Ten-man Torino eliminate AC Milan from the Italian Cup | Football News – Thelocalreport.in

Michel Adopo knocked AC Milan out of the Italian Cup in the round of 16 on Wednesday with the only goal in Torino’s 1-0 win with 10 men at the San Siro after extra time. France’s Adopo scored the winning goal from a low cross from his compatriot Brian Bayeye in the 114th minute of an interesting match in which Koffi Djidji was sent off with 21 minutes left in regulation.

In next month’s quarterfinals, Torino will face either Sampdoria or Fiorentina, who meet on Thursday.

Roma host Genoa in the last game on Thursday, while the remaining four games are scheduled for next week.

Milan’s defeat, which started with a second line-up, comes after they squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Roma on Sunday.

That draw allowed Napoli to extend their lead over the Italian champions at the top of Serie A to seven points.

Stefano Pioli’s tired-looking side fired 32 shots over the course of the game, but only eight of them were on target, only three of them from inside the box.

Milan travel to Lecce in Serie A on Saturday after Napoli host Juventus, who are level on points with Milan, on Friday night.

Inter Milan also advanced to the next round after beating Serie B side Parma 2-1 on Tuesday, also after extra time at the San Siro.
