Highlights: Napoli 2-2 Cremonese

Napoli used the opportunity to debut their new white and red Valentine's kit and splashed a kiss on the chest, but there wasn't much love to start.Facing their much-changed line-up, Cremones deservedly took the lead in the 18th minute when a pass went over everyone to the back post and Charles Pickel blitzed to open the scoring.

Napoli responded well to the setback, with referee Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi dismissing a penalty appeal despite an angry appeal from the Cremonese, But Caputi led the first all-female team of referees in Coppa Italia history.A thunderous Tanguy Ndombele was saved by Marco Carnesecchi, who felt he had been fouled in the scuffle, before seeing Juan Jesus nodding after Giovanni Simeone's header hit the crossbar, with the Argentine's next header clean just two minutes later , deftly turning the corner.
Although Napoli were not at their free-flowing best, which is understandable given the 10 changes in the outfield, they seemed ready to end the game comfortably when disaster befell them, with three minutes remaining in the game from the right. A cross was headered by the brilliant Felix Afena Gyan to force extra time.Furthermore, Leonardo Cernicola was sent off as Grigio Rossi's poor discipline finally caught up to them and Napoli took advantage almost immediately, only for Simeone's empty goal attempt to hit column.

A ferocious thunderstorm broke out shortly before the penalty shoot-out and the visitors won after goals from Matteo Politano, Simeone, Piotr Zielinski and Victor Osimhen for Napoli The game ended, but Stanislav Lobotka missed key shots, while Cremones' five shots were perfect.
