Bologna are through to the next phase of the Coppa Italia and will face Napoli after getting the better of Livorno 1-0.
The Rossoblu emerged with the slender victory at the Stadio Dall’Ara thanks to a first half goal from Cristian Pasquato.
The angled drive from the Juventus youth product took a decisive deflection to wrong-foot the Amaranto goalkeeper after 35 minutes.
However, Serie B side Livorno threatened an equaliser almost by mistake, as shot-stopper Filippo Lombardi had to rush back to clear a wayward Archimede Morleo backpass off the line.
Bologna travel to Napoli for the Fifth Round tie on December 19.
