Parma own goal sees Lazio through in Cup | Ralph-Lauren

Must Read


A late own goal by Parma goalkeeper Simone Colombi has sent Lazio through to the Italian Cup quarter-finals with a 2-1 win.

Thursday’s match appeared to be heading for extra time when, in the final minute, Vedat Muriqi’s header came off the base of the right post and went in off Colombi.

Muriqi hit the post in the first half too, as did Andreas Pereira, moments before Lazio eventually took the lead in the 23rd minute when Marco Parolo headed in Pereira’s cross.

Parma could have levelled in the 72nd but Valentin Mihaila fired off the crossbar from point-blank range.

Mihaila did get the equaliser seven minutes from time when a through ball caught the Lazio defence napping and the Romanian beat goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha one-on-one to lift the ball into the bottom right corner.

Lazio will meet Atalanta in next week’s quarter-finals as holders Napoli play Spezia, Juventus tackle SPAL and AC Milan take on Inter Milan in a city derby.
