Cagliari were able to follow up their 2-0 win against Crotone on Sunday by winning 1-0 against Bologna on Wednesday.

“I liked the lads a lot, I had recommended a change of approach compared to Crotone,” Semplici said at the post-match press conference.

“In the second half, we suffered but risked doubling our lead too. Credit must be given to these lads, we are confident.

“It was important to give continuity to the performance and results.”

Although Cagliari were able to leapfrog Torino in the relegation battle, Torino still have two games in hand.

“Our safety depends on us,” Semplici said. “I have found great availability, these guys are showing me that they are more men than players.

“With these moral qualities and technical abilities, we have the possibility to save ourselves.

“I gave them a couple of principles in the non-possession phase. We haven’t done anything yet, but we are achieving the results.

“There have been two games where we don’t concede and win. The guys are understanding what I want, even if it’s still early.”

Daniele Rugani

, who scored the opener for Cagliari in the 19th minute, suffered an injury and was not able to continue after the break.

“He suffered a blow, and we will evaluate tomorrow with the medical staff.”
