Cagliari striker Alessandro Matri insists they should be higher on the table.

"When you look at how we have played, our position defies belief," the 23-year-old maintained with Cagliari bottom of the league.

"We are calm under Sonetti and we believe in ourselves, but we know that the game against Livorno this weekend is a big game.

"Sonetti likes me to swap positions with Robert Acquafresca regularly - that's the main difference so far for me."
