COPPA ITALIA HISTORY
Atalanta are making their fourth appearance in the TIM CUP Final, and their first since 1996.
Their lone triumph came in 1963, and if they win this year, it will be the longest wait between
cup wins in the history of the competition (56 years – current record – Lazio – 40 years between
1958 and 1998).
Atalanta are the 11th team to reach at least four TIM CUP Finals. Every other team with four or
more final appearances has won the competition at least twice.
No team has had more success in the last 21 editions of the TIM CUP than Lazio, who have
won the tournament five times since 1998. This will be Lazio’s eighth final in that time, more
than any other team (Juventus – 7 appearances since 1998).
A win would give Lazio their seventh TIM CUP title, equaling Inter for third-most in the history
of the competition (Juventus 13, Roma 9).

ROAD TO THE FINAL
Atalanta’s road to the final included a 3-0 win over four-time defending champions Juventus in
the quarter-final. They survived a nine-goal semi-final (5-4 on aggregate) against Fiorentina to
reach the final.
Atalanta scored ten goals en route to the final, scoring at least twice in all four matches. Six
different Atalanta players scored on their road to the final, led by Duvan Zapata’s three goals.
Lazio eliminated both Milan teams to reach the final, knocking Inter out on penalties after a 1-
1 draw in the quarter-final before beating Milan 1-0 on aggregate over two legs in the semifinal.
Ciro Immobile has been involved in five of Lazio’s six goals in this season’s TIM CUP, scoring
three times and assisting twice. Immobile scored twice and assisted once against Novara in the
round of 16, before scoring Lazio’s lone goal in the quarter-final and assisting Joaquin Correa
on the only goal in the semi-finals.
