Victory and qualification to the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup for Napoli who manages to get the better of the Spezia only in the second half, precisely in the space of three minutes, but in a totally legitimate. Well Di Carlo’s team until his legs held up, then prevailed the highest technical quality of the hosts: the Insigne and Rog assists for Giaccherini Gabbiadini networks are the two pieces of bravura that have ended up making the difference . Three debuts from the first minute in Naples: Rafael (the first season, the author of a good save from Maggiore in the first half time), Rog (grew with each passing minute) and Giaccherini (nell’inedita as vice Calleon). So many changes compared to Saturday night with the return of Albiol in defense and Maksimovic, May instead of Hysaj on the right and the combination Diawara-Zielinski median. Gabbiadini, near goodbye, left holder into the path of the center. Charles, who prepared the game in just three days, opted for an offensive deployment (though to be commended) with Small behind the strikers, but initially kept in Granoche bench.
SPICE BRAZEN – Well guests in the first half, despite the Naples after three minutes was already ahead with Zielinski, good to take advantage of a beautiful Insigne played to open space in front of Chichizola: Polish net jumped Valentini and beating the goalkeeper with a guest a precise shot of dish at the far post. The Spezia, driven by three hundred fans in tow, did not give up trying to press up to stop the dribble of Naples that was on the outside rein especially with Insigne very inspired and unfortunate is the 24 ‘, when an assist by Giaccherini centrava pole tip good location, which at 28 ‘(shooting around after a Gabbiadini heel with a little side of the ball). The effrontery of Spezia was rewarded by goals from Small (Naples doc who do not exulted) than with the left-hander beat Rafael, thanks to the deviation of Albiol after a nice downhill More to the left. With the amount she went to the range.
THREE MINUTES, THREE MINUTES ONLY – Logical that Napoli get up the pace in the second half looking more vertical game and the offensive summit Gabbiadini (his first dangerous shot of the second half) but Spezia never let go also share with fullbacks Best and De Col. the latter, however, he was cut from behind by Giaccherini on the occasion of the new benefit of Naples: a brushstroke of the Insigne assists for Giak she passed well to the right flight. Napoli then it puts only 180 seconds to fall the trio finally Rog was leaving behind shyness and opponents and put on a ball that Manolo Gabbiadini bed had only push the net for the three to one. Result to that point in ice and space for replacements, including the highly anticipated, with the debut in blue Pavoletti (entered Gabbiadini). “Pavo goal” has had time to devour a big chance in the final few steps on Callejon shore, as if to keep his first exultation for a more important circumstance.
