The penalty lottery rewards Atalanta, in its second consecutive final at “We Love Football”, and condemns Inter. The Bergamo come out victorious at the end of a blocked race, played in an organized way by two strong teams from the defensive point of view but unable to find the right pick to find the way of the network. The first opportunity is for Atalanta, who at 8 ‘close to the goal with Oliveri head: the ball does not find the door defended by Magri. Two minutes later Young – among the best in the field – breaks right and cross, Magri saves everything. The Inter looks forward to 24 ‘with Pucci who downloads for Fabbian, whose right is the response of Rodegari. Shortly after it is Pezzini to engage the orobico goalkeeper with a right from a tight angle. It is the last thrill of the first half. In the second half Inter started better, immediately dangerous with Politi who freed himself with a series of drunken feints and kicked out a little. Inter again in the 14th minute, which almost passed by taking advantage of Rodegari’s insecure exit: the ball hit a defender but did not enter. After the initial outburst, Atalanta picks up the game and in the final, after Rosa’s splendid scissor on Perego’s cross, which comes out slightly, comes close to winning the goal with Lozza, whose header goes off on the flick of a breath . So we go to the penalties, where the errors of Uccellini – still among the best for Inter – and Pucci are decisive. Lozza is cold and gives all’talanta another great day of football at the “Dall’Ara”.
