Bergamo, 12 January 2022 – Two goals are enough for theAtalanta to overcome the Venezia and reach the quarter-finals of the Italian Cup: the Nerazzurri are once again dragged by Luis Muriel, bomber with suitcase in hand but always decisive in every challenge.

However, a control by the Var is needed before they can celebrate, as the touch with the shoulder seemed suspicious in the eyes of the referee. In the end the advantage is decreed for the Nerazzurri who try again with an overlap of Pezzella just for Muriel. Venezia fails to build any action and in the 43rd minute risks also being doubled with the header of Koopmeiners that is printed on the crossbar.
