Atalanta continues to be scary and eliminates Lazio with ten

The Nerazzurri reached the Cup semi-finals by beating the Romans 3-2, who played almost the second half in numerical superiority.


After the absurd derby in Milan that we experienced last night, Lazio and Atalanta promised to give more spectacle in the Italian Cup and they fulfilled a great 3-2, which qualified Bergamo for the semifinals. The opponents, with few rotations, played at a great pace from the first minutes of the crash. La Dea went ahead early, after a corner in which Reina neutralized an attempt by Palomino and Muriqi, trying to clear, hit Djimsiti, author of the 1-0. The biancocelesti reacted well, thanks above all to the great night that Acerbi experienced. The defender first assisted Muriqi himself with a great cross and then stole a ball in the middle of the field and went alone to the rival goal, getting rid of Palomino and making it 1-2. Before the break, however, there was time for another goal, the one that was born from a personal play by Muriel, who with a low cross found Malinovskyi in the area, whose shot was worth 2-2.

The intensity did not decrease at the beginning of the resumption, when Palomino knocked down Lazzari, who went alone in front of Gollini's goal. The referee sent off the home defender, but Atalanta knew how to create danger also outnumbered. And Miranchuk, shortly after, made it 3-2 receiving a pass from Romero, who was ready in anticipation of Hoedt. Gasperini, there, took De Roon and Zapata off the bench, with the Colombian protagonist right away. The striker forced a penalty colliding with Hoedt, but Reina neutralized his shot, confirming his incredible moment of form. The paradón of the Spanish gave the biancocelesti strength and enthusiasm for the final arreón, in which they lacked aim and luck: Gollini, with another great intervention, neutralized a header from Acerbi on the horn. The classification, then, went to Atalanta, which awaits the winner of Napoli-Spezia in the semifinals. Madrid's rival in the Champions League has not lost a game since November.
