Football: Lazio Knock 10-Man Milan Out Of Italian Cup

Posted on: December 4, 2008

ROME: Lazio fought back to claim an extra-time 2-1 Italian Cup win over 10-man AC Milan on Wednesday and claim a place in the quarter-finals.

Milan had Brazilian star Emerson sent off in the 69th minute but they still took the lead at the San Siro through Andriy Shevchenko in the 77th minute.

Lazio levelled in the dying moments when Giuseppe Favalli brought down Goran Pandev and Argentine Mauro Zandev scored from the penalty spot for his first goal since November 9.

Pandev grabbed the winner in the second minute of extra-time when he followed up a snapshot from Zarate, which had been parried by Milan keeper Dida, to score and secure Lazio’s first win over Milan at the San Siro in five years.

They will now face either Fiorentina or Torino for a place in the semi-finals. – AFP/de
