Coppa Italia has come to the latter stage. Four teams finally managed to go through the last four. They are the reigning Champions, Napoli, Juventus, Inter Milan and Atalanta. The first two had a fairly easy win to seal one place at the semifinal, while the last two had to struggle to get past their contenders in a quarter final.
Napoli dismantled Spezia 4-2 in their home turf. Their winning goals were scored by Kalidou Koulibaly, Hirving Lozano, Matteo Politano and Eljif Elmas while Spezia could only reply twice by Emmanuel Gyasi and Gennaro Acampora. Meanwhile, La Vecchia Signora trashed SPAL 4-0. Alvaro Morata netted through a penalty, followed by Gianluca Frabotta, Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa.
In the meantime, Nerrazurri crushed AC Milan 2-1 at the quarter final. They were one goal behind as Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted an opener. Yet, Inter pulled one back by Romelu Lukaku’s penalty. Their almost outcast, Christian Eriksen netted a late winning goal. La Dea was also involved in a tight affair while taking on Lazio. They traded goals and attack before coming out as a winner 3-2. Berat Djimsiti opened the scoring but Biancoceleste responded twice by Verdat Muriqi and Francesco Acerbi. In three minutes, Ruslan Malinovsky levelled before Alexander Miranchuk bagged the winning goal.
