Inter's slim hope of UEFA Champions League football next season took another hit after a 2-0 Serie A loss in Trieste.
Cagliari's win came in slightly controversial fashion as Matias Silvestre was deemed to have fouled Mauricio Pinilla in the box for the opening goal from the penalty spot. Pinilla then finished Inter off with a late second at the Stadio Nereo Rocco.
Inter have little time to feel sorry for themselves as they face Roma on Wednesday in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final.
Roma lead the tie 2-1 ahead of the return leg this week.
"Where we will go from here? We want to play well against Roma on Wednesday," Zanetti told Inter Channel.
"There's no point talking about this match, we can't do anything about it, we've missed an opportunity. Now we need to think about performing well on Wednesday.
"The referee got the penalty decision all wrong. We're gutted about the result, and it makes you angry. But it's at times like these that we find the strength to move on and become a better team."
"We've had many matches like that this season, where we've come away empty-handed. But that's the way this season's gone. At the end of the campaign we'll look back and review everyone's performance. Then we'll begin to prepare for next season as we always do."
"Now we'll try to prepare in the best possible way for Wednesday. We hope to get a result that will see us into the final."
