Cagliari vs Atalanta
Date: Monday, 14th January 2019
Kick-off at 16.30 UK/ 17.30 CET
Venue: Sardegna Arena (Cagliari).
The Round of 16 of the Italian domestic cup has an exciting fixture to offer in the form of Cagliari vs Atalanta.
The Islanders come to this tie on top of a tough win they secured against fellow lower-tier team Genoa, at home. The referee had to brandish six yellow cards in this quite high-tempered game. The final scoreline was 1-0.
Josip Ilicic came in as a substitute in the 63rd minute in Atalanta’s last game and recorded a quick-fire hat-trick to deliver a huge win for his team. The hosts were blinded at the end of the ninety minutes by the six goals they conceded in front of their home crowd.
