CLOSE-UP OF ENTRANCE COVERED WITH GRAFFITI STORY: The often unloved Coppa Italia will get a moment in the spotlight as it reopens the Italian soccer season after the coronavirus stoppage, with Napoli's Stadio San Paolo getting a thorough clean on Friday (June 12) ahead of one of the semi-finals against Inter Milan.
Each team had to play only two matches, both at home, to reach the semis, thanks to the quirks of a format which seems designed to avoid the giant-killing romance which characterises the English and French Cups.
The final is scheduled for Wednesday (June 17).
In the Italian version, the top eight Serie A teams from the previous season do not enter the fray until the round of 16, by which time any minnows have almost certainly been eliminated.
Only 78 teams are allowed to enter in the first place, of which just 38 are from outside the top two divisions, compared to the FA Cup's total of 735 which includes a myriad of amateur and part-time teams. When Serie A teams face sides from lower divisions they are automatically drawn at home, further reducing the chances of an upset.
