Coppa Italia goals: Inter struggled to overcome Genoa

Inter Milan 3 – Genoa 1 (AET) (Coppa Italia, January 13, 2009) (Longer highlights here.) Genoa conceded an early penalty and had Biava sent off in the process, only for Adriano to see his spot kick wonderfully saved. (First half highlights here.) With fifteen minutes remaining Adriano made a mends by heading in the opener. But Genoa’s Marco Rossi levelled for four minutes later with a stunning drive into the top corner to take the game into extra time. Inter retook the lead early in extra time, Zlatan’s shot popped out of the keeper’s grasp and Cambiasso was on hand to score the rebound. And Inter quickly opened up a two goal cushion when Ibrahimovic netted a cheeky goal past the keeper after his initial shot had been saved.


Pisa 1 – Rimini 3 (Serie B, January 12, 2008) The visitors went ahead when Vitiello met a Regonesi cross to head home. Vantaggiato added a second from the penalty spot. Rimini went 3-up with a superb Vantaggiato free-kick before Pisa struck back with a Greco strike.
