Atalanta did not bother with Cagliari


Atalanta made almost 30 shots on goal for Cagliari and won with 3:1 the eighth final match between them from the tournament for the Italian Cup. Alexei Miranchuk, Luis Muriel and Bosko Shutalo were right for the `Bergamas`, and Ricardo Sotil scored for the guests from Sardinia. Cagliari goalkeeper Guillermo Vicario had a series of brilliant interventions that prevented Atalanta from achieving a more convincing victory. In the next round, the team of Can Piero Gasperini will meet Lazio or Parma. Atalanta had 4 consecutive successes before today`s match, and Cagliari was in a series of 3 losses. Alejandro Gomez again did not play because of his conflict with Gasperini, but even without him the hosts had no problems. The Russian national Miranchuk gave Atalanta the lead in the 43rd minute, after his team missed several clear positions, and once the crossbar prevented Muriel. Curiously, Miranchuk scored in his debut matches in Serie A, the Champions League and the Italian Cup. Muriel hit the crossbar once more before the visitors equalized with their first dangerous attack. The goal was scored by Sotil in the 55th minute. Very soon, however, Luis Muriel scored from a small angle after a pass from Robin Gossens, and in the 64th minute defender Shutalo scored close for 3:1.

In the end Sotil was stopped by the crossbar, but Cagliari had no other positionsVicario saved the Sardinians from defeat.
