unbeaten in their last three -- and, with their win over Cagliari on Sunday afternoon, have actually won their last two matches. Granted, the wins came over the two worst sides in Serie A, but I'm pretty sure the dolphins will take whatever they can get.

As for Cagliari, well, they did a great job of proving that having supporters at the Is Arenas makes very little difference in their play. In fact, the rossoblu might have preferred last week's automatic 3-0 loss to AS Roma, as at least they didn't need to exert themselves. At this point, it's quite likely they'll be spending next season in Serie B.

Pescara will likely have a roller-coaster ride of it, but they looked decent in Sardinia today. Christian Terlizzi, back from a three-match ban, put the visitors in front in the 50th minute. His free kick rattled around the Cagliari defence like a bat in a belfry, leaving Michael Agazzi at a loss.

The second goal, scored in the 76th minute, came courtesy of Vladimir Weiss, his second in as many matches. And what a pretty one once again. The Slovak chested down the pass before sending his sharp shot flying past Agazzi. Perhaps he should be starting, Giovanni Stroppa?

Cagliari did manage to pull one back, but needed a penalty to do so. Terlizzi, trying his best to stop a shot from Radja Nainggolan, decided using his hands might be a bright idea. Mauricio Pinilla stepped up to the spot and sent Mattia Perin the wrong way, claiming Cagliari's third goal of the season, which is one more than the number of points they've earned.
