Coppa Italia: AC Milan Through To Quarterfinals After Beating Torino On Penalties

Coppa Italia: AC Milan Through To Quarterfinals After Beatin

Torino kept Serie A leaders AC Milan at bay for 120 minutes with penalties needed by the San Siro outfit to progress in Tuesday's Coppa Italia last-16 tie.

Milan booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia with a penalty shoot-out victory over Torino at San Siro following a goalless draw after extra time.

The Serie A leaders eased to a 2-0 win when the sides met in the league on Saturday but found it a lot tougher to break down their opponents who are 28 points worse off in the league.

Milan goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma was given his marching orders from the bench after protesting for a penalty for a tackle on teammate Rafael Leao but the Referee waved it away and gave Gigi a red card for dissent - as he will miss next Coppa Italia match.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic squandered the best early opening on his first start since November 22 and Milan then dominated the second half, twice hitting the post and having a penalty shout turned down.

Neither side could find a way through in the additional 30 minutes, but it was the hosts who prevailed on spot-kicks to set up a tie with Fiorentina or Inter - Hakan Calhanoglu scoring the decisive penalty after Ciprian Tatarusanu had denied Tomas Rincon.
