AC Milan 4-2 Torino (AET)

Torino were moments away from a place in the Coppa Italia Semi Finals, but late heartbreak resulted in an extra time defeat to AC Milan on Tuesday evening.

The home side took an early lead through Giacomo Bonaventura following good work by Ante Rebic. However, Toro got a deserved equaliser from an unlikely source as Brazilian centre back Bremer galloped forward and finished like a prolific striker.

With twenty minutes remaining, Toro took the lead when Ola Aina's excellent crossed was headed home by Bremer, to get his second goal of the game.

In the first minute of injury time, substitute Hakan Calhanoglu equalised for Milan as his long range strike deflected off Koffi Djidji and past Salvatore Sirigu in the Toro goal to take the match to extra time.

In the first half of extra time, Toro had some good opportunities but were unable to find a breakthrough. The Granata were then punished as at the start of the second half, Calhanoglu fired and excellent shot past Sirigu to give the home side the lead. Moments later, Milan added a fourth goal when substitutes Rafael Leão and Zlatan Ibrahimovic combined to ensure it was the Rossoneri who progressed to the Semi Finals.

Forza Toro
