MADRID, Jan. 21 (SportsFinding) –
Naples qualified on Tuesday for the semifinals of the Italian Cup after winning Lazio by the minimum (1-0) thanks to a goal by Lorenzo Insigne at two minutes of play in a rugged game that ended with twenty players on the field after the expulsions of Elseid Hysaj, in the premises, and Lucas Leiva in the Roman painting.
The next rival of FC Barcelona in the knockout stages of the 'Champions' will continue in the 'Coppa' after having shown a lot of endurance in a duel he had everything. Insigne opened the account very soon, but Lazio – the current champion of the competition – could have matched ten minutes with a penalty from Ciro Immobile.
However, the maximum battering of Serie A slipped when he was going to hit the leather and sent the penalty over the crossbar. Later an expulsion arrived in each team, but the whole of Gennaro Gattuso -with Alley and Fabian in the green- could hold to take the ticket to 'semis'.
