Coppa Italia round-up

Hernanes puts Lazio through

January 10, 2012

Hernanes scored a last-minute winner to fire Lazio into the last eight of the Coppa Italia with a thrilling 3-2 win over Verona.

Goals from Andre Dias (44) and Tommaso Rocchi (57) looked to have set the home side on their way to a comfortable win against their Serie B opponents at the Stadio Olimpico.

But Verona have been in excellent form recently and hit back quickly to level through substitutes Emanuele Berrettoni and Marco D'Alessandro, who both scored within six minutes of coming on.

However, Hernanes grabbed the winner in the last minute to book a place in the next round for the Serie A side in front of a crowd of 47,000.
