Cagliari returned to their home ground in style with a 2-1 win over 10-man Catania on Saturday. It was the Sardinians' second victory of the season.
Stadio Sant'Elia had not hosted a match since April 2012 because of reconstruction work. Playing in front of only 5,000 fans as work continued, Cagliari overcame an early deficit behind goals from Victor Ibarbo and Mauricio Pinilla.
Catania went ahead in the fifth minute via Gonzalo Bergessio's header. Ibarbo drew the hosts level, holding off a challenge before powering home his shot in the 26th minute.
Ibarbo then won Cagliari a penalty five minutes before the break in a challenge that saw Catania's Nicola Legrottaglie sent off, but Alberto Frisson kept the visitors level by saving Ibarbo's spot-kick.
Substitute Pinilla scored the winner in the 84th minute, scoring from his own rebound to give Cagliari the full three points.
With the win, Cagliari moved up to ninth on 10 points. Catania are 16th with five points.
On target: 10-4
