Cagliari sit dangerously close to the relegation zone after four consecutive Serie A defeats.
A valiant 3-2 loss to Roma was followed by a disappointing 4-1 defeat at home to Napoli, before going down 2-1 to Benevento despite scoring first.
Their fourth straight loss came in a 1-0 defeat away to Fiorentina. Cagliari had a golden chance to open the scoring in the 37th minute. Despite striker Joao Pedro striking his penalty well, he could not get past Fiorentina goalkeeper Bartłomiej Drągowski.
Cagliari were also in Coppa Italia action midweek. They bowed out of the competition in a 3-1 loss to Atalanta in the Round of 16. Despite Cagliari equalising in the 55th minute through midfielder Riccardo Sottil, they were unable to keep up with Atalanta.
