Naples conquered the pass to the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup beating 2-0 at Perugia in San Paolo. It is the third triumph of the Neapolitans in almost three months in all competitions, the second of the Gattuso era. The southerners, who had a series B team in front and played at San Paolo (which is still very quiet due to the ultras’ strike), obviously dominated the confrontation, but Cosmi’s were tactically ordered and did not grant him many occasions.‘Ringhio’ made rotations and started out with Lozano instead of Callejón: the Mexican, combining with Llorente, forced the 1-0 penalty, signed by Insigne. The Neapolitan, before the break, marked another maximum penalty, this time granted by a clear hand of Iemmello: the tip of the visitors, in the discount of the first half, wasted the opportunity to put theirs back in the game, failing a penalty struck with the help of the VAR by another hand, this time from Hysaj. Ospina neutralized it, which canceled the serious mistake caused by the defeat against Lazio on Saturday. With the game already sentenced, the second part had little history, and will be remembered for the premiere of Demme, first Diego to wear the shirt azzurra since the goodbye of Maradona. I replace Fabián, who from now on will no longer play in the position of positional midfielder, in which he was never comfortable: Naples, for that role, signed the former Leipzig and Lobotka, arrival that will become official between tonight and morning. In the quarterfinals, Southerners will face the winner of Lazio-Cremonese.
