For the fifth time in its history, Atalanta is in the final of the Italian Cup, the second in the last three years, with Gian Piero Gasperini as the leader. But to meet Juventus, against which the trophy will be played on May 19, the Goddess still had to suffer more than the 3-1 final against Napoli in the semi-final return to Gewiss Stadium (0-0 in the first leg) (0-0 in the first leg).

Due to the tension between President De Laurentiis and coach Rino Gattuso that can be touched by hand game after game, the visitors, while in difficulty due to absences and a volcanic setting, even had the final ball, thrown by Osimhen on Gollini’s body, after being dominated for most of the race, a quarter of an hour from the end.

The show of the Goddess starts after an attempt from outside Insigne, risky, but on the side of it. The dances open at 10 ‘Duvan Zapata: the Colombian breaks away from the very low line of the men of Gattuso, exploits the confusion between Hysaj and Maksimovic, who reproach themselves for pressing him out, and with the right unloads a very heavy shot diagonal to the corner.

Ospina, Atalanta in front, can do nothing. The blow is sustained by Napoli and 6 ‘capitulates again later. It is a splendid maneuvered action this time, that of the Goddess: Gosens fishes in the region for Zapata played first for Pessina, who makes no mistake just in front of Ospina. It’s 2-0 and they can already smell the finale in Bergamo. Since the guests still seem totally out of the game. Osimhen disagrees with others, football included.

And in the 42nd minute, Gattuso also lost Hysaj (injured), replaced by Mario Rui. For the Neapolitans, who risk the gong on the diagonal out of Muriel (37 ‘) and on the high paw in the scrum of Zapata (45’), the 2-0 at the interval is therefore almost fine.
