Cagliari beats relegated Parma 4-0 in Serie A, offering hope it can climb out of the drop zone


CAGLIARI, Sardinia — Cagliari cruised past already relegated Parma 4-0 in Serie A on Monday, offering hope that the Sardinian club can climb out of the drop zone.

For its first win at home in more than three months, Cagliari quickly took control with a goal from Sweden international Albin Ekdal three minutes in.

Brazilian Diego Farias added another in the 14th and winger Paul-Jose M'Poku made it 3-0 before halftime.

M'Poku also set up a goal for Croatian forward Duje Cop in the 64th.

Cagliari is third from bottom, six points from safety and 17th-place Atalanta with four matches remaining.

Crisis-hit Parma is last.
