Frank Liivak’s game lasted less long today (Napoli-Cagliari, Coppa Italia Primavera) as Saurini replaced the Estonian international on 49’ minutes with teammate Granata.

Until that moment the result was on a goalless stalemate: 0-0

During first half, Frank was remarkable for providing an assist to new signing Persano (41’) who tried to turn and score but was denied by Cagliari Primavera goalkeeper Carboni, outstanding for his side in first half.

The change was due to Luperto being sent off few minutes earlier into the second half as the Napoli defender pulled down Anedda as last man.

Napoli had to switch from 4-3-3 to 4-4-1 and Liivak had to watch the rest of the game from the touchline.

All the emotions of the game were packed in six minutes from 62’ minutes to 68’. First Napoli opened the score with Selva (shot from distance picking up Carboni’s only mistake of the game); then Cagliari pulled level with a penalty (Barella, 66’) only two be reached two minutes later thanks to another penalty converted by Palmiero (Bifulco was pulled down by Scintu after a slaloming dribbling in the box).

Napoli underwent Cagliari’s siege since, after another red card (Prezioso), they were compelled to end the game down to 9 men.

The 2-1 full-time result granted Napoli Primavera access to the second round where they will face Catania Primavera on the 29th of October.

During the weekend, Napoli will travel to Sicily already in order to take on Palermo Primavera. A lucky venue for Frank Liivak since he scored his first Italian goal ever last year in the Coppa Italia Primavera at the Santa Flavia pitch.
