Naples had a negative start of 2018. Coach Maurizio Sarri team was disqualified by Italy’s Cup in the early days of the New Year. His team was defeated with 1-2 score by Atalanta in the quarter of finals at the end of a match that was played in ‘San Paolo’ stadium.
Atalanta’s success proved that this team is capable of reserving bitter surprises for everyone. Castagne and Gomez were the authors of the goals for Atalanta while Mertens only shortened the distances through his goal. However, Naples lacked the necessary power to equalize the figure and avoid the defeat.
The Albanian National Team players Etrit Berisha and Elseid Hysaj entered the field as starter players but at the end the winner was the Pristina born goalkeeper Berisha.
Atalanta will now play against the winner of Turin-Juventus duel in the semifinals of Italy’s Cup.
