Coppa Italia: AC Milan and Fiorentina through to quarter-finals
Last Updated: 14/12/17 12:09am
AC Milan got their first win under manager Gennaro Gattuso with a 3-0 victory over Hellas Verona in Coppa Italia.
Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has come under criticism from the Milan faithful in recent weeks, started for the Rossoneri as they cruised through to a comfortable win.
Former Liverpool winger Suso opened the scoring in the 23rd minute before Alessandro Romagnoli tapped in from point-blank range seven minutes later following some fine work from Andre Silva.
Cutrone made it 3-0 with an instinctive header from a corner. Lucas Biglia almost made it four, but Milan eased to victory and will now face fierce rivals Inter in the quarter-final.
Former Aston Villa midfielder Jordan Veretout sealed a dramatic 3-2 comeback win for Fiorentina against Sampdoria after they were pegged back twice.
Khouma Babacar put Fiorentina in front before Edgar Barreto turned in Sala's shot to make it 1-1 at half-time. But Sampdoria would cancel out Veretout's 59th-minute strike through Gaston Ramirez's penalty.
Veretout would get the last laugh, though, as he converted from the spot in injury time following a VAR decision which showed Nicola Murru handled the ball in the box.
Fiorentina will now face Lazio or Cittadella on Boxing Day in the quarter-final.
